We had no idea what to expect and were so surprised. What a fabulous place run by lovely people and we felt it was one of the high,ignts of our NZ tour. Thank you Gail and Robert. You went out of your way to make us feel at home and even offered dinner on your usual "night off".

This place was the best place to say when we were travelling through Taupo. The hosts were so welcoming and friendly. The room, house and sorrounding gardens were spectacular. They even let us use their pizza oven and kitchen when they were not home, which was very trusting. I will stay here every time I go to Taupo going forward....

Lovely accommodations! The hosts have an exquisite eye for detail. Exceptional breakfast, the host eagerly provided for my vegetarian request. The hosts were there to help in any way but never intrusive. When I asked about things to see and do in the area they were really helpful. I would totally stay there again and I hope I do!

Friendly and welcoming hosts who gave us good advice regarding places to eat and attractions to visit in Taupo. Nice and quiet, 10 minutes out of Taupo in a peaceful rural setting. Bellbirds, tui and native pigeons in the trees and the odd rabbit in the grounds. A lot of work has gone into making Kauri Point a relaxing and...

My partner and I stayed here for one night, which truly wasn't enough. The hosts were incredible and made us feel right at home. Our bedroom and ensuite was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding! We can not recommend this place enough!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at kauri point - wish it was longer than one night! The property is great and Gail and Rob were so welcoming. Very helpful recommendations for dinner and great amenities (tea station, spa pool etc). The rooms themselves are high spec and very comfortable. Breakfast was great! Can thoroughly recommend.

My girlfriend and I spent a night at this wonderful bed and breakfast. It had breathtaking views of the local volcanic region. Location was just far enough outside of the city to be extremely quiet, but not too far away to be remote. The bathroom was amazing - nice roomy shower with powerful water dispersion. The toilet roll holder was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Robert & Gail would love to welcome you to your "Luxury home when you are away from Home." You will arrive as guests and leave as friends having enjoyed being thoroughly spoiled from the moment you arrive. Stay as long as you can - Taupo has so much to offer you, and we are so close to other cities such as Rotorua and the Hawke's Bay - so unpack your bags for a few days and relax and really enjoy New Zealand at its best. Our suites are luxuriously appointed and all are en-suite and have deck access. Join us in the evening for a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink before you head into town for dinner (we will even drive you in). Alternatively, and by prior arrangement, we can prepare you a supper, one or 2 course dinner, platter or special occasion dinner. Welcome to New Zealand,have a great holiday in paradise. ... more   less
