Separate off street vehicle access and parking and private to you. Charming cottage with sunny decks, including covered area for shade. Lake views and open plan lounge with bed settee.

Be independent in the best area of Taupo, right by the lake, with the Lions Walk at your door step for walking and cycling. Bikes can be provided. Two boat ramps close at hand at 2 and 3 Mile Bays. Property has major reserve areas on its doorstep.

Very quiet and peaceful, a classy Taupo suburb. On local bus route to town and just a short drive.

Top quality bedding, including feather duvets and electric blankets for winter warmth. All linen is provided. Beds made up for your arrival. For winter cosiness and summer coolness there is a highly efficient heat pump/air conditioning unit. This heats the whole house. For back up oil heaters and an electric heater are left in the bedroom wardrobes, with a fan for summer coolness, but the extra heaters are unlikely to be needed.

Walk to Rainbow Point local store, takeaway- the Fish Box and eating and ale house and restaurant- the Ploughmans. Or enjoy a barbecue on the front deck. Highly efficient latest model heat pump provides winter cosiness and summer cooling.

A place to come back to. An excellent Taupo accommodation option. Warmly recommended by all guests. Known for being a very safe and peaceful street, away from the traffic and very close to the beautiful lakeshore environment.

This is an excellent place to base yourself to explore the wider district, coming back to a comfortable base every night.
