A beautiful spot, nice and quiet for any light sleepers out there. Comfortable and warm, especially as the days are getting cooler.

Vicki was a very obliging host who went out of her way to accept and prepare for our stay. The location is breath taking with stunning views of the lake from the garden terrace. The apartment is very clean and spacious and private with a huge living area, well appointed bathroon and very cosy comfortable bed. The kitchen facilities were perfect for making snacks and breakfast. A short 5 minute drive to the great Taupo CBD and shops and a good bar/restaurant just two minutes drive. A perfect place to stay, stunning location and very discreet host. Thoroughly recommend Vicki's apartment and her hospitality.

Vicki's place is wonderful. Really spacious and the view is amazing! Vicki gave us great directions to get to the flat and we felt right at home during our stay.

Vicki's apartment was large and had more than enough space for 2 persons. The location was secluded and not too far from city central. Enjoyed our 2 nights stay. Recommended for couple.

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.
