WOW - magnificent 180 degree views of Lake Taupo, fabulous furnishings, warm and cosy! Elle was so accommodating and full of valuable information that made the visit most enjoyable. Highly recommend if you want to get away and relax...oh and the heated pool/spa pool, wow again, just the right temperature in both. Such a fantastic stay.

We stayed their with our three school aged children. The spacious apartment had direct access to the pool and spa pool which made it a very relaxing stay for all. It is located on the waterfront that is known as hot water beach due to thermal activity. The pool is heated from this water source so remains warm in the... More

Perfect place to stay in Taupo! Elle and Denise were very accommodating and went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect. The apartment was very tidy, central and has amazing views. There were no negatives to our stay!!! We can't wait to return

Elle was very informative about which apartment would suit us and couldn't have been more helpful with all my questions and went out of her way to attend to all our needs, thank you so much Elle for your excellent service and providing us with the extra car park....

Only stayed for one night which was such a waste to appreciate a wonderful apartment. The website had been rather confusing as the apartments are individually owned, but after contacting the managing agent everything was explained and the booking process straightforward. I had wanted a different apartment but was assured that apartment 8 was excellent, as it was. On arrival,... More

What a lovely apartment and location. We had a perfect experience during the Ironman week. Elle was very easy to communicate with and book via email. We slightly changed dates - no problem. The location is brilliant. It was right on "Hot Beach" where the thermal springs are and just a couple of km's along the lake side into town.... More

We stayed in two apartments for the weekend and they were not only adequate for our group of 11, but they were very clean, and the view/ facilities were brilliant. 5/5. We will be coming back for sure!

We stayed in apartment 4 the week of ironman New Zealand and it was the most wonderful place to base ourselves. The apartment is huge and beautifully furnished, with a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and the lake. No bikes were allowed inside but there was a suitable secure area for storing them.
