We got welcomed amazingly friendly. Tony loves what he does and try’s his best to comfort you. The bed is amazing comfortable with a heat blanket underneath... bathroom are sparkling clean. Breakfast is big and something there for everyone.... I was very happy specially with the comfort of the bed. And his Mom is very cute!!!!!

I have booked through a famous booking service. When we arrived at Tony's place, who has been very welcoming, we did not find the place to our taste. There was jusyt one toilet for four rooms, One A/C in the corridor, with the suggestion to leave the room door open in order to get some cool air. Therefore, we paid the whole amount and left to spend the night at another place. It's not correct to leave a complete review, since we did not spend the night. The "funny" thing is that the review written for the booking site was judged "not abiding the site rules". I was invited to amend it, but it has disappeared and there's no way to write a new one.
Coming back to Tony's place,all the families staying there were looking quite happy.

Easy to find. Very cheap. a shared bathroom but no problem as all nearby. Pleasant walk to the nearby lake and well worth a walk along the pathway at the lake edge. Add to the pumice pile on the beach. Good parking, modern and clean room, better than promised breakfast, family atmosphere, free advice. What more could anyone want!

Tony - the best host. He will welcome you with open heart as his own family members. He goes out of way to make you comfortable in all respect. The lodge is located on the high way not far from Toupo Lake (about 10 minutes drive). The beach area is behind the lodge - a few minutes walk. The rooms are cozy, kitchen is fully equipped and clean and most importantly the breakfast is served by Tony himself as per your requirement. The outside sitting area in the open is fantastic. We stayed just for one night and we will definitely return.

Room tip: We three adults shared a room and it was comfortable.
