The property was great, suited our needs with lots of space and beds. Nice big yard, deck BBQ area etc. We only had 8 of us in the end but is a really good setup for a larger group.

A well equipped house for our large group of people.

A well equipped house for our large group of people. The house was really warm and cosy. Loads of space outside for the children to run around and play. Not far to travel into Taupo and only 13 minutes to the fish n chip shop in Reporoa. A fun weekend was had by all!
