What a little gem. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and obviously take pride in the presentation and cleanliness of their rooms. We had a standard studio (so one of the cheapest rooms) It was spacious and had a good view of the mountains. One tip - ask the hosts for dining suggestions in Taupo. They have discount vouchers for some eating places - e.g Dixie Browns. We discovered this after we had eaten a very nice meal there.
