The house is well located for local activities(cycle trail, forest walks) and has a terrific view over the lake and to the mountains. Great in the day time or at night for star-gazing with no lights around. It is a bit of a walk down to the lake itself. Cathy made us very welc…

Stunning location, but not a 'real home stay' experience. Crap bed, lumpy pillows and average welcome. You need to really enjoy welcoming people to be in this business, we didn't really feel that.

Response from Cathy:
We are sorry that Rachel & Tom did not enjoy their stay. This is contrary to feedback we have received from other guests. We are disappointed that they did not come to the house for a cup of tea as invited, instead choosing to pull the curtains and close themselves off for a couple of hours. Some of the concerns they raised could have been dealt with at the time, had they communicated with us. We had made a birthday cake for Rachel but as they did not come into the house, we were unable to present it to her. They also chose not to have breakfast. We note that Rachel has not been an Airbnb member for long, so perhaps a few more Airbnb stays will allow her to adjust her expectations. Apart from their negative feedback, they did leave the room in a tidy state which was appreciated.

Really nice place with a great host! I really recommend this place to everyone who wants to spend some time in a great countryside to relax. It is a really calm and cosy place with a great view to the lake. Cathy is a great host, really friendly and helpful.

This was our best Air BnB experience hands down. We were meant to stay two nights but extended our stay to four because we loved it so much. Cathy and Craig were so lovely and it was great spending time with them and feeling so relaxed that we could do our own thing in their home…

This cute home is perfect to get away and get out into the countryside! Cathy and Craig were amazing hosts and we loved talking to them. Their dog Harri was a blast, and we got to feed the alpacas in the morning! We would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

Only minutes away from Taupo but a world away from it's crowds, commercialism and traffic noise. What an incredibly beautiful, serene, peaceful & relaxing, in short, idyllic, place Cathy has. Stunning views are everywhere! Cathy & Craig are lovely, welcoming hosts. Dinner was DE…

We moved back to the country in late 2012. We have a 15 acre block which a neighbour grazes with sheep and cattle. We have an Old English Sheepdog who loves people. We have lots of books, we are keen on gardening, we like doing some of the walks around us. I am a keen photograp…
