About Heather Mackintosh
We have owned this property for 17 years and have had wonderful family holidays here which we are now enjoying with our grandchildren as well. We did an extensive alteration in 2016 which has allowed for much greater comfort, warmth and size. We live between Wellington and Taupo at this stage.
Heather Mackintosh purchased this House in 2001
Why Heather Mackintosh chose Taupo
I have been visiting Taupo since I was a teenager, and then my family also bought a house diagonally across Shepherd Road from where we are now. This particular area is great for sun and beautiful views, as on a ridge, but it is also on the town hot mineral belt so we can have our own mineral hot pool.
What makes this House unique
Secluded, quiet and romantic with large garden on two levels, wonderful lake and mountain views, exceptional sunsets and an indoor mineral hot pool. Easy walking to the lakeside with great walks, bicycle riding and scootering Our beautiful Botanical Gardens are up the top of our road with many bush, shrub and flower trails.

Wonderful weekend in Taupo
Lovely property, very clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. Small added touches which made us feel very welcome.
The house is beautiful, spacious and well stocked for cooking. The outside area is perfect for enjoying a meal with friends and the hot spa (which is inside) is very nice.
Thank you for your lovely review Meagan
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this property which was a real surprise. The house was very well appointed with all mod cons and beautifully designed kitchen. It was very clean and very peaceful to stay in. We would repeat our stay any time there when in Taupo. Thank you, Heather.

Beautiful home with gorgeous views
We loved our stay at the hot pool hideaway! The house was lovely— nicely decorated, spotless, and comfortable. Michelle was extremely thoughtful and welcoming. Having a hot pool in the house was fabulous, especially after long hikes. The views are also stunning. Our family couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The house is perfect.
Thank you very much for your lovely review, I really appreciate it. We do try to provide a high standard for our guests and the feedback encourages us to continue to do so.
We hope to hear from you again in the future
Beautiful property, stunning views, well equipped and very comfortable.

Thank you so much for your fabulous review Linda, I really appreciate it.
It seems you had fantastic weather over the period of your booking.
Lovely home and great location.
We had a wonderful stay here for two nights and enjoyed every minute. The house is lovely and the outside with the view and garden was very relaxing. The location is also very good for a quick trip into town or for taking a walk to the lake. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.
