Interaction with Guests
Mostly we are at home in the house above the flat. We give guests absolute privacy, but at the same time love to chat about their travels and plans when we get a chance.
Our neighbourhood is well kept, with quiet streets. You can walk down to the lake in 5 minutes at the most, where there are some bush areas to walk through. There is a walk through native bush only 2 minutes away. Our house is 6 minutes drive from the centre of Taupo.
There is no public transport. Guests may park their cars inside our section, safely off the street.
No smoking inside, no pets.
Vicki was very kind to welcome us and showed us around! She also recommended us a nice place for dinner! Electric blanket, heaters were all ready for us!
Vicki is a considerate host. For example, she warmed the place in anticipation of our arrival on a cold winter day. Milk in the fridge, as well as tea and coffee supplies, were also a nice touch. She also respects the privacy of her guests, but was kind in meeting us when we first arrived to check if we had any questions etc.
The description of the accommodation is accurate. It is clean, well equipped and is a neat self contained apartment. There are beautiful views of the lake here, and it is only a short drive from Taupo.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Vicki's home.We were pleasantly surprised when on arrival the house was nicely warmed up and all rooms had a heating arrangement. Vicky was really caring and provided everything we needed for our stay including towels, cutlery and cups, teas and coffee, and even some milk for the tea :) The place was really clean and in a very neighbourhood; it took us less than 10 min to get to Taupo central.
We would definitely stay at Vicki's home next time when visiting Taupo :)
I only have compliments for Vicki and her home! The living area is kept pristine. If you are arriving in the winter as we did, don't worry, the heater warms the living area almost immediately. Vicki is beyond sweet and ensures that you feel comfortable and have everything you need. Her beautiful garden is well kept with luscious grass for a picnic and with an impressive view. We will be returning to Taupo and we would only stay with Vicki.
Vicki's house was beautiful and very comfortable. A beautiful view of the lake and very close to town but quiet and peaceful at night. I will definitely stay there again the next time we make a trip to Taupo.
Our stay in the beautiful Lake Taupo area was made even better with our stay at Vicki's property. An amazing space that was preheated for our arrival and the most ideal courtyard out the front overlooking the lake. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to stay here.
Excellent self contained apartment, all as described. Vicki welcomed us with communications up til arrival... had the heater warming the rooms for us.
