French doors lead from the living area and open on to the rear deck and BBQ area under a wisteria pergola, a great place to relax in the afternoon sun, or under the fairy lights in the evening. In the winter months you can also curl up on the comfy sofas by the wood fire in the lounge.

The large lockable double garage is suitable for parking cars or a boat, storing mountain bikes and has plenty of extra space for the kids to play in on a rainy day.

The galley kitchen is in the heart of the house, looking onto the BBQ area and is well appointed with electric hobs, oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Dine indoors around the six-seater handcrafted hexagonal wooden dining table, a great place to enjoy the day's catch fresh from the Lake.

  • This is a great property to stay in

    This is a great property to stay in. Is well stocked with everything you need to feel at home. The spa was lovely and relaxing. The property is very sunny and has a wood fire and several heaters to keep you toastie in the winter. Its well situated close to the lake and reserves and boat ramp. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Would definitely stay again.

  • Bach was clean and well stocked

    Bach was clean and well stocked. Spa pool smelt pretty funky so I didn't fancy it, although the kids were happy to get in. Bedroom layout wouldn't suit everyone, so worth reading the description carefully. Location is fine, close to lake (no views), quiet area and no road noise. Panel heaters in the bedrooms but no heating other than the log fire in the living areas made it v cold in the autumn mornings. Could do with some extra heating to take the chill off in the shoulder season. Comfy beds.

  • Good location

    Good location. 10 minutes drive from central taupo. On quiet road. Slightly strange layout to house. Two bedrooms are reached via another bedroom meaning people have to walk through the room to get to the other two. One of the bathrooms is across the garden in the garage. Very nice inside with lots of seating. BBQ works well. Unfortunately the hot tub was broken during our stay which was the main attraction of the house. Would recommend as inexpensive place to stay for big group.
