Cozy little place, nice and clean. Host made some good restaurant recommendations and even provided a coupon for coffee at local place. A bit away from the city center, so not handy without a car, and best with a small car—our Holden Commodore was a tight fit! Side note, WiFi a bit slow.

This adorable studio was the perfect spot for us (3 ladies) to crash while on our road trip down NZ. It was very clean and quite spacious for a studio. I personally slept in the hammock, which was fantastic and way more comfy than you'd think. We would definitely recommend this spot to friends and family going through the area.

We had a great stay here in Taupo! Everything very clean. Hammock was great-my husband layed there with ice on his knee after hiking the Tongiriro! Washer and kitchen supplies were handy. Comfy bed and great espresso provided. Host also provided a gift certificate for free tea/coffee to a local coffee house that we stopped at on our way out of town. Would also recommend Pauley's Diner in town. Great place to stay!

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!

Plum tree is probably my favorite stay so far with Air BnB. The location was wonderful, the place was clean and well-organized. Fiona met us as we arrived, and was very pleasant and amenable. 10/10 would recommend to stay here!

The Plum Tree Studio is gorgeous; we were so comfortable and cozy! It was a cold night, but the heaters and the heating blanket kept us nice and toasty. We also really enjoyed the hammock and would now like to install one in our own home! Thank you for the wonderful stay, Fiona and Andrew!
