Our home is a spacious 5 bedroom family home with amazing views over open spaces towards the mighty Waikato River and Mt Tauhara.
We have two living areas, a large kitchen that you are free to use, and comfortable bedrooms. We are open to children staying, just let us know.
We have a laundry available for your use.
We also have chickens for fresh free range eggs!
Our gardens are being developed and maturing and ready to be enjoyed.
Heaps of off street parking.
Our home is full of books, games, wifi, music, piano and guitar if you would like to entertain us with your abilities.
We live in a comfortable part of town, all the homes around us are also on 2 acres, and one can easily walk to the CBD in about 15minutes, but takes a bit longer coming home as it is up hill!! There is no public transport, so a car would be necessary to enjoy Taupo.
I really loved staying here, Raewyn was a brilliant host. I had a really comfortable room and the house and property is just lovely. My stay there was a pleasure.
We enjoyed our stay with Raewyn. The location has a lovely view, is convenient to Taupo. Raewyn was helpful in suggesting sights to see in the area. We drove to Tongariro National Park in a little over an hour, lots to explore there even on a bad weather day. Also very close to the Rotorua sights which we saw on our way out. Breakfast was a nice spread of cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea. Our room space was nice and large, the bathroom adjoining large with a nice shower.
Simply amazing! Thanks so much dear Raewyn, Kevin an Claire for being the most humble and relaxing hosts one can imagine. I loved every single second I spent in/with your beautiful garden, house and family. Time to figure out how to do it all again next year :-) Sending you happy greetings! Celia
Thank you for this great stay! I felt very welcome and got a lot of directions like were to go and what to do during my stay. During breakfast you can enjoy a very lovely gardenview, and the house is nearby the city centre of Taupo. Perfect place to explore the central of the Northern Island! One of the best stays I had!
Raeeyn and her family were very accommodating and friendly! They welcomed us into their home. They went over and above our expectations. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. Thank you!
I have nothing but compliments for Raewyn and her household. They were thoroughly welcoming hosts. The house is large, modern and spacious with some surprisinly impressive views over the Taupo area. You feel like you're in a country house, even though the place is only 5 to 10 minutes drive from the middle of downtown Taupo. Would not hesitate to recommend it.
As my first experience of BnB it was really great. I found Raewyn so welcoming, the room and bed were lovely and comfortable. A really nice experience. Thank you.
What an absolutely wonderful place to stay! Raewyn and the Taylors are all absolutely fabulous and showed us impeccable hospitality, and we will be sure to stay with them in the future if we are in the Taupo area. One instance in particular that stands out to me was Kevin, Raewyn's husband, let me use his fly-fishing equipment so I would not have to rent my own. Upon our arrival I had mentioned that I was going to go out to do some fishing, and without hesitation Kevin asked if I wanted to borrow his equipment and immediately got it all out for me. Outside of the amazing hospitality, their home has gorgeous views of the surrounding area. So, if you find yourself anywhere near Taupo, stay with the Taylors. You won't regret it.
My first Air bnb experience was great. Pleasant, friendly host, comfortable home, great location and wonderful shower.
Thank you Raewyn
We only had the opportunity to spend one night with Raewyn and family, but it was an absolutely fantastic time. The house is a wonderful place, in a great neighbourhood with incredible views. Within a 5 minute drive are a host of attractions including Huka falls, and the Taupo CBD (check out Thai Delight for dinner).
More important than the house itself, was the was the wonderful hosting by Raewyn and her family. We felt welcomed, part of the family for a night, and they went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and to ensure us a great stay. Highly recommended!
