Richard built this home himself! Lush and expansive gardens, a sustainable water and heating system, and several patios and hidden outdoor nooks were all a part of his plan. Lyn's five star hospitality included a hot cup of tea and homemade fruitcake upon arrival, among many other special touches. Tucked away ten minutes from the town of Taupo, this B&B is a perfect location to wake up in luxury and head out for day trips throughout the North Island. Don't forget to soak in the spa beneath the stars after a day of adventuring! Taupo has plenty to offer, and Richard and Lyn are pros about every kind of activity in the area. Thank you so much for such a warm Kiwi welcome. Highly, highly recommend.
