Peter and Nina made us both feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. The room and facilities were top-notch (with a welcoming platter and bottle of wine!) and the breakfast certainly amazing. We had a picnic lunch catered by Nina that was both delicious and expansive. This stay was just the restful tonic we needed. Highly recommended.

We have just arrived home after our long weekend away staying with Nina and Peter at the stunning Chalet Eiger, and we're already wishing we could go back and do it all over again. We celebrated my birthday during our stay and wanted to enjoy everything that the chalet had to offer including pre-dinner drinks, canapes and a delicious three course meal with complementary New Zealand wine and beer. Nina cooked up a feast for us, and both her and Peter made us feel so special and comfortable in their space. They are genuinely caring hosts and enjoy being around their guests, which was a wonderful addition to our trip. They went above and beyond for us, making us feel like family friends. We borrowed their electric bikes to cycle around the huge Lake Taupo, and explored some of the little bays dotted around Acacia Bay. A great location, a beautiful surround and delicious homecooked food. Highly recommended.

We recently had a quick break away from our busy business life. Peter and Nina made us very welcome and were the perfect hosts. The standard was above our expectations and we'd certainly recommend a relaxing few nights at Chalet Eiger to anyone wanting a peaceful quiet location away from it all.
