Welcome to our home located only a short drive from beautiful Lake Taupo, New Zealand. We are nestled on 4.5 hectares of farmland. Relax and enjoy the countryside or use it as a base for your adventures. Your cottage is entirely separate from the main house. Everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay is provided for you ... even your continental breakfast for free! Come ... relax ... enjoy ... adventure ...

The space

The entire internals of the cottage have been recently renovated. It is warm, clean, and comfortable, with views of the surrounding countryside. It is a 'studio style' cottage so the bed, lounge and kitchenette are all in one room with a separate bathroom. A variety of teas, coffee, hot chocolate and organic milk are provided as well as a continental breakfast with our compliments. Beach towels are there if you need them for a cool refreshing dip in the lake or a long luxurious soak in the thermal waters. Sit on the deck with your cuppa or wander the paddocks ... lie snuggled up in bed or hit the trails for your next adventure ... Gaze at the mountains on a clear day or wonder at the stars on a clear night. We have a lovely hot shower and a comfy bed all ready for you. And don't forget to sign our unique guest book - take a selfie with our instant photo camera and tape it into the guest book along with your autograph!

Guest access

You have your own parking space and, as the cottage is entirely separate from the house, your own entrance. Sensor lights light the way at night.

Interaction with guests

We are a busy homeschooling family who also operates their own business, but we are here if you need us. We are happy to have a chat, point you in the right direction, or help out if needed.

Other things to note

Please note that the kitchenette does not have an oven or cooktop. It does have a small microwave, fridge, toaster, jug, and all dinnerware. Unfortunately, we can not offer Wifi at this stage as, due to our location, we do not have unlimited access. However, there is free Wifi available in various locations in Taupo towncentre and also at the library and MacDonalds restaurant. There is no dining room suite, but the two bedside tables have a pull out that can be used as side tables in the lounge area to place plates, cups, computers etc.

Would absolutely recommend staying here. Beautiful location that has easy access to Taupo and also loads of available off road safe parking. The supplied breakfast was lovely with home made jam and even dairy free breakfast options. Amazing!

Hi there, welcome to our home and beautiful Lake Taupo! We are a busy homeschooling family who also run our own business based at home. We love our 'piece of dirt' where we raise our own veges, tend our new orchard, farm animals, and homeschool our kids. With eight kids and a few grandkids as well, we lead a fun, love filled, busy life! We know you will fall in love with Taupo - the alpine air, the gorgeous landscapes, the beautiful lake, and the awesome mountains. Come ... enjoy ... relax ... adventure
