Very basic room with toilet and shower for travelers passing through. Not a great space for long stays as no kitchen only tea and coffee facility and a fridge. Queen bed and a toddler bed. All linen provided Own entrance, the space is under our house at the back. Ten minutes from Taupo centre.
  • Great place to stay near Taupo. It is quite basic but had everything we needed.

    Sisi2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Clean room, private and independent to main house which we liked. The info pamphlets were a great touch.

    Nathalie2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Basic accommodation well suited for a short stay in the area. Nice having a private bathroom and wi-fi for the price. Great communication with host through texts. There is a walking/biking track at the end of the street through a beautiful scenic reserve. Also, the Great Lake Walkway is conveniently accessible for a pleasant 30 minute bike ride into Taupo.

    Dwayne2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great little studio. Very comfy bed. Perfect for a stopover between long trips or just to relax and take in Taupo for a couple of days. Very close to lake. Rachelle is a very organised host and the studio is well equipped.

    Dave2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rachelle and David are great hosts. Essentials as well as fresh towels were provided. We stayed one night on our way back to Auckland airport. Would recommend for a short stay as the hosts describe.

  • Outstanding host and the perfect stop for my wife and I. Location was handy to the cycle way which was great for an evening ride along the water. Rachelle helped store our bikes overnight and was extremely strong with communication. Thanks so much.

    Fire up the barbecue and enjoy the peace and tranquility of our sunny cottage in a secluded setting of native trees and ferns. Stroll across the road to marvel at the Great Lake, or access local walkways alongside the Waitahanui River from the end of our lane. Just a short drive - or scenic lakeside bike ride - to Taupo central. Free wifi internet is included. We provide all bedding and towels.
    The bedroom has a queen-size bed and enough space for a portable cot (provided). The combined kitchen-dining-living area has a small dining table and a kitchenette with fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave (no oven/stove). You can watch the flat-screen TV sitting on the sofa, which converts to a double-size bed. Table folds out to seat 4. There is a shower, basin and toilet in the bathroom.
    We share a lane with three other houses and a small bilingual school. At the end of our lane, there is a walkway that takes you along the picturesque Waitahanui River, which is popular for fishing. There are often people fly-fishing in the mouth of the river at the lake, just a couple of minutes' walk from here. There is public access to the lake just across the road, and here you will find a nice spot for a lakeside picnics, swimming or romantic sunset viewing.
  • An absolute piece of paradise! We loved our quiet and relaxing stay here. Donna couldn’t have been more helpful and the cottage was in excellent condition. It had everything we needed, plus some much needed peace and quiet! 100% recommended! Thanks so much Donna and Jeff for having us and we will definitely be back!!!

    Sarah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable place out of main Taupo town. Very clean and tidy. Toys kept our toddler happy and occupied. Good location to base while exploring Taupo region. Close to fly-fishing spot. Lake Taupo short walking distance. Donna greeted us warmly when we arrived.

    Rebecca2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Donna and Jeff’s cottage is the ideal place to base yourself to explore Taupo and the surrounding area. It is cosy, peaceful and quiet, the perfect place to return to after a busy day. The cottage was spotless and had all that you could need and the bed was really comfortable. Donna and Jeff are lovely hosts and really easy to communicate with. I can’t recommend staying here enough.

    Katie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z

  • The welcome of Dona and Jeff is really nice. Very close to Taupo and the lake, the location in its flower garden is extra. Everything is clean and nothing is missing. We were delighted with this step. My advice: stay there for several days.

    Petra2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the lake and be just down the road from Taupo. Would highly recommend to anyone

    Myles2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable and pleasing for our overnight stay for 2 of us. We think it would have been too small if we were a larger group or spending more time. Close to hosts house but feels secluded and private from nearby properties. Back window looks out to woodland. Has an enclosed area of decking which was a pleasant addition.

    Susan2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Such a clean and cozy cottage !! Would like to stay there for longer! Met Trevor before we left and he is such a sympathic and great person <3 highly recommended

  • We stayed in this cute cabin with our two young kids and it was perfect for our family. The place had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the blackout curtains for nap time. It’s close to the lake and there’s also a playground across the street. Highly recommend.

    Kim2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is the perfect launch pad for adventures on the lake or in the national park! The AC and heavy curtains made for a good night’s sleep, even in summer. We had the pleasure of meeting Trevor and Gail and they were such friendly hosts.

  • Pauline's place while compact feels roomy with lots of places to sit and enjoy. It is tidy and organized with everything you need in her well provisioned kitchen (there is a food processor as 1 example!!) . Pauline is friendly and thoughtful and her space is in a great location. She recommended a lovely walk in the forest and it was lovely. Recommend to other travelers!

    Vikki2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Paulines home was fantastic!! Very convenient location as base camp for the alpine crossing. The only thing better than the hike was the soothing hot tub soak after it was finished. Highly recommended.

    Nathan2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is spacious and comfortable with all you need for a short stay. If you are into hiking, then this spot is ideal and not too far from the Tongariro Reserve. Pauline was there to welcome us, She answered questions about local walks and hikes even before we got there, and again spent time with us when we arrived, sharing information about what we could do in the time we were there, and details regarding nearby options for necessities and dinner. The hot tub was a bonus we really enjoyed on both evenings after our hikes... particularly after a 6 hr tramp to the Tomo Lakes in the Tongariro Reserve.

    Christine2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for our short stay. After skiing all day the private hot tub was a really nice touch to relax the muscles. A nice minimart is right around the corner which made it really convenient to grab a quick late dinner to take out.

    Ryan2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Pauline was lovely, with good communication and flexible. Accommodation was exactly as described; clean, cosy, warm, had everything you need, with the added bonus of the spa! Which is fantastic after a hard days boarding. Super convenient for Whakapapa ski field. Would stay again. Thanks for having us! :-)

    Jessica2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is cozy and has everything we needed for a weekend away. Kitchen was well stocked.. Great to have wifi as normal cell not covered. Nice river walk. Recommend Turangi Tavern for good pub food.

Beautiful home, lots of space indoors and out, amazing views with being right on the lakefront, beautiful sunsets, great tv, having the use of a kayak was awesome, to swim several times each day in a nice sandy bottomed lake, weather was brilliant, and only 10 minute drive to Taupo.

    Relax here with only the lawn and the lake in front of you. Two separate living areas so the family can spread out. Three fireplaces & underfloor heating will keep you cosy & warm. The open plan well stocked kitchen makes cooking for the family a breeze and the view while cooking must be one of the best kitchen views anywhere. Family dining inside or outside by the outdoor fireplace taking in the magnificent sunsets and star filled skies. Magic location.
    Our home has a lodge feel, with linen tinted walls and whitewashed timber throughout. You'll feel the casual charm of locally-quarried stone, and love the way the living areas flow through folding doors onto the garden, leading down to the quiet lakefront. It's perfect for both winter and summer, with sheltered outdoor courtyards and beautiful stone fireplaces - there's a reason we have been voted one of the most beautiful homes in Hatepe village. When you need to kick back and watch something, the Wifi and Sky TV have you covered.
    Hatepe is a world in its own. A beautiful peaceful village filled with native trees and birds; perfect for a walk or quiet bike ride. Cars can only drive at 20kms around the village; so its very relaxed. We are yet to meet anyone that doesn't fall in love with Hatepe. The village also has its own Maori Marare; a fairly unique feature. The culture of the village is rich and very interesting for the overseas visitor.
  • The most perfect place!! Thoroughly recommend

    Gemma2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Lina Maya2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Belinda's place for a family weekend. I can't overstate how beautiful and comfortable it is. I've stayed in a lot of houses, especially in Europe and this one is probably my favourite. The lake view is spectacular, the house is stunning and beautifully furnished, the kitchen equipped for everything you could want to do. Most importantly the house is really well designed and just feels great to be in. Hope to come back many times!

    Sheana2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The property is really unique and it’s character added to our experience! The kitchen was stocked with basics which we appreciated and the views and setting are wonderful. We never turned on the TV but I suggest asking Belinda about it before you arrive. Enjoy!

    Shelley2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were a group of 7 coming from different parts of New Zealand. The photos do not do the house justice. The place is beautiful! The house was spotless and plenty of utensils/additional items provided that really make the difference. Communication was very prompt. The house felt homely while staying very stylish. Perfect place for our get together!

The house is really modern and comfortably furnished. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking. Ellie has prepared us a super delicious breakfast, especially her homemade apple compote was a treat! We can recommend this accommodation to anyone. Ellie is a great and super nice host!

    Enjoy our newly renovated, one bedroom apartment overlooking the lake & the town beyond to Mount Tauhara. Whether its a romantic weekend for two or a base for your adrenalin packed holiday around the central plateau, you will find our cosy cottage an ideal base. A word to the wise, great views also mean a bit of a climb. We have 33 steps up to our door. If you have mobility needs please check the photos before booking. Also check out this great video: https://youtu.be/8ipFL5PlKPc
    The lake edge is a mere 20 meters from our driveway with a 3 minute walk the other direction to our local bar and brasserie, where you will find great food in a relaxing setting. You may like to sit on our deck and watch the activity on the lake; sailing boats, the paraglider rides and jet skis to name a few.
    Te Moenga reserve and boatramp is at the end of the road, just metres from our place. And a grocery store is just two minutes walk
  • The apartment offers a great space for a couple or friends / family who don't mind sharing a bed. What an amazing spot to wake up in the morning or to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. I would always recommend staying here as its only a 10min drive to busy Taupo. Lyanne has put a lot of thoughts into this place and we would like to stay again at Acicia Bay in the future.

  • Very cosy, clean and comfortable, perfect for a couple. Need to bear in mind there are 34 steps up to the studio apartment. The views across Lake Taupo are fantastic. Lynne is very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed staying at her Air bnb.

    Helen2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Paul2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean apartment and the view is spectacular. A must if you love an amazing sunrise view. Close to the town centre and conveniently has a popular restaurant just up the road. We had a fantastic stay.

    Hatepe is famous for it's trout fishing. Guided trout fishing is available on request. The garden backs onto the river and the lakefront. Native bush walks abundant bird life. Cooking classes by prior arrangement. SKIING 40 MINUTE DRIVE OR CATCH A SHUTTLE. The cottage is cosy and provides you with tea, espresso machine. A bar fridge. Quality bed linen and towels . Breakfast provided. Has a microwave and a Weber bbq. Evening meal and cooked breakfast by arrangement
    Leave the hustle and bustle behind and enjoy absolute tranquility whilst staying in the cottage. Bush walks, swimming, fishing, skiing, cooking and time for reflection and relaxation are some of the location's opportunities.
    Hatepe is still an unspoilt fishing village where most residences are used as holiday homes by city folk who crave the special nature of this idyllic settlement.
  • We had a really special time at Susie's in Hatepe. The accommodation was perfect and the location magical. I am missing the garden, the sound of the lake and the sweet song of New Zealand's native birds. Susie is a delightful host, and we are already wondering when we can return.

    Virginia2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • The days we spent in Susie's house were wonderful, the furnishings were very tasteful and of high quality, the breakfast ingredients were plentiful and exclusive, the house, grounds and location were a dream and the cooperation with Susie was extremely nice, uncomplicated, generous and warm! A big thank you and best regards to Susie and a 5-star recommendation to everyone who appreciates such a beautiful hideaway!

    Christiane2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start.. Susie’s little slice of paradise is so beautiful and Susie is so lovely! The cottage is set right by the water amongst beautiful gardens and is very secluded and stylish. We immediately were made to feel at home. We’re very well traveled and have high expectations but Susie’s place (and Susie) exceeded them all. Our trip was magical from start to finish and we can’t recommend her or the cottage highly enough! Susie is a beautiful, genuine and generous soul and we’ll definitely pop in and stay again or even just say hello if we’re passing. Totally deserved 5 stars

    Steve2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Susie is a wonderful, considerate host and her place is superb. If you want a quiet base beside a lovely river, this would be hard to beat.

    John2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hospitality. Felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived. Definitely going to return.

    Reuben2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We truly enjoyed our stay at the rose cottage. The cottage wasn't missing anything and that Susie was providing breakfast was just great. The cottage is located in Susie's backyard - a little green oasis only a few steps a away from the lake and river. Also, Susie was a wonderful host! She's always there to help with any questions while giving you as much privacy as you like. One night we had dinner and some wine together which was just lovely! I hope to stay at the cottage again soon!

    Catharina & Rajat2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Susie's place is very cute and in a perfect location very close to the river and the lake. Susie looked after us impeccably with breakfasts, tips, and good conversation. Would definitely rent again.

    Jamie2019-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We were 4 adults staying for 3 nights over New Year and both the location and accomodation will be memorable for us all. Perfect weather allowed us to eat out in the garden. The bbq was ideal for us for the evening. We swam in the lake which is on your doorstep and travelled to many local sites. Susie goes out of her way to welcome you and make everything possible. Spotlessly clean and photos and description of amenities are very accurate. We strongly recommend this lovely place and would be keen to return.

    Taupo, Waikato, New Zealand

    Lakeside holiday home, situated 20 minutes south of Taupo airport (10 minutes north of Turangi). Although set one house back from the lake, there is a legal right of way to the lake edge. No roads to cross for lake access. Beautiful reserve accessible on the edge of pristine Lake Taupo. Close to several boats launching ramps. Local ski field and Gondola only a 40 minute drive. World class trout fishing location a 2 minute drive. Huge lockup garage to store valuables. Fully fenced back section.
    Large house, with huge deck set only 1 house back from the Lake, with direct Right of Way to the lake without having to cross a road. Beautiful lake views, large fully fenced backyard, large lock up garage. Close to great fishing spots on the Lake and Rivers, boat ramps, ski fields, Tongariro crossing and other wonderful walks.
    This house is our holiday home so there will be basic supplies in the pantry and fridge. Please replace what you use. The neighbourhood is very quiet but the house is on the main road so there is road noise. The upstairs bedrooms have double glazed windows and aircon units so you can reduce noise at night by keeping the windows closed. There are 2 lakeside bedrooms downstairs (plus separate bathroom) and these rooms don’t get the road noise. Plenty of kids games to play. Freeview TV and a hard drive with hundreds of movies is available.
  • We really enjoyed our stay at the lake house. It's everything we hoped for plus some. The house is large so we had plenty of room for us four adults. Even though we had 4 bedrooms for our use, we found that the two upstairs were all we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The beds were very comfortable with air conditioning units in every room. Janice, provided hundreds of movies to choose from for our evening relaxation. The back deck and view to the lake was amazing! We experienced some beautiful sunsets. The location of the house was ideal to some great walks. We did the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and were very happy to come back to a comfortable house. We also swam in the lake. Janice was always quick to respond when ever we had questions. We would definitely recommend for anyone staying at Janice's lake house. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us!

    Ilona2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at this lakeside property. It was very tastefully furnished and the facilities were excellent. Janice was very quick with her responses.

  • Janices place is great. It has everything you need and more. We stayed for 9 days and had a wonderful holiday though it would suit short stays as well. Its in a great location. Close to the lake. If the weathers not so good its a short drive to Turangi ( 10 mins) or Taupo (35 mins) Easy to check in and out. Janice is easy to communicate with and happy to help out with any questions. I would stay again and be happy to recommend to others.

    Please read the listing through thoroughly before booking to insure we are providing the right accommodation for your needs. Our retro inspired cabin is a cozy rest place for people that want a quiet/privet get away (perfect for a couple travelling with a child) with a little bit of unique décor.. SO close to the town centre, the lake and a number of fun and exciting things that Taupo has to offer. We also provide a relaxing BBQ area that's perfect for a few bevvies in the sun.
    The cabin is a cosy, minimal space with a lot of personality, with an off street park for one car, a double bunk bed, a sofa and a quaint little kitchenette with all the amenities you need. Plus a clean and tidy bathroom. What more could you need :-)
    Even though our cabin is VERY close to the town centre... it is situated down a privet driveway away from traffic and general noise pollution. We like to encourage native birds in to our garden which is such a delight to admire and wake up to on beautiful summer mornings.
  • Great little space, close to town and had everything we needed. Host very helpful when we drained our car battery and needed a jump.

    Emily2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

    From your haven in the popular suburb of Acacia Bay, this is a great base from which to leap in to adventures or curl up with a good book. The lake is just around the corner (literally!) and there's much to see & do close by! Your studio is newly renovated with a large kitchenette, gourmet granola, comfy amenities, wifi and Netflix on request. From your haven: *6 mins by car to the town centre; *3 minute walk to the lake; *1 minute walk to a local pub and convenience store.
    This space is yours while you're here so make yourself comfy! Our lovingly cared for studio apartment is a warm, bright and cosy space and is perfect for two guests. The bathroom and toilet are separate rooms just off the main area. We take great pride in being great hosts and always strive for it to be a spotless and inviting haven.
    Acacia Bay is an area popular with holiday makers. Our home is ultra close to the lake. It’s a few minutes walk around the corner! The local restaurant and convenience store is also a minutes walk away so everything's very convenient. Acacia Bay is a little farther away from the main town centre which makes it a quieter neighbourhood but it does mean that you’d need a car or bicycle while staying.
  • We had a great stay at this Air BnB. It is well located in a very nice neighbourhood with easy access to Taupo and other area attractions. The studio is tastefully decorated, sparkling clean and very comfortable with many special touches. The hosts are nothing short of wonderful, so helpful and kind. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone visiting Taupo and area.

    Marian2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant place, very modern and had everything we needed. Good value. Great hosts. Would definitely come back!

    Philip2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • Very nice airbnb. The apartment is clean and perfectly equipped. The hosts are very friendly and happy to help whenever it’s needed. It is also good located with just 2 min (walk) from the lake.

    Philipp2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is lovely. We spent a few nights here and were able to relax in the Airbnb as it was large and comfortable. The space is decorated beautifully and there are plenty of local tips to help you decide what to do aswell as books, magazines and a tv with a Chromecast! Would highly recommend this place.

    Tony2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is clean and tidy. Plenty of space, light and airy. I really loved the modern bathroom, it has amazing amenities and a great shower. There was everything we needed. It was better than I expected. I wish I could stay more. I will definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

    Kalindu2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if you wish to experience a classic Kiwi batch. Pauline is a great host with plenty of local knowledge. If you are a fly fisherman which we were you can just walk 10 minutes and your on the Tauranga Taupo river ready to cast a line. If you want to drive 15 minutes your at the Tongariro river mixing it up with people that fly from all around the world to catch New Zealand wild trout. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Pauline’s batch. Thanks again Pauline. Cheers Dave & Nang

    David2019-06-03T00:00:00Z

  • A cute little place to stay with a great view of Lake Taupo. You don't have a lot of space and relatively little privacy, since there is no real door to the toilet, but this is only separated by a thin wall as a privacy screen. We still liked it. And the hosts provide a delicious breakfast!

    書蒨2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay! Incredible view. What you can’t tell from the pictures is that the amazing view gets even more amazing as the moon rises above the lake and you get a view from the front porch. We were lucky enough to catch it not just on a full moon but during a super moon. Clean place. Excellent hosts. Just the best.

    Dan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

Check out our Instagram #kowhaistudiotaupo. Lots of photos from our local adventures.
    We are less than 1 kilometer from the lake ( an easy walk there but a hill to get home. Perfect for the electric bikes) We are a few steps away from the path into the Botanical gardens which has wonderful viewing seats to sit and admire the constantly changing vistas of lake and mountains. We are 1.9 km to our famous Two-mile Yacht club which serves the best pizzas and cold beers in summer along with hiring paddle-boards, kayaks, and sailing boats. They have live music Fridays and Sundays and in winter they have roaring fires and warming red wines to sip away the hours and watch the sunset. We are 1.3 km from De Brett's thermal park with a range of heated pools and a day spa. We have two top restaurants within a kilometer and another 3 within 2km. We are 4km to the Taupo town center and 5.9 km to Taupo airport. We have a superette and takeaway less than a km away.
  • A modern stylish space with a light filled bedroom sitting space, plus an outdoor sitting area for breakfast or a wine before dinner. Loved the use of electric bikes to ride to the lakeside.

    A small but special little place tucked neatly between rolling hills. Kawakawa Hut provides a simple but comfy getaway for two in a beautiful countryside. Close by lies the vegetable garden, and friendly cows graze just over the fence. Further out over surrounding farmland and you will see Tongariros snow capped mountains in the distance, making for a peaceful vista to sit back and enjoy. The hut is off grid and is built of repurposed materials so that your stay has a low environmental impact.
    Kawakawa Hut is a simple, comfy space with everything you need in one room, with the addition of a small ensuite. The hut has been positioned to the North with windows on all sides to maximise the winter sunlight and provide views of the surrounding farmland. Rest on the queen size bed, relax on the sofa by the fire, or chill outside under the ‘lean-to’ porch with a drink. The hut provides a safe haven for all seasons. The basic kitchen & bar make for a great area for enjoying food and drinks while looking out at Mt Ruapehu. A BBQ is just outside. The kitchen has a camp style gas cooker, a motorhome style fridge/freezer, coffee plunger, plates, cups and cutlery etc. The hut is off grid and runs off batteries so USB charging is provided and mains powerpoints can be used through an inverter but care needs to be taken to not drain the batteries. No Wifi either but there is good cellphone coverage. We recommend you get back to basics and unwind here. Keep warm and cozy in winter next to the logburner, which can be dampened right down to keep you warm through the night. Ample kindling and firewood located in the lean-too, just watch out for the spiders and other bugs that share their countryside with you. Plenty of space for parking if you have a boat trailer or large vehicle.
    We feel will live in a very special place, with a wonderful rural community and so much on offer with the lake, bush and mountains etc. Access to the Lake is nearby at Kinloch, 10 minutes drive. Put your boat in at the ramp there and enjoy fishing, watersports or exploring some of the Western bays. Grab some takeaways at the Kinloch Store, they also stock all your convenience needs. Or visit our favourite The Tipsy Trout for fantastic coffee and a wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner. Kinloch beach is great for casual lakeside fun. A little way down and across the road from the Hut is the new Otakatake mountain bike track part of the “Great Lake Trails” which takes you downhill through neighbouring bush, all the way to Kinloch Bay (10km). Alternatively head West down the main road approximateley 1km to the start of the Kawakawa Track, taking you down to Kawakawa Bay, a stunning spot, unreachable by road and a destination for the rock climbing crowd. Or if you are feeling fit why not complete the loop which is approx 38km of riding with stunning views!
  • This is a cosy hut to relax. Very nice design and all what you need to live. Everything was clean and comfortable. Peaceful place with a lovely vegetable garden and fireplace. 20 minutes with car to Taupo.

  • Lovely rustic getaway! We really enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer - especially to enjoy the fire pit. There were really good facilities (we assumed it would be very basic but wish we’d brought bacon and eggs for the morning) and the log burner is lovely! Very clean and tidy with thoughtful touches and the ben linen is divine! Would highly recommend!

    Holly2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely place to stay. Quite simple but very cozy and you won’t want for anything. Lovely hosts too!

    Catherine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Loved being out in the countryside at Chanel’s Tiny House! My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon road trip. Chanel and her husband lived here while building their own house nearby so you know it’s designed thoughtfully and with comfort in mind. Had a BBQ, lit the fire pit, enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine; perfect.

    Kalib2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • When I read the comments, I saw that the room was dirty, and I was still worried. There may be other houses owned by the owner, this one I live in is quite clean. It's just that there is no place to eat nearby, this is not a problem for the homeowner. Overall pretty good.

    2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Stayed one night. Shared with another couple. Clean and quiet. Thanks Gre!

    This is a fisherman's bach, (3 bedrooms) located at the end of a small quiet street. Lake Taupo is a 10 minute walk away and the Tauranga Taupo River a stone's throw away. The bach is well equipped, but GUESTS MUST SUPPLY OWN BED LINEN, TOWELS, food etc and CLEAN before leaving. No wifi. If you are unable to clean the house before you leave or supply your own linen it's better if you find a motel or hotel nearby. We try to keep the price lower by not having a cleaning fee.
    $20 per extra person.
    The house is at the end of a short quiet street with mostly holiday homes. It is close to the river, lake and some restoration native , close by. You are likely to have Whiteheads (Popokatea), Kereru, Ruru and a host of other natives birds around the house.
  • Fantastic place!

    Sammy2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a unique home with some beautiful surrounding area. We ate dinner on the deck and watched the birds after a walk along the river. It was a great home that fit our style for a family getaway perfectly.

    Jade2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is homely, comfortable and just as described. We didn’t need the fire on but I imagine it would be cosy in the winter. We enjoyed the books and puzzles too.

    Phillipa2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Aurelie2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Quite a large home but really homely and cosy with a nice fireplace. Great value for money if you aren’t afraid to bring your own linen and give the place a once over before leaving.

    Striking Lake Views, with a private tranquil feel. Only 400m from the lake and 5 minute drive or relaxing 30min stroll along the lakefront path to the centre of town. The decor reflects beautiful blues from the lake and continues into the cottage giving it a serene feel. With a heat pump you will stay cozy over the winter nights. Your guest house has everything for a relaxing couples getaway, solo adventure or to bring the kids or good friends along, with 2 single beds in a separate room.
    The main room has a very comfortable Queensize bed that overlooks the lake and mountains. It is fitted with a wardrobe, drawers, side tables, 2 lounge chairs and a TV for movies in bed. This space also has a kitchenette with a very quiet bar fridge, microwave, toaster, tea and coffee facilities as well as the accessories you would need. A round occasional table for two can be used for dining indoors when the weather is not conducive to al fresco. The second bedroom in the cottage has a wardrobe and two single beds available for your additional guests. There is no separate living space. The Cottage is quiet and makes for the perfect getaway. With a private courtyard and decked areas with plenty of space for activities. For the winter months we have a heat pump which means you can stay warm and cosy. You will be close to the lake - great for cooling off on hot summer days or finding a hot water spot when the temperature drops. It is also close to town for retail and dining.
    Hilltop is close to town and a friendly community. Our house is very quiet and peaceful considering its proximity to town. Taupo De Bretts Spa and Hotpools are only 2 mins up the road where you can relax in the geothermal pools or get a massage. Espresso Cove which is 400m down the road and right on the lakefront is a great place for a spot of breakfast/ lunch or even just pick me up coffee.
  • Cool place, lots of space, friendly and just lovely!

    Frederikke2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway! Beautiful spot :)

    Courtney2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • The hilltop cottage is lovely. It's nice big space for 2 people. We didnt meet Dan as he was away but checking in was easy. We were able to use all the space outside including the BBQ, the views are amazing, sunsets to die for! We would happily stay again and reccomend it highly

It is peaceful, beautifully decorated, fully equiped with everything we needed and more and has a homely feel to it that seriously made our trip to NZ. Ellie was a great host, not only making communication really easy and timely, but also with her suggestions of things to do around the area and places to eat. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Marta2019-03-09T00:00:00Z

    We have so enjoyed living permanently in our motorhome, we thought we’d share the experience. The motor home provides you with everything you need to live - cooking facilities, small fridge, shower, flushing toilet, comfortable double bed, all in good condition, and even a small log burner. If you have ever considered living in a tiny house, now is the time to try one!
  • It was awesome! We absolutely loved the motor home. Fully equipped kitchen, super comfy bed, large living area, clean bathroom. Thelma & Warren welcomed us in the evening. We were pretty late as it took us longer to drive from Wellington to Turangi. Hence we struggled to find their house in the dark (Google is not the best help!) so they came out with a torch, lighting the way. Super sweet hosts. Won't forget this accommodation!

    Perched on a cliff near the edge of Lake Taupo, the elevated views from your private spacious, modern & warm apartment look out over the water to Mt Tauhara & the lights of Taupo. Wake early enough & you'll enjoy views of the sun rising behind the mountain. Situated in popular Acacia Bay, from the front door you can walk to the local swimming area & boat ramp in less than a minute – or the local store and bar/restaurant (The Bay) in three minutes. Taupo town is only a seven minute drive away.
    The apartment is spacious and has been recently renovated. The TV has Netflix connected which is ready for you to enjoy but does not currently get TV reception (will soon!). You also have access to unlimited wifi. The fully kitted out kitchen has elements, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, microwave and everything you would likely need with the exception of an oven. The Queen bed has fresh linen and the space also has a sofa, desk and bar stools.
    Acacia Bay is a fantastic neighborhood to base yourself whilst in Taupo. It has great swimming spots (the boat ramp only minutes away), nice walks that you can do around the area and the shop and restaurant a short stroll from the front door.
  • Fantastic place and location, stayed here for 4 nights and it was really clean and hosts were very friendly :)

    Christine2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • Had a wonderful stay! Check in was a breeze given the thorough directions. The view is stunning from the place and the apartment itself is gorgeous. It was an immense help having basic kitchen necessities (pots, pans, oils, seasoning) that allowed us to make a few meals at home. Acacia Bay is only a ten minute drive from the downtown area, so it's actually nice to get away from the bustle. We had a lovely stay in this lovely place!

    Cassandra2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • This place was exactly as advertised. The heat pump/AC was a very welcome recent addition. It was clean and the view is pretty good! The only way in and out is via lift. I wasn’t fond of this initially (and was aware when I booked) but grew more comfortable. We enjoyed being super close to all things Taupo. The place is pretty private. A surprise to us was people coming up the outside stairs which is on the side of this unit. You can pull the shade to resolve. Of note: there is noise above you but we could tell that they tried to keep it to a minimum.

    My house is 45 minutes walk from the centre of town. If you require pick up or drop off I would be happy to help if possible. If you are driving there is free off street parking. Drive up the shared driveway and my house is the last on the left. De Bretts and AC Baths are close enough to walk. There is a block of shops 5 minutes walk away with bakery, takeaways, small supermarket and liquor store. Bikes are available and local buses go to the Town Centre.
    This room has two single beds available for one or two people. If you book this room for yourself you will not be sharing it with anyone else.
  • We really liked our stay in Julies home. She was very friendly and helpful. Above that she gave us very good advice on our further journey (the great Walks). We can recommend staying there :)

    Lukas2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Open living spaces, parking galore, easy access to town and the motorways out from Taupo. Julie is a wealth of knowledge about cycling around New Zealand and a very welcoming host that made me and my partner feel relaxed and at ease. For NZ and overseas guests, I think you'll like going here.

    Tyler2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • such a nice host & space to stay in! Thank you so much for having us,

    Enyd2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Julie’s place is quite wonderful. Whether you want to relax in a comfortable and bright room or if you’d like to head into town for some excursions, this is a great location for both. Julie’s home is perfectly clean and exceptionally welcoming. She really makes you feel at home and offers the best balance of engaging conversation and privacy. The host, Julie is also very helpful, often offering to drive me to the downtown area or taking my luggage. This was so kind of her! I really hope to return soon! This place has a part of my heart.

    Christal2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • If we could pack Julie and her home into our bags for the rest of our NZ trip, we would. And if we could give a golden 10/5 star review once a year, we’d give it to her, too! An absolutely lovely and welcoming host, a cozy space and truly a home away from home. We can wholeheartedly recommend staying here. Some tips: For longer durations, you may want a car. Don’t hesitate to ask Julie for a pickup like she stated in her profile! And the Tongariro Crossing Shuttle (footprint logo) picks you up just around the corner.

  • Nikki’s place is awesome! The space is super confortable, very clean and the view is so relaxing. We lived our stay there so much!

  • Nicola’s tiny home was the perfect, private getaway for us in Taupo. It was only a 10-15minute drive away from the city and an even shorter drive to the beautiful Acacia Bay. Check in was really easy with clear instructions from Nicola. There was a beautiful front deck which was great for chilling out in the afternoon and early evening. The bed was also the most comfortable bed we’d slept in in a long time! One thing for future travellers to be aware of is that it is a bit further away than other accommodation, so I’d suggest those who want to be amongst it to stay a bit closer. The other is that we stayed during a very hot couple of days and the tiny house got quite warm. Nicola had provided a fan, but it would have been great to have fly wire screens on the windows so we could have the windows open in the evening and let the cool breeze in without being swarmed by bugs! Having said that, we would definitely still give the place five stars and would love to stay here again.

  • An absolutely amazing place to stay. We went for a quiet weekend to relax and unwind and the space was perfect. The deck is great for lounging on. The bed was so comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

  • Loved our stay here. A very unique place and very clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed the bbq and eating outside in the evenings and the wireless speaker that is provided is a nice touch.

The kitchen is equipped for cooking your own meals if desired. Standard wifi provided for your convenience. Great for animal lovers - very friendly cat and dog live at the property.
  • Thanks

  • Great place to stay, and very convenient for the Alpine Crossing. Their welcome booklet has a ton of useful information regarding the Crossing, shuttle services, food and groceries, and the area overall. Very Helpful! 10/10 And they even have the cutest and friendliest cat and dog! Couldn’t ask for a better little base camp.

    Brock2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment with everything we need. We enjoyed using the full kitchen to cook our own meals. Phillip and Lee were thoughtful in providing a folder with all important information (and tourist tips) of Taupo, which were useful.

    Che Seng2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • Great stay, we felt very welcome and there was ample privacy.

    Mackenzie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and just slightly off the lake but so convenient for us. Great place and very clean and tidy. The space is huge and great if you have been traveling for a bit and need to re-organize. Thank you for having us!

    Tara2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really such a comforting stay. House was spotless and very stylish. Phillip was kind and very welcoming. He allowed for full privacy but ensured he was close if you ever needed him. Will definitely be back if I find myself in the area again.

    Janine2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely quiet space to spend a weekend. Perfect location to access all the touristy destinations but without the noise of downtown. Thoughtful touches from the host make this place so relaxing!

    Sylvia2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hospitality and fairly fast responses. Was a perfect little home to get away from hostels for a couple of nights. Super comfy bed and Craig was kind enough to drop in some bread for me. Only thing is that if you do not have a car, it is a 30 minute walk from the town centre and public transport is scarce. However, other than that, I had a fantastic stay at Craig’s place.

    Michaela2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is my last stop for my road trip around NZ. I arrived on a rainy day and was all wet in my motorcycle gear. Craig made room on his drive way for me to park my vehicle. The check-in was super easy and everything I needed to warm down was already prepared - hot bath, heater, a smart TV with Netflix, even hot chocolate... this is a very independent and self contained unit, talking about the host in every detail. Thanks for having me in the studio and would definitely come back next time in Taupo.

    Vincent2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is by far, one of my favorite places I’ve stayed in Airbnb thus far!! The location is perfect, the space is so clean, and Craig’s hospitality is so thoughtful!

    Nicole2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Craig’s place is much bigger than it seems. Amazing host, quick responses, very welcoming and friendly. Great local tips for places to eat and things to do! Everything you would want for a stay in Taupo!

    Carl2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was so spacious and full of light. Loved having all the windows and the tranquil bath. It was the best relaxing retreat. Appreciated the natural bath products as well. The fur babies were a delight, added all the happiness to my day 😃

    Alyssa2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Easy, convenient, great stay while working in Taupo. The description is super accurate and the only surprises were pleasant ones, like the comfy pillow top mattress. Very convenient location. Loved the pups out back and the adorable bunny & guinea pig menagerie! The tiny cons I experienced were not the fault of the host, who obviously put a lot of thought into how to alleviate any problems. For example, flies get to be an annoyance if the windows are left open, but fly spray is even provided in the studio--problem solved! I also was slightly worried the mini-fridge would be too small to hold 5 days' worth of groceries for one person, but it ended up being the *perfect* size. There is some noise transfer from above when the family is home, as the description says, but this stops early in the evenings and is definitely not a big deal. The place is spacious, with very comfortable, ample furnishings and easily enough room for 2 people. The bathtub is very nice to have, and the bathroom is very roomy as well. The kitchenette had everything I needed--pots, pans, plates, silverware, bowls, cups, spatula, etc. With the mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, hot plate, and toaster oven, I had everything I needed to save $$ and not have to eat out at all. I loved exploring Netflix and other media on the tv (I don't have this at home). Craig provided wonderful hospitality--there if you needed anything but was equally happy to leave you to yourself if you wanted. I had everything I needed and more :) It was a joy to stay here, and a fantastic deal. Well worth every penny!

  • A peaceful escape in a stylish living space. Close enough to the busy hive of Taupo town - but far enough away so you can escape to your own quiet oasis. Comfortable and super clean. Espresso machine was a nice touch.
