Hi Travellers, I chose to live at Great Lake Taupo almost 5 years ago drawn by the beauty of the area and my love of fresh water swimming (Nov to April, minimum!) kayaking, mountainbiking, road cycling, hiking, running, tennis, gardening not to mention skiing in winter and the gorgeous Wairakei hot pools. I chose my home as I knew it would be welcoming to guests wanting a level of seclusion while also experiencing lakeside living. The separation of upstairs and downstairs is perfect. Acacia Bay is about 4kms from Taupo and comprises a series of bays - think moonlight swims with the lake just 3 minutes away and a real lakeside ambience. Aside from this I have had a lengthy corporate and consulting career working in large graphic design and public relations consultancies tempered with fundraising in conservation and most recently working as a CEO and marketing principal straddling the engineering / wood processing / architecture / forestry sectors.

During your stay
Depends if you are sporty or not! Almost every day you'll find me mountainbiking,swimming (in summer) hiking up Mt Tauhara or cycling and there is a kayak or dinghy at the lake for use. Also happy to play tennis and have a spare racquet.
