  • I'd traveled to Taupo for the Ironman race and really needed a clean, quiet, quality space. I could not have had a better experience! Communication was fast. The space is well located in a beautiful neighborhood (even right off the run course lucky me!). Upon entering it smells nice and fresh, everything spotless. Very predictable in regards to the advertisement. The hosts are super kind and overall value very good. I feel very grateful to have chosen this place, they helped make this crucial time as pleasant for me as possible! I highly recommend.

    Being experienced hospitality professionals, our idea of "looking after guests" goes miles beyond merely providing a comfortable bed and a Do-It-Yourself breakfast. So we happily take care of all the little details which we know will ultimately result in every guest enjoying their best stay ever. “Giday mate.” And “Namaste.” Welcome to our quintessential Indo-Kiwi home featuring Trevor as your super-friendly host, Tina as your ever-attentive hostess and Zoe, the rescued dogsbody, as herself. :-)
    We are hard-core foodies who love socializing so we designed our ultra-modern, newly built home to seamlessly cater to our twin passion: entertaining guests and cooking, Trevor being a qualified chef and Tina, an experienced home cook. We don't have any furniture suitable for infants or very young children and also have no child-proofing on electrical sockets and cupboards located close to the floor so we regret that we cannot host families with babies. However, we would love to welcome children above the age of 7 as long as their parents are 100% sure that the children will treat our home and its contents with respect and not cause any damages, and the parents accept full responsibility for their actions and are able to supervise them at all times. Please note we cannot allow a child to share the bed with both parents in one room, you have to also book our other bedroom (IF available at the time of your reservation). The guest wing has two separate bedrooms for a total of 4 guests with a bathroom and a separate toilet which all guests share (whenever both rooms are booked at the same time). Guests also have access to a small lounge with a sofa and heaps of books. The two guest bedrooms reflect our two unique and diverse cultures: so the “All Black Sheep” room is distinctly Kiwi–style and the “Holy Cow” room is very Indian-themed. Our two rooms are listed separately / individually on Air B n B. The listing you are currently looking at is for guests who wish to book the Indian Room. To see the listing for the Kiwi Room please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/29911611 Or if you wish to book both rooms together (if you are a family of 3 or 4 members or friends travelling as a group) please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/30115784 Our large open plan kitchen, dining and living room with the patio and outdoor seating is the focal point of the house and you are welcome to join us there for food, drinks and conversation. Our home is in a quiet cul-de-sac and very peaceful... to ensure that our guests are guaranteed a sound night's sleep, in addition to our new and Queen-sized beds, we provide you with three different thicknesses of pillows, a pedestal fan, cool cotton bed linen and light-weight blankets during summer and electric blankets, cold-weather duvets, additional blankets and wall-mounted room heaters in winter. Awaiting you on the dining table in the morning will be our humble “welcome home” gift of delicious and super-healthy, three-layer breakfast-in-a-bowl that our guests rave about in their reviews: a base made with home-made meusli / granola full of dry fruits and nuts mixed with toasted jumbo rolled oats, freshly-made frozen fruit smoothie and a final topping of a dollop of yoghurt and a selection of fresh cut fruits (Check out the photos). We also happily cater to those wanting a simple / light breakfast featuring toast with your choice of spread.....butter, marmalade, jam, peanut butter, Marmite and Vegemite. Long story short, we do bed and breakfast, both. Exceedingly well. But wait! There's so much more.... - Two FREE kayaks + 2 paddles + 2 life jackets + a car roof rack for transporting the kayaks from our home to the lake that guests can borrow during their stay with us - Delicious, wholesome, unpretentious dinner ($25 per person) : your choice of European-Kiwi food (made by Trevor who is a qualified and experienced chef) or an Indian meal (lovingly prepared by Tina, a seasoned home cook :-) - Organic and home-grown fruits, veggies and herbs (check out the photos) - Filtered, fluoride-free, drinking water - Free tea and coffee (Green tea / Herbal Tea / English Breakfast) with a choice of organic non-homogenised A2 cow's milk or organic rice milk - Choice of beverages apart from tea & coffee: coconut water or home-made water kefir - Easy & safe parking in our driveway - Fully tiled spacious bathroom with enclosed shower & washbasin stocked with good quality hand wash, face wipes, shampoo, soap, hair dryer and even an electric foot spa to soak and massage your tired feet - Wardrobe with hangers and plenty of storage space in guest bedrooms along with an Ironing board and steam iron in each - Shiatsu massager for the neck and shoulders (a favourite among those who have driven long distances) - Free wifi / Free pick up from downtown for single travellers using public transport We honestly believe that every stranger is a friend we haven't met yet, and this is the ethos behind our hosting style. So if there is any other information you need, please send us a message and we’ll get back to you quickly....just like a caring friend would.
    Our house is on the way to Taupo airport and is located about 5 kilometers from the town centre. There is a walkway & bike trail through a couple of underpasses close to our home…the walk takes just 8 minutes. From there you can walk or bike in either direction: away from or towards town......a fine example of our "Tranquil Taupo". A drive to the town centre will take no more than 5 minutes and all types of shops catering to anything you might possibly want are located here, including a couple of supermarkets.
  • Tina and Trevor are great hosts and their cooking is great, just as their hospitality and their dog Zoe. We had a great stay and recommend it!

    Sofi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Trevor and Tina‘s place is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend it. We arrived as strangers and feel like we left as friends. We stayed for two nights and took advantage of their home cooking having an Indian meal on the first night and a Kiwi meal the second night. The food was absolutely outstanding, the conversation was brilliant and hilarious. There was another couple staying there and we all had so much fun. Tinas breakfast bowls are not to be missed! Their home is large, open and spotless. The bed was very comfortable and sharing the bathroom was very easy with the other guests who occupied the second bedroom. It is all made easier by the fact that the toilet and sink are in one room and the shower room is separate. Tina and Trevor are the most welcoming hosts you could ever hope to meet. Their dog Zoey is quite delightful and unbelievably pampered. She is a very docile good dog who really just keeps to her self unless you choose to engage with her. I could go on but will end by saying that we do hope to return one day.

    Corinne2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot only 5-7 mins from town. Very modern space, clean and comfy. The dinner that was made for us was truly delicious, so nice to have a home cooked meal after some time eating out. Thanks again for having us 😁

    Tessa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Trevor were fabulous hosts, their house is beautiful, clean and new and it was a delight to be able to stay with them. Perfect location close to the lake. Lovely breakfast which set us up for the day ahead and genuinely lovely people to be around. Great wifi. Very helpful with tips for travelling around Taupo and the rest of New Zealand.

    Hayley2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying here very much. This town has so much natural beauty, and Trev and Tina help to seek it out. The accomodation is 5 star. A lovely home with all the trimmings makes it a perfect place to stay.

    Wake up to a beautiful lake view, or sit back and take it in while firing up the BBQ on the deck in the evenings! If you're looking for the perfect spot to relax and unwind, look no further.. This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is just a short 2 - 3 minute walk to the lake, and only a 5 minute drive from town centre. The huge back yard with trampoline will be popular among the younger members of the family.
    Well-equipped , modern and spacious - there is room for the whole family to relax and unwind. Upstairs consists of the main living, kitchen and dining areas, sun-deck overlooking the lake, plus 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The downstairs floor has one large bedroom, plus one bathroom. Each bathroom has it's own bath. Pet-friendly BY ARRANGEMENT ONLY - (no inside pets) please enquire before you book so that we can talk to you about this. The huge back yard is somewhat fully fenced - although the fence is not very high, and there are some small gaps in the wire fencing that a small dog would be able to get through. Children are welcome, however you may wish to bring stair gates.

Check out our Instagram #kowhaistudiotaupo. Lots of photos from our local adventures.
    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 4km to the Taupo town center and 5.9 km to Taupo airport. We have a superette and takeaway less than a km away.

  • Kirsten was so kind and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much. The place was private and quiet and we loved all the windows and the air conditioning, which allowed us to dry out some of our wet items from a rainy day. The location was perfect and we wish we could have stayed longer.

The E bikes were great especially for the return uphill journey. Lots to do in the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying here, great huge comfy bed and brilliant shower.

    Jan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely gorgeous space with loads of thoughtful touches. Kirstin was really good with her communication and in answering our questions. Shame we were only staying for one night!

    Jon2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Kirstin's place was one of our favorite places to stay during our honeymoon in New Zealand! It was in a great location close to town. It had air conditioning which was amazing since we were there during the summer. The space was spotless with everything you could need for a great stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Bowood House itself has character and charm being an ideal place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Also suitable for self catering. En-suite facilities.
    The Studio at Bowood House has just been converted to a stylish contemporary apartment. It provides all of the comforts required for a wonderful stay including quality linen, and air conditioning.

Elle popped in for a visit and was very reasonable/understanding. The best place to spend a weekend down by the lake or in the back garden with family and friends. Would recommend for any occasion!

Heather gives you a lot of privacy, but is immediately available for all matters and information. If we hadn't already booked an activity, we would certainly have stayed one more night! Definitely book if you are looking for something in Taupo !!

    Zach2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Just a short walk down to the waterfront, Selena's place had everything we needed for a short stay. The place was clean and had nice little design touches. The AC also came in handy as it does get quite warm during the day, but cools off at night so you get a good breeze. A quick drive along the waterfront takes you to lots of shops and restaurants - highly recommend The Storehouse for coffee, breakfast, or lunch.

Only a minutes stroll down to the lakefront on the IM run course and as it states in the name, just a brisk Two Mile walk into Taupo town centre. Free unlimited WIFI and Netflix.
    * Private and comfortable for 2-4 people. * The unit is probably most suited for a maximum of 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children. * The initial rate is based on 2 people sharing the king bed. If the booking is made for 2 people, we assume 2 guests are sharing. * There is an extra charge for more than 2 people or 2 single people wanting separate rooms. * If you are 2 single people but wanting separate rooms, please make the booking for 3 people so that the required beds are prepared ahead of your stay. * If you are 3 people and all three want separate beds, please make the booking for 4 people so that all the beds are prepared ahead of your stay. * The unit consists of 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchenette with parking for only one car right in front of the unit. * The 2 private outdoor spaces where you can relax, make up for the absence of an indoor living room. * Two super comfortable bedrooms with freshly ironed linen. Bedroom 1 has a super king bed and the second bedroom has a trundler that can be converted into 2 singles beds. * The studio has a kitchenette equipped with microwave, bar fridge, dinnerware, toaster, kettle. * Coffee, tea, milk, hot chocolate etc. * There is NO stove so unfortunately NO COOKING facility apart from a normal microwave oven to heat up something quick that does not require cooking. * For safety reasons, we ask that you DO NOT bring your own pots/pans/ gas stoves or electric plates. * Large separate bathroom with shower, toilet and double basins. * The bathroom opens up to a private outdoor space and also serves as main entrance to the unit. * All bed linen, towels (including beach towels) and hairdryer provided. * There is also plenty of space for locked storage of your bikes and other sporting equipment. Please ask about this. * Portacot available on request. Please ask for the cot if you want it prepared ahead of your stay. * Off street parking for 1 car only.
    * Ideally located for athletes participating in or training for IRONMAN events and perfect for supporters as it's only 180m from the lakefront. * 180m from the lakefront and theTwo Mile Bay Cafe- the only cafe on the water in Taupo. Here you can relax on a bean bag with a coffee whilst the kids play around on the pontoon, enjoy a sundowner after a lakeside stroll, or enjoy a woodfired pizza in a lovely atmosphere. * 50 minute drive to Rotorua * 1.5 hours to the charming Art Deco city of Napier. * Just over an hour's drive to the Whakapapa ski field or the Tongariro Crossing, and another 30 minutes further on to the Turoa ski field. Don’t forget the daily shuttle service from Taupo centre right to the base of Whakapapa ski slopes- easy. * How about a High Tea at the Chateau Tongariro at Mount Ruapehu.
  • I had a great stay at Susan's place in Taupo

    Greg2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was an outstanding Air b n b. It was nice to be the guests instead of the hosts for a change. Susan and hubby are awesome hosts, very friendly, helpful and super generous. We were really happy with everything, the nice thoughtful touches, the treats, and extra gifts for Ron doing the iRONman. They checked in with us to check all was ok throughout our stay. They went above and beyond and everything we needed was supplied and then some. We have taken note of some things to add to our own air b n b. It’s no wonder these guys are super hosts! As it was a super experience. Kristine and Ron - IRONman completes his 33rd iRONman. Wahooo!

    Kristine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 10 out of 10! Would highly recommend Susan place! She is such a lovely host and offers great tips and tricks for around the area. Her hospitality was amazing and the place is cute, clean and just perfect. We stayed 1 night for our honeymoon and Susan made it feel like we were at a 5 star resort!

    Alex2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's place is really lovely, she has decorated it like a modern, stylish, comfortable home and she has thought of everything. We are a couple in our 60's and we appreciated all the extra touches that made Susan's space feel like a guest room, rather than a rental space. The space is like a self-contained apartment and the luxury of a private, scenic and comfortable outdoor space, was a wonderful surprise. We loved Taupo and we were sorry that we didn't have at least 1 more day to spend in this picturesque place.

    Shirley2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Excellent instructions. Very clear. Immaculate accommodation, very handy to bar/pizza restaurant boat club. Perfect place to listen to music, eat good food, good drinks and a view to die for. All round an outstanding stay. This will be our go-to stay in the future.

    Graham2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our host Susan could not have been better. C'est la vie was a little piece of paradise. Absolutely stunning apartment with everything you could need, the little touches did not go un noticed.

    Newly built, custom-designed, eco-friendly, tiny house nestled among kowhai, plum, maple & feijoa trees on one of Taupō's township's largest sections (Richmond Heights suburb - 6 minute drive to CBD). Interior design is Scandinavian - light and airy. Double-glazing, insulation & heat pump will keep you toasty warm in winter & cool in summer. Screens (unusual in Aotearoa) allow you to catch an evening breeze without uninvited insects/mammals sneaking in!
    A tiny house, Kōwhai Korner is ideal for single or duo travelers with queen bed in loft but can also accommodate families or small groups with additional bed(s) of your choice - queen or single air mattress, porta-cot, etc. We recommend viewing listing photos and accompanying descriptions, which accurately portray the space, before booking. We designed and build our tiny house as a te whare āio – a peaceful, calm, restorative place for visiting whānau (family) and friends. Located down a shared drive atop a quiet cul-de-sac, Kowhai Korner provide guests with the opportunity to wake up to tuis while still having easy access to the Botanical Gardens (5 minute walk), lake (15 minute walk/2 minute drive) and the CBD (45 minute walk/6 minute drive). Our whānau has committed to living more simply and sustainably and appreciate your cooperation in helping minimise human impact on our local environment. To help move our whānau toward zero waste, we are now purchasing the majority of our home and tiny house supplies through Bin Inn and The Source. Glass milk and muesli containers, Boomerang bags, resuable Taupō one cup and takeaway containers, composting and recycling are all provided to help guests enjoy, care for, and make the most of Kōwhai Korner and beautiful Lake Taupō region.
    Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood (wake up to tuis!) at top of cul-de-sac yet close to town (6 minute drive or 45 minute walk).
  • Excelent place to stay! Very special decoration and details. We recomend to stay there 100%

    Paulette2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Attractive, functional, unique! Birds chirping, screens for soft breezes, convenient location! Private, safe, and sweet family! We loved our four days in this Taupo home. My husband and I are in our 70’s, and we wanted to try tiny house living. The experience was delightful!

    Nancy2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely LOVED my stay at the tiny house! Perfect in size and with all the amenities needed for my work trip. The trees surrounding the house gave such a feeling of tranquility, perfect after a stressful day. Will definitely love to stay again in future.

  • Karen has developed a lovely property. The compact suite is elegantly designed and furnished and there are lovely gardens and sitting areas. Karen's communication was excellent and she happily accommodated a couple of extra requests that we made during our stay. Karen's place is in a great location close to town but has the peace and quiet of a settled neighbourhood. Having the use of a washing machine after 9 days on the road was a real bonus. A perfect place for a couple, for a couple of nights!

    Elizabeth2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Garden Room is tastefully decorated and very comfortable, and its outdoor space, with a choice between sun and shade, is a real bonus. Karen is a friendly host with excellent tips and suggestions on the local area. The Orakei Korako Geothermal Park, a half-hour from town, was a standout , one of the absolute highlights of our six weeks in New Zealand.

  • Had an amazing stay! Bed was comfortable, whole place was extremely clean and tidy and it has everything you could need for a short stay! Over our stay the temperature during the day did reach 27/28 degrees so the loft did get quite warm. There is a fan and a massive window for air flow but just in case heat is your kryptonite, bear this in mind. We would definitely visit again!

    One ‘Little House’ situated: Two blocks back from the Lake; Three miles from town; Four minutes to the airport; Five minutes to a selection of boat ramps Six minutes to jump from a plane (sky dive) or take a scenic flight…….……….and ultimately a place for a timeless amount of ever-lasting fun!
    Your private hide-away will be situated on the side of the property, entrance to 'The Little House' from the driveway at the front of the property. ‘The Little House’ contains a queen bed, bedding, mini fridge, toaster, kettle, plates, cups, heater, towels, books, unlimited wifi, and a toilet and basin. There will be a light breakfast in the mini fridge and cupboard which consists of tea, coffee, milk, bread, jam, and honey. There is a shower available in the main house for use when we are around, otherwise you are only a step away from a quick dip in the lake.
  • Our stay at The Little House was perfect for what we needed and we can highly recommend staying here. The hosts are genuine, friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem. Even though the shower is inside the main house this was not a problem at all as we could come and go as we pleased. All facilities were very clean and tidy and the supplied breakfast was perfect! We were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. We stayed at The Little House for Ironman NZ and it is right on the run course so you can support the athletes from the comfort of your own property. A couple of minutes walk down to the end of the road is the lake for superb swimming. Will certainly stay again sometime soon. AAA+++

    Being experienced hospitality professionals, our idea of "looking after guests" goes miles beyond merely providing a comfortable bed and a Do-It-Yourself breakfast. So we happily take care of all the little details which we know will ultimately result in every guest enjoying their best stay ever. “Giday mate.” And “Namaste.” Welcome to our quintessential Indo-Kiwi home featuring Trevor as your super-friendly host, Tina as your ever-attentive hostess and Zoe, the rescued dogsbody, as herself. :-)
    We are hard-core foodies who love socializing so we designed our ultra-modern, newly built home to seamlessly cater to our twin passion: entertaining guests and cooking, Trevor being a qualified chef and Tina, an experienced home cook. We don't have any furniture suitable for infants or very young children and also have no child-proofing on electrical sockets and cupboards located close to the floor so we regret that we cannot host families with babies. However, we would love to welcome children above the age of 7 as long as their parents are 100% sure that the children will treat our home and its contents with respect and not cause any damages, and the parents accept full responsibility for their actions and are able to supervise them at all times. Please note we cannot allow a child to share the bed with both parents in one room, you would have to book both rooms together. The guest wing has two separate bedrooms for a total of 4 guests with a bathroom and a separate toilet which all guests share (whenever both rooms are booked at the same time). Guests also have access to a small lounge with a sofa and heaps of books. The two guest bedrooms reflect our two unique and diverse cultures: so the “All Black Sheep” room is distinctly Kiwi–style and the “Holy Cow” room is very Indian-themed. The listing you are currently looking at is for guests who wish to book both rooms together if you are 3 or 4 family members or friends travelling as a group. Our two rooms are also listed separately / individually on Air B n B. To see the listing for the Indian Room please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/30115394 and to see the listing for the Kiwi Room please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/29911611 Our large open plan kitchen, dining and living room with the patio and outdoor seating is the focal point of the house and you are welcome to join us there for food, drinks and conversation. Our home is in a quiet cul-de-sac and very peaceful... to ensure that our guests are guaranteed a sound night's sleep, in addition to our new and Queen-sized beds, we provide you with three different thicknesses of pillows, a pedestal fan, cool cotton bed linen and light-weight blankets during summer and electric blankets, cold-weather duvets, additional blankets and wall-mounted room heaters in winter. Awaiting you on the dining table in the morning will be our humble “welcome home” gift of delicious and super-healthy, three-layer breakfast-in-a-bowl that our guests rave about in their reviews: a base made with home-made meusli / granola full of dry fruits and nuts mixed with toasted jumbo rolled oats, freshly-made frozen fruit smoothie and a final topping of a dollop of yoghurt and a selection of fresh cut fruits (Check out the photos). We also happily cater to those wanting a simple / light breakfast featuring toast with your choice of spread.....butter, marmalade, jam, peanut butter, Marmite and Vegemite. Long story short, we do bed and breakfast, both. Exceedingly well. But wait! There's so much more.... - Two FREE kayaks + 2 paddles + 2 life jackets + a car roof rack for transporting the kayaks from our home to the lake that guests can borrow during their stay with us - Delicious, wholesome, unpretentious dinner ($25 per person) : your choice of European-Kiwi food (made by Trevor who is a qualified and experienced chef) or an Indian meal (lovingly prepared by Tina, a seasoned home cook :-) - Organic and home-grown fruits, veggies and herbs (check out the photos) - Filtered, fluoride-free, drinking water - Free tea and coffee (Green tea / Herbal Tea / English Breakfast) with a choice of organic non-homogenised A2 cow's milk or organic rice milk - Choice of beverages apart from tea & coffee: coconut water or home-made water kefir - Easy & safe parking in our driveway - Fully tiled spacious bathroom with enclosed shower & washbasin stocked with good quality hand wash, face wipes, shampoo, soap, hair dryer and even an electric foot spa to soak and massage your tired feet - Wardrobe with hangers and plenty of storage space in guest bedrooms along with an Ironing board and steam iron in each - Shiatsu massager for the neck and shoulders (a favourite among those who have driven long distances) - Free wifi / Free pick up from downtown for single travellers using public transport We honestly believe that every stranger is a friend we haven't met yet, and this is the ethos behind our hosting style. So if there is any other information you need, please send us a message and we’ll get back to you quickly....just like a caring friend would.
    Our house is on the way to Taupo airport and is located about 5 kilometers from the town centre. There is a walkway & bike trail through a couple of underpasses close to our home…the walk takes just 8 minutes. From there you can walk or bike in either direction: away from or towards town......a fine example of our "Tranquil Taupo". A drive to the town centre will take no more than 5 minutes and all types of shops catering to anything you might possibly want are located here, including a couple of supermarkets.
  • Our stay at Tina's and Trevor's was truly wonderful for several reasons: - Tina and Trevor are marvelous hosts who take their time to talk to guests and get to know them; - they also share many stories about NZ and themselves with guests and will give you useful tips if you need them; - Tina prepared delicious and healthy breakfasts; - Trevor cooked a very tasty dinner for us; - the place is very stylish, modern and crystal clean; - all amenities are provided (towels, shower gels, hair dryer, water and tissues in each room) and guest rooms are in a separate house wing together with the toilet and bathroom; - Zoe (the dog) enhanced the experience as we are all dog lovers. If you wish to interact with your hosts, learn about life in NZ and have an enjoyable stay in Taupo, we highly recommend booking with Tina and Trevor!

  • Wow, what an amazing Air BnB this is!. The place is immaculate, the food very good, but alas, no eggs on toast. :(( However, Trevor and Tina are top rate superhosts. TAUPO was our final holiday stay. BOTH Taupo and our hosts were the highlight of our two week tour!

    Conley2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent communication, stunning house with everything we could possibly need and more, incredibly friendly hosts who became friends after our short stay. Outstanding cooking from Tina - definitely try anything she has to offer! Lovely walk to the lake with Trevor and the dog Zoe, who will steal your heart. Thank you so much!

    Helen2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • If there was a level beyond super host Tina and Trevor would be on it. Both are superb chefs and the meal offered as an extra in the evening is an absolute must for visitors. The quality of the room is also outstanding as is the time that Trevor and Tina give you. Top top class.

    alan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Hospitality, supper, breakfast, rooms and shower was spotless and very modern and new! Great hosts in a great environment!! Book now, you won’t regret this superb setting!

    Lyne2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tina’s place was exactly as described. Clean, styles and comfortable. The communication with her was fast, she was very responsive, sometimes little too detailed in her instructions but once we met in person she was very kind and friendly, a great host with her husband. Tina made an amazing south-Indian dinner for us (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) that we enjoyed a lot. It is highly recommended to try when you stay at her place.

    David And Virag2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to be we loved it

    Piyush2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Trevor are excellent hosts. The amenities are new and clean, they live five minutes from the lake, they prepare amazing food, and are in general just good people. Their dog Zoe is super cute and friendly too, one of the most mellow pups we've ever met! We miss her already

    Nestled in trees and only 300 meters from the 2 Mile Bay Reserve and launch ramp onto beautiful Lake Taupo, Serendipity Cottage is warm, tranquil, comfortable and from what visitors tell has “a serene peaceful energy”. You are within easy walking distance from the Sailing Centre, the popular Lions Walk, Dairy, Takeaway, Ploughman’s Pub, lakeside Cafe & one of Taupo’s finest Restaurants. It’s only a 7 minute drive into Taupo CBD. Serendipity means “finding something good without looking for it”
    The theme of Serendipity is followed through in the cottage with pictures, quotes and Virtues cards that remind us of Well-Being and Peace
    Very Quiet, Safe and Peaceful with plenty of privacy from the road and neighbors. It is literally 4 minutes to the lake and the award winning scenic Lions Walk.
  • Thanks Ros

    Andrew2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely clean cottage in pretty back yard garden, with great amenities and lake views. Charming host with great local advice. Good location close to lake, although car required to access Taupo CBD. Strongly recommended.

    Jeff2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ros is a great host, her accomodation is quiet, clean and comfortable, we appreciated the homebaked cookies and chocolate! Very handy location to the lake walkway. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Taupo.

    Jillian2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful!! This is a very comfortable place to stay, and is well located in Taupo. Best of all, Ros is a warm and friendly host. I really recommend it.

    Dwight2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, clean and peaceful home. Thank you so much Ros for your kindness and hospitality. I highly recommend this place.

    Christelle2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ros is honestly one of the kindest, most hospitable and lovely Airbnb hosts I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her cottage is basically a beautiful guest house with its own air conditioning, kitchen and bathroom. I highly recommend staying here if you are a couple or have a child (there are two beds). The backyard is very pleasant and pretty as well. 10/10

    Theresa2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Serendipity Cottage is tranquil and cosy. Ros made us very welcome. Our stay was for 2 nights and wished it was longer.

    Sue2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a very warm greeting from your host Ros. The cottage is very charmingly furnished and has a very relaxed feel. The amenities are good and thoughtfully provided. Overall a very happy experience.

    Marianne2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beyond 5* :) I stayed for 4 nights and could happily have stayed for longer. Gordon is a fantastic host - friendly, very helpful, interesting, an expert on the local area and New Zealand overall and an absolutely lovely person. I had my own bedroom, bathroom, fridge and space to prepare food on the ground floor. I felt very much ‚at home‘, which I really appreciated. The bedroom was lovely - very comfortable bed and a choice of pillows and plenty of space. It was very peaceful too.Gordon made me feel very welcome and I enjoyed a lovely dinner and catch up with him and his great flatmate Greg on the gorgeous upstairs veranda with a beautiful view of the lake on my first evening. The location is superb, the Two Mile sailing club at the bottom of the hill is great for relaxing on the beanbags after a cycle along the lake or a local hike. I wouldn‘t hesitate to stay here again and can‘t recommend highly enough. Thank you so much Gordon for making my time in Taupo a really special part and happy memory of my time in New Zealand :)

    Being experienced hospitality professionals, our idea of "looking after guests" goes miles beyond merely providing a comfortable bed and a Do-It-Yourself breakfast. So we happily take care of all the little details which we know will ultimately result in every guest enjoying their best stay ever. “Giday mate.” And “Namaste.” Welcome to our quintessential Indo-Kiwi home featuring Trevor as your super-friendly host, Tina as your ever-attentive hostess and Zoe, the rescued dogsbody, as herself. :-)
    We are hard-core foodies who love socializing so we designed our ultra-modern, newly built home to seamlessly cater to our twin passion: entertaining guests and cooking, Trevor being a qualified chef and Tina, an experienced home cook. We don't have any furniture suitable for infants or very young children and also have no child-proofing on electrical sockets and cupboards located close to the floor so we regret that we cannot host families with babies. However, we would love to welcome children above the age of 7 as long as their parents are 100% sure that the children will treat our home and its contents with respect and not cause any damages, and the parents accept full responsibility for their actions and are able to supervise them at all times. Please note we cannot allow a child to share the bed with both parents in one room, you have to also book our other bedroom (IF available at the time of your reservation). The guest wing has two separate bedrooms for a total of 4 guests with a bathroom and a separate toilet which all guests share (whenever both rooms are booked at the same time). Guests also have access to a small lounge with a sofa and heaps of books. The two guest bedrooms reflect our two unique and diverse cultures: so the “All Black Sheep” room is distinctly Kiwi–style and the “Holy Cow” room is very Indian-themed. Our two rooms are also listed separately / individually on Air B n B and the listing you are currently looking at is for the Kiwi Room. To see the listing for the Indian Room please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/30115394 Or if you wish to book both rooms together (if you are a family of 3 or 4 members or friends travelling as a group) please check https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/30115784 Our large open plan kitchen, dining and living room with the patio and outdoor seating is the focal point of the house and you are welcome to join us there for food, drinks and conversation. Our home is in a quiet cul-de-sac and very peaceful... to ensure that our guests are guaranteed a sound night's sleep, in addition to our new and Queen-sized beds, we provide you with three different thicknesses of pillows, a pedestal fan, cool cotton bed linen and light-weight blankets during summer and electric blankets, cold-weather duvets, additional blankets and wall-mounted room heaters in winter. Awaiting you on the dining table in the morning will be our humble “welcome home” gift of delicious and super-healthy, three-layer breakfast-in-a-bowl that our guests rave about in their reviews: a base made with home-made meusli / granola full of dry fruits and nuts mixed with toasted jumbo rolled oats, freshly-made frozen fruit smoothie and a final topping of a dollop of yoghurt and a selection of fresh cut fruits (Check out the photos).

  • Though a little way out of Taupo this accommodation is lovely. Definitely try the wonderful cooking offered by Trevor & Tina. You will not go wrong picking here to stay.

    Beverly2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Trevor are amazing hosts!! They make you feel so very welcome! We spent an amazing 2 days with them! It is easy to discuss about many subjects with them and we laughed so much! The accommodations are perfect, everything is superclean, the breakfast is yummy and they helped us change our plans when our plan A fell through!! If we get the chance to come back again in Taupo, we’ll make sure to visit them again!! As they beautifully said, we arrived as strangers and left as friends 💖

    Jean-François2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best and well run stays we have ever stayed in only minutes away from all Taupo has to offer

    Wayne2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Trevor's house was very nice. We had a lovely home cooked meal and chat during our stay. The dusk walk with Trevor and the dog Zoe was also lovely and relaxing. We really appreciated the sandwiches for the hike we did the next day on Tongariro also. It was an unexpected touch. Thanks again guys!

    Gavin John2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Michael2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tina and Trev are amazing hosts and their home is beautiful and very welcoming. They thought of everything and the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious (smoothie bowels) and we enjoyed an evening walk with Trev & Zoe (the doggie) to watch the sunset over the lake. We would definitely stay again when in the area.

    Large, light and airy room with comfortable king-sized bed, fold-out couch, tv and air-con plus bathroom with shower all on a separate floor and solely for guests' use. Mini kitchenette, including a fridge, microwave, small oven with stove, jug and toaster between the two spaces. We use the front door and will pop into the garage beside you from time to time but, otherwise, the space is yours for your stay :) Beautiful Lake Taupo is just a short walk away! Ask if you need anything at all :)
    We live directly across from a large park/reserve and very close to the lake. Our favourite restaurants are The Brantry and The Bistro (Tamamutu St.) Cafes to visit: L’arte and Storehouse. The Source is a gorgeous bulk foods treat also! Our favourite hot pools are Wairakei Terraces - there is often a great discount voucher on GrabOne - let us know if you'd like the link messaged to you. Such a worthwhile visit. Also, free hot springs - Otumuheke at Spa Park right on the beautiful Waikato River - an amazing experience! Especially recommend kayaking the river to the springs but don’t miss the get off point at Reid’s Farm! Other things to see and do: Huka Falls, especially walking to them from Spa Park. Aratiatia Dam. If you're here at Easter time, check out Easterfest - a great music and arts festival Taupo hosts.
  • A cosy stay for our overnight in Taupo. Comfortable bed and a nice large bathroom. Great walk into town along Lake Taupo.

    Ted2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Pauline2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, just 5-10 minutes from the city by car. The place has got everything you need for short stay. The room is facing the street that gets traffic especially in the morning, therefore it may get a bit noisy if you want to sleep in. Overall, good value if you are looking for a place to crash for the night.

    Aki2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • We have been using AB&B for years and this was one of the best overall experiences. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night. The accommodations were better than described with lots of room and nice decor. The local tips provided by Nicola and Darryl were better than the tourist office! They had brochures and directions for every attraction. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the trail to downtown. Thank you for a great experience.

It’s a bit further from town but that means it’s quiet and peaceful. A lot of bugs so be sure to shut the windows and doors at night. Overall enjoyed our stay!

    Michelle2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nicola and Darryl are really unimaginable and friendly hosts! Thank you so much for all the activities and free access to Taupo. It was so bad that I stayed in Taupo for one day. The accommodation is very clean and pretty like a picture I hope you enjoy your stay here!

    Quiet Family home with myself and two older children that occupy it. There are two lounges so you will have plenty of your own space during your stay.
    All the spaces are there for you to use except the upstairs lounge. We occupy this as our own private space. The bedroom is a spacious queen room with wardrobe. Garden and street views. Spacious open plan lounge and kitchen with ranch sliders to open the whole lounge up. Any bikes can be stored in the garage. Or tri bikes can come inside the house. We eat early so there’s no problems about tripping over us why you try to cook. We will stay out of your way. Evenings we occupy the upstairs so you will have the whole lounge/kitchen to yourselves. The house is split over three levels. Yours is the only room on the lower levels along with the kitchen/lounge. Level two has your shared bathroom. Separate toilet and one child’s bedroom. Level three has lounge bedrooms and bathroom/toilet.
    Nice area. We are beside the Waipahihi botanical gardens. Good trail running or walking tracks. 5mins walk to the lake. (All down hill) nice neighbours. (They are old) so no parties or late night noises. This is a VERY quiet and relaxed house. (Early to bed early to rise so to speak)
  • Amy as been amazing and the place is in a perfect location.

    Sarah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my time here, I had a lovely room was just perfect. Excellent host very helpful awesome for ideas and help with travel suggestions and an excellent breakfast. If I ever get a chance to visit New Zealand again I will book straight away.
