  • Description


    We are a family of 5 who live on a small lifestyle block 10 minutes drive from Taupo and 5 minutes drive to our beautiful Lake Taupo.

    We have lived and travelled alot overseas with our family and enjoy sharing our home with other global adventurers.

    Please only contact us if you are about to arrive in New Zealand or currently travelling in New Zealand. Often our needs can be at short notice so if you need a home stay with limited notice we encourage you to contact us. :)

    What else ...

    Lake Taupo has so much to keep you busy when you have time off - thermal wonderland, our great lake, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking. fishing, water sports. We are also only an hr away from Mt Ruapehu, and Mt Tongariro.
    Centrally located Taupo is a great place to be based to explore in all directions.

    Taupo is a small laid back town but with a great vibe because of all the local and international tourists who pop in. We have great shops, restaurants and cafes without the craziness of big cities.
