Great place to stay - loved how accommodating for our dog it was!

Alex's place suited us fine, and we enjoyed the super large and comfy bed. However the WiFi was poor and didn't work for us at all in the bedroom. Driveway was tight and may not suit a larger vehicle.

Response from Alex:
I'm sorry there was an issue with the wifi, no ones every had a problem with it before, and it's working fine now. I would have tried to resolve it had I been told about it at the time. unfortunately there's nothing I can do about the drive, many of my guests do have large vehicles (one even had a bus) all without an issue.

The apartment was of a high standard and the location superb. A couple of miles out of town in a beautiful quiet lakeside location. We would highly recommend and would definitely use again.

Very cozy apartment, nice garden and outside area with lake view. Short walk to a small beach down the street. Easy communication with host Alex, she accommodated us on short notice. We do not have a dog, but the apartment seemed very dog friendly with dog facilities and a lot of info around good dog walking places. Can definitely recommend this place.

This a a great wee place. Lovely big bedrooms, plenty of common space as well. Small but well equipped kitchen. Lovely host. So great to see pet friendly accommodation (even if I didn't have a dog with me this trip!). Highly recommend to others. I was travelling on business and the wifi was excellent!

Alex's place was perfect for a quick stop in Taupo. We don't have a dog but if we did it would have been very comfortable and well-catered for in this pet-friendly apartment. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and only a five minute drive away from Taupo. It's also very close to Taupo Kayak Adventures.
