Why Jan & Ian chose Acacia Bay
We love our house because it is private , large and rural but close enough to go to town whenever we is close to Whakaipo Bay , a beautiful peaceful bay. We are close to the lovely little LArte Cafe with lovely mosaics .we love our property because of its lovely surroundings .There is an acre of gardens and orchards , the whole property is surrounded by working farms ,trees and its own large wetland .
What makes this House unique
10 cars in the driveway with parking in paddock to be arranged. .It is a large house , beautiful garden set out for privacy and fun. It has decks on each side so you can sit outside and relax, have a coffee and watch the kids, or enjoy reading a book . The paddocks have horses, ducks , quail and many other bird. The 1 acre garden with fruit trees and flowers is a special place to relax. The night sky is so clear and open that a evening of star gazing at the Milky Way is a must .

Loved this property was secluded homely and such a big house! Such accomodating hosts too.
Loved our stay thankyou very much.
Lovely home, quiet and peaceful
We had a lovely time relaxing at the property. The kids loved all the games supplied and having the animals nearby. Definitely stay there again when we're in Taupo.
Comfortable for a weekend getaway.
Lovely setting but could not locate the BBQ as per the listing, and therefor not able to BBQ the meat we bought. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and will recommend this to friends.
Hi, The Bbq was in front of the house in the orchard ,where the picnic table and umbrella were,.we feel it is a really nice spot to chill out,
My husband had specially cleaned it and gassed it up,
We will move it back into the garden so it is more obvious for our next guests ,
Sorry about the confusion because a NZ B.B.Q out in the country would have been great experience for your students , Next time ,
A quiet and relaxing property with wonderful gardens
The Taupo Farm Villa is a character filled home with plenty of space for families or groups travelling together. It is has all the comforts of home and the added bonus of being such an interesting home with much NZ memorabilia. We found it excellent for our family group of five and loved the beautiful gardens, friendly horses and lovely quiet location but still close to Taupo and Acacia Bay for all your needs. Thank you Jan and Ian for sharing your special home with us! Highly recommended!

A beautiful old house with a gorgeous garden and wonderful trees in an amazing place
It was perfect for our retreat - comfortable, spacious, welcoming, peaceful. The house is lovely, warm, light and equipped with everything we needed.The beach at the Acacia Bay Reserve is quite secluded and uncrowded. The lake was beautiful and we swam there twice a day... the most delicious swimming ever! Thankyou Jan and Ian for making us so welcome, without ever intruding. We cannot wait to come here again.
Thank you for your lovely comments.I am happy that you enjoyed the peace in the gardens and surroundings . Whakaipo Bay is a special place which at times you can have almost to yourselves . The lake water is refreshing but a little bracing . Brrr. Thank you for your lovely card . Welcome back anytime .
The rural beach Whakaipo Bay is private and beautiful. A large sweeping bay which is great fishing , swimming and has the W2K bike walking track over to Kinloch .It is 5 mins away from our house.
The glow worms in a secret little known track 4 kms, from the house.Bring a torch , Ask me and I will tell you where to see them , A family nighttime adventure walk.
The wide open night sky with no light pollution gives a fantastic showing of the Milky Way. So exciting.
