What a wonderful place to stay! Lovely spacious lounge room with sofa and full dinning table and chairs, huge bedroom and bathroom and magnificent views over Lake Taupo from both the lounge and bedroom. Cheryl couldn't have been more helpful, I was struck down with a cold and she turned up at our door with freshly baked muffins and lemons...

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.

Jaw-dropping views greeted us on our arrival at the hill-top setting of Te Moenga, a modern, rambling property overlooking Lake Taupo. We had booked one of the bedrooms, but Cheryl and Phil, our friendly and gracious hosts, informed us that since we were the only guests, they had decided to upgrade us to one of their chalets.
