The space

Our home is a spacious 5 bedroom family home with amazing views over open spaces towards the mighty Waikato River and Mt Tauhara.
We have two living areas, a large kitchen that you are free to use, and comfortable bedrooms. We are open to children staying, just let us know.

We have a laundry available for your use.
We also have chickens for fresh free range eggs!
Our gardens are being developed and maturing and ready to be enjoyed.
Heaps of safe off street parking.
Our home is full of books, games, free Wifi, music, piano and guitar if you would like to entertain us with your abilities.

We live in a comfortable part of town, all the homes around us are also on 2 acres, and one can easily walk to the CBD in about 15 minutes, but takes a bit longer coming home as it is up hill!! There is no public transport, so a car would be necessary to enjoy Taupo.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to enjoy all the gardens, you have access to the kitchen, family and living rooms and the laundry if you need it.

Interaction with guests

We welcome what ever level of interaction our guests are most comfortable with. Guests are welcome to share an evening relaxing with us or simply unwinding in their private room.

Raewyn is a lovely host, nothing was too much trouble. The reviews and photos do not do enough justice : perfect! Our paths did not cross this time but a new trip appears likely and I look forward to finally meeting up. Recommend 100%.

Raewyn and Kevin were lovely hosts. They happily accomidated us and two infant babies, they even entertained them which was so sweet. Breakfast was great. Location looks over a beautiful rural setting and it's about a 5 min drive to Taupo centre. Rooms were comfy and quite. We had a great stay and am sure you will as well.

Raewyn and Kevin were warm and friendly hosts. It was a pleasure to overnight with them on the way down to Wellington.

We are a relaxed family, who have a spacious family home on the edge of town.
Our five children have scattered themselves, leaving the nest nearly empty - and ready for others to enjoy the space, scenery and gardens.
We have a dog who shares our 2 acres: Ollie who loves to play soccer with anyone energetic enough.
Kevin and I have lived in Taupo for 20+ years, and are well acquainted with what Taupo has to offer. From fishing to golf, café's and restaurants, mountain biking, triathlons, walks/hiking, water sports to name a few.
We are used to having guests share our home, and have been involved in hospitality for a number of years. Ideally, you would need a car to enjoy what Taupo has to offer, and we have plenty of off street parking. We are happy for those touring in a camper van, who want a break........for you to park in the driveway, and enjoy a night or two of home comforts.
We are flexible, and if you have any special requests - just ask!!
