    Perfect for a larger group, we were two families totalling 4 adults and 5 children and did not even need to use two of the bedrooms. The place has plenty of room although the photos do not do it justice, it is much bigger than it looks. The kitchen is well stocked with more than enough plates and cooking utensils. Location is uphill and a bit out of town but parking in Taupo is free so no problem driving 5 minutes and leaving the car in town.
