We arrived earlier than anticipated and were quite prepared to park the car and go exploring prior to check in time. Sonja greeted us and would have none of this and immediately arranged for our room to be available almost immediately. The accommodation was on two levels with the bedroom and whirlpool bath (complete with a supply of lavender oil) on the ground floor and a kitchenette and lounge, with a balcony on the upper level. very clean and well presented. Sonja recommended a range of things to do in the Taupo Lake area and as a result, and with her assistance went on a number of excursions. Briefly - Evening boat trip around the lake and to see the rock carvings - excellent. Trip on the Rapids Jet - terrifyingly exciting. Visit to Orakei Korako geothermal area - This is excellent and must be one of NZ's best kept secrets. Wish we had stayed longer. Thank you Sonja and Michael.
To demonstrate how kind Sonja is - we returned home to UK to find message on answerphone from Sonja telling us we had left some possessions in our room - she is arranging to send them to us in UK .
