Plum Tree Studio is a great base for a Taupo holiday or weekend getaway. Centrally located in an established area close to Lake Taupo, within walking distance to shops, cafe, gelato cart and hot water beach. Easy parking on-site, separate building with own entry porch, Plum Tree Studio is a home-away-from-home. Fully furnished with original pieces, original artwork and indian fabrics, the spacious retreat is full of character.

Set in a private garden with herbs, flowers, a giant plum tree and apple tree, the birdsong is glorious. There are two friendly house cats who love a pat but aren't allowed in the studio. We live nearby so if there's anything you need, we are just a phone call away.

Lake Taupo is a beautiful place with lots of activities to do and sights to see. Try the amazing day walk Tongariro Crossing over the volcanoes, Huka Falls, fly fishing, Riverside Markets, bush walking, visit Lavaglass gallery and our many cafés.

Special conditions: No smoking venue, no shoes in the studio (leave ALL shoes on the porch please)

    Close to town, cosy and our favourite place we stayed throughout our entire trip through NZ.

  • Perfect for our needs

    Perfect for our needs. We were just staying one night, to break up our long drive. The studio is lovely, a gorgeous space, very light and airy, the grounds have a lovely cottage garden feel to it. If you need a dark room for sleep, I wouldn't recommend it in summer. In saying that, we fell asleep with no problems, comfy beds and super quiet area.

    Beautiful little 'homey' place, the place was in immaculate condition and even had so many utilities and items like cutlery, soap/shampoo and even a tiny fan to beat the heat! Location is great for touring Taupo as its fairly close to Taupo town (5 min or less drive) so ideal for everyone!

    Pleasant accommodation. Would suggest an ironing board and iron in the place.
