Deb is so welcoming and gracious and her home makes the perfect setting for a B&B. My huband and I stayed here in May 2015 as part of the last leg of our 5-day trip through the North Island. Even though we were several hours later than we expected, Deb was very understanding. The room had a very comfortable bed...

Very comfortable accomodation close to town centre. Very friendly couple who were full of advice regarding what to see and do in the area. Reasonable restaurant within walking distance along with basic shops.

Deb has a beautiful home which she enjoys sharing with her guests. Malcolm and I were made to feel extremely welcome. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, yoghurt, muesli, croissants, ciabatta and toast. We loved spending evenings with Deb and Martin, watching Australian Masterchef - we missed the end - who won? Thank you so much for all the advice...

We stayed 2 nights with Deb and found the whole experience to be excellent. We had a double room with a separate private bathroom, both of which were spotlessly clean and well appointed. The room led directly onto the verandah, which is where we were able to have our breakfast both mornings in glorious sunshine with a view to Lake...

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful B&B which is just outside Taupo in Acacia Bay. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the flowers and grounds only add to the experience. Deb was a great host and supplied us with a super breakfast in the mornings. Good recommendations for dinner, the pub at the bottom of the...

One of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at. Room was great with a stunning view. Deb is an amazing host and is so friendly and makes you feel like you are part of the family. She gave us great places to visit in the area that made our trip really special. If you are staying in Taupo this is...

I stayed about six days with Deb, and it was more akin to visiting friends than staying at a B&B. The room, the views, the overall size of the property, and her dog Baxter were sensational and only matched by Deb's charm and sense of humour. I could not recommend this place more, it was a fantastic experience and such...

Deb, the owner, was very gracious and "over the top" during a recent stay in Taupo for a golf holiday! I stayed here before and I will stay here again since in my opinion it's the best available especially since the Wairakei and Kinloch GC are closeby. By the way, Deb has a 14 handicap so is very informed of...
