Stayed January 2022

Fantastic location and a place to really relax and unwind. Just far enough out of town to get the peace and quite, but close enough if you needed anything. Very comfortable and enjoyable

Stayed September 2021

This is a clean functional property in a great location, a true lakeside location and not too far out of Taupo with its amenities.

Stayed June 2021

Cute Bach to stay in. Amazing view of the lake and you are right at the lake edge with access. Great heating for a winter stay too.

Great time at the Lake, prompt and helpful communication from the manager. House was really well set up, no complaints from 3 generations :) Thanks!

Stayed October 2020

Terrible experience. We had to leave the property early and I had a very difficult time to request s refund. The property manager was also useless and failed to respond to my follow ups. I will never use this service again!

Stayed October 2020

Terrible neighbours, terrible property manager, avoid at all cost.

Great location especially for the fisherman. Nice warm house with everything you need.

Lovely warm home. Great views. Double glazing cut out the road noise. Fishing on the doorstep was a huge benefit.
