About the Property
5 bedrooms (4 with lake views + a children's room), huge patio
The dining table seats 8 comfortably, but with the addition of an extension table can seat 10-12. The views of the city lights at night from the dining room are spectacular. The living room has a lovely log fire (firewood in the garage). There is a wood fired pizza oven in the back courtyard, as well as a gas barbeque.
We are happy to make one of our vehicles available if desired, plus a men's mountain bike. We also have tennis rackets and golf clubs which you may use. There are community tennis courts across the road.
It is a 5 minute walk down to a lovely local restaurant which has a pizza menu, a bar menu and a full restaurant menu (it takes 10 minutes to walk back up the hill)! It is a 10 minute walk down to Acacia Bay.

Year Purchased: 2001
About: Rob is a New Zealander whose family vacationed at Lake Taupo when he was growing up. He spent 19 years in Austin, Texas and his wife Becky is from Austin. Rob owned his own marketing firm in Austin, while Becky worked in the mortgage industry. Before leaving Austin for New Zealand in 2002, Becky trained to become a massage therapist. Since 2002, Rob & Becky have hosted thousands of international guests at their boutique lodge. Rob also was involved in the establishment of the NZ Clean Energy Centre in Taupo and the establishment of the Association for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles. He enjoys fly fishing, music & hiking, while Becky loves hiking and being a massage therapist.
Why Acacia Bay, Taupo, New Zealand:
After 19 years in Texas, Becky and I toured New Zealand's North Island looking for the perfect spot to build our dream. We visited Taupo and were hooked. It offers everything we'd missed about NZ - a vast natural playground for hiking & fishing, fabulous golf, easy access to the Hawkes Bay Wine District as well as Rotorua and the Waitomo glow worm caves, and absolutely stunning scenery. We were most fortunate to find this property which offers 180 degree panoramas of Lake Taupo and the mountains, and purpose built the house and cottage to maximize the views.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We built this house while living in Texas. When we moved back to New Zealand to live in July 2002, we had not yet seen our completed house. My brother, who lived in Taupo at the time, had been project managing the construction for us. I remember opening the front door, stepping inside, and going 'wow.' The wood floors, the dramatic entrance lobby, the stonework, the hot tub, the views, the decor (we had a fabulous interior designer) - it all just blew us away. It is contemporary yet casual and the colors are very relaxing. It has a very earthy feel. And of course, with me (Rob) being a music lover, it has a great sound system.
