We are so pleased that we’ve chosen this place to stay! Every single thing was perfect! The property is very clean and beautiful, the location is great, close to the centre & the lake, yet not too close, so you can have a quiet and peaceful time. Breakfast is very delicious :) Special thanks to our hosts, Ken and Marie, they are very friendly & welcoming. It was our first trip to Taupo, and their recommendations of places to go & to eat were so helpful. Overall, the best accommodation we’ve ever stayed at! Highly recommended.
