Guest reviews for Lakeside Vistas Magic

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed July 2022

This property is not cheap. Therefore we expected a minimum standard of accomodation. We arrived in the rain to find the lockbox so well hidden we were thankful it wasn’t dark. The front yard was unkempt, muddy and dangerous. No dryer, which would have been ok in summer but not in winter when you have young the kitchen. one teabag. No washing up liquid. Other basics missing. No liquid soap in all the containers. Furniture old and uncomfortable. Beds were ok. One heated towel rail and 7 white towels creates a problem for a group. The location is excellent, so we made the most of it and had a good time. But we could not help but feel the owners were screwing us more than a little. Maybe they need to be encouraged to think about creating a more welcoming environment for people.

Perfect property for our family! Have stayed here before and always love it!

Stayed September 2021

Overall, we were very happy to be staying at this property. The location is first class with a beautiful view and the price was affordable. However, we didn't think the property genuinely had the facilities to provide for the maximum 10 adults allowed. We tried to be conservative with water use but the hot water system isn't adequate for 10 people and meant that some had to have cold showers. Seating was also crammed into the living area but can't really comfortably accommodate more than four or five people at a time. All that being said, we felt that the very reasonable price made the trip affordable for our group, and that you do get what you pay for. If a group of 10 is planning to stay here you just need to consider what level of comfort you are looking for, and how much time you want to spend relaxing there. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to stay.

Stayed March 2021

This is a great location & very comfortable house , Both made for a great stay

Stayed January 2021

This house is in an amazing location right on the lake and close to everything you want to experience in Taupo. A short walk/ride to Two Mile Bay, Five Mile Bay or even town. We swam in front of the house every day. Perfect for a family or group. The beds are really comfy and it is not a 'precious' house. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed January 2021

Fantastic house, best possible location, there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. Highly recommended!

Stayed December 2020

Stunning setting and lake view and a perfect facility for a peaceful family get-away. Spotlessly clean and well maintained.

Stayed November 2020

Really enjoyed our stay at 65 Rainbow point. Amazing location right on the lake the beds rooms inside the house were really comfortable. Great having two bathrooms. Lots of plates, bowls glasses etc. We had a fabulous time sitting on the deck in the sun reading relaxing going for bike rides and runs along the path then jumping into the Lake for a swim. Magical. Highly recommend just be aware it’s more suitable for 8 people not 10 as garage room requires upgrade.

Stayed January 2019

We loved the closeness to the Lake. The property was comfortable and met our needs

Stayed October 2018

Great place. We had a huge itinerary planned for our time in Taupo. But seeing as the house was so perfectly positioned on the lake and well set up we ended up spending a lot of time at the house on the lake instead, which was perfect. We will happily stay there again.

Stayed October 2017
