    A character cottage in a beautiful setting with a huge deck looking out on a wonderful garden. The house is warm with a very efficient wood burner. Strongly recommended.

  • Second time that my family have stayed in 2016 - love it

    Second time that my family have stayed in 2016 - love it. Rain or shine it fits the bill. Location is great - quiet small community that is friendly if you need company but private if you dont. Short drive to Taupo/Turangi. walk to the river and the native birdlife abundant. We will definitely return!

    Bert's is a wonderful old style bach with the most gorgeous outdoor area - simple and full of bird life. Close to the river and the lake. Perfect.
