Amazing views and friendly owner. Breakfast was great and the rooms are comfy. Two lovely cats and a dog at the residence, so be mindful if you have allergies. Very peaceful stay and we Would definitely return. Thank you Deb...........

We stayed 2 nights with Deb and found the whole experience to be excellent. We had a double room with a separate private bathroom, both of which were spotlessly clean and well appointed. The room led directly onto the verandah, which is where we were able to have our breakfast both mornings in glorious sunshine with a view to Lake... More

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful B&B which is just outside Taupo in Acacia Bay. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the flowers and grounds only add to the experience. Deb was a great host and supplied us with a super breakfast in the mornings. Good recommendations for dinner, the pub at the bottom of the... More

One of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at. Room was great with a stunning view. Deb is an amazing host and is so friendly and makes you feel like you are part of the family. She gave us great places to visit in the area that made our trip really special. If you are staying in Taupo this is... More

I stayed about six days with Deb, and it was more akin to visiting friends than staying at a B&B. The room, the views, the overall size of the property, and her dog Baxter were sensational and only matched by Deb's charm and sense of humour. I could not recommend this place more, it was a fantastic experience and such... More

Deb, the owner, was very gracious and "over the top" during a recent stay in Taupo for a golf holiday! I stayed here before and I will stay here again since in my opinion it's the best available especially since the Wairakei and Kinloch GC are closeby. By the way, Deb has a 14 handicap so is very informed of... More

This comment upsets me as this woman was extremely rude and abusive over the phone. She did not have a booking at my lodge however when she called to cancel thinking this was her accommodation, I genuinely mistook her cancellation for one of my clients who also cancelled at the same time (an honest mistake on my behalf). There was... More

Lovely b&b with well loved gardens and peaceful views of the lake and surrounding countryside. We were treated warmly by not only Deb but by her host pets who greeted us when we arrived! Deb was a wonderful host offering the comfort of her home, tasty breakfasts, comfotable bed, and tips for activities. She even arranged a golf game for... More

First Class! Private tennis court, world class golf nearby, Lake Taupo and Deb is a fantastic hostess! Simply the best! There is a large fireplace and sitting room. A wonderful billiard room and bar. Deb is very detailed in keeping her place spotless. Enjoyed it very much. Wonderful sunrise views too!

A very comfortable Bed and Breakfast place. Large home with a huge guest bathroom. One hectare (2.5 acres) of grounds. We only stayed the one night but would like to have stayed for much longer. Excellent service and a great breakfast.
