    A super place to stay! The owners are the loveliest people in the world! We had a 6 person chalet and it suited our needs perfectly. Roomy and comfortable with a great spot by the lake. Definitely recommend staying here.

    Friendly service, clean and simple rooms with lots of natural light. What more could you ask for? Close to everything but far enough away for piece and quiet. Bed is comfortable and heater works fine. Recommend.

    Stayed here one night. Location very near to Lake Taupo (photo 1). Easy access to town & restaurants. Ate at the Vine, lovely food & live music on Wednesday. The owners were helpful highlighting nearby attractions, the Huka Falls were good (photo 2).
