About our home

This is our holiday home that we built 20 years ago. Our family all enjoy being here together. It is a warm comfortable home with a great indoor outdoor flow with a large deck which is great for family activities and where you can hear the bird life. The home is fully carpeted with an open plan living room/kitchen, a master bedroom with king size bed, a second bedroom with queen size bed and a third bedroom with 2 single beds. We love the peace of the area.


More about us

  1. We are a married couple, Atholl and Rae who are approaching retirement. I am an accountant who works currently in a High school as the Bursar. Rae is a Bank Officer. We have a grown up family and 3 grand children, all of who enjoy staying at our holiday home. We have enjoyed the opportunities the environment has given us as a family to enjoy trout fishing, water skiing, walking, and snow skiing. I enjoy overseas travel and Rae is now keen to share these experiences. We enjoy being outside in the garden and with the family. We are now keen to explore some other areas of the world. The exchange could be non simultaneaous. We have not exchanged before but are keen to live with the local people as the locals do.

Situated a 5 minute walk to Lake Taupo, the largest fresh water lake in the Southern Hemisphere. Trout fishing, sailing, water skiing and swimming are features of the popular activities on the lake.

The local village of Turangi is a 15 minute drive where there is an excellent Visitor Information Centre, bus station, and the usual small village shops. There are a number of quality resturants around the village. The area attracts many tourists while where we live is quiet and peaceful.
