Gail and Robert's home is conveniently located about 10 minutes from downtown in a beautiful peaceful area. Their home and our room was so very large and welcoming. We loved the decor, a very unique style that was cheery, colorful and felt homey and warm. Everything was spotless and Gail has thought of every detail. There is a small kitchenette...

The hosts Gail and Robert are wonderful...

Lovely house! Gail was really helpful and nice company during breakfast along with another couple that was also staying at Kauri Point! We definitely relax and enjoyed! The breakfast was something delicious and cooked fresh for us! What you need more? 😜 If you pass by Taupo you should stay at Gail's

We stayed at Kauri Point for one night for our Anniversary. Gail & Robert were very welcoming & Buston too. We enjoyed our evening meal and watched the rugby with the other guests, Robert & his son. We stayed in the Aratiatia room, which was lovely and the bathroom was great, very tastefully done. The surroundings were lovely and well...

We stayed at Kauri Point for just one night, and wished we had stayed for a few days. The property is stunning!. The deck off our bedrooms was so inviting despite the cool weather that I sat out for a few minutes enjoying the country sounds and smells. Our room was fabulous and spacious. Excellent bed, good seating area in...

My wife and I so much enjoyed our opportunity to have breakfast with Gale and stay at this great B&B. What an awesome host. Being animal lovers we couldn't help but fall in love with Buston, the family dog, as we enjoyed the great accommodations.

We were the first couple staying in the Aratiatia bedroom which had been renovated just before our stay. The bathroom is brand new, very high quality construction, with an enormous bath and a big shower, great to relax. The products in the shower are also of high quality. The carpet had been changed as well. The bedroom and the house...

Kauri Point was just lovely. Fabulous surroundings. Very friendly and relaxed but good attention to detail and foreseeing possible needs of guests. Great location - very close to Lake Taupo with its views and surrounding landscape. I would definitely stay again when back in New Zealand.

We stayed here for the Round Taupo race last year and I just cant find fault. The hosts were so lovely and accommodating, the room we stayed in was immaculate and very cosy, the property was a rural dream and our breakfast was incredible - cereals, toast, eggs, bacon, fruit - heaven. I would look for an excuse to go...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Robert & Gail would love to welcome you to your "Luxury home when you are away from Home." You will arrive as guests and leave as friends having enjoyed being thoroughly spoiled from the moment you arrive. Stay as long as you can - Taupo has so much to offer you, and we are so close to other cities such as Rotorua and the Hawke's Bay - so unpack your bags for a few days and relax and really enjoy New Zealand at its best. Our suites are luxuriously appointed and all are en-suite and have deck access. Join us in the evening for a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink before you head into town for dinner (we will even drive you in). Alternatively, and by prior arrangement, we can prepare you a supper, one or 2 course dinner, platter or special occasion dinner. Welcome to New Zealand,have a great holiday in paradise. ... more   less
