Guest reviews for Rahui Spa Escape

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed September 2020

We really enjoyed our stay at this house, ideal for our large family. The bed in bedroom (level 2) is Queen not King as stated on website. A couple of things that could be improved would be the Wifi (poor) and a handrail up the stairs on dining room side. We would definitely rent this house again.

Stayed July 2020

We loved our stay here. On arrival the house was toasty and warm, clean and inviting. The house is well appointed and everything was easy to find. We will definitely be booking again.

Stayed March 2020

Spacious house with lovely kitchen and dining area. We had a great stay here in a lovely neighbourhood. We found it unusual that the main toilet was in the spa room, and the only other toilet in the ensuite. It didn't bother us, but is slightly inconvenient.

Stayed January 2020

Great place to stay, great location, pillows were a little to hard and high, very hot house, fans would of been great especially in the upstairs bedroom, there was no escape from the heat, even with all the windows open and fan ceiling which just blew hot air every where, even another aircon in the dining would of been great.

Thanks for your review Morag. While it has been an unseasonably hot summer, we apologise that the heat pump didn't cool the house sufficiently. We're glad you enjoyed Rahui Spa Escape overall, and while we can't control the weather we'd love to welcome you back for a cooler stay in the future!

A very nicely appointed and roomy property with all amenities. Would be very happy to rent again

Stayed November 2019

Great place in a great location and perfect for our girls weekend! Loved the spa, deck and it was a bonus to be able to bring the dog!

Stayed November 2019

Great house for the Round Taupo bike ride especially with a spa.

Stayed July 2019

Absolutely lovely property, we didn't want to leave! Very thankful to be able to bring our fur-babies with us! Property manager Vicky was very easy to communicate with and very friendly. Would love to return again sometime!

Stayed June 2019

The property is very spacious with adequate heating and great ammenities. It was quiet and had some fantastic touches like the spa. Internet isn’t very useful and I would suggest taking extra towels. Plenty of parking and good value for money. Would definitely recommend but consider taking a pillow as most of our group didn’t like extremely high pillows and this is all the property had - although the beds were very comfy this was a bit much. I would stay again though for sure :)

Stayed May 2019

Fantastic house in Taupo! Great location and area. Huge house for our family of 6 adults and a baby. Everything we needed and more. Loved the views and the spa pool too!

Stayed March 2019

Home away from home, easy to maintain, overall property in and out EXCELLENT LIKE A FIVE STAR HOTEL RATING EVEN BETTER.

Stayed February 2019

What a great place but... bring your own hand soap and toilet paper!! Note property is not fully fenced, not ideal for dogs outside at all. For Gas heater, hold down gas for ages to make it go.. found this out from mgr as we left :( if this doesn't bother you then what an awesome lake pad, spa was great, views are pretty.l, making this an excellent bach!!

Thanks for the feedback on Rahui Spa Escape Tala! The listing does clearly show the property is not fully fenced but we've updated this to say pets are welcome but it's recommended they're kept inside. We do provide hand soap and toilet paper for guests - your holiday manager is on hand to help out with things like this so please do feel free to contact them in future.

Stayed December 2018

We found this property to be very adequate for our family. There was great parking and spacious living and very central. We would recommend this home to any holiday makers.
