We had a wonderful break staying at Heather and David's B&B - it was a beautiful peaceful and secluded spot. The room was immaculate with a massive comfortable bed and we enjoyed sitting in the Spa enjoying the incredible view of the lake. Heather and David were very friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. We took them up on their recommendations and had excellent day trips and enjoyed the restaurants and cafe's they suggested. I would love to come back in summer to enjoy their beautiful garden more and it would be a wonderful location for a big event as it has room for a marque with a beautiful view of the lake. Thank you so much for our wonderful visit

Stayed with a group of friends for a long weekend and loved the beautiful view from the gardens, relaxing and stargazing in the spa, and the super comfortable beds and rooms. David and Heather are wonderful hosts. Great location to get in to Taupo and explore the surrounds. I’m sure I’ll be back for another visit!

David and Heather are great hosts in their beautiful B&B accommodation with everything being luxury quality, where you feel comfortable and able to relax as they make sure you have privacy. I really enjoyed the hot tub spa, where the views are stunning day and night from in here, around the beautiful gardens and our Tauhara room. We were made to feel so very welcome by David and Heather who went over and above to make our stay a really memorable one for my birthday with a bottle of bubbles and a homemade birthday cake! Wow such a lovely thoughtful surprise! Our time at Acacia Gardens was fantastic, we loved our stay!

Heather & David are amazing hosts & the same can be said for their beautifully thought-out home. We had the Garden Room which was a very comfortable en-suite. For us this trip was to relax and get away so in between activities we would just watch netflix (as they have a smart tv with WiFi access) and then sit in the garden with a superb view from the Terrace. There are no cooking facilities which we didn’t mind at all but the kitchen is well equipped otherwise for tea/coffee and easy to prep meals. Jacuzzi was lovely as well. Location was perfect for us as it was away from the hustle and bustle of the main township but close enough for us to get to town with ease if we needed to. Very peaceful and very well kept grounds. Fingers crossed will be able to stay there again when we next visit Taupō.

We loved our stay! It was well equipped and exactly what we needed to enjoy our stay. Our hosts were wonderful and have one of the most beautiful gardens. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of hiking and driving and it was perfect. The view is beautiful and the amenities were great. We were up early and able to enjoy the sunrise over the lake. It was a perfect get away stay. Thank you
