  • This is a small, low maintenance house

    This is a small, low maintenance house. Easy to have a family in. Not far from the lake. Great fireplace which was handy in the bad weather, with plenty of firewood on hand.

    This was the perfect "kiwi bach" escape, surrounded by lovely native bush and a stone throw away from the beautiful lake Taupo. The bach had everything you needed for a relaxing weekend and was easy to keep tidy. I will definitely be visiting again.

  • Location was so quiet and private

    Location was so quiet and private. We loved the fireplace with loads of dry firewood we were snug and warm even in the middle of winter. Lots of books and games got some great tips for fishing trout in those books. Would def come back, trout fishing our new hobby
