David and Liz were perfect hosts and made me feel part of the family - and so did their adorable dog Elsie. Their home is beautiful - tastefully furnished and decorated with fabulous lake views. I was greeted with tea and home-made biscuits. David took me out on the lake and I made my debut in a kayak - it was a great experience. Dinner was beautifully cooked by Liz - with their own smoked trout as an appetiser, leg of lamb with home grown veg and a wicked chocolate roulade dessert. My bedroom was perfect and the en-suite had every toiletry I could possibly need. After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast I was sad to leave.

We can easily arrange for our guests bookings including fishing charters, cultural tours and even for a floatplane to uplift you from the beach by our letter box. The latter is a surprisingly inexpensive option and can take you to such marvelous vistas as volcanic White Island and Mount Tarawera. We love it here. You will too. ... more less
