House Rules

Please give us a more accurate idea of your arrival time closer to your visit. We are a busy family and this helps us to plan our day.

This is a family home, we enjoy socialising but would prefer that you do any partying in town - Taupo night life is just a short walk away.

You're welcome to smoke outside but no smoking in the house please.

Hallway door to remain open at all times (allows cats to get to food and litter tray).

Make sure you have warm socks or slippers with you as we don't allow shoes on in the house.

Base rate assumes two people are sharing the main guest room only. If you are two people travelling together but want separate rooms, that’s fine with us, however we charge an extra $40 per night, which you can pay in cash on arrival or by altering you booking to show ‘three’ guests instead of ‘two’ (as far as we know this is the only way the $40 per night can be added to your booking via the Airbnb payment system).

You must also acknowledge
Cat(s) live in the house

Bij aankomst werden wij vriendelijk ontvangen door Mike & Mo. We werden door Mo voorzien van alle info voor bezienswaardigheden in en rondom Taupo. Kamer en badkamer waren zeer netjes. Ontbijt was prima en van alle gemakken voorzien.

Mo and Mike were fantastic hosts and could not have done anything more to make us feel welcome and comfortable in their home. Both Mo and Mike took interest in our travel plans, ensuring they were safe and we weren't missing out on any 'must do' activities. They had fantastic recommendations for food and activities so if you want the same ones you should definitely stay with them!

What a wonderful place to stay. We were welcomed at the door by Poppy who is full of life and a true delight. Mo our host was warm and welcoming with great suggestions on dining and activities in the area. The room was well appointed and beautifully maintained. The house was quaint and homely. We really felt like part of the family for the night and only wanted to stay longer. Thank you Mike, Mo, Poppy and Charlie, It was a true pleasure staying with you. We highly recommend to any any traveler.

Mike And Mo User ProfileMike And Mo is a superhost.

Kiwi's by birth we spent 10 years living and working in the UK before returning home and moving to beautiful Taupo (Mike's originally from Wellington and Mo grew up in Northland).

We know what it is like to be in unfamiliar territory and have always enjoyed meeting new people, finding common ground, introducing others to our Kiwi ways and in return discovering interesting people and cultures. We count amongst our friends those from the UK, Australia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Turkey and the United States.

We will do our utmost to ensure our place is a home away from home for you and very much look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our family.
