Rachelle made us feel welcome from start to finish. We didn't actually see her on our first night as we were running late. Rachelle was fine with this and the apartment was ready and heated for us with a lovely note outside to greet us. The apartment itself was perfect with everything we needed.

We had a good stay in the place though at first we have trouble finding the place as we checked in quite late. The host did leave a note at the door to welcome us but pity we did not see Rachelle the next morning as we checked out pretty early. The place is comfortable and free to walk around to see the kunis pig but I would hope to meet the host next time just to know the place better.

A lovely little unit in a peacefull setting. Rachelle was a great host everthing we needed was provided, great communication when booking and before arrival - she even turned the heater on wgen we were late arriving so the place would be warm. Evrything was spotlessly clean, with tasteful decor. Nothing to improve!

This place is great - cosy, a useful little kitchenette and plenty of thoughtful things to keep you warm - electric blanket, bathrobes, tea, etc. would stay again/recommend.

Rachelle was a very welcoming, friendly host, quick to respond, and even had Easter eggs ready for us on arrival. There were lots of friendly animals there too, including Bluie the lovely Kelpie dog, the kune kune pigs and ponies. The apartment was very cosy, well-furnished and clean, and in a very nice area away from the traffic and noise. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others!

Place was nice and well appointed, quick drive down into Taupo proper. Rachelle was easy to deal with and the animals were lovely.
