Having travelled extensively around the world, we appreciate the meaning of a warm, personal welcome - we look forward to offering you true hospitality here at Acacia Cliffs Lodge.
Adventures we have shared as a couple include owning and operating an Adventure Mountain Bike and Kayak Tour Company in Noosa, touring Europe for two years in a mobile home complete with motor scooter, bottling champagne with friends in Champagne and looking after a huge variety of pampered pets as “Animal Aunts” in the UK. In between travels and new ventures we have lived and raised our family in Taupo.
We look forward to welcoming you to our boutique lodge and to introducing you to this very special and unique area of New Zealand. Our travels have taken us to some of the most beautiful and exciting parts of the world but there can be no doubt that Taupo holds a special place in our heart - it’s a gem and one we will be delighted to share with you!
