Felt Like Home. I spent three weeks here, my wife and boys were with me the last ten days. I came early to finish training for the 30th anniversary Ironman in Taupo. Tony and Susan were incredible hosts. They made me feel completely at home. They even let me use their garage to keep my bike safe at night. Breakfasts... More

Our family spent 4 nights at this lodge in Taupo and it was a wonderful experience. The location was scenic - right on the lake and the accommodations where very comfortable. The Dalby's (Susan and Tony) provided a wonderful breakfast each morning and offered a delightful glass of wine and delicious appetizers before we headed out to dinner. Anytime we... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent. It was so welcoming. Great conversation and Susan and Tony are so easy to talk to, though the Americas cup was keeping all Kiwis on the edge of their seats so we learned all about yacht racing. Every little thing was in place for a perfect stay (except the weather,... More

My wife and I stayed here over a year ago and through all of travels, this has to be one of the top places we have ever stayed mainly due to the wonderful owners who spare nothing to make you feel at home. From the welcome wine and nibbles, the amazing breakfast including fantastic home made muesli, and the great... More

They offered wine, conversation and the warmth of their fire on a chilly end of fall day to myself, my husband and our college aged son. The rooms were immaculate and provided views along with every comfort - and even beyond first class comforts like good coffee and chocolates. They too have traveled many, many places and it was great... More

My husband and I found this fabulous jewel on the internet for us another couple to stay for our first few nights in NZ's N. Island. Although we checked in a little too early, we were treated to a lovely welcome by our hosts, the Dalbeys. Their home was built to accommodate a B and B and it is most... More

My wife and I stayed at Wharewaka for a night during our tour of New Zealand. It was a highlight!. Susan and Tony are incredible host and share their beautiful home like you are long lost relatives.

We stayed at Wharewaka Lodge for three nights in February 2013. This is a gorgeous private home overlooking Lake Taupo. The rooms are lovely, quiet and well-appointed. The Lodge is located in a very private residential area, but also just a short drive from downtown Taupo and very convenient to the fly-fishing and rafting excursions we arranged with the help...
