Our home

This country home is spacious, beautiful and modernly appointed. It has 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed and two with large single beds. There is a separate external office with an additional double bed that overlooks the orchard. There is a very large newly renovated kitchen and dining area, where the family can dine and view the extensive gardens. There is a formal lounge and smaller entertainment room. It is a lovely and relaxing house to sit-back and enjoy a glass of wine after a day of sight-seeing. You can walk out from the back door into the many paddocks on this property and farm animals and a variety of native birds. We have high speed wifi and also a laptop for use if needed.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four who are happy owners of one cat, one dog and half a dozen chickens. Dale and I have been married for 25 years and are both professionals. We have two children, one 15-year-old daughter and one 12-year-old son, who are very much into their sports. We love to travel and take in the sights and sounds of different cultures and places around the world. We would love to experience as many adventures as possible as a family before the kids leave home on their own adventures.

    We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in New Zealand.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated in the Central North Island of New Zealand, this home is only 15 minutes away from Lake Taupo and 45 minutes from the Central North Island Ski Fields. Taupo offers a wide range of adventure and natural sight-seeing opportunities including para-gliding, nature walks, trout fishing, bungy jumps, assorted water sports, and many more. Only 5 minutes down the road you can find some of New Zealand's best mountain biking tracks and a cafe and glass gallery aptly named "Lava Glass Cafe" which is a personal favourite of ours. In town, there are great restaurants, cafes and shopping. For the more adventurous, the national parks offer hikes where the view is breath-taking, such as the famous Tongariro Crossing. There is a small airport in Taupo, as well as a capable bus station offering tickets all around New Zealand for cheap.

Only 45 minutes to one hour away is the cultural capital Rotorua. Here you will find geyser parks, Maori cultural experiences, Museums and theaters. Great food and shopping are also located here. We are also three hours from the Capital city of New Zealand, Wellington.
