One bedroom situated in our own home with your own bathroom. Double bed with electric blanket. Our home has Wi FI and off street parking. It is a standard house, nothing fancy, but you will be warm and comfortable.
Situated 4.5km from centre of town where you can find many cafes/ restaurants and supermarkets. Something for everyone.
A very short walk from our house is a four square and takeaway shops for your convenience.
It is a very safe, generally quiet neighbourhood.
The price is $69 USD per night. The website is showing a wrong price sometimes for some reason I cannot fathom.
You are very welcome to make use of our kitchen and laundry while you are staying with us. We would love for you to make yourself at home.
You are very welcome to either keep to yourself or join us as a family. Whatever makes you comfortable is fine with us.
It is very much a family type neighborhood which is safe and quiet most of the time. We live in a cul-de-sac street so therefore no through traffic.
It is helpful to have your own vehicle and we are a good 35min walk from centre of town and the bus timetable is sporadic.
Quite spontaniously, we decided to make a two day stop-over in Taupo. With Carla and her family we found a nice, cosy spot to stay with. Everybody of the 4 was so friedliy and It felt like beeing with a Part if your family.
We had our own little room with own bathroom on the groundlevel, where it is not far to the kitchen and just in front of the House, we had the opportunity of off-road-parking. Just Perfect.
We had a very nice time staying with Carla and her family. The room was lovely and we received very good local knowledge about Taupo and the Tongariro national park. The breakfast was very substantial which was good for our hike in Tongariro the next day.
Carla and Malcolm have the coziest most welcoming home. They really wanted us to enjoy Taupo and helped us in every way. Breakfast was a delight. Great hosts.
A very comfortable and pleasant room with every facility for our short stay. We were made to feel very welcome by Carla and Malcolm who were also helpful in suggesting an inexpensive place to eat, with delicious food, and places to swim. Easy to find and within ten minutes from their house you could be swimming in Lake Taupo.!
Nuit très agréable, tout le confort nécessaire à disposition, petit déjeuner excellent Carla est au petits soins pour ses hôtes. Bref à recommander sans hésitations!
We had a wonderful stay with Carla and her family. Their house was clean and neat, the room and bed very comfortable. I can only recommend staying here as you will be provided with a warm welcome, tips for trips/walks, towels, great breakfast (including vitamins and minerals on one spoon per day if you like) and a homely atmosphere. :)
Carla was a very good host. She made us feel comfortable in every way and served us a yummy breakfast in the morning.
The room was clean and cozy and so was the bathroom. We have had everything we needed for a perfect stay.
Thank you Carla for hosting us!
Carla and Malcom were great host, we experienced a very warm family and many good tips driving around New Zealand. Their place was very central and close to Taupo Lake. We had many good interchanging conversations as we had the same interests. We enjoyed staying with them.
Carla and her two boys made us feel very welcome on our arrival. Carla made sure we were comfortable in every way and the bed was likewise. Carla made our favourite breakfast dish of home made porridge. She helped us with queries about the local area as well as a suggested onward route.
Staying with Carla and her family was like going back home. Her family were all really kind and welcoming. We had a nice, warm, and very cozy room with everything we needed provided. Malcolm and Carla were even kind enough to provide us with delicious breakfasts in the morning. They had a great location right near the highways and downtown, which was great since we were renting a car. I'm definitely hoping to go back and see the Crowes and finally climb the Tangariro.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
