In auckland the faulty tower experience costs $75 per person with no bed to sleep on afterwards. just a three course meal. and any activity in taupo alone is over $50 for 2 minutes of fun. If you have a good sense of humour- this is the place to book in to enjoy the brighter side of life! great service- he even allowed us to leave our BMW outside the office while we rented a car to go around lake waikaremoana for a few days, came back and all four wheels were still attached. Great people. these hosts go out of their way to help us, they a family that has to work hard to try and satisfy everybody and judging by the attitude of the rest of you on here who obviously dont know how to enjoy life- must be a very challenging job for the owners but they manage it, and do a great job for the price to accomodate the whole family. Think his name was Okie as i read above- there must be many positive people that just havent written about your great hospitiality- we hope you get many more positive people coming to stay. The way you treated us over the last few years have been a great experience and we'll be back in the new year.
