About our home

Our stunning home was built in 1968 and has since been refurbished with modern kitchen and bathrooms. Our home is located at Lake Taupo, which is the centre of the North Island, New Zealand. From our dining room, you have views of Mount Ruapehu (which is only a 1 hour drive away) and from our lounge, you have views of Lake Taupo (which is only a 5 minute walk away). We have a large section, suitable for a family, with a swimming pool and lots of room to run around in a safe, fully fenced back yard.


More about us

  1. We are a family of 4. Heath and Michaela got married last year in April here in Taupo, New Zealand. We have twin boys, aged 3.5 years, named Marlon and Roman Houldsworth. We're looking to do a bit of travelling as a family (for something different) before our boys start school. We love the outdoors and Taupo is like an outdoor playground, so we would like to find something similar that offers water sports, snow boarding, good food and fun things to do as a family.

  2. Heath works as an engineer. Michaela has worked as a buyer but at the moment is a stay at home Mum. Our twin boys are busy being boys and like the outdoors and adventure.

  3. We love the ocean, fishing, surfing, reading, travelling, cooking, New Zealand bbq's, spending time with family and friends and meeting new people.
