House - Entire home/apt · Gillies Avenue, Taupo, Waikato 3330, New Zealand

The Space

Welcome to my gorgeous french style cottage with lake views and front deck....

Situated in a great area of central Taupo, just a short walk to the lake front and 15 minutes walk to the town centre, this French Style Cottage is the perfect place to stay for your next getaway.

The cottage consists of 2 bedrooms (one with double bed, one with single) and there is also a sofa bed in the living room if required.

High quality linen is used on the beds and towels are provided. Eco friendly cleaning products are also used.

If you are arriving by car, there is ample off street parking available.

The cottage is situated in a quiet residential street but close enough to everything that is required. The closest large supermarket is a 20 minute walk, there is a smaller superette, fabulous cafe, fruit and veg shop, and butcher a mere 10 minutes walk away.

Taupo is an incredible place to explore - kayaking, boating, the mountains, cafes. restaurants, the lake and surrounding rivers, amazing bush walks and mountain bike tracks. It is also the most beautiful place just to chill and absorb the incredible surroundings.

As a host I can leave you to be completely independent or help you with what you require be it a massage therapist, a private yoga class, organic healthy food, or just recommendations as to what there is available in our beautiful town.

Quiet, simple, relaxing, healing, and gentle on the soul, the cottage has a beautiful energy. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay in Jo's cottage in Taupo - it is just as pretty as the photos with a lovely deck looking out over the (website hidden) was extremely hospitable and gave us the best chocolate banana brownies we have ever eaten! Nothing was too much trouble and she even lent us cold weather walking gear for our anticipated Tongariro crossing walk. The location is good with a short walk into town. We would highly recommend this stay.

    We particularly enjoyed sitting on the veranda in the late afternoon sun with the view of the (website hidden) was a pleasure to deal with :)

  • A truly sweet cottage to (website hidden) makes sure you have everything you need to feel at home and simply couldn't be more welcoming.

    The verandah is a fantastic place to enjoy the sun set over the lake. We just loved it and plan to return

  • Thanks Jo! It was great meeting you and your wonderful family. The cottage is a great place to stay for a couple or small family. It is only a few blocks from the lake and main shopping square, but far enough to feel very secluded. The cottage was perfect for my race and base camp for all of our excursions.
    Again, thanks for your hospitality and keep at Glen for meeting up for a race :)

  • We had such a great time staying in Jo's lovely French Cottage. It's beautifully decorated, comfortable, light and sunny - the perfect place to relax for a few days and enjoy the beautiful Taupo area. The bread, butter, milk and fruit were a nice extra as well. Thanks Jo :)

  • The cottage was (website hidden) was super helpful and gave us great communication for our first time using Air BnB. We collected the keys in person and dropped them off early into their postbox which is just around the corner. The cottage is in a great location; just a short walk to the Lake and local restaurants. The interior is stunning. Great character. Comfortable bed. Couldn't ask for more!

  • As three girls in our early-30s from Aus, we chose this sweet French cottage with lake Taupo views and close to town.
    Driving up to the cottage we were hoping it was that one! ...and it was. We were blown away with how perfect it was for our three night stay... So relaxing, so pretty and very inspiring.
    Think breakfast on the sunny deck over looking the lake with the scent of the lavender bushes breezing (website hidden) made our stay special (being the lovely lady she is) with bread butter and milk in the fridge and some great tips on what to do while there, but mainly some lovely chats!
    We didn't want to leave and hope to be back again soon.
    Thanks again Jo!

Nutritionist and Photographer
Hi, I live in Taupo and enjoy the amazing outdoors that we have on our doorstep here. I work as a Nutritionist and a Photographer so am interested in health and wellbeing and looking after our planet and capturing the the beauty of our surroundings. I enjoy all things french, love France, and speak french. I can't live without my family, my close friends, good coffee, my camera, time by the ocean, books, healthy home grown veges and organic food, and laughter. I really like to live by the motto that I have borrowed from Ellen Degeneres "be kind to one another."
