This unique purpose built Mediteranean style country manor is a short drive from central Taupo, the perfect place to stop, relax and discover the central North Island.

The wonderful panoramic mature gardens and surrounding mountains greet you as you enter the front gates into our idyllic romantic hideaway.

After a busy day sightseeing enjoy a refreshing afternoon tea on the sunny patio or relax around the salt water pool on one of the loungers with a glass of cool homemade lemonade.

We have four large, private,luxuriously appointed,upstairs,en-suite rooms,three with their own balcony,and all have wonderful garden views.

An invitation by your hosts John and Nancy to share a complimentary early evening refreshments while swapping travel stories with other guests is not to be missed.
