Destination: Lake Taupo, North Island, New Zealand
We stayed in the Ruapehu Suite. Well appointed with a comfortable bed and amazing bathroom. Very quiet with stunning views. Peter and Nina were wonderful. They are genuine people and make great hosts. The food was exceptional. Being a picky eater Nina easily adapted her menu to accommodate me.
Beautiful scenic location away from busy roads and town lights. Nice dark quiet room. My husband was especially rapt that he could watch his beloved Australian rules football team play on the tv. Nice touch being welcomed with chilled wine and a cheese platter. Nina cooked the most beautiful breaky and was shared in good company with our other host Peter. Congratulations you're doing a lovely job. Best wishes we'll be back for sure.
