Richard and I have lived in Taupo for the past 12 years. I am an Irish-Kiwi and Richard is from England. We have 3 children, 11 - 9 & 5 years old and feel like we are living in Paradise! We have both traveled extensively prior to settling down in Taupō and we love meeting new people, learning about new cultures and languages and foods from different countries and parts of New Zealand. We have built a strong support network of friends here in Taupō, Richard loves his job with volcanoes and earthquakes so we will be settling here for the long haul. Richard is a keen mountain biker and enjoys playing the guitar, our children enjoy climbing trees, playing badminton & reading and I enjoy drinking tea and eating cake. We love the outdoors, socialising with friends, playing together, going to the beach and eating fish and chips, resting and relaxing. We are excited to host you on your holiday, business trip, sporting event or whatever reason you choose our space to stay.
