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.
Vicky is a very polite and gracious host. The place is just as advertised with beautiful view, well equipped house, and clean bed linens and towels. If anything the pictures and description doesnt do it justice. Would love to stay longer. Thank you for hosting us.
My stay was only for one night and I reached Taupo early evening. Vicki was welcoming and the apartment is wonderful, very comfortable and a great size. Wifi works well, treats in the fridge and milk for coffee. The view of the lake is sensational and directions to reach the apartment were clear and easy to follow. This is also great value for money. it is only a 5 minute drive out of town.
If you are wanting to stay in a hotel standard holiday apartment this is for you. Very clean and neat with WiFi, and most importantly Lake views of Taupo. Exactly as described.
This is indeed a gem overlooking the lake. We really enjoyed staying here and found it an excellent base for enjoying the Taupo area. It's in a very quiet location, yet handy enough to Taupo. Some nice decorative touches and supplies (milk, biscuits, tea, coffee) are very welcoming.
The accommodation is a downstairs 'granny flat' in a newish family home, and is very comfortable. There's a large lounge/dining/kitchen area with a jug, microwave, fridge and sink; separate bedroom with comfortable bed; separate bathroom with an excellent shower. The flat will be cool in summer and cozy in winter thanks to an effective heater. There's a small outdoor table too, with lake views.
Vicki was away when we stayed, but the arrangements worked seamlessly. Would use this property again if staying in the area.
Great, big appartment with garden access and lovely view to lake taupo. The own guest barbecue is great for outdoor-cooking. It looked even better as on the pictures;-) Vicky was a nice host. Thanks for the great stay!
As described. Lovely view of the lake and short drive to Taupo town centre. Enjoyed our stay, thank you.
The view to the taupo lake is beautiful. You can sit outside in the nice garden and the tui birds will sing for you :-) The rooms are very tastefully arranged, everything is clean and modern. Make sure to have a car, the next supermarket is about 5 km away. Therefore Acacia Bay is very pretty and silent. A stay at Vicky's is definitely recommended.

I am the department head at a Taupo secondary school - I teach English. I have four grown up children, we have 3 cats. My husband Michael and I like to spend time at the beach and on the lake fishing.
We enjoy having guests to stay but at the same time like to give you privacy.
