First rate B&B
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay at this B&B. In keeper Robin is a wonderful hostess. The accommodations are tasteful and impeccably clean with a number of well thought out touches that many in-keepers do not consider such as robes, fridge, kettle. The bed was very comfortable which we consider a very important consideration. Throughout our many world wide travels we have found saggy mattresses, lumpy pillows and shabby bed linens are more the norm than the exception therefore it was a real treat to enjoy an above average bed experience. The B&B is located in a very quiet, residential area with an amazing view of lake Talpo. The large decks set in a pretty garden provide a wonderful place to relax while taking in the panoramic view. Robin provides an outstanding breakfast. We would like to point out to guests that the town is about a 10 minute drive from the B&B. There are a number of places to dine in town. However we found the B&B so inviting that we enjoyed many quiet hours on the decks and would like to suggest that guests who want to luxuriate on the deck pick up some food and beverages. As a side note, the star gazing is magnificent.

Very good 8.0
Very nice place
Very beautiful location. Host very welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfast. The rooms are lacking of a place to put the luggage, we had to use the floor. Getting out of the parking could also be a problem if other cars are parked. The view are great and everything is impeccable

The moment we walked into this property it exceeded our expectations. Robyn the lady who ran it was just wonderful and nothing was we asked was a problem. The view was just spectacular. If you want a very private place to stay with a view this is the property for you.

This is a private vacation home that is converted into a B&B. It can only accommodate three guests (or couples). The view is a spectacular unobstructed view of the lake. The gardens are terrific and the back deck with the lake view is wonderful. The rooms are clean and modern. There is a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee and hot chocolate for the room. There hostess is very friendly and helpful. The rest of the house is terrific too. It is located about 5 minutes from city center. Totally safe and quiet. Private access to back deck. Off street parking. I would stay here again.

Wow. What a great experience. Robyn was AMAZING. Went the extra mile for us. And what a spread she gave us for breakfast. Lovely rooms with a great bed & lovely sheets. She even had chocolate in the fridge for us. We had a fab time sitting on her deck having a few drinks & she made us feel at home. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank Robyn

This is the nicest b&b we have ever visited, not only for its luxurious amenities but Robyn, the owner, went to a lot of trouble to ensure we saw the local sights, even driving us to Huka Falls. She was a complete angel in her care for us, making cold drinks. spritzing my face to keep me cool on a particularly hot day. Serenity on Wakeman truly is a little bit if paradise on earth! And that view!!

Amazing views and hospitality
Robin was very welcoming and gave great hospitality. She was very helpful with ideas of what we could do in the area and had a leaflet on hand for anything! Robin has a lovely home with amazing views of the lake with a short drive to Taupo town. And the breakfast was superb. Would definitely recommend.
