“Was a lovely stay, down stairs was quite cold when we arrived, but once the heaters got put on in the rooms that came right.”
We would definitely try to book this property again.- Cherie, October 2023
“Great property, suited our needs but feel there needs to have a type of instruction book or something to advise that certain fuses are off, or where to find things as we arrived later in the evening it was extremely cold and took a while to find why the heat pump, hot water wouldnt go on ect.”
The panel heaters downstairs dont really heat up the areas and we needed to go buy a extra heater as was very cold. Electric blankets may of been a better idea in a cold winter town. We also only found the hot water bottles on the day we left, maybe if it was noted there were some to use and where, might of been better. But great property, worked well and would stay again just prob not in the heart of winter without preparing.- Tiffany, July 2023
As the owners, we are disappointed that the power and hot water were not turned on for your arrival, I have contacted our manager and passed on your comments. With regard to the heaters downstairs, these should also have been turned on for your arrival and the doors closed to keep the heat in, they do warm the rooms quite well if turned on earlier in the day and left on the whole time of your stay. There is also underfloor heating in the bathrooms for your use. We hope you enjoyed Taupo and look forward to your return in the future. Kind Regards, The Owners Property Owner

“Excellent location and very nice accommodation.”
Would definitely recommend or stay again. One small thing was the BBQ hot plate was too small to cook for a group of people. Thanks David- David, October 2022
“A lovely comfortable home.”
Loved the layout and the quiet neighborhood. Great having the double garage for our cars. The underfloor heating in the bathrooms was so nice too. The only things lacking was a clock in the lounge (for people that don't wear watches or have phones ...my mother - in -law ! ) and wifi. Otherwise we had a lovely stay. Thankyou.- Jill, October 2022
“Downstair room a bit cold.”
Clothes Dryer didn’t work- Phuong, July 2022
very clean and comfortable. Only problem was no internet. I never checked this when I booked but I think in this day and age this is an easy facility to offer. Also the cell phone coverage was sketchy.- Jodi, July 2022

Its a nice walk down to the river Bank and cool to see people on the bungy. A real shame that Cherry Island has now closed. Plenty of space for 2 families and nice having 2 bathrooms. Very close drive into town.- Kelly, January 2022
