What an absolutely lovely place for a relaxing time in Taupo. The hosts were extremely lovely to deal with and very welcoming. The cottage was clean and warm and the bed very comfy. Will definitely stay there again.

Lovely accommodation - good facilities. Unable to use the spa
Owner's reply
The spa was not advertised as being available and the guests were shown this. Never the less a 10% discount was given for their mistake and they still give a 3 out of 5. Wow!!

My partner and I stayed at the cottage for 5 days. The cottage is fantastic and great value for money. Trevor and Gail are so welcoming and friendly. We had a look around in Taupo and this has to be one of the best cottages around. It has everything you could possibly need for a self contained cottage plus more. The river is only a short stroll behind the cottage and it is absolutely breathtaking. Thank you so much Gail and Trevor and next time I come to New Zealand I will definately be coming back.

Cute cottage and great for a couple - might be a bit cramped with kids. Microwave oven but no stove top although there is a bbq at the front. Excellent value and quiet location.
Owner's reply
The Microwave is also a Thermowave oven and the cottage also now has a hot plate and toast n grill oven. There is also a Breville Fast Slow cooker available on request.
