“Spacious house, great for holiday with extended family.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Travelled with extended family, including toddler and school-aged children.
Excellent communication from property manager leading up to our stay.
Stunning views of Wakatipu and Remarkables!
Driveway was a little tricky to navigate due to sharpness of turn but ok once you know! Nothing to be done about that and many driveways on the lake side of Franton Rd are the same.
Arrived to a well-stocked fireplace which generously saw us through our stay.
Heating in the house was excellent, especially the under floor heating.
The two living areas were spacious with the kitchens well fit-out. Nice surprise was to find a few staples in the pantry upon arrival.
Beds fitted-out with electric blankets and were very cosy after a big day on the slopes.
Bathrooms have heated floors and towel racks, except for stand-alone toilet near garage which was quite chilly to use.
There was plenty of living space for our two families of 2+1 and 2+3.
Only negatives were that it is a bit of a hike to the private jetty, it is not fully paved and it is muddy after wet weather. Also the CD player in the upstairs living area would not work. Minor issues when compared to everything else the property offered.
About a 15 minute stroll into town which is pleasant but for the traffic on Frankton Rd which is quite busy.
For those travelling with young ones, please note there is an internal carpeted stair case and no fence for the fireplace. Our 1 year old wax fine but any littler would have been an issue.
We would happily stay here again. Tahuna House is a lovely holiday home and was very easy to live in.

“Great house and facilities, awesome views, simply the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had such an awesome time at the Tahuna house. We had a large group composed of 3 families with children. We arrived at night time and were instantly amazed by the house and its facilities, as well as the small touches that were added, like the fire place being fully ready to start (all we had to do was light the match!). When we got over our excitement for how great the house was, we went to sleep and woke up to jaw dropping views! The photos actually don't do it justice. The house is the perfect package. We enjoyed great weather during our stay, but even if the weather was bad, we wouldn't have minded staying in the house the whole time! Thank you Penny for being easy to deal with, and for providing us with such an enjoyable stay!
