  • Really clean

    Really clean. Love the extra room (partially converted the garage in to a bedroom) has been done really well. Location wise - lovely walk/run around the water front in to town.

  • Lovely spot, so close to the water

    Lovely spot, so close to the water. Heating was great for the winter. Was handy having 2toilets/bathrooms, comfortable beds. Hot water does need to be used sparingly or with 10min gaps between people. But really enjoyed the stay. Thanks!

    The location is awesome, walk down the steps of the house to the beach. Even though it isn't on the waterfront, it is almost better, as you don't have people staring in at you, but the beach is just a stone throw away. The bach is lovely, still in 1980's condition. Surprisingly spacious. Rainbow Point is a lovely part of Taupo. A bachy bach, perfect for a causal weekend without fuss.
