Kevin and Pon are incredible hosts. The homemade food was insanely delicious, the house was SPOTLESS and the grounds were beautiful. Me and my husband completely relaxed with our complimentary bold wine, comfortable balcony and jazz music playing all day long. They go the extra mile to take care of you. It's the only place to stay if you're in... More

I needed accommodation to attend the Summer Concert at short notice and chanced upon Chalet Eiger. It is a modern oversized home on the hill overlooking the lake, about 10 minutes from town. There are several large self contained luxury rooms with generous ensuites. The fridge has complementary wine, beer and soft drinks! They will even make you a cheese... More

What an awesome place to stay, the view is breathtaking, the rooms are spacious and immaculately kept. Our room had a great balcony with table and chairs. Dinner and breakfast was outstanding.

A beautiful property set in the lovely Acacia Bay, with glimpses of the Lake, Chalet Eiger is the perfect peaceful hideaway from the stresses of everyday life. But what's really special about this place is the warm hospitality from the Amos family and the amazing Thai banquet that we had for dinner! The rooms are beautifully set out, with comfortable,...

We spent 2 nights here under the hospitality of Emil and Hea Min. It was wonderful. We are a couple in our 60s from Sydney, Australia. The room was sensational and we mastered the lighting pretty quickly! Lovely touches like home-baked biscuits, some delicious NZ cheese and a bottle of chilled wine were there for us. I loved the music... More

Hea Min and Emil were superb hosts who went out of their way to make our visit relaxed and enjoyable. Our room was first class, and the Acacia Bay location was quiet and restful. Had a great evening with two other couples who were there and wound up exchanging details for further catch ups. Overall a strong recommend.

We have stayed in Taupo before mostly near The Lake which means great views - The Chalet is set on a height with glimpses of The Lake so a pleasant outlook without being stunning.

For a start Lake Taupo is a great destination. As good as if not better than Queenstown. Lake, scenery, activities and more. How better to spend a long weekend than at the Chalet. Food was fantastic.
