We’d like to welcome you into our family home, located just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of town and 5 minutes’ walk to the lake front. A home-away-from-home, our place is quiet, comfortable and clean and we’d love to share it with you.
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).
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
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.
