About this listing
Private and quiet, set in lovely gardens, 5 minute walk to lake, parking on site, a 6 minute drive to town and all Taupo has to offer! Flat is cool in summer and warm in winter with gas heater. There is a BBQ, small 'ToastandRoast' oven and microwave available for cooking, and the flat has an ironing board, iron and hair blow drier.
The flat is comfortable and well-appointed with its own outside access and lockable door. You can sit outside and enjoy the birdsong in the surrounding bush, or the views of Lake Taupo.
Guests may access wireless Internet in the flat now that we have installed a stronger wifi signal! They can use our washing machine if needed.
Guests may relax in the garden.
Interaction with guests
Mostly we are at home in the house above the flat. We give guests absolute privacy, but at the same time love to chat about their travels and plans when we get a chance.
Our neighbourhood is well kept, with quiet streets. You can walk down to the lake in 5 minutes at the most, where there are some bush areas to walk through. There is a walk through native bush only 2 minutes away. Our house is 6 minutes drive from the centre of Taupo.
There is no public transport. Guests may park their cars inside our section, safely off the street.
No smoking inside, no pets.
Please arrive before 8.30pm unless prior arrangement is made.
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.
