This couple is the best host I have ever came across in New Zealand. They are the true New Zealanders. Perfect place for couples or anyone to spend a good time in Taupo. Close to everything. Had a nice stay. Thanks

Emma and Russell have a great spot and are super friendly, chatty, easy going and accomodating. They have adorable animals as well. Recommended place to stay in Taupo.

Great bed, nice area and very friendly owners! Had a great stay would go back.

We had a fantastic stay with Emma, Russ & family. They are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The sleep out is very sunny & cosy even in winter. The little touches with books, board games & honey were appreciated. The private bathroom was great & really clean. Their house is in a great location - very close to the lake and town only a short drive away. You will have a great time staying here.
