This home stay is a little out of Taupo but so worth it. A modern house with every amenity. Hosts are really friendly and helpful. Our room was enormous and it is worth having a ratch in the drawers in your room because we kept finding things such as docking stations and hair dryers. The bathroom was well stocked with... More

Great place to stay. Very welcomming family and great room with very comfortable king bed. Would definatley stay here again when in Taupo - at this rate you can't beat it. Hosts provided great recommendations about local restaurants and places to see on the way to Auckland.

Four of us went to Taupo on a winter jaunt for no particular reason in late June and got lucky when we chose Kauri Point for our accommodation. We spent a relaxed and enjoyable hour or so sitting around chatting with Gail and Robert when we arrived and had lots of laughs with them over a leisurely breakfast next morning.... More

Thank you for taking time to write your review. As always hugely appreciated. You will be pleased to know that we have finally 'cut the ribbon' on our central heating system, and just in time for a really cold blast from the south. The whole house is now beautifully warm - fired by our 'carbon neutral' wood fired furnace. It... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us. I think it is worth mentioning that our current rates are reduced by 50%. These rates take into account the fact that continental breakfast is offered instead of the full cooked option and that we are currently doing some... More

Well worth the ten minutes from town for a serene setting and Gail and Roberts caring approach. Warm and relaxing with a stunning breakfast and small really thought through extras. We shall return to the country setting.

My wife and I planned an 8 day trip to New Zealand for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We prefer to stay in B&B's over Hotel's for many many reasons. The primary reason is the personal touch only a B&B can give to your stay. From the moment we drove up, Kauri Point felt like "Home" even though our real... More

Taupo is one of our favorite spots in New Zealand and Kauri Point is the best place to stay in the area. This was our 2nd time visiting Kauri Point and it did not disappoint. Our hosts were so gracious, it was like seeing old friends. We stayed in the Ngatoroirangi, for two nights. Our room was extremely clean and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Robert & Gail would love to welcome you to your "Luxury home when you are away from Home." You will arrive as guests and leave as friends having enjoyed being thoroughly spoiled from the moment you arrive. Stay as long as you can - Taupo has so much to offer you, and we are so close to other cities such as Rotorua and the Hawke's Bay - so unpack your bags for a few days and relax and really enjoy New Zealand at its best. Our suites are luxuriously appointed and all are en-suite and have deck access. Join us in the evening for a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink before you head into town for dinner (we will even drive you in). Alternatively, and by prior arrangement, we can prepare your supper, a light meal or home cooked wood fired pizza, cooked in our outdoor pizza oven. Welcome to New Zealand,have a great holiday in paradise. ... more   less
