Loved our stay, 4 nights with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. A great location to enjoy the lake. Very peaceful and quiet. Marilyn and Laurie were very hospitable and friendly. Thank you.

We just stayed here and found it lovely. The place was clean, had beautiful decor, modern amenities and the location was amazing. We found it to be a great base from which to explore the Tongariro National Park as well as Taupo and Rotorua. The owners were also great and really accommodating. We would definitely recommend this place and come back :)
great "granny flat" located in between taupo and turangi. quiet, tidy, clean and airy place located underneath the main house (completely separated - full privacy). the 2 bedrooms, dining room and living room are spacious and well equipped (no wifi). owner is very friendly and flexible. great place for its price. towels, linens, duvet and covers are actually provided. the linens for the single beds seems a bit old though compare to the duvet covers. A++++ !!!!
