  • Great location, handy to Taupo township and local tracks

    Great location, handy to Taupo township and local tracks. Good sized property for a larger group and plenty of books and games for the children and adults alike.

    loved the feel of being home away from home, in what felt like a rural retreat setting ,with the horses out the back, and the cuddly cats greeting me each morning. Everything there that one could need. would highly recommend the place to friends, and would stay there again :)

  • The outside area was amazing

    The outside area was amazing. So much room to play on the lawn and so relax on the deck. There was also plenty of room inside for our group.
