House is great, beautiful place and location. Love the use of Kayaks. Wasn’t thrilled with the cleaning requests including mopping the floors pre departure when we paid a cleaning fee.

Great bach close to all activities

Stayed January 2020

Excellent location, so close to the lake and central to Taupo, the bike trails and the mountains. The house has everything we wanted, fantastic spaces and well appointed.

Taruna Tauranga Taupo Holiday home. I and family had an excellent stay. I could rave on. But you would have to experience for yourself. 5 stars all around.

Stayed December 2019

Wonderful weekend away with extended family of 7. Location was close to boat ramp, where we had fun with the kids biscuiting and caught loads of trout in the early mornings. Look forward to bring further family to experience this ideally located bach.

Stayed July 2019

Beautifully presented home with lovely touches like hot water bottles. Great space for 2 families, especially ideal with 2 separate toilets and infinity gas hot water. Excellent proximity to the lake with a great little bush walk only 50m from the front door. Super comfortable mattresses. Can't wait to visit again in the summer time to take advantage of the deck and lake.

Stayed July 2019

This is the third time we have stayed at this property. We love it's location and the fact that many of us can stay but there is still plenty of room for everyone. It is a great property both Summer and Winter!

Stayed May 2019

We found this to be a beautiful home away from home. The decor was absolutely beautiful. There were activities/games and videos etc for the evenings. The kitchen was really good including standard appliances + dishwasher and all the crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment that you could possibly hope for at a holiday home. Best bedding fit would be for two couples and four children as the 4 bunks are best suited for children but we did have two shorter adults using two of the bunk beds.

Stayed March 2019

Well equipped bach in a great location. A fantastic base for our two families for a weekend away. We’re already discussing the next visit!

Stayed February 2019

This is a superb bach - but Bachcare have let the owner down here which is a shame - someone else's rubbish left in the kitchen bin. TV didn't work, tinfoil under the stove elements was very dirty. No key left for use of outdoor furniture and BBq. Bathroom sink was blocked.

Bachcare replied

Hi Donna, we're very sorry your experience with Bachcare was not up to our usual high standards. We have passed your feedback on to our team and will ensure this does not happen for future guests. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know, and hope you will give us a chance to make this up to you in future.

Stayed November 2018

It was very clean, good location and great value for money

Stayed October 2018

This home was absolutely stunning and went beyond expectations. Next time we will take the kayaks out for a spin as the children really wanted too but we were unable to this time around. This home was close to Turangi and Taupo and it fit in well with what we were doing during this stay. Thank you.
