    This flat is beautifully decorated, very clean and tidy and a real pleasure to stay, with lovely gardens outside and use of the laundry was extremely appreciated. Only downside is the bedroom space is a little cramped and the flat is not very light and bright. But the kitchen area is bright and the gardens and decor go a long way to making up for limited light elsewhere.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at House of Zen

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at House of Zen. Really impressive Japanese-themed unit & garden, tastefully done. Very relaxed & friendly owners who were flexible to our needs (use of mountain bikes to get in and out of town was also helpful). Stayed over the IronMan weekend & owners took real interest in following my progress. Welcome drinks & fruit from the garden on arrival were appreciated too. Definitely would recommend.

    This is a nicely decorated and well equipped apartment with a lovely private Japanese garden. Its in a nice suburb just south of the main village and close to the lake . Its a lovely walk along the lake to get to shops and restaurants. but the kitchen was so well equipped that we ended up cooking at home several nights rather than braving the crowds in town. A great base for exploring Taupo and Tongariro
