This must be the loveliest place to stay in Taupo. I cannot speak highly enough of our hosts, Phil And Cheryl, or the wonderful accommodation they provide. A huge investment in time, money, care and thought has gone into this Lodge and it certainly shows. The facilities are excellent, the view is to die for and there is a lovely...

A huge thank you to Cheryl and Phil for making our stay in Taupo a memorable one. We were upgraded to the Chalet which was huge and very comfortable. The studio units at the property also looked very cosy and comfortable. Sitting outside on the deck with a glass of wine and utilising the BBQ was much preferred over dining...

I was attracted to this accommodation by the excellent reviews it received from previous guests. While the location is not in the heart of lakeside Taupo, its elevation at Acacia Bay offers stunning views over the lake and the surrounding towns. All the previous comments about Phil and Cheryl's hospitality were spot on, and they were most welcoming and accommodating....

Phil and Cheryl were ideal hosts during our stay here - very welcoming and helpful. The views from the property, including the communal lounge area, were out of this world - can't imagine they could be beaten. We stayed in the studio room which was comfortable. Highly recommend this place, we hope to be back.

The view. The accommodation. The food. The gardens. The hosts. A most exceptional package that does not disappoint and merits what everyone has to say. It needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated. And you will want to return. Kiwi hospitality at its finest.
