    Highly recommended to anyone that loves to take their furkids on holiday with them. Not only is the apartment spacious and clean with a nice secure garden, but there are so many thoughtful touches - from the inclusion of basic household necessities, down to full water bowls on arrival, toys, treats, bed and blankets for the furniture to make sure your beloved dog(s) are as comfortable as you are. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again.

  • This dog-friendly property is absolutely perfect

    This dog-friendly property is absolutely perfect. It was warm and beautifully lit when we arrived late evening after a long drive in wet, difficult conditions. We loved all the little touches that charmed us and made us feel immediately at home. Thank you.

    The apartment was really lovely, the bedrooms were spacious and the beds so comfortable. Everything has been well considered especially when it comes to being pet friendly,right down to the doggy bed,dog blankets and doggy treats! The location was ideal being so close to Taupo and Acacia Bay itself is really pretty. It was so nice to come back to the apartment after a day out sightseeing and sitting out in the garden with a glass of wine looking out over the bay. It was a delight to stay here.

    The location is fantastic and the property is the nicest place we have stayed. The bonus of it being so dog friendly makes it a must stay for anyone who likes to spoil their furkids. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Taupo and would give it the highest recommendation possible for anyone travelling with or without dogs. The best place ever for fur kids.
