“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Great flat was in a quiet area close to the town and the lake (walking about 10 minutes). There is lots to do around Taupo and fab restaurants. The flat itself was comfy and had all the amenities you needed. Heather and Louise were really friendly but also respected our privacy. I would highly recommend this place.

“Lovely and relaxed”
Reviewed 5 February 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Fabulous place to stay. We were on holiday, it was relaxed, informal, clean, comfortable and everything worked! Would suit someone going to Taupo for business or pleasure. Close to the city (you can walk in, we did several times). You can cook for yourself as all the facilities are there or grab a meal from a restaurant or take away in town. There is on site, off road parking. The garden may be small but we found it a quiet place to stay. Would we go back? Most definitely.

“A convenient home away from home.”
Reviewed 22 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

To be honest, I had my reservations about booking this rental property e.g. lack of reviews, booking directly through TripAdvisor and the need to pay a deposit. I wasn't too keen on the idea of the owners being just upstairs either.
Fortunately though, all my fears proved unfounded. Heather and Lou (the owners) were fantastic hosts, and far from being intrusive, felt more like friendly next-door neighbours during our stay.
Excellent communication from the hosts, from the time of booking until after our stay. Loved the house-manual and hosts were able to recommended local eateries and day trips. (In a genuinely helpful, not pushy way).
Handy quiet location, within walking distance of the lake, shops, restaurants ect.
The Studio is equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay.The fast, reliable WiFi ,parking space and washing-machine...were great, but it was the little details like the free cereal, welcome carton of milk in the fridge and cafetiere that made us feel home.
We would be more than happy to stay at Studio, if we visit Lake Taupo again.

“Best Taupo stay we’ve ever had!”
Reviewed 10 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This is a comfortable, clean and welcoming place. We loved our time and the hosts were so very accommodating. The shower and bathroom were immaculate. The kitchen had everything we needed for tea/coffee and the bed was comfortable- even had an electric blanket for the winter.

We would highly recommend! great location and the host is a tour guide so can give you top tips of the best places to eat, relax and sight see.

“Travels in Taupo”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Heather and Louise were the ideal hosts. They gave us several insider recommendations on things to do and places to eat while staying in their studio. We were thrilled to learn that Louise is a massage therapist and booked sessions with her to relax after completing the Tongariro-Alpine Crossing hike. The studio is well equipped and conveniently located near town.

“Quaint place, Hreat Hosts”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Lou & Heather were very accommodating,friendly and helpful. Their place is very quaint and within walking distance of the town and the beach. It is a short drive to Huka Falls and an awesome jet boating experience. We will visit again.
