This property is about 3 miles from Taupo, that's no problem. It's a fabulously well appointed Bed and Breakfast. The bed was so comfy and crisp , fresh cotton sheets felt like an indulgence. The room was huge, with doors directly onto decking. Bird song was a wonderful way to be woken up with. Lovely breakfast too. One of the...

Situated a short drive from the town at Lake Taupo, Kauri Point is a tranquil haven of luxurious accomadation combined with a warm friendly atmosphere created by hosts Gail and Robert. On our short tour of NZ, in which we stayed in a range of accomadation, this was our favourite.

Staying at Kauri Point was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. The hosts, Gail and Robert, could not have made us feel more at home. They answered all our questions, visited with us during meals, included us in an evening of watching cricket and could not have been more welcoming. Our room was spacious and the...

A great welcome at the door with an offer of refreshments. Gail is a very friendly host. Our room was lovely. We had dinner there and enjoyed Gail and Robert's company at the table. Conversation was relaxed and also informative.

Again we were blown away by such beautiful accommodations. Spacious, comfortable and clean. Our hosts Gail and Robert were a wealth of information about the area as well as agriculture in New Zealand. Breakfast was top notch with homemade jams and the BEST COFFEE ever. We loved the breakfast conversation with the other guests. We also loved that it is...

You will love Kauri Point. The accommodation is top-notch and hosts Gail and Robert very friendly and attentive. Do stay in to eat at least once for the excellent dinner and good company. We really enjoyed the hot-tub, lying looking up at the stars!

Two nights of staying in this fantastic place, beautiful garden around, a little bit isolated, twenty minuts driving from Taupo. We met Gail, the owner. Very nice and energetic woman, that was very helpful, easy going and interesting. We had very good breakfast over there and could meet people from different parts of the world. Very recomended

We stayed here on the recommendation of our daughter who had stayed a few years previously and we were so glad we did. It's in a beautiful rural setting outside of Taupo and we were given a very warm welcome by Gail. The room was spacious, had a 6' very comfortable bed ( which I feel should be standard in...

We wernt sure when me and my partner would arrive, we were out in the wilderness with no wifi or Internet access to let Gail know when we were arriving. The greeting we received was a note on the door welcoming us to Kauri Point and that she was in the garden. Even down to the toilet what a lovely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Robert & Gail would love to welcome you to your "Luxury home when you are away from Home." You will arrive as guests and leave as friends having enjoyed being thoroughly spoiled from the moment you arrive. Stay as long as you can - Taupo has so much to offer you, and we are so close to other cities such as Rotorua and the Hawke's Bay - so unpack your bags for a few days and relax and really enjoy New Zealand at its best. Our suites are luxuriously appointed and all are en-suite and have deck access. Join us in the evening for a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink before you head into town for dinner (we will even drive you in). Alternatively, and by prior arrangement, we can prepare you a supper, one or 2 course dinner, platter or special occasion dinner. Welcome to New Zealand,have a great holiday in paradise. ... more   less
