  • The apartment is big with a nice view on the lake, like pictures. It is situated 5mn driving to Taupo center. Vicky gave us all informations at our arrival. The wifi don't work in the apartment but Vicky let us have access to her office to be connected. It is a good place to have a step in Taupo during summer.
