KarinaStayed November 2019
The property fulfilled all our needs - it was very warm when we stayed, and our two youngest enjoyed 'camping' out in the attached garage where there was two bunk beds. They also enjoyed taking the kayak down to the lake (with adult supervision), it was great to see life vests available too. Decent sized fridge so plenty of room to keep your goods cold if staying for many days. Older style of washing machine but did the job just fine.

Excellent location, perfect for the dogs. The property is basic but functional, we'd happily stay here again.

Would never stay in this property again
We appreciate your feedback Sandra - we always strive to ensure the listing and photos accurately portray a property and we're sure you'd agree this is the case with this property. It is definitely a well priced option for accommodation in Taupo which suits a lot of our guests.
