“Perfect for the whole family”
Reviewed 10 April 2010

Not only are the accommodations and view fantastic, the massive back yard (size of a small farm) is perfect for the children to run off and play in. Wife and I hardly saw the kids (aged 7 and 4) as they entertained themselves outdoors. Felt like we had a baby sitter (Mother Nature) for free! Add to all that the fact that Deb and John are gracious hosts, and you have a great B&B experience. We'll definitely be going back every year from now on (we go to NZ every year).

My husband and I stayed with Deb as we were in Acacia Bay for a wedding at Westwellow. Having contacted a few B&B’s in the area we were impressed with Deb’s responsiveness and loved the look of the lodge and views over Taupo.

From arrival we felt like we were staying with family. Deb sat down and had a glass of wine with us and we chatted for about an hour before she directed us to the only restaurant in town (which was amazing) just a 5min walk down the road. After a fantastic sleep on some of the nicest linen I’ve seen we were woken by Monty the cat (who decided early on he owned us), then treated to a cooked and continental breakfast feast. We then sat out on the balcony and took in some of the views.

Deb even dropped us off at the wedding, which was beyond the call.

Acacia Bay Lodge is a fantastic place to stay if you prefer a modern retreat and great company. Deb and John have created a beautiful house for themselves, and you do get the feeling you’re staying with the well-to-do Aunty and Uncle you didn’t know you had. Besides the gorgeous house and guest rooms, and the biggest bathroom I’ve ever seen, I think the best feature of the lodge is the lack of fussing; Deb is happy to have you around the house without making you feel awkward or that you are intruding (in fact you forget you’re a paying guest). This meant we felt comfortable lounging around in PJ’s watching the rugby with a cat each on our knees.
