Stayed April 2022

The lake front location is spot on for families where the adults can sit and enjoy the view and children can play safely. Great parking as we had three vehicles plus boat. The house was well equipped. Ideal for joint family holiday, and close to the boat ramp.

Fantastic house located right on the lakefront. Plenty of sports equipment to borrow, and a perfect place to relax with a fire, or sit out on the deck. Totally recommend it.

Thank you again. We all had a blast.

Great location, good house only a skip to the boat ramp and able to park the boat up outside was fantastic. It's tidy, has everything you need and is reasonable for the price.

Hi Jules, we're glad you loved your stay!

Stayed January 2019

This holiday spot is magic, right on the lakefront you couldn't find a better spot. The house was a fabulous layout with plenty of space to accommodate our family. Home was clean and tidy when we moved in for the week so beautifully presented. Magazines and games provided extra activities to do and two expansive decks and a hammock provide ideal places to enjoy the magic of lake Taupo. A+++

Stayed December 2018

House location is fantastic, great views, seconds to the water, and just 20 minutes drive to town, or 2 minutes to local shop. The house is large enough to accommodate three generations perfectly. Well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and ample seating in the lounge. We'd love to make this place our summer go-to.

Stayed September 2018

Beautiful place . The home needs more care few damaged/broken things in the house. For a lower price per night it would have fit perfect for what we got.
