My husband, Simon (builder), and I (teacher), are in our early 30s and have been married 2.5 years.
We absolutely love living here in Taupo and take pride in promoting its beautiful scenery and attractions to friends and local tourists. We are very active people who like to stay fit - always training towards and getting involved in a number of the local multi-sport events, including Ironman NZ, Taupo 70.3, the half/full marathon events, great lake cycle challenge and more.
We bought our home in March, 2016 and have been doing small renovations when we have found the time to do so. There is still some work to be done, however we're keen to showcase the rooms we have completed and available for hosting guests.
Simon and I are keen travelers, our latest trip was 7 weeks around UK/Europe in 2015, and we look forward to hitting the US later this year.
We have a tabby cat, Fez, who is 1 year old and very lovable. However, he can be very shy around new people and may take a day to warm up to you.
If you need any help with your travel plans or advice on what tourist attractions to hit around Taupo or NZ we will be more than happy to help.
