Our home is close to the lake, a 5 minute drive to the centre of Taupo and exactly 1 hour drive to Mt Ruapehu. Turangi is 30 minutes south for the keen fisherman. Our home has a relaxed, holiday feel and beautiful deck which overlooks the garden. We have a four bedroom home and two rooms are available. The #1Queen bed is literally the comfiest in the house. Tea and coffee and available and use of all amenities for the duration of your stay.
Our lockwood home is user friendly, homely and relaxed and in a lovely part of Taupo. There is a dairy, bottleshop, takeaway and bar nearby as well as cafes and the Botanical Gardens within walking distance. The rooms are 2 of the four rooms within the house. The bathroom and two toilets are shared.
You will be welcome in out home and have access to the lounge, kitchen to make tea and coffee, the deck, garden, bathroom and shower. Tea and coffee is available to you as well as two adult mountain bikes which we are happy to lend along with your assurance that you will respect these. There is no private access I'm afraid, but there is space for everyone and you will feel most welcome.

My partner is a long haul, overnight truckdriver so his hours are unpredictable. Your paths generally wont cross, but if he is asleep during the day we ask that you keep the noise to a respectable level.
Please let us know what time you plan to arrive. During Winter, we will be offering transport and possibly guiding around Whakapapa ski field as well as support with hiring ski gear. As an experienced skier, with hosting experience and a life pass for Ruapehu, I am happy to add ski hosting during the weekends.
The only extra to note is that breakfast is either scrambled eggs, toast, tea, coffee or cereal, yoghurt, date scones and jam, tea and coffee. Checkout is 10am.
