There are plenty of mountain biking trails and walking tracks in the vicinity.
Lake Taupo is the largest lake in the Southern hemisphere.
Food and drink in kitchen and dining area only please.
There is new carpet and lino in the house, so please remove any footwear that may cause damage.
Please do not go downstairs into the garage, this is a private area.
The curtains at the front of the house in the dining room and the double queen bedroom have a raking ceiling with the curtain track attached at the same angle. Please do not move the curtains on the track. To open the curtains please lift the front edge of the curtain over the hold back at the outer edge of the window.
The white handled knives are bone handles and can not be washed in the dish washer. Please hand wash these utensils.
The new induction hob requires special cleaning. If there is a spillage whilst you are cooking, please clean it up with a damp cloth immediately to avoid permanent damage. The special products for cleaning the hobs are under the sink. This needs to be done after each use please.
The induction hob requires special, very expensive pots. These pots are not suitable to be washed in the dishwasher, please hand wash theses pots and their lids. Thank you.
