Pipi Villa is a wonderful place to stay! Perfect for a family. Loved that we could open up the doors to the deck and watch the children play outside knowing they're safe, as the side gate has a latch that is only high enough for adults to reach. There was even bubble bath which kept my three year old entertained in the bath! Great selection of kids books and adults books and magazines! We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately not surprising they were booked out. There is ample fire wood and the wood burner is marvellous. Cleanliness is superb. Beds are so comfy and the children so excited about the bunk beds. Thanks Mike :-)

Good location in quiet neighborhood. Nice walk down to the lake. Easy short drive to town. Really lovely home - so you can quite happily chillax at the house or go for a wander thru Taupo. There was 5 of us and one toddler and we had plenty of us all.
