Guest reviews for Family at Wharewaka

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed July 2021

We had a group of 8 friends from New Zealand and Australia, and our stay was great! The house was incredibly spacious and located on a decent sized lot just 10 minutes out of town! Lots of room to socialize both upstairs and downstairs! Our stay was in the winter, so we didn’t get to enjoy much of the outside space, but did get to have a sunny breakfast on the deck. No complaints from us!

Stayed October 2020

Great stay once again...suits our group of friends who meet up once a year, lots of room for everyone. Thanks again

Stayed July 2020

Very good and as advertised

Stayed January 2020

Great basic house, clean and tidy and had everything that was needed. We had two families of four staying and the kids loved the kids room downstairs. Close walk to the lake. Nice quiet location. Could do with a gate to close the property in (we have a three year old who loves to try and escape). The lawns aren’t as big as they look in photos. Overall happy with our stay

Stayed January 2020

The house was lovely and clean and just what we needed for our family holiday in a lovely quiet location that's not too far from town. The room downstairs was a perfect space for the kids and they loved the foosball.

Stayed October 2019

Another stay at this bach, lovely time meeting friends. Appreciated the house being ready lamps on and warm when we arrived. Nice big place to spread out, thanks again

Stayed August 2019

We had a great stay in Wharewaka Family Bach. It’s a 5 minute drive to the Taupo shops so nice and close by (but you’ll need a car). SO much space and the house we really tidy. Extra bonus with heat pumps upstairs and down. We stayed in August/September when it was still a bit cold but looked like it was all set up for an awesome Summer stay.
