I would try to write in brief about all the key elements: Arrival: The location was easy to find with helpful signage guiding us to the Chalet. As soon as we...

This was our second visit,the previous visit was at a different time of year and with different owners. Neven was an awesome host, friendly and chatty. The room was lovely,clean and well appointed- but the main thing that disappointed over the two days was the breakfast experience. Considering this is far from a budget category establishment, there wasn't a choice...

I would recommend everything about staying at Chalet Eiger in Taupo, NZ. We will back next time we are in NZ! House is set in a beautiful location with stunning views, food was amazing and Amos was an attentive host - we really enjoyed our dinner conversation and learnt so much about NZ and Japan along the way!

Kevin and Pon are incredible hosts. The homemade food was insanely delicious, the house was SPOTLESS and the grounds were beautiful. Me and my husband completely relaxed with our complimentary bold wine, comfortable balcony and jazz music playing all day long. They go the extra mile to take care of you. It's the only place to stay if you're in...

What an awesome place to stay, the view is breathtaking, the rooms are spacious and immaculately kept. Our room had a great balcony with table and chairs. Dinner and breakfast was outstanding.

A beautiful property set in the lovely Acacia Bay, with glimpses of the Lake, Chalet Eiger is the perfect peaceful hideaway from the stresses of everyday life. But what's really special about this place is the warm hospitality from the Amos family and the amazing Thai banquet that we had for dinner! The rooms are beautifully set out, with comfortable,...

We spent 2 nights here under the hospitality of Emil and Hea Min. It was wonderful. We are a couple in our 60s from Sydney, Australia. The room was sensational and we mastered the lighting pretty quickly! Lovely touches like home-baked biscuits, some delicious NZ cheese and a bottle of chilled wine were there for us. I loved the music...

Hea Min and Emil were superb hosts who went out of their way to make our visit relaxed and enjoyable. Our room was first class, and the Acacia Bay location was quiet and restful. Had a great evening with two other couples who were there and wound up exchanging details for further catch ups. Overall a strong recommend.
