Family stay for parents 40th wedding anniversary
This property was most suitable for our purposes. Taupo was a central point for our four families to get together to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Via Del Lago served as an excellent base for going out to our various activities - walking to the Lake, a swim at the hot pools and dinner out at a restaurant. We had brought prepared food so didn't us the kitchen for cooking, but the facilities were perfectly adequate. With two upstairs lounge areas it was great for separate adult and children social interaction. Plus the downstairs area gave the children plenty of room to play without annoying each other. The pirate ship play area was well used by the children. We had great weather so the decking out the back was marvelous for lunch and socialising. We arrived late afternoon for our two night stay and it was easy to heat the whole house. While some of the furniture was a bit tired the beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of room for off street parking for all our vehicles. We would thoroughly recommend this property for any size group, and it was well suited for its maximum number without feeling at all overcrowded.
Great for large groups
We stayed at the property in a large group and the house catered well for us all. It is very spacious, warm and light. The house has a fantastic layout with two living areas, a lovely deck and a fully equipped kitchen. There is laundry facilities if required.
The house is located close to town and in a nice neighborhood.
The children enjoyed the outdoor forte area and sandpit.
The only downfall to this place was it needed a bit more attention to cleaning (cobwebs, dirty oven and mouldy curtains).
The downstairs area is a converted shed, which doesnt get a lot of light, so it is quite damp. There is a wood burner and dehumidifier in the room which helped a bit, but still very damp.
I would definitely stay at the house again, but not stay in the downstairs area.
We had 10 people staying and there was ample room for us all in separate beds. Plenty of rooms. We were all very impressed.
Instructions were very clear which makes life a lot easier. Owner very quick at replying to emails. All in all a great 2 days stay.
Comfortable and plenty of everything.
The property was easy to find and central. Heating was fantastic as we had several very cold nights, including the downstairs fire. Plenty of hot water was appreciated. Also appreciated the well equipped kitchen with enough dishes and pans for a small army, great dishwasher and oven. Although the can opener failed to work.
Outside the pirate ship was a hit with everyone, keeping the younger kids active and occupied and the grounds generally impressed. Cleanliness and upkeep was wonderful.
Thanks for the feedback and comments. Sorry the can opener did not work. It was replaced recently but it must have been a poor quality one. Will get this replaced.
We had a wonderful stay - Grandma and Grandad with two daughters and four young grandchildren as wel
We had a wonderful stay - Grandma and Grandad with two daughters and four young grandchildren as well as Great Grandma. Plenty of room for everyone and everything we needed. Warm and cosy. Great location. The only slight negative was that it smelt a little musty downstairs - but no big deal. Thank you so much. Highly recommended.
Great location and good for family groups
We enjoyed our stay at the house and kept warm even in the chilly Taupo temperatures. There is good space inside and it is a good option for family groups.
