In the popular holiday haven of Acacia Bay, this is a great base to leap in to water/hiking adventures or to just curl up on the couch with a little Netflix. The lake is just around the corner (literally!) and there's much to see & do.

Your space is newly renovated with a kitchenette, yummy cereals, comfy extras like magazines, wifi and Netflix on request.
Your haven is 6 mins by car to the centre of town, 3 mins walk to the lake, 1 min walk to a local pub & store.

The space
The space is yours while you're here and is lovely and private so make yourself comfy! Our lovingly cared for studio is a warm, bright, cosy space and is perfect for two guests. We have a kitchenette with portable equipment that services your basic needs plus a little more (no sink sorry). The bathroom is a separate room just off the main room.

We live above the studio with the master bedroom directly above. Don't worry though, we recently had excellent sound proofing installed during some renovations so you won't normally hear heaps of us.
We take great pride in being great hosts and always strive for it to be a spotless and inviting haven for you.

Where you’ll be

Taupo, Waikato, New Zealand

Acacia Bay is an area popular with holiday makers. Our home is ultra close to the lake. It’s a few minutes walk around the corner! The local restaurant and convenience store is also a minutes walk away so everything's very convenient.
Acacia Bay is a little farther away from the main town centre which makes it a quieter neighbourhood but it does mean that you’d need a car or bicycle while staying.
We also like to note that we're on the main road in Acacia Bay. While it's a quiet neighbourhood you will be able to hear some cars passing by.
