My name is Sylvie and my husband is Dan. I'm Belgian and Dan is a Kiwi. We have 3 kids aged 2/3 & 6. We love outdoor activities and having quality time with families and friends. We are very social and love to organise dinner parties (especially at our place in Taupo!), we have been living in Hong Kong for 10 years and love the excitement of this great city. However our favourite moments in our lives are based in Taupo, our sanctuary!
SylvieK6 purchased this Villa in 2015
Why SylvieK6 chose Acacia Bay
We built this house a few years back so we can escape Asia and have an amazing space to be reunited with our kiwi family & friends and also to show our kids what a great lifestyle New Zealand has to offer!

We loved our stay. It was perfect for our multi-generational family. The house is incredibly well designed, the walking trails down to the lake are lovely and the kids loved the playroom.
Beautiful House in Beautiful Acacia Bay!
We had an amazing stay in Acacia Bay. The house was stunning, well stocked, clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. My 2 year old was thrilled with the play room and all the toys. And my 14 year old and 11 year old were in the lake swimming every chance they got. There was plenty of space for our whole family to be comfortable. Sylvia was always quick to respond to text messages and very easy to work with. She gave us great recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area. We are counting the days until we can return to Lake Taupo!
stunning home, great for families or groups looking for a bit of luxury
Exactly as described and in the photos
This was an amazing place to stay! I would highly recommend it and would definitely rent again when we come back.
Thanks so much for the lovely review Jennifer. We love hosting you both and hope you can come back to stay again. Lots of love. Sylvie x
