The Acacia Bay Lodge is a beautiful house located about 5 minutes from central Taupo and has great views to Lake Taupo and Mount Tauhara beyond. There are beautiful gardens around the house and the interior is equally stunning. The bedroom was very comfortable with views onto the garden and the spacious bathroom was excellent. We only stop for one night travelling further south but Deb made us feel very welcome in her home and provided a very nice breakfast prior to us leaving. Would recommend this B&B to anyone who is visiting Taupo area.

When we arrived we were made very welcome by Baxter, the resident minature schnauzer, swiftly followed by Deb and John who made us feel right at home. It's a beautiful spacious house in extremely large grounds in a quiet area just on the outskirts of Taupo. There is a shop and restaurant in walking distance and it only takes a few minutes to get to the centre of Taupo. The room and bathroom facilities were clean, attractive and very well appointed. The huge bath and view over the lake from the deck just outside the bedroom window getting a massive vote of approval!
Our hosts invited us to join them in the evening for a glass of wine and some pleasant conversation and and breakfast was a delight, with Baxter waiting to lead us to the table when we opened the bedroom door. Taupo is a great place to stay and explore and I can't think of anywhere nicer to stay to enjoy it all than Acacia Lodge.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Terrace room and can thoroughly recommend it. However, I suspect that the standard of any other room would be just as high.

Our welcome was not only by Deb, proprietor of Acacia Bay Lodge, but also by her attentive and loving animal family of a Scotty and 2 Burmese. We felt most at home in her gracious accomodations. We had a nice queen room which opened to the deck and had a grand view of Lake Taupo, The bath was large with double sinks, shower and tub. Our breakfasts were delicious including homemade muffins and fresh fruit. Deb knows the area well and shared her recommendations with us. Her garden is vast and filled with lovely roses. Her home in adjacent to a sheep farm. There is a pond with Lilly pads and goldfish. Laundry facilities are available as well a a refridgerator. Deb is quite the gal, golfer and gardner, not to mention wonderful hostess. This is the place to stay near Lake Taupo, away from the town, but very convenient to it.

Had a lovely few days staying at the Acacia Bay Lodge. Should have spent longer enjoying the beautiful garden but we were rushing around during our days to see as much as possible of Taupo and Rotorua! We thought that staying here was a good base to see both areas. Deb was very hospitable and relaxed and the dog and cats are lovely. The B&B is a few minutes drive from Taupo but the views make up for it and there is a great restaurant and shop at the bottom of the hill. Would really recommend this B&B.

Not only are the accommodations and view fantastic, the massive back yard (size of a small farm) is perfect for the children to run off and play in. Wife and I hardly saw the kids (aged 7 and 4) as they entertained themselves outdoors. Felt like we had a baby sitter (Mother Nature) for free! Add to all that the fact that Deb and John are gracious hosts, and you have a great B&B experience. We'll definitely be going back every year from now on (we go to NZ every year).
