“It's my 2nd time staying at Zita's place and it is an absolute dream. She included a heater this time as it is winter. I am always delighted by her beautiful home and thoughtful touches to make her guests feel special and welcomed.”
Welcome! My home is just outside of Turangi on the southern end of Great Lake Taupo and on the banks of the acclaimed trout fishing Tongariro River. A short drive to Tongariro Alpine Crossing, 40 minute drive to Mt Ruapehu, Mt Ngauruhoe or Taupo Central. Check out recent pics on Instagram @whiteandbluebnb :)
“Richard is friendly, gentle and d kind host, provided variety breakfast,, allowed us to use his washing machine kindly after 5 days on the road. No doubt that he is the genous host in our New Zealand trip. There are 4 people were sharing the only one toilet and bathroom which was difficultfor me. The heavy glass front door was making a lot of noisy while we were staying just next to the front door. People in and out late night and early in the morning. I must emphasize that Richard is a wonderful and warm host.”

“Absolutely beautiful, serene place. Loved the outdoor shower and bath, was definitely my favourite thing about the house. The log burner was amazing too, gave so much heat and loved all of the finishing touches whether it be the homemade treats or all of the great cooking facilities in the room. Wish we could've stayed longer but will definitely be back for sure! Let us know if you need a longer term house sitter to feed the chickens if you go away ;)”
