Did not know what to expect, but it was a wonderful delight. Will not even go into the level of accommodation, it was just perfect. Nothing could be faulted, but a lot could be praised. The landlady and her husband was so friendly and warm, suggesting places where we could go and was always just helpful and friendly. The place itself was immaculately clean with cheery flowers in the hanging baskets. That, and the smell of lavender added to the cottagee feeling. The unit was very comfortable and contained everything someone could ask for on holiday. The lake close by was an absolute bonus. The whole atmosphere was just special. We went kayaking and cycling, all the gear supplied by the owners. Watching the sunset every night from the upstairs balcony was just so relaxing and romantic, followed by a long soak in the spa bath. And it was so awesome to be able to have had access to a clean, well equipped laundry room any time we liked, for free!!! Everything was just so convenient and comfortable. It was also nice just to relax in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere, no loud music or people being loud, not even on New Years Eve. We watched the fireworks from our balcony and celebrated the beginning of the new year quietly with champagne. We actually felt quite close to nature there, although Taupo town was brimming with people on holiday. We were really so sad to leave at the end of our holiday, but will definitely be back again soon, this time for longer. Thank you so much for adding to making our holiday so enjoyable. PS... Lily is the most adorable cat ever, we could not wait for her to come and greet us in the morning!!!! Little Munchkin, mwa
