Reviewed 10 January 2017 via mobile

We stay last night. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The room and views are stunning. Clean, and tidy. The bath spa was an added bonus just what was needed after a week in a campervan! Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Our family of four enjoyed the quiet, clean and comfortable room with all the luxuries of home. Staff was very friendly and helpful recommending sights and restaurants in the area. My favorite part was you crossed the street and your toes were digging in the sand. Location was perfect within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Would highly reccomend Sails on the Beach when visiting Lake Taupo.

Thank you #Lea F, Jason and I are stoked you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sails, having the swimming beach right across the road from us is wonderful, there is nothing like digging your toes in the sand and having a nice refreshing dip in the lake.

A friendly and helpful receptionist greeted us on arrival. She couldn't have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome. A lovely room with a beautiful view overlooking Lake Taupo. Everything was very clean with attention to detail. We look forward to a return visit.

It was a nice stay, we got one of the ground floor rooms because this time of year it's fairly full, It served its purpose and had a comfy bed. Good stay for what we wanted, very good curtains aswell.

Super clean place in a great location by the lake. Proper coffee and milk provided, with a kitchenette which was really useful. Very friendly and helpful owners and a beautiful view. I could not have asked for more.
