Interaction with guests
We will most likely meet you at the studio ( we live upstairs) to hand over the keys and go over the house rules etc with you. We're pretty easy to get on with and once you're settled we don't bother you, but you are welcome to pop up and see us if there is a problem or you need help with anything.

We appreciated the kitchen and use of washer by our entrance. Comfortable bed; deck and BBQ out back+ a clothesline. Close to beach, restaurants and Spa Park. This house is behind another on the street, so quiet as well, although the neighborhood is a quiet...More

Great flat was in a quiet area close to the town and the lake (walking about 10 minutes). There is lots to do around Taupo and fab restaurants. The flat itself was comfy and had all the amenities you needed. Heather and Louise were really...More

To be honest, I had my reservations about booking this rental property e.g. lack of reviews, booking directly through TripAdvisor and the need to pay a deposit. I wasn't too keen on the idea of the owners being just upstairs either. Fortunately though, all my...More

About the neighbourhood
Our favourite places are listed in our house manual/rules but as a taster here are a few places you should try and visit. Vines Restaraunt - great food, great wine and great hosts. Huka Falls - pure energy packaged in a small area. Craters of the Moon - for a walk around the out of this world feeling of thermal activity (approx 1hr30min). Paddle & Spoon - the local hangout for a decent coffee and slice. A fantastic place to relax is the Wairakei Terraces - Silica mineral hot pools OR you have De Bretts Hot pools which is more family and fun orientated with a Pool Slide that loops round.
Getting around
Everything is quite close so walking to town to get to the supermarket will take about 15 to 20 min or 5 min by car. If you're into cycling and want to hire a bike there are a few shops around town that will do this. Pack n Pedal, & Torpedo are just two that you could try. You will need to hire a car if you don't already have one to get around to the different sites around Taupo - you could try Pegasus Rentals we have found them to be good.
