Beautiful location in a quiet rural setting

Pros: The private location away from the main hussle and traffic yet close to Taupo and wounderful restaurants.
A beautiful spot to rest after a great concert in Taupo with wonderful hospitality to match from Rob and Gail. Nesttled in park like grounds with an amazing outdoor area to relax and chat over a wine or two with the hosts and other guests staying. The oppurtunity to soak in a discretly placed outdoor spa under the stars if so wished added to the luxury. A beautifully furnished spacious room and onsuite to match.

Thank you for your great feedback we appreciate it very much. We have moved the spa pool to offer more privacy for those using it and are please with the result. You are so right - it is indeed amazing to be able to soak under the stars on a clae night

Superb !

Pros: The quiet and beautiful environment, stunning views, fantastic garden. Perfect rooms and comfort.
Cons: Nothing I can think of ...
Location: Taupo is close and offers a variety of activity in the lake, the thermal areas, hiking, ... We recommend to stay minimum 2 days to explore / enjoy.
We arrived to a perfect location, situated above Taupo with spectacular views and a fantastic garden .... The hosts are fabulous, they really made us feel welcome. We enjoyed every minute there. We could even stay for dinner, and can really recommend this. We have travelled the South and North Island and this place is certainly one of the absolute highlights.

Many thanks for your review. We appreciate it as always as it tells future guests what they might expect if they book to stay with us. We are fortunate that we are in a quiet rural area without any traffic of other noise, and yet only being a short drive into town. Many thanks Gail & Robert

Exquisite B&B

Beautiful house in a quiet but very accessible area near Taupo. The hosts are just wonderful and take the best care of you. We received tea and biscuits after arrival. Beds are extremely comfortable, rooms newly renovated, modern and luxurious. Breakfast was also very yummy. We'd come back any time!

It is very good to live, the hoster is very host my,the room is very clean. When u live there, u will feel very comfortable and nice, the lights is red, u will feel good. In the bathroom, the owner provider good shampoo and gels for wash. The bed is very big, there will have free coffee, Vedio, and books. Although the bathroom is small, and the address is not easy to find, it is still good place to choice to live.

Lovely Rural Retreat 5 Mins from Taupo

Pros: Really well appointed - room was very well done, all furnishings etc of a very high quality.
Cons: Nothing- just keep doing the same thing.
Location: Just out of Taupo- only a 5 min drive to town but not a house in sight when you get there. Too many things to do in Taupo to list.
Decided to try a B&B in Taupo as the hotels are all pretty average. Kauri Point was absolutely outstanding! When they say luxury they actually mean it- the home is beautiful- Robert and Gail have put a huge amount of effort and money into making the (huge!) house warm, comfortable and relaxing. As guests they were really friendly but never intrustive. Breakfasts were lovely and generous. If in Taupo again I'd have no hesitation in stating at Kauri Lodge.

Harvey thank you for taking time to write us such a great review. We appreciate it hugely. You are quite right we have tried to think of everything and have over the years been adding to the property to offer more space for our guests. Our recent addition of the huge lounge/dining room and covered outside seating has proved a real hit with our guests. At this time of year our central heating is a must, heated using our own supply of sustainable wood! We do hope you do return if you visit Taupo again. You will be sure to receive a warm welcome. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
