  • Photos don't do this place justice

    Photos don't do this place justice. Very comfortable and close proximity to town centre so we were able to walk in and out. Beds were really comfy. Kitchen large and well stocked with plates, cups, glasses and crockery etc. Look forward to coming back here again.

    Property layout and accomodation was great. It was also well located next to a reserve and within walking distance of Taupo.

  • This is an amazing property

    This is an amazing property. The photos don't do it justice. Quirky, comfortable, clean, and warm. The kitchen is very well equipped. Nicely decorated. Comfy beds. Handy location too. Highly recommend it for a weekend away.
