This comment upsets me as this woman was extremely rude and abusive over the phone. She did not have a booking at my lodge however when she called to cancel thinking this was her accommodation, I genuinely mistook her cancellation for one of my clients who also cancelled at the same time (an honest mistake on my behalf). There was...

Lovely b&b with well loved gardens and peaceful views of the lake and surrounding countryside. We were treated warmly by not only Deb but by her host pets who greeted us when we arrived! Deb was a wonderful host offering the comfort of her home, tasty breakfasts, comfotable bed, and tips for activities. She even arranged a golf game for...

First Class! Private tennis court, world class golf nearby, Lake Taupo and Deb is a fantastic hostess! Simply the best! There is a large fireplace and sitting room. A wonderful billiard room and bar. Deb is very detailed in keeping her place spotless. Enjoyed it very much. Wonderful sunrise views too!

A very comfortable Bed and Breakfast place. Large home with a huge guest bathroom. One hectare (2.5 acres) of grounds. We only stayed the one night but would like to have stayed for much longer. Excellent service and a great breakfast.

The Acacia Bay Lodge is a beautiful house located about 5 minutes from central Taupo and has great views to Lake Taupo and Mount Tauhara beyond. There are beautiful gardens around the house and the interior is equally stunning. The bedroom was very comfortable with views onto the garden and the spacious bathroom was excellent. We only stop for one...

When we arrived we were made very welcome by Baxter, the resident minature schnauzer, swiftly followed by Deb and John who made us feel right at home. It's a beautiful spacious house in extremely large grounds in a quiet area just on the outskirts of Taupo. There is a shop and restaurant in walking distance and it only takes a...

Our welcome was not only by Deb, proprietor of Acacia Bay Lodge, but also by her attentive and loving animal family of a Scotty and 2 Burmese. We felt most at home in her gracious accomodations. We had a nice queen room which opened to the deck and had a grand view of Lake Taupo, The bath was large with...

Had a lovely few days staying at the Acacia Bay Lodge. Should have spent longer enjoying the beautiful garden but we were rushing around during our days to see as much as possible of Taupo and Rotorua! We thought that staying here was a good base to see both areas. Deb was very hospitable and relaxed and the dog and...

Not only are the accommodations and view fantastic, the massive back yard (size of a small farm) is perfect for the children to run off and play in. Wife and I hardly saw the kids (aged 7 and 4) as they entertained themselves outdoors. Felt like we had a baby sitter (Mother Nature) for free! Add to all that the...
