Kinara Homestay was our first stop after Auckland in our month in NZ. What a wonderful home Heather has made. We stayed here for 3 days as a base for our visit to the Taupo/Rotorua area. After visiting Rotorua, we were so glad that we had chosen Taupo, and especially Kinara in which to stay. The rooms are very comfortable...

Heather & Graeme were very welcoming and flexible about our stay. My suitcase had been lost and Heather was very helpful in assisting us in any way she could to locate it. The lovely robes in the room were such a welcome, especially due to my missing luggage! The room accommodations were lovely and the grounds were beautiful. It is...

We spent two days here and it was one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed at, it made you want to stay longer and just hang out in the house and the patio area. The yard was so beautiful and well maintained. The towels and bed were of the finest quality. Heather makes a great banana bread...

They have a beautiful garden and good-furniture accommodation. Heather’s delicious breakfast brighten up our each day in Taupo.

We stayed at Kinara in February 2012 and we absolutely loved it. Graeme and Heather are very welcoming hosts and they have a beautiful home. The property is so handy for all the attractions in Taupo and also Rotorua as some of them are half way between the towns. We found it so much better to stay in Taupo at...

After searching and searching for places to stay in Taupo we lucked out and chose Kinara! My husband and I are sure glad we did. Heather and Graeme made our short time together a very memorable one. They went out of their way to accommodate us and make arrangements for the hike we almost didn't get to do! Their home...

A friend and I stayed at Kinara Country Homestay for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our short stay. Right from the start Heather and Graeme were very welcoming. Their friendliness and willingness to make our stay comfortable was overwhelming. Their home is spacious and inquisitively decorated (the kitchen is to die for!!). They are knowledgeable about the...
