    I stayed in the double-stories one bedroom. It's very clean and well facilitated with friendly owners. Amazing view of the lake from the upstairs living room. Will recommend to anyone. Good place for good value.

    Thank you for your great recommendation. The lake end apartments are a comfortable place to chill out, especially if the weather is not so great.

    Owner upon arrival was extremely friendly and welcoming. Showed us to our gorgeous little cottage. Heaps of space with the bedroom downstairs with spa bath and seperate toilet, bathroom and shower. Upstairs was a decent sized lounge, dining and kitchenette. Great Lake views from upstairs...More

    Right on the beach with easy access for beach walks. Clean, comfortable, spacious room. Friendly owners who offer suggestions on things to see and do. Offer free use of kayaks and bikes. Easy to locate and easy to get into town.

    Great location. Beautifully maintained. Very pleasant walk along the lake into Taopo town. Always something going on on the lake. Plenty of places to eat and a good supermarket in the town. Plenty to see within easy driving distance.
