We stayed in apartment 3 with our 4 kids and baby. It was perfect! Great location, close to town and Countdown for own supplies and also right on the water front to enjoy the thermal beach. Amazing. The apartment was spacious with pretty views, it is warm and has good facilities. The thermal heated swimming pool was ideal, although being... More

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

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!
