The Chalet is a modern house a bit outside of Taupo. You definitely need a car if you want to stay there. They welcome you with very nice details, for example a flag of your country (I am from Costa Rica, so that's impressive), a delicious homemade tea and cookies. The rooms are perfect, the beds are perfect, no noise...

My partner and I stayed at Chalet Eiger and were overwhelmed by the hospitality shown us by our hosts, Emil and Hea Min, followed closely by the succulent food and luxurious suites, which were completely without ostentation and yet every feature was just perfect- from the underfloor heating to the spa bath, from the beautifully executed lighting to the Finnish...

My husband and I recently stayed at Chalet Eiger in Taupo, New Zealand, and felt like family as soon as we met the owners, Emil and Hea Min.

We recently stayed 3 nights in the Chalet Eiger, using it as a home base to explore the greater New Zealand Taupo region. To jump right to the conclusion, we found this B&B to be absolutely perfect - the best we have seen in NZ. Thus if you are coming to this region and desire the absolute top in accommodation...

I was recently in New Zealand for a short holiday and was luck enough to find Chalet Eiger in Taupo. Having travelled throughout New Zealand on many occasions and stayed at the top lodges, Chalet Eiger I believe is far superior to most of the 5 Star lodges. It is set in Acacia Bay , a beautiful part of Taupo...

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Chalet Eiger. We were firstly greeted with a fantastic fruit tart created by Hea Min. The taste was so delicious, reflecting Hea Min's obvious superb cooking, we rather wished we had arranged to eat at the chalet in the evening instead of in Taupo itself as the restaurant we picked in the...

Lake Taupo is beautiful, but Taupo accommodations can be a bit "touristy" -- Chalet Eiger is the ideal solution. Outside of the bustle of Taupo, in the decidedly more refined Acacia Bay, Emil and Hea Min have created a marvel of hospitality . . . impeccably clean rooms, charming hosts, an inspired Christmas dinner that featured fine food and a...

My wife and I stayed at Chalet Eiger for three nights including Christmas day; there is only one word that describes the whole experience ''FANTASTIC''.

My husband and I needed a peaceful trip away from hectic Auckland. Hosts Hea Min and Emil made our stay incredibly enjoyable. They tailored our menu to suit our preferences and spoilt us rotten!
