A well-taken-care-of Garden, nice living room, many books to read if you fancy a quiet time indoor. Elizabeth, Paul and Saxon is more than hosts for us. We had good laughs, good fun and good conversation. Breakfast... More

The surrounding gardens are beautiful and are a lovely place to either sit and ponder or enjoy an evening beverage. Just a stones throw away from the beach and... More

Great accommodation with great hosts. Beautiful surroundings and great location to some of NZ's fantastic golf courses. Easy reach to Taupo and nice to sit in the garden with a drink after a long day walking, riding, golfing or sightseeing. Beds are really comfy as well as plenty of room to relax. I really recommend to try this place out... More

Really enjoyed our visit. Elizabeth and Paul could not have been more welcoming. Lovely room, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Afternoon tea and breakfast very good. Lovely walk by the lake. Dinner in bistro in village very good. Chef offered three veggie options even though there were none on the menu. Very good wine. Much better than staying in Taupo.

While Eliza and Paul we nice, out first night dinner with them for $65NZ per person was a real ripoff - eat elsewhere! We should have inquired the menu but expected better value. Small salad, tiny piece of salmon with a few veggies and a bit of cobbler, served in the kitchen, no view except of the appliances. Wine was... More
