This is really nice property. Super clean and spacious room. They have kitchen with stove top and microwave which is real plus. Good heated swimming pool and hot tub with excellent sunset view over Taupo lake. They do not have onsite restaurant. You can get food delivered to your room form any restaurants in Taupo.

Nothing was too much trouble for erin and amos : 10/10 for customer service. Their enthusiasm and depth of local knowledge is just what tourists/non-locals want ! Breakfast, if you order it, gives excellent options and is beautifully presented.
