Guest access
Apartment is totally private with our house on one side and an empty grassed section on the other. Own driveway with parking for 2 cars. We are pet friendly but just bare in mind the front of the section is not fenced. This borders bush then a public walking track beside the lake. Plenty of lawn space to spread out in the warmer months. We will be there to greet guests where possible otherwise keys will be in a lockbox with code .

Please note we have a cat and dog on our property. Forest the cat will come over from time to time . Molly our schnauzer will bark on arrival but she is harmless. The main town is a 7min drive away or a $20 taxi ride.

Location

Taupo, Waikato, New Zealand

Acacia Bay is an attractive residential area about 7 mins drive from Taupo CBD. We have a bar/brassiere within walking distance of 10 mins. They do wood fired pizzas sit-down and takeaway plus a full restaurant menu. There is a convenience store next to that as well. There are tennis courts(gold coin donation) close by so we have racquets if you wish to play. 2 kms up the road is L'Arte a lovely cafe and mosaic art studio. Acacia Bay offers beautiful swimming areas, bush walks and bike rides at our doorstep. We have a standup paddle board you are welcome to use and mountain bikes. Take a kayak ride around to the carvings at Mine Bay. We have 2 kayaks on the property for your use.
Taupo is in the centre of the North Island so makes it a great base for day trips to places like Waitomo Caves, Hobbiton, Rotorua Cultural centres, Napier and Tongariro National Park.

I currently live in Taupo, NZ and work part-time in the office of our Log Transport Company. I enjoy playing tennis, walking , mountain biking and yoga. My husband and I love travelling. Our daughters have been living in Australia for years which has meant a lot of time spent there but now they have returned to Taupo with husbands and children so it’s lovely to have them back here. We have lived here in Taupo all our lives so are very familiar with this beautiful town and it's surrounding areas. We have had wonderful experiences staying in airbnb's overseas that we decided to try our hands at being a host. Love meeting new people.
