Stunning and warm house with beautiful views of the lake and mount ruapehu.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning and warm house with beautiful views of the lake and mount ruapehu. We particularly loved the spa bath which pumped silky mineral hot water from underground. House has some lovely touches for a comfortable stay including games, books and sky tv. Very close to a 40 minute walkway along the lakefront into town. We didn't want to leave and plan to return again next year.

The house is very central and close to everything in Taupo.

The house is well equipped. It has a lovely feel to it. A really stunning property.

The spa was a highlight for the kids and with how cold it was in Taupo, the house is lovely and warm with the heating they have. We would love to stay again soon. Thanks

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated, warm, clean and cosy house. Stunning views and lovely outdoor areas for the kids to run around and roam. The hot pool was a welcome luxury after a day on the mountain - really relaxing. The house is very user friendly. Excellent instructions on the house, hot pool, kitchen eWe have three kids (18 mths, 3 and 6). We put anything breakable up high and covered the couches with throws. Family or couple, this house is wonderful.

A fabulous home with spectacular views of the lake.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous home with spectacular views of the lake. The house was warm and cosy thanks to great heating. The hot water pool is as added bonus - a real treat in winter. The parking is quite tight for a larger vehicle but with patience it is manageable! A lot of thought has gone into ensuring visitor comfort and these small touches really add to the relaxed atmosphere. Heather (the owner) was lovely to deal with and the house was beautifully clean on our arrival. Would highly recommend.?

Very narrow parking.

Very narrow parking. Was very hard to park our cars and the house needs better heating options in master bedroom and in the lounge.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Yes the carport is quite tight, but manageable if you take your time. For very large cars, you have the choice of parking in the courtyard where there is plenty of space for two cars right beside the front door. We have not had a problem or complaint about the heating in the house. The Rinnai gas heater is large with a big output, also there is an oil heater in the TV room. It does make a considerable difference if you shut the bedroom and bathroom doors.

The place was lovely and modern with great views over the lake and mountains and the plunge pool was a bonus. The only thing that was disappointed was it was listed with having a fireplace which it did, but there was no access to firewood and would have been the icing on the cake to have a roaring fire as well.
