what our guests say about our location:

" We had such a lovely stay with Erica and Geoff. I wish we allocated more than 3 days in lake Taupo. The location of the house and town is ideal to explore the Centre of North Island, with Rotorua, Tongariro and Waitomo Caves... Napier and Hawke’s Bay are only 2 hours away.  The lake itself has many attractions to offer and deserves at least one full day if not more. Taupo town has a wonderful selection of restaurants, coffee shops and bars in addition to beautiful views across the lake.

BnB is located on the shore and offers amazing views. The house itself is in impeccable condition. Our gorgeous bedroom was comfortable and had everything we needed. Erica has done an amazing job decorating the house. You can really tell that owners put their heart and soul into their dwelling and desire to make guests feel at home. Erica’s breakfast spread deserves a separate note. We were well fed before starting our adventures in the morning! The hosts shared a wealth of information with us about the activities we can do, the country and the culture. Erica has multiple official brochures available in the house for guests to check out. We absolutely recommend Erica & Geoff’s BnB and would love to come back one day!"
