You have your own fully detached studio apartment at the back of our property with BBQ area and outdoor seating. You will have access to the property, berry, herb and vege garden where we will have lettuces, tomatoes etc in season. Ask Sherrie and she will give you some Pesto (in season) too. Our dog Kaiser is almost always with us, he is a very well trained gun dog. You can close your area off with a little gate that will keep him away from your space. Please note there is no sink in the kitchen. Dishes can be done in the sink bench in the pergola.
Interaction with guests
We are more than happy to advise you about further travel, things to do in this area and fishing access spots on the local rivers and lakes. Peter will be happy to guide you if you would like that too. His rates as are most others are $650 per day including lunch for one or two people. This region has a separate fishing license that you must obtain online through the Department of Conservation website. Please note this is not Fish and Game area. Peter and Sherrie would also like you to know we welcome people from the Rainbow and LGBTQI community to our home. Sherrie worked as a longhaul flight attendant for Air NZ for some twenty years so our service to you will always be First Class!
However should you wish to have quiet time away from us your hosts and the world, we will leave you to yourselves.
Other things to note
We have off road parking but will have to juggle cars around at night for the morning as we both work off site.
Please note well, we have a registered working German Wirehaired Pointer gun dog who has access to the property. Almost always, he will be with us at work or inside our cottage. Very occasionally he will be outside on the back yard so at these times we ask you please to be vigilant in keeping our gates closed and locked at all times for his security and safety. Kaiser is priceless to us.
We accept that you are on holiday however we have wonderful neighbours all around us and after nine PM we ask you to keep the noise to a minimum please. We do not tolerate drug use of any type on our property and Sherrie has a close working relationship with our local Police with her Victim Support work.
We don't mind you smoking but we ask you to smoke outside please.
Gun dogs are quite OK to visit with their own bed and or travel crate.
Peter and I have a love of the great outdoors and the world class fly fishing available here in Turangi. You can also ski, horse ride, kayak, hike, take the Tongariro Crossing where you can climb Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings,raft and mountain bike. We look forward to hosting you. I worked as a flight attendant for Air NZ for twenty years; you should expect your stay with us to be First Class. I have been in hospitality all of my life with motels, luxury B&B's in Judges Bay, Parnell and Tairua, Coromandel. My family also used to own shares and operate within the famous Duke of Marlborough Hotel in Russell. Pete Carty is my famous fly fishing guide husband and we are here in Turangi for the lifestyle. I am also a qualified spa therapist, medical scientist, homeopath, wellness and Reiki practitioner. We love the Turangi community and all the Taupo region has to offer. My motto is 'If it ain't fun then I'm not doin' it!'.
Our house is full of love, fun and laughter with good people creating lasting friendships and memories.
