Ideally located to explore Taupo and the central plateau region. Central and close to the lake and town. Secure off street parking. Lots of room for you to relax and enjoy the space in your room, the shared lounge and kitchen areas, as well as the front and back deck. You could borrow a picnic blanket or bean bag to relax on the lawn too!

We will be continuing on with our daily routines while you are here and are happy to give you space or interact and socialise as desired. We are more than happy to help you plan your itinerary and offer tips and directions!
As of early November 2016, we have a new addition to the family, a baby girl! Don't worry, you won't be disturbed, she doesn't cry a lot and her room in our private area is upstairs and quite separate from the rest of the house.
Our cats are very friendly and love visitors, however if you don't share the affection please feel free to shut them out of your room or shoo them away :)

The water pressure in the house can be affected by taps, washing machine, sprinkler etc, just be aware of that when taking a shower as we want you to have a nice, hot shower!
The toilets are "slow fill" toilets, designed to fill up very quietly and slowly. As a result, they will not flush fully within 20mins of the last flush so just be aware and don't panic if you can't flush properly! Just close the lid and come back a bit later. We mostly use a separate toilet upstairs, so no worries :)
We enjoy having a tidy and relaxing home and appreciate when guests are respectful and tidy in the shared spaces, as well as cleaning up the kitchen and dishes after use. We appreciate a quieter noise level after 10pm.
We love our town, it's a fantastic place to visit and to live! Joel works in the tourism industry as well as audio visual and film production and Nicola is a primary school teacher. We love sunset walks at the lake front year round and the lake or river is our favourite place in summer. Good movies and TV are the way we relax at home as well as pursuing our hobbies - gardening, painting, film making.
We have loved using airbnb on our travels both near and far, getting to know the locals and making the most of their recommendations and advice. We love to host people in our new home, offering the same support as well as letting guests come and go as they please.
