I was warmly welcomed by hostess Mary. The room, on the first floor was very clean and cozy.The house is close to the road and you can experience some traffic noise. I had little trouble with this myself. The breakfast was great and I enjoyed the hospitality of Mary and her mother. The house is located in Acacia Bay, just 5 minutes from Taupo.The lake and a restaurant are within walking distance.

We stayed one night at Mary and Ian’s. We had our two separate rooms. Rooms were impeccable. We loved the themed rooms. Breakfast was yummy especially with home made fejoa jam and relish. A real familial atmosphere. We will come back and highly recommend. Top class

We had 3 beautiful nights at the loft. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast left nothing to be desired. Acacia Bay is 2 km out from Taupo, so a car is useful. We found Taupo to be quite central for visits to Rotorua and the Tongariro Crossing instead of changing the accomodation daily. Restaurant/Bar within walking distance. Short walk of 5 - 10 min through parc reserve to the lakeside to go swimming.

So stayed here for two nights and were most comfortable apart from the noise from the road outside our room but of course nothing can be done about that. Mary and Ian are a great couple and made us feel at home, we could not have asked more from the breakfast offered, it was lovely, and set us up for the day. The Acacia Bay area is lovely and there are some lovely beaches not far from The Loft.
