About our home

We built our beautiful home six years ago on a fabulous site overlooking both Lake Taupo and the signature Jack Nicklaus golf course. Kinloch is a small village 20 km from Taupo, an all year round tourist destination in the central part of North Island. Kinloch has its own beaches and marina and is an ideal base to tour this part of New Zealand. It has two well known mountain bike routes, and two golf courses depending on your ability! Kinloch itself has a small shop and cafe/ restaurant but Taupo has lots to offer in small boutique style shopping, bars, cafes and restaurants. This part of New Zealand is close to the World Heritage Site of the Tongariro Mountains which offer skiing in winter and spectacular hiking in summer. Also within two hours drive are the wine regions of North Island and all the beaches. Using our home as a base, you can travel within 90 mins to the Waitomo Caves, Hobbiton, Rotorua Geothermal Attractions plus be within 15minutes of Taupo, one of the main tourist destinations of NZ. Both Taupo and nearby Rotorua are the best places to experience Maori Cultural traditions.
Taupo has its own small airport and also lies on State Highway 1, half way between Auckland and Wellington.
Our home is north facing with large decks and each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom. Guests have access to mountain bikes, kayaks and golf clubs. Our best evenings are spent having a barbecue, drinking New Zealand wine and enjoying the spectacular sunsets over the lake.
However, the best thing about using our home is that you could split your time between Kinloch and our beach house in the Bay of Plenty. This would then allow you to visit some of the best beaches, White Island and Mount Maunganui. Likewise you are able to travel to Rotorua, Hobbiton and Tauranga. Splitting your time as it suited you would allow you to experience the best of North Island New Zealand.
