Stayed June 2020

Beautiful, spacious house that was well set up and wonderfully clean. Beautiful and private setting. The kids loved the tennis courts too.

Stayed November 2019

Fantastic property for a much needed escape. We had a great experience staying here and would highly recommend it to others. Only 20min to Taupo so easy access to town, however the property is surrounded by trees and bush which made it feel like we were in a private oasis. Large deck and bbq spaces made for great entertaining areas.

Stayed December 2018
