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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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

  • 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.

  • 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

    Nestled in the peaceful area of the Botanical gardens is our place to rest and recharge your mind and spirit. Our retreat is opposite the vast reserve surrounding you with bird song and walks into the lush New Zealand native bush. We have a secluded courtyard to sit and contemplate whilst having a glass of wine and reading magazines from our selection. The room is a comfortable space designed with relaxation in mind. Includes free electric bikes to make the most of Taupo's fabulous bike paths.
    The room has a Super king bed which can be divided into two King singles, tv, sounds system and magazines/books for your enjoyment. The kitchenette has a fridge, sink, and a microwave, cutlery and plates and glasses. Please note there is no oven but you have use of an outdoor BBQ. There are a private bathroom and separate toilet within the studio. This is a new fit-out so everything is crisp and clean and designed to make your stay comfortable. We provide a continental breakfast including coffee, teas, bread, spread, and cereal. We have two electric bikes available to use that will take you up the hill from the lake with ease and make for a peaceful meander around the Botanical garden or around the varying paths all along the lake. 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.

  • Kirstin’s place is lovely, all new and exceptionally clean, a short distance from the Lake and the lovely cycle track into town about 3kms. The E bikes were great especially for the return uphill journey. Lots to do in the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying here, great huge comfy bed and brilliant shower.

    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.

    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!

  • 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!

  • The room is very comfortable with a private bathroom just down the hall. Nella provides several options for breakfast, including French Press coffee and tea. Their place is located about two miles from the town center, so they’re very close to everything. But the best part of our stay were Nella and Graeme. It was a pleasure to exchange travel stories with them and to get some great local tips, and Graeme even graciously took us out for a quick visit to Huka Falls before dropping us off at our bus! I highly recommend staying with them!

    Clara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I love this place. Host Nella and her husband are very nice to me. And her home was sooooo cozy and lovely. Because of these things, my holiday was more fantastic than I expected.

  • What a lovely few days we had in this nice apartment. Great hosts who provided us with thoughtfull amenities. Amazing value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

  • The place is amazing and deserve more than 5 stars. It’s confortable, well decorated, super clean, peaceful and you will find everything you need for your stay. It’s really a nice home feeling. The top: the view from the lake is just amazing. Sarah and Paul are such nice and lovely people. We had a real warm and loveliest welcoming. They really know how to make people confortable and the communication is just super easy. It’s definitely one oh the best Airbnb we have done and we are traveling since 5 months now. We will definitely come back next time we are in Taupo. This place is highly recommended.

    Hilda2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Paul and Sarah’s place for my Mother and Grandmother - they had nothing but rave reviews to give about their hosts, the accommodation and the lovely location.

    Camille2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • How do I rate Paul and Sarah’s place 6 stars?? Their place was WONDERFUL! Very neat. Very cute. Thoughtful touches in the amenities. A marvelous view of the city. And Sarah was a tremendous host! (We didn’t get a chance to meet Paul). Needless to say, if/when we visit Taupo again, we would DEFINITELY want to stay here!

    Drew2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • As someone who has used airbnbs all over the world, and 10 in the last month in NZ, Paul and Sarah's has been the loveliest airbnb I've stayed at. We had the most welcoming stay in Taupo. The space is amazing, even the room which is noted as being small doesn't feel it. The view of the lake is perfect to sit and look over whilst having a coffee and breakfast. Sarah left really nice touches with breakfast, bed side treats and lots of snacks and the basics in the cupboard and fridge. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and would definitely stay here again when visiting Taupo.

    Melanie2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay in Taupo! A clean and stylish bach with everything you need in an amazing location with a beautiful view overlooking the lake. Friendly hosts, good communication, and gave us great tips on things to do in the area. Highly recommend.

    Elizabeth2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were the first guests at Paul’s and Sarah’s lovely place and it was just perfect (and the best accommodation during our three week trip!). We really enjoyed all the sweet little details in the apartment, the beautiful view from the terrace over Lake Taupo and the well-equipped apartment & kitchen. We can highly recommend to stay at Paul’s and Sarah’s place, they were really nice and lovely hosts!

    Welcome to Fox Cottage at the Lake House. A charming country style annex behind our home situated on the beautiful lake at Five Mile Bay, Taupo. Five Mile Bay is 5 miles (8km) from the centre of town.
    The Queen bedroom is a perfect retreat for couples or singles to relax in. The Cottage has its own private entrance, including a stylish private bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities are available in the Cottage. There is a small refrigerator in the wardrobe.
    Five Mile Bay is one of the most beautiful locations on Lake Taupo. The Great Lake Walkway or "Lion's Walk" is located directly in front of the property, a 10km, Grade 1 paved ride that travels along the shoreline. We are roughly 5 miles (8km) from the town centre, where there is ample shopping, bars and restaurants available. Other attractions on your doorstep include fly fishing, golf, mountain biking, white water rafting, skiing, boating and many other lake activities. For those more adventurous wishing to travel a little further, Mt Ruapehu and the Tongariro Crossing (NZ Great Walk) are a short drive away. We are a 50 minute drive from Rotorua, New Zealand's thermal playground. There's something for everyone - your hosts are very happy to provide recommendations.
  • A very stylish apartment right on the lakeside with all amenities nearby. Highly recommend.

    Anne2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fabulous modern accommodation in an ideal location. Rebecca and Colin made us most welcome when we arrived. After the long drive we had...I decided to go for a swim as Rebecca advised that the water in the Lake was lovely and warm. I wasn’t disappointed! It is less than a 10 min drive into Taupo with plenty of Restaurants and Cafes to choose from. We had only booked for 1 night but recommend that a longer stay is a must for this lovely accommodation and beautiful location!

    David2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, room and hospitality! Our stay here was the perfect pit stop to Hawke’s bay. Swimming in the lake at 7:30pm was the highlight! Beautiful gardens too! Thank you!

    Billy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay and relax, highly recommended

    Sarah-Lee2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Simply stunning and a place we shall remember for a long time and somewhere we wished we could have stayed longer. Rebecca and Colin are perfect hosts and welcomed us in person to explain everything. The access to the beach is easy and a dip in the Lake essential ( perhaps not in winter) to refresh you. Plenty of places to eat within a few minutes drive. If you want a touch of luxury with peace and quiet - this is it!

    Ian2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation with exceptional decor. The house and garden were immaculately clean and helped us relax from the moment we arrived. We would highly recommend Rebecca as a host and assure future guests of a wonderful stay. The short walk to the lake for a swim was so refreshing and the garden is charming.

    Newly built, custom-designed, eco-friendly, tiny house nestled among kowhai, plum, maple & feijoa trees on one of Taupō's township's largest sections (Richmond Heights suburb - 6 minute drive to CBD). Interior design is Scandinavian - light and airy. Double-glazing, insulation & heat pump will keep you toasty warm in winter & cool in summer. Screens (unusual in Aotearoa) allow you to catch an evening breeze without uninvited insects/mammals sneaking in!
    A tiny house, Kōwhai Korner is ideal for single or duo travelers with queen bed in loft but can also accommodate families or small groups with additional bed(s) of your choice - queen or single air mattress, porta-cot, etc. We recommend viewing listing photos and accompanying descriptions, which accurately portray the space, before booking. We designed and build our tiny house as a te whare āio – a peaceful, calm, restorative place for visiting whānau (family) and friends. Located down a shared drive atop a quiet cul-de-sac, Kowhai Korner provide guests with the opportunity to wake up to tuis while still having easy access to the Botanical Gardens (5 minute walk), lake (15 minute walk/2 minute drive) and the CBD (45 minute walk/6 minute drive). Our whānau has committed to living more simply and sustainably and appreciate your cooperation in helping minimise human impact on our local environment. To help move our whānau toward zero waste, we are now purchasing the majority of our home and tiny house supplies through Bin Inn and The Source. Glass milk and muesli containers, Boomerang bags, resuable Taupō one cup and takeaway containers, composting and recycling are all provided to help guests enjoy, care for, and make the most of Kōwhai Korner and beautiful Lake Taupō region.
    Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood (wake up to tuis!) at top of cul-de-sac yet close to town (6 minute drive or 45 minute walk).
  • Amazing experience at tiny house. Carrie and Thomas were very helpful. They provided us with plenty of supplies, fresh fruit. They have made a folder full of suggestions of places to eat and activities to do. Communication was 10/10 Best place we have stayed

  • Attractive, functional, unique! Birds chirping, screens for soft breezes, convenient location! Private, safe, and sweet family! We loved our four days in this Taupo home. My husband and I are in our 70’s, and we wanted to try tiny house living. The experience was delightful!

    Nancy2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely LOVED my stay at the tiny house! Perfect in size and with all the amenities needed for my work trip. The trees surrounding the house gave such a feeling of tranquility, perfect after a stressful day. Will definitely love to stay again in future.

    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 :)

  • 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

    Kailee2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

I appreciate how she makes the effort to connect her guests to one another. It shows that she enjoys hosting guests and being hospitable. Her place is something like a hostel for adults, which I like since I often stay at them.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Brett's place was the perfect place for us at this point in our travels. A washing machine and drier were very welcome whilst we relaxed on the balcony with a lengthy breakfast. The bedroom was quite small and no TV or fridge, but more than compensated for because you have access to very large shared space including breakfast kitchen area, a fridge for guests, balcony overlooking Lake Taupo, huge TV in lounge. Brett and Penny were very welcoming kind hosts and really let you share their home. Good luck with restoring the waterfall.

    Neil2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Super host, very kind, responsive and accommodating! Room according to the photos, very comfortable bed, but super well equipped and clean. I recommend without hesitation!

    Charlotte2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super hospitable, beautiful house, cute breakfast provided and super clean and cosy!

    Summer2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with a great host! The place is cute and clean, and Nanette is a wonderful host. Breakfast was very good, too. Would definitely stay there again!

    Maja2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to recharge and refresh. My bed was so comfy and the sheets were super soft, I really appreciated that. I used the laundry facilities and that was great. Multiple bathrooms for guests to use, with nice showers/tub, fresh towels and toiletries. Location not too far from town and secure parking was a bonus. Would definitely recommend. Only suggestion to think over would be to maybe add a curtain or blind to the little window above the room door as the light from other rooms shines in at night if other guests are up and I prefer a nice dark room for sleeping.

    Kyra2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Old fashioned Kiwi hospitality

    Nigel2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nanette and her two girls are very friendly and cute. I loved my time here and actually extended my stay. If you want to feel at home and meet a lot of lovely people, this is the place for you!

    Tina2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nanette and her daughters are so welcoming and friendly. The comfiest bed I’ve slept in for a long time with super soft bamboo sheets! Nanette had also made yoghurt and bread for the guests which was a lovely touch, and gave some great tips for my trip.

    Whether just passing through on business, staying for a few nights to explore, or basing yourself for an extended period whilst training for a sporting event, this convenient location has it all. Enjoy a comfortable stay in your own separate ground floor studio with private entrance. Only a minutes stroll down to the lakefront on the IM run course and as it states in the name, just a brisk Two Mile walk into Taupo town centre. Free unlimited WIFI and Netflix.
    * Private and comfortable for 2-4 people. * The unit is probably most suited for a maximum of 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children. * The initial rate is based on 2 people sharing the king bed. If the booking is made for 2 people, we assume 2 guests are sharing. * There is an extra charge for more than 2 people or 2 single people wanting separate rooms. * If you are 2 single people but wanting separate rooms, please make the booking for 3 people so that the required beds are prepared ahead of your stay. * If you are 3 people and all three want separate beds, please make the booking for 4 people so that all the beds are prepared ahead of your stay. * The unit consists of 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchenette with parking for only one car right in front of the unit. * The 2 private outdoor spaces where you can relax, make up for the absence of an indoor living room. * Two super comfortable bedrooms with freshly ironed linen. Bedroom 1 has a super king bed and the second bedroom has a trundler that can be converted into 2 singles beds. * The studio has a kitchenette equipped with microwave, bar fridge, dinnerware, toaster, kettle. * Coffee, tea, milk, hot chocolate etc. * There is NO stove so unfortunately NO COOKING facility apart from a normal microwave oven to heat up something quick that does not require cooking. * For safety reasons, we ask that you DO NOT bring your own pots/pans/ gas stoves or electric plates. * Large separate bathroom with shower, toilet and double basins. * The bathroom opens up to a private outdoor space and also serves as main entrance to the unit. * All bed linen, towels (including beach towels) and hairdryer provided. * There is also plenty of space for locked storage of your bikes and other sporting equipment. Please ask about this. * Portacot available on request. Please ask for the cot if you want it prepared ahead of your stay. * Off street parking for 1 car only.
    * Ideally located for athletes participating in or training for IRONMAN events and perfect for supporters as it's only 180m from the lakefront. * 180m from the lakefront and theTwo Mile Bay Cafe- the only cafe on the water in Taupo. Here you can relax on a bean bag with a coffee whilst the kids play around on the pontoon, enjoy a sundowner after a lakeside stroll, or enjoy a woodfired pizza in a lovely atmosphere. * 50 minute drive to Rotorua * 1.5 hours to the charming Art Deco city of Napier. * Just over an hour's drive to the Whakapapa ski field or the Tongariro Crossing, and another 30 minutes further on to the Turoa ski field. Don’t forget the daily shuttle service from Taupo centre right to the base of Whakapapa ski slopes- easy. * How about a High Tea at the Chateau Tongariro at Mount Ruapehu.
  • I had a great stay at Susan's place in Taupo

    Greg2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was an outstanding Air b n b. It was nice to be the guests instead of the hosts for a change. Susan and hubby are awesome hosts, very friendly, helpful and super generous. We were really happy with everything, the nice thoughtful touches, the treats, and extra gifts for Ron doing the iRONman. They checked in with us to check all was ok throughout our stay. They went above and beyond and everything we needed was supplied and then some. We have taken note of some things to add to our own air b n b. It’s no wonder these guys are super hosts! As it was a super experience. Kristine and Ron - IRONman completes his 33rd iRONman. Wahooo!

    Kristine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 10 out of 10! Would highly recommend Susan place! She is such a lovely host and offers great tips and tricks for around the area. Her hospitality was amazing and the place is cute, clean and just perfect. We stayed 1 night for our honeymoon and Susan made it feel like we were at a 5 star resort!

    Alex2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's place is really lovely, she has decorated it like a modern, stylish, comfortable home and she has thought of everything. We are a couple in our 60's and we appreciated all the extra touches that made Susan's space feel like a guest room, rather than a rental space. The space is like a self-contained apartment and the luxury of a private, scenic and comfortable outdoor space, was a wonderful surprise. We loved Taupo and we were sorry that we didn't have at least 1 more day to spend in this picturesque place.

    Shirley2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Excellent instructions. Very clear. Immaculate accommodation, very handy to bar/pizza restaurant boat club. Perfect place to listen to music, eat good food, good drinks and a view to die for. All round an outstanding stay. This will be our go-to stay in the future.

    Graham2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our host Susan could not have been better. C'est la vie was a little piece of paradise. Absolutely stunning apartment with everything you could need, the little touches did not go un noticed. Two minute walk from the lake and beautiful views we would definitely recommend and wished we could have stayed longer

    Clare2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • It's a lovely place to stay and Susan made us feel so welcome. I also enjoyed the cafe/bar on the lake which is about a 2 minute walk from the place.
