After 6 stays here, we I felt it was time to sum up this property. It is an older Lockwood with a lovely sense of space and homeliness. It's position is 2nd to none with just the lawn and the "Lions Walk" to the lake front. No traffic, quiet neighbours, outdoor seating, great spa, spectacular views from all living areas.

The hosts are wonderful people, very friendly and accommodating. We recommend this to anyone and will continue to stay and enjoy.

communication was not good from the start. house is tired snd outdated. one set of cleaners were there when we arrived. they were rushing hence why we had to clean bbq down from last tenants ourselves more cleaners turned up after the first lot left. not well organised. make sure u take note of any issues when you first arrive and photos or you may be blamed for things that were already there. basics of cleaning done but other areas needed attention. lots of cobwebs etc. dangetous timber decking poking out that stubbed a few toes .expected more :(

Firstly it is quite clear that the property is listed as being holiday houses, not a camping ground!!
The grounds including the lawns are often used for wedding photos and special events. Hence the fact it is clearly written in the terms and conditions at the houses, no parking on the lawn (except in the designated area). The tenants parked their boat and cars on the lawn along with pitching their tents.
The linen is $60.00 each house and the houses sleep 10 people, 14 towels were given for their stay, some of the towels were so badly stained they had to be disregarded. Both queen size beds were urinated in so badly that the wool rest and electric blanket had to be thrown out.
The fridges in both houses are in perfect working order. The tenants that stayed before these people and the tenants that are staying now for two weeks, have not had any problems at all with the fridges.
We are extremely disappointed with how the houses were left after their stay and in all the 14 years of renting the houses we have never kept anyone’s bond until now!!

Terrible communication. No terms and conditions at time of booking then when we got there there were so many rules that should've been communicated in the beginning. Dirty BBQ and car port, spent good holiday time cleaning this and main house kitchen. Cob webs and dead bugs everywhere. Smoke alarms weren't active. Property is tired looking inside and back porch steps are hazardous. Fridges didn't work properly. Then they came up with all these excuses not to give bond back. Was such a horrible experience to have happen on our family holiday.

Where do I start.....Firstly the houses are located just 20 metres from the shores of Lake Taupo and are surrounded by a large and lovely garden. While the accommodation is not new, everything is in excellent working order and everything was clean and tidy. All the linen had been professionally cleaned and the sheets where ironed (don't get that at home!) ample towels, tea towels and table cloths had also been provided. We had a wonderful time and would recommend the property to everyone. It is an excellent place to take the family for a Christmas holiday.

Where do I start! Firstly there was no clear communication at time of booking as to any terms and conditions. So when we arrived there were so many rules and signs on sliding doors saying the neighbours are watching. The place was filthy, there were cob webs through our house, filthy car port and BBQ, dirty spa pool and smell of sewage near spa area. There wasn't enough linen for our total stayed even though we paid extra for it. The house was not cleaned properly. Fridge didn't work in both houses we had to chuck a lot of food out. The house is very tired and looks like there's been no up keep on it for a while. Smoke alarms not secure or active in kitchen area. Then to top things off the owners decided to take bond even though it was not valid to do so. As a travel agent with over a decade in the industry I would have to say this was the worst property I've ever had dealings with and the property itself is not up to standard.

Thank you for your comment, the spa requires a manual boost if you are wanting the temperature to be hotter as directed in the terms and conditions book at the houses.

We are 2 family groups who stayed here between Christmas and New Year. We found the property exceeded our expectations in many ways. The location is superb with amazing views of the lake and Taupo town. So close to the boat ramp for fishing and watersports. We also took some beautiful photos by the lake. The house is furnished well, the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms and kitchens have absolutely everything you could need. We had a thoroughly relaxing time and hope to go back again soon.
