Gail and Robert were very welcoming hosts, and not only was Gail an outstanding cook but also a dedicated concierge, booking restaurants and outings for us. Her cooked breakfasts were delicious and artfully presented, and we enjoyed...

Thank you both for writing your review and for your very generous comments. We truly enjoyed your company and our evenings round the dining table. Our evening pre-dinner drinks are indeed a great way to meet our other guests and for us all to get to know one another. There is nothing better that sharing ones experiences of the day...

We were originally booked to stay for one night at Kauri Point, but as soon as we arrived and saw how beautiful it was, we decided to stay an extra night! Lovely location and amazing views. Gail & Robert were super helpful and their pets were delightful!

My daughter and I were blessed to visit this homestay B&B over the Christmas period for 3 nights, and we were so very lucky to share Christmas dinner with Robert and Gail, their daughter and 4 other guests. Gail is a gracious host and impeccable cook and it is obviously a passion. The chicken liver pate is to die for!!!...

We were on our honeymoon and this was our first BnB. Gail and Robert couldn't have been nicer to us, and the property was really good. Both of us had quite a lot of fun and the view from their porch is really good. The restaurants at Taupo were quite nice as well, and was definitely one of the points...

Our first bed and breakfast stay during a three month travelling trip and definitely one of our accommodation highlights. Gayle and Robert were extremely good hosts. Great to meet Arnie and Bustin their two spaniels too. Lovely rooms and a superb breakfast make this a highly recommended stay.

Thank you for your review - as always it is hugely appreciated. We are pleased that you both enjoyed relaxing in the spa pool.

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
