  • Great location away from the craziness of downtown Taupo

    Great location away from the craziness of downtown Taupo. The singing birds in the mornings are something else! Really enjoyed the backyard setting. The home had everything we coul want or need from laundry facilties to a fully appliance stocked kitchen.

    There was a dead cockroach in the kettle and we didn't use the kettle throughout the stay and other than that the property is OK and good location.
