The stay was very comfortable, beautiful location and scenery and the owners, David and Heather were such nice people. Would definitely go back again.

Cottage Not as advertised
We stayed in the small cottage. It was advertised as two king beds but it was only one king and two twins. It is not suitable for two couples, nor us— three adults. It doesn’t have a view of the lake and is clearly geared for families with children. The interior sleeping space is cramped and not particularly elegant or serene. On the plus side, they had filled the refrigerator with great options for breakfast. We did not see the rooms in the main house which no doubt are the reason this accommodation gets superb ratings. This small cottage needs attention to aesthetics to be rated superb and the details of the sleeping arrangements need to be accurate. It needs blinds in the kitchen door and notes about location of the hair dryer. If they really want it to be superb, replace the opaque fiberglass roof over the hot tub so the stars are visible. We actually had to book another motel room to have privacy which the hosts knew. The hosts are lovely people and if they weren’t heavily involved in the renovations of their property perhaps we would have had a more positive experience, a more sympathetic reaction to our situation. My guess is the rooms in the main house are fabulous.

Hosts are incredibly accommodating, you’ll feel like you’re staying at a friend’s home, if your friends happen to own a beautiful home with a breathtaking view. Stars from the backyard almost brought us to tears, never seen anything like it.

Acacia Heights - a gem.
David and Heather were genuinely wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and their enthusiasm to ensure our stay was memorable was greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend staying in Acacia Heights and plan to stay more than one night to appreciate all it has to offer.

A gem in Taupo
Excellent hospitality! Matt and I absolutely loved the place. We stayed for 2 nights- good base to explore Taupo and areas of interest nearby. Breathtaking views from our bedroom and the beautiful living room. Very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Hosts David and Heather are super friendly and nice to talk to. We will definitely be back! Love, Irene and Matthew

Cozy bnb experience near Lake Taupo!
Cozy bnb operated by a friendly couple with only three units which makes for an intimate and personal stay (if you need absolute privacy this is not the place for you). The grounds are beautifully maintained with gardens, several different seating areas, and bonus of a jacuzzi tub which was the perfect location to stargaze with a glass of wine (though jets were not operational during our stay). Slept like a baby on the oversized, comfy bed. Would perhaps suggest window screens to keep out of the mozzies. Many continental breakfast options including croissants, toast, cheese, whole fruits, yoghurt, granola, etc. Good location to explore Taupo and Tongoriro National Park!
