Renee and Liz along with their staff made our stay at Sacred Waters fantastic. Nothing was a problem in the top notch service they provided. They were incredibaly accomodating in all their interactions and apartment was prefect for our needs. The family apartment offers easy access to the swimming pool for the kids and a courtyard for relaxing and for the kids ot run around. There is a hot tub but our kids were too busy in the swimming pool to use the tub. Thank you Liz and Renee...we will be back!!

The warm welcome from Liz and Renee on checking in set the scene for a great 2 night stay. The apartment was contemporary, spacious, light and well equipped for the needs of a young family. The girls (6) could stand on the bottom at the shallow end of the pool - meant I could relax! The apartments are well positioned, all tourist attractions are a short drive away. We had a lake view apartment - magical sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down with a glass of wine. We will be back.

Room Tip: Apartment 15 had a superb view of the lake and no traffic noise.

On Trip Advisor recommendation we booked a three night stay. It the comments box I said we were over from the UK celebrating a milestone Birthday. We were given a free upgrade to a three bed appartment . So kind. Hot tub on first floor lakefront veranda was a dream! High quality rental, well appointed kitchen. Great lap pool . Want to return now!

Room Tip: Lake views worth the extra.

Stayed here early January (6 and 7) and was extremely impressed. Renee and Liz were very good hosts as were helpful and knowledgeable and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to 3 bedroom Lakefront room. Kids loved pool area and we all had a good time in Taupo with plenty to see and do. We even walked into township, which took about 40 minutes to get there but easy walk and what a view over that wonderful lake on a clear day! Would I stay again? Absolutely but longer next time.

Stayed at Sacred Waters as part of a multi stop North Island holiday but I could easily have settled in for a week. These apartments are so new, super clean and very comfortable. Renee was really helpful with suggesting a restaurant and also with local attractions. The free WiFi was also really appreciated by our kids.

Beautiful apartments and highly recommended although a little way out of town so you would need a car. And the driveway to the car park is scary!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a lakeside room and if you don't have kids, avoid the rooms beside the pool.

We booked for two but after seeing the property instantly booked a third night. This is a truly special place to stay with a location that cannot be beat. Cannot recommend it enough for people staying in taupo. We stayed in a three bedroom waterfront room and the view was insane. The ladies who manage the property we're kind attentive and gave the place real soul. They knew all the best local eats and activities and helped us out however they could. Avoid rotorua, stay here instead. Don't forget to have a soak in the mineral waters.

Room Tip: Anything with a view. Must have a view.

Just come back. Gorgeous views and great location, good sized apartment. Sorry housekeeping standard is very poor for a 5 star!!!. Had to wash oil out of roasting tray, dirty wine glasses. Broken handle on pot lid, carpets stained, toilet seat wasn't even attached. Shower flooded the bathroom floor. Shower mixer very complicated to use- no instructions. DVD instructions were incorrect. Staff hardly speak to you. Bugs on window sills, dust on table. Black dust ontop of all pictures and tv- vent in bathroom filthy. Don't expect 5 stars. More like 3 stars.Looking very tired with paint chipped, sofa faded etc. It's not terrible- but not a 5 star.

Room Tip: Lake front apartment really does have a gorgeous view. Chose downstairs if you want to walk straight...
