Guest reviews for Riverside Villa

Stayed April 2022

Awesome apartment, would love to come back.

Stayed January 2022

The house itself is lovely - beautiful home, perfect location, exactly what we needed. Poor property management from Bachcare let this down for us.

Stayed December 2021

This is a gorgeous apartment very close to town, lovely views of marina and river. Lovely pool to use within the complex. Excellent security. Bottom level is decked out for children's fun. But there is no air con or fan and we experienced 30+ degrees.

Stayed August 2021

Lovely place to stay with amazing views of the river.

Stayed June 2021

Awesome property

Stayed June 2021

This is a stunning property. The secure parking and access was easy and the garage was a bonus, will definitely book again.

Stayed April 2021

Stunning property with top of the line fixtures and fittings. Like staying at a luxury boutique hotel!

Stayed February 2021

A wonderful centrally located property with super views. It was an easy walk into town or along the lake front. Ideal for a group of friends or couples as each bedroom has its own bathroom. Would definitely rent this property again.

Stayed December 2020

The location of the unit is excellent within close distance to town and providing interesting views over the river and park beyond. The unit is quiet and a great layout for groups of couples if you don't mind walking the stairs - 3 levels with a bedroom / ensuite on each level. A tight 2 car garage provides good parking and storage and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a nice patio and outdoor furniture at ground level by the river but it's a shame it is 3 flights up to the kitchen to fetch refreshments. Only a very small balcony at the living level. All the bedrooms are good size and modern bathrooms with great showers (BYO toiletries). The house would be snug in winter with heaters, HTRs, and underfloor heating in bathrooms but is hot in summer with no aircon or ranchsliders and windows can't be opened far. The blinds in bedrooms let a lot of light in so would suit early risers. We didn't go to the pool

Stayed December 2020

Very small deck for sitting outside. Our expectations otherwise were met, great view very close to town 5 minute walk. We swam in the Waikato river below and in the pool.

Stayed October 2020

Absolutely stunning villa in an amazing location! Pool was great for the kids and the hosts were friendly, accomodating and so helpful. Will definitely be back! Thank you

Stayed June 2020

Stunning property, in a great location (less than 10 minute work into town centre) and with super comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Taupo.

Stayed January 2020

Everything was perfect. We had everything we could possibly need and the place was spotless!

Stayed January 2020

Amazing place convenient to all amenities would highly recommend

Stayed December 2019

Beautiful home with quality fittings, linen and towels. Lovely views, and walking distance to town centre or around to the marina and lake front. Plenty of room in the house for everyone to spread out and have their own space.

Stayed November 2019

The property we rented from Bachcare was wonderful! Checking in was quite simple and easy. The place we rented far exceeded our expectations and I would recommend renting from Bachcare any time. The people are friendly and respond quickly. Thank you Bachcare for making our holiday that much better!
