Maggie and Ivan are the kindest and most genuine hosts one can ever meet. Breakfast conversations and any exchanges were always earnest. Maggie even went out of her way to help get the lightning cable for my iPhone when she heard that mine wasn't working.
The Garden Suite was spacious and spotlessly clean, with two rooms each with a queen size bed, and a lounge to relax. The highlight of our stay was trout fishing on Maggie and Ivan's boat. Maggie and Ivan made the arrangement for our catch to be prepared by the Mole and Chicken restaurant just next door to their home. Ivan then prepared the best smoked trout the next day for breakfast.
Instead of making separate arrangements for lodging and fishing, Above the Lake did both for us, relieving us of any potential headaches.
Look no further. This should be the only place to stay in Lake Taupo!
