Stayed April 2022

Property was in a great location for exploring Taupo and very dog friendly. Great view over Lake Taupo. We experienced some maintenance and cleaning issues which we’ve raised with Bachcare and owner…however this did not stop us enjoying our holiday away.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for taking the time to feedback on the issues you experienced during your recent stay so that we could address this for you. We are delighted that you did enjoy a great time away at this wonderful spot!

This property is a great place to stay if you have a pet. Well secured section. It has amazing view It is an easy walk into town.

Stayed March 2022

Excellent bach all round. Great situation, beautiful views overlooking Taupo and the lake and ideal for a quick trip into town but yet far enough away from the madding crowd! Very well equipped with everything you could need, bright and airy. If you are wanting to take a more mature dog just be aware that the lawned area for toileting is down some steps which may pose a problem possibly. All in all, thoroughly enjoyed my stay, one of the best baches I have been to. Thank you very much and what a bonus being able to enjoy the wonderful walks in Taupo with my four legged friends. Highly recommended.

Tidy house - great view which the photos didn't do ay justice too - spent hours just standing on the deck or sitting up in bed looking out at the view. Close to town too.

Stayed January 2022

Fantastic place with lake views from the deck, kitchen and master bedroom. Great location, about a three minute drive to town. The property was clean and comfortable and was fully fenced. We really appreciated being able to take our dog. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed June 2021

Cozy home located in central Taupo, fully fenced which makes your stay full of happiness if you travel with furry friends, fire place with wood being provided to keep you warm during the winter. An instant feeling that owners take great care in their visitors and making sure their stay is awesome :-) Loved the place and will be back.

My second time staying at Kaihua and it was great. I especially appreciate the fact that I am able to have my dog inside with me. The property is fenced which is an extra plus and the neighbourhood is quiet. I will be back in the future for sure.

Awesome view to enjoy in a great little house. Very warm and great fire. Beds very comfortable. Shower needs updating. Be aware - no door separating 2 smaller rooms.

We loved our a stay here and so did the dogs! Views are impeccable, location is fantastic and the deck get loads of afternoon sun as well as good privacy. Also appreciated a house where there were no strict rules for dogs. Thanks for having us!

Stayed November 2019

This is a great spot which is super close to town (makes for a nice walk), and has a nice view of the lake. It was cost and comfortable and we were so stoaked to be able to bring our dog and for her to be in a fully fenced section.

Stayed September 2019

Lovely little nook with a great view! Wish we stayed longer to enjoy it more. Love how the centre is just a couple minutes drive.
