Other things to note
Our only real rule is there is absolutely no smoking on or in the property please. If you are a smoker please do not dispose of your cigarette buts in the rubbish here so as to keep our studio smelling as fresh as possible thank you
Your host is Craig,
I live here with my two children Lukas and Tessa who you may see from time to time during your stay. We are a fairly quiet family.
Your studio is under the main house so there will be some noise transfer but we do our best keep it to a minimum.
If you are into pets we do have hens and two small French bulldogs who live out the back of the property. They are very friendly and and will love you to bits if you say hi, they are well away from your studio so will be no bother if that is a concern.
If you wish to use the laundry I will show you where that is and move the dogs inside for you.
The home exterior still looks very tired and run down because she was an old house in need of some love andcare but is slowly finding her new self as I renovate.
You can park in the drive way or on the grass verge out the front. Which is standard Taupo practice. I will usually be parked on the grass so that you can have the off street park.
Access is down the right hand side of the house when looking from the roadside.
I look forward to having you stay!

I am a full time solo dad to my two fantastic kids. We moved to Taupo in 2017 I was originally from the bay of plenty, Tauranga way where my parents were dairy farmers. I have moved around parts of our stunning country over the years and am now here. I am a carpenter and do renovations on homes. I like to road trip and explore around our stunning country and the world
