This was not only our favourite town this was by way our favourite accomodation in our trip to NZ. Beautiful large unit attached to house with views to die for. 5 mins by car to town centre. It had all required facilities with a big queen bed and large living area. Vicki is a terrific host and was contactable if required could not recommend this any more highly. Thank You Vicki

Vicki's place is amazing! It is the best AirBNB we have stayed at during our trip in NZ. It is set up perfectly, has everything you need and is in an amazing location. We really loved everything about this place. Thanks Vicki :-)

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.

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.
