Vicki's place was very nice, warm and cozy. It had everything 2 people would need for a night. Vicki was nice enough to greet us before checking in and showed us around. The place was very tidy and well decorated, and she even had a few treats for us at the dining table. Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends!

Vicki's place was wonderful. I felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. Everything is so lovely and comfortable and we had everything we needed to feel at home. The view is also spectacular! Close to a nice walk along the lake and easy access to town. Vicki is also a great host and easy to talk to. I hope we have a chance to stay there again someday!

My husband and I stay at Vicki's place for 1 night. Vicki is a thoughtful host. When we arrived, the unit was already warmed up. We really enjoyed our short stay at her place.

I am the department head at a Taupo secondary school - I teach English. I have four grown up children, we have 3 cats. My husband Michael and I like to spend time at the beach and on the lake fishing.
We enjoy having guests to stay but at the same time like to give you privacy.
