  • We really enjoyed our few days away in this lovely batch set...

    We really enjoyed our few days away in this lovely batch set in a beautiful and peaceful lakeside village. Location was good, 15mins from Taupo. Hope to stay again sometime.

  • A lovely cottage in a great location

    A lovely cottage in a great location. Handy to Taupo and also to the mountains. Lots of firewood which was great as we used the fire quite a bit.
