  • This is the second time our group have stayed at this property...

    This is the second time our group have stayed at this property and it feels like home! It has a wonderful location by the river and just a few minutes walk from Taupo central and views from almost every room. There are lots of spaces to sit, eat, relax and enjoy the environment. Everything you need is provided and the decor is modern and stylish. Thanks again Sally! (Hope the tomatoes have been tasty)

  • We went as a 3 generational family of 8 to Rangatira Park...

    We went as a 3 generational family of 8 to Rangatira Park and had a wonderful time. The house was absolutely luxurious with river or garden views from every window. There were so many treasures inside and everything was available for us to use. We enjoyed barbecues, the wood fire, playing croquet and hide and seek. The walk to town along the river was another highlight. Just perfect!

  • We had an amazing time away

    We had an amazing time away. This property has everything lots of space quite and some luxury things. Would stay again with a big group of people for sure. The fire was more than enough to keep the place warm. Views were out standing as well. The only negative was the bbq we couldn't use due to it having mold on it, but the oven and stove inside is really good so didn't need it. The bed down stairs in the flat is really not the best, its supper low and really soft.

  • Sally was a great host

    Sally was a great host. This is the most special place we've stayed in, a destination on its own, never mind proximity to all Taupo has to offer. The only downside was that we didn't plan to stay longer.
