Located near the shore of Lake Taupo, this iconic, luxurious Mediterranean styled Bed & Breakfast has 2.07 Hectares of lawns, gardens and fields.
Five spacious and exquisitely re-decorated ensuite rooms, three with Juliette balconies, are available for guests.
These suites all have excellent views of the bush clad Mt Tauhara and the gardens. (The hosts have their own well-appointed apartment on the ground floor)
Also, on the ground floor the large modern kitchen is perfect for preparation of breakfasts for the guests. It has direct access to the spacious formal dining room at one end and is also open at the other end to the adjoining family cum dining/lounge area used by the owners for their personal use when there's a full house.
The formal dining leads to the formal lounge with its enticing fireplace inviting repose perhaps after a day's skiing, or exploration of Taupo's tourist attractions. For summer days the conservatory and sun-drenched patio are ideal for relaxation after tennis, a swim in the pool or a stroll about the charming gardens.
This is truly an outstanding property, a class above in Homestays.
