We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed it. Great location just out of town and on the lakefront. The wind picked up in the evening but with a few layers on we managed to have a picnic at the water. The next day we hired bikes from Terry (a bargain at $10 each) and had a great day riding around... More

We have stayed here twice now 2 years ago and most recently in September as part of our honeymoon road trip. Beautiful clean rooms with huge spa baths. Hosts Julie and Terry are awesome. This is definitely our place to stay in Taupo.

We loved our stay in the beautiful two-storey cottage (thanks for the upgrade, guys!). The bed was really comfortable and we loved the spa bath. Everything was wonderfully clean and fresh, and Julie and Terry were very helpful. I appreciated the complimentary use of the washing machine (you just need to pay for the drier). I would highly recommend Julie... More

We had a great one night stay here. Very comfortable accomodation in a lovely setting. Beaut walk down to the lakefront. Handy to town cente. Hosts were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. Sorted out a small issue for us - not their fault - super quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely stay here. The unit was great. The beds were also very comfortable and the rooms were really warm. They have everything that we required. Thoroughly enjoyed it and great location. Also great for the kids - they enjoyed their stay.

What a fantastic place to stay with a family. It met our needs perfectly and the hosts were friendly and accomodating. We would recommend this place wholeheartedly. The rooms were neat and tidy and the spa bath a complete bonus.

Very clean and comfortable, helpful people. Would happily stay there again. The only slight issue was the bunk frame was a little too flexible for my son and the master bed tended to the middle. However, I understand the owners intended to address that.

Julie and her husband were super helpful to us, full of info about the area. Since we visited during a slow time, we were offered an upgraded room, which was fantastic (yay for an actual kitchen). Sadly, we were in Taupo during spring so the weather wasn't conducive to outdoor pursuits (rainy, windy, cold). That meant most of our plans... More

Close to town and even closer to the lake, Cottage Mews provides a warm, friendly and charming base from which to explore the area. The dated chic of the spa bath (with complimentary lavendar bubble bath) was popular with both adults and kids and helped to soothe weary muscles after an active day out. Great facility. I've been back once... More

The owner is a very nice lady. She helped us a lot (eg. double confirm our activities in Taupo) The price was good. The room was very clean and tidy. We just felt like home. 1min away to the beautiful Lake. It is very close to town. AWESOME!!!!!

So glad you had a great time in Taupo V and Y. I really enjoyed meeting you, and you made the most of every minute. Did you bungy jump before catching the bus? Thanks very much for your review - hope that we see you again sometime, when you take a break from your studies. All the best for the... More
