We are less than 1 kilometer from the lake ( an easy walk there but a hill to get home. Perfect for the electric bikes) We are a few steps away from the path into the Botanical gardens which has wonderful viewing seats to sit and admire the constantly changing vistas of lake and mountains.
We are 1.9 km to our famous Two-mile Yacht club which serves the best pizzas and cold beers in summer along with hiring paddle-boards, kayaks, and sailing boats. They have live music Fridays and Sundays and in winter they have roaring fires and warming red wines to sip away the hours and watch the sunset.
We are 1.3 km from De Brett's thermal park with a range of heated pools and a day spa.
We have two top restaurants within a kilometer and another 3 within 2km. We are 4km to the Taupo town center and 5.9 km to Taupo airport.
We have a superette and takeaway less than a km away.

We are a fun loving , action family who love adventure, good food and trying new things. We live in the best place in the world , fabulous cycling ( both paved scenic lanes around the lake and mountain biking at Craters , K2K, W2K) , sailing, skiing, natural thermal hot pools, crystal clean swimming and a vibrant, friendly community. I enjoy recommending all the local great spots to my guests and seeing people enjoying our magical town.

During your stay
I can generally be around to meet you if needed and give you some local knowledge about Taupo but as the entrance is separate I can leave you to settle in privately if you wish.
