Fiona welcomed us to her great garden studio. This studio is conveniently located to the beautiful lake Taupo . Fiona kindly left eggs for our breakfast which were a treat. Having a washing machine was a bonus so that we could wash a few cloths. This is a very beautiful part of NZ

Fiona's place was great just like the photos and close to town where there were lots of great restaurants and cafes. Rufus the cat was also very friendly and stayed on front porch for most of the night. The only downside was that there were quite a few bugs however it is in a garden so it's kind of expected.

We loved our stay at the Plum Tree Studio . Fiona welcomed us and gave us tips for our stay. The studio was a lovely space to stay in, with many extras left to make us more than comfortable. Our first Air BnB stay that certainly encourages us to book more throughout New Zealand. Thank you Fiona and Andrew

Fiona and Andrew were great communicators and their place is amazing! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we loved meeting their cats too. We will never forget our Taupo trip and highly recommend this listing and all of the treasures around the lake. Thank you again to our amazing hosts, we can't wait to return!

Fiona was a great host. Her studio was comfortably appointed with all the mod cons we needed for our stay and all within a short distance to the main centre of town.
