The property is well appointed. An issue with the heat pump malfunction was handled . It took all day to revolve the issue with a good resolution

Lovely home, great location

Stayed May 2022

Very comfortable house for a family - great spaces. Great home for a summer stay. We had an autumnal stay with cold mornings - heatpump was not working... nor was dishwasher. Bachcare staff pursued the issue with Manager of the property and we were provided two column oil heaters - much better than the 2 fan heaters the size of a toaster! Check these appliances are working when booking. Again, manager needs to sharpen up administrative details - the first group of family members with a baby and toddler, having travelled for 5 hours, could not access the property at 3.35pm when arrival time was stated 3.00pm. They were told to wait another 10 mins..... apparently all due to a late departure of previous guest. Not our fault - earlier communication of this situation would have been appreciated! Potential to have a great stay in this home.

Thank you for your review, Vicki-Marie! We're glad to hear you had a nice time at Lake Retreat and that you enjoyed its location and ample spaces! We're sorry to hear some amenities weren't working and that there was a delay at check in. We're working with the property owners and local team to ensure this is all addressed.

Great place for a family getaway! Super quiet area, lovely large living/dinning/kitchen area. Beds are super comfortable, was great being able to make use of the washing machine too. Great wifi! Master bedroom was great as was away from living area so when our 3 month old was sleeping he wasn’t being disturbed. We have sent feedback to the property management team based on our experience on things like the outside garden, areas that needed more attention to re cleaning (couch/cupboards) but has not put us off. Was a shame that the garage was out of use as we had multiple vehicles due to travelling from different areas/times. Other items we have feed back on wouldn’t make or break someone’s stay so have directly sent suggestions to them :)

Holidaying with a boat? this is a great property with room to park both car and boat. Nestled in the bottom of the culdesac there is no traffic noise so a nice quiet location and close to Nukuhau boat ramp.

Stayed January 2022

We stayed at the lake retreat house over christmas break. My first impressions were that the house was well presented from the outside but inside the house was dirty and had not been cleaned very well, the beds were clean but the window ledges and surfaces had a thick layer of dust on them and had not been cleaned in a while. We were staying for almost a week and were given one roll of toilet paper, and no cleaning products. (apart from a dirty sponge) The kettle mircrowave and oven worked and there was plenty of space in the garage and in the house for our family. The booking said that the bach was suitable for all seasons and had a heat pump provided but you could not use this for cooling as it would drip inside. The BBQ which was of good quality had a passive aggressive laminated note inside it asking people to clean after each use but the brush provided had been completely worn down and we had to buy our own one to do this. The out side setting and space was nice, but the umbrella was broken and hit one of our children on the head with one of the arms when we tried to set it up for the first time . The dishwasher was faulty and could not do a complete cycle without giving up and sounding a continual fault alarm. The linen was good quality but there was no clear leaving direction on how we should vacate i feel that the house was long overdue a really deep clean.

The house was great and was as pictured. Very roomy and extremely clean and was a great house for 3 couples. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if going back to Taupo. Was only 5-10 min drive to city centre and there is a little shop just around the corner too which was handy.
