Excellent place to stay! Over the years, I have stayed at numerous "top end" holiday apartments in New Zealand. In my experience, some flatter to deceive and do not justify their premium descriptions nor prices. This is certainly NOT the case with Riverside Apartment Taupo So, my overall comment is that the reality was even better than the description! In terms of location, the riverside setting is fabulous: tranquil and very much "by the lake" - the quintessentially key attraction of Taupo. Yet the apartment is just a 4 or 5 minute walk into the very centre of town, which makes access to amentities such as restaurants very straightforward. The apartment itself has a great feel to it: layout, facilities and views all work to make this feel like a superb location for a "top-end" holiday. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a holiday home in Taupo.

The apartment exceeded our expectations. We chose it for location as its a couple of minutes walk to the town centre and the views of the river, you cant beat it. The bathrooms are modern with underfloor heating and we found the beds very comfortable. The apartment was very clean with information and instructions where you need them. Linda was a pleasure to communicate with, always willing to help if needed.

"Absolutely magnificent! Having stayed in AirBnB's around the world, this is among the best AirBnB values. Lovely views, fully equipped, and extremely comfortable. Clean, clean, clean. The garage is large and is a nice bonus."

What a beautiful apartment, great views across the river and lots of room for the 8 of us. Stocked with all the mod cons, including fast wifi to make our stay even more enjoyable. In easy reach of Taupo, which is a fantastic town with great walks, restaurants and a great destination for families with children with any age. Linda was really good at getting in touch and giving directions and all the details we needed for a great stay.

Our stay on Taupo was made perfect by this wonderful apartment on the river. Our family of four had plenty of space and privacy. Great wifi and fully stocked with everything you need in the kitchen wrt appliances. Great location/ we walked to town for dinner on our first night. Very secure as well. The entire complex is clean and beds were super comfortable. Will definitely come back to riverside apartment!
