We enjoyed our stay, nice clean and tidy bach! Lots of space for children to run around and nice backing on to the reserve 😊

Stayed March 2022

No Wifi, payed a cleaning fee only to be instructed we would need to carry that out down to cleaning skirting board's and polishing mirror's. We also had to take all rubbish from the property. Will never stay with Bachcare again. Location was ok given walking distance to lake

Bachcare replied

A delightful and very private little holiday home just a few minutes walk from Lake Taupo. We loved our stay here with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, great shower, wood burner, roomy kitchen/dining/lounge. Washing machine. Plenty of parking for car/boat. Would highly recommend

Lovely location, close to Lake Taupo and town. Private and surrounded by trees with a park at the back boundary. House renovations very good esp the bathroom which was excellent. Comfortable bed. Small dogs allowed which was essential for us. Had everything we wanted for a very peaceful, restful and comfortable stay.

Fabulous little house in a super location

Stayed October 2019

A cute little place for 4, good value for money. Convenient location and quiet.

Stayed August 2019

A great place for our family weekend. Very warm & cosy, with the fireplace, even though the middle of winter. Handy to town. Private.

Stayed July 2019

Nice and tidy little place. Fireplace is good in winter. Agree with comment that the sofa bed is not ideal for 2 people, but would otherwise gladly stay here again.

Stayed March 2019

Great place. Quiet and nice home if taking your dog. Reserve below house to exercise animals. Tidy and close to lake frontage.

Stayed January 2019

The house is great for 4 guests, we had maximum of 6 and the fold out couch was a roll together non sleeper, which was not at all comfortable. A few breakfast essential condiments would have great. Nice little house, cleaner now than when we got there. Walk down to the Two mile Boat Bar, best day into night bar when they have live bands. Cheers DJ.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your feedback for Matuku St Hideaway, DJ. We haven't had feedback about the fold out couch previously and the owners are really happy to provide a mattress topper to make it more comfortable for future guests. We apologise that the cleaning was not up to our usual Bachcare standards and we have passed your feedback on to the Holiday Manager in charge of this property who has ensured this is rectified. We hope to see you again!

Stayed December 2018

A delightful property to stay in, spacious and easy to relax in plus the new bathroom was beautiful. We will definitely want to stay there again.

Stayed September 2018

Neat little spot. Cosy and warm with the fire place and the all day sun in the lounge/kitchen. Very convenient location too.
