Our guests say -
“We loved the extra touches (like the provision of muesli) and Dierdrei and Richard are so welcoming and readily share helpful information on what to do in the local area.”

“The place is easily accessible, stylish and a total treat for anyone staying in Taupo. Lots of thoughtful little touches made us feel special.”

“We enjoyed having our own space to just chill out and be able to cook for ourselves, watch a movie, read, and relax on a particularly rainy weekend when we couldn't be outside all the time. I stayed here with a friend and it was a perfect setup with the queen bed and the big comfy sofa bed.”

Guest access
Please feel welcome to enjoy our garden, help yourself to fruit and vegetables and if you are very lucky our three little araucana chickens may have laid some special blue eggs in time for your stay but there are no guarantees! Muesli & milk provided for breakfast.

We have a BBQ available for you to use in your courtyard, please let us know if you want it and we will have it all set up for you.

Other things to note
The cottage is separate from the main house, however you will find that we are still very close by if you should need our help with anything.

We have secure storage for your bikes, camping gear etc. should you need it in our padlocked garage.

The outdoor bath is in a shared space, it does have a screen but it is not entirely private. It would be a good idea to wear your swimsuit when using it!

Location

Taupo, Waikato, New Zealand

We live in a friendly, safe neighbourhood which is in walking distance to town and the lake so if you like, you can park up your car and not need to drive it again until you are going home. Our location is well connected to the myriad of shops, galleries and restaurants as well as the Lake Taupo water and boating activities, ski fields and mountain biking tracks.

The local croquet club is around the corner, as well as a very good playground. There is a local fish and chip shop in walking distance, and also a dairy around the corner, fruit and vegetable shop and butchers.

Richard and I have lived in Taupo for the past 12 years. I am an Irish-Kiwi and Richard is from England. We have 3 young children and feel like we are living in Paradise! We have both traveled extensively prior to settling down in Taupō and we love meeting new people, learning about new cultures and languages and foods from different countries. We have built a strong support network of friends here in Taupō, Richard loves his job with volcanoes and earthquakes so we will be settling here for the long haul. Richard is a keen mountain biker and enjoys playing the guitar, our children enjoy climbing trees, playing badminton & reading and I enjoy drinking tea and eating cake. We love the outdoors, socialising with friends, playing together, going to the beach and eating fish and chips, resting and relaxing. We are excited to host you on your holiday, business trip, sporting event or whatever reason you choose our space to stay.
