What a lovely, warming welcome by Gail and Robert, just what you need when you are tried from travelling most of the day. They could not be more friendly and helpful, from offering a glass of wine when we had settled in, to recommending places to eat and see in the area. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, particularly enjoyed the...

Thank you Fiona & Tim for taking time out of you holiday to write this review. The rain continued to pour down after you left yesterday but today the sun has come out and it has warmed up considerably.

This property is about 10 minutes drive from Taupo and has a mountain rather than a lake view. Our host Gail was busy with some redecorations when we arrived, but she quickly got into stride and settled us into our room. The bedroom had a nice garden view and was clean and well appointed. We enjoyed a stroll in the...

Gail and Robert were very welcoming, showed us to a huge and beautifully appointed room then gave us wine on the deck in the sunshine. We immediately felt at home, and the creature comforts they provided were excellent.

Robert & Gail would love to welcome you to your "Luxury home when you are away from Home." You will arrive as guests and leave as friends having enjoyed being thoroughly spoiled from the moment you arrive. Stay as long as you can - Taupo has so much to offer you, and we are so close to other cities such as Rotorua and the Hawke's Bay - so unpack your bags for a few days and relax and really enjoy New Zealand at its best. Our suites are luxuriously appointed and all are en-suite and have deck access. Join us in the evening for a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink before you head into town for dinner (we will even drive you in). Alternatively, and by prior arrangement, we can prepare you a supper, one or 2 course dinner, platter or special occasion dinner. Welcome to New Zealand,have a great holiday in paradise. ... more   less
