Style Notes

Bright and breezy. This stunning home with spectacular views on the shores of Lake Taupo is indoor/outdoor living at its finest. Oversized sliding doors can open the entire side of the house into the outdoor living spaces for fresh breezes and year-round sun, and the central wood-burning fireplace warms up the hearth and home in the winter. Soothing colors, fun tile details, exposed beams and barnyard doors add unique character and designer appeal. We love the large scale photography and luxurious outdoor stone tub and shower.

We are a young family of 5, our son Raphael is 5 years old, our daughter Lilou is 2 years old and our youngest son William is almost 1. We built our holiday house to suit our family needs and to create fond memories for our growing family. We live in Hong Kong for the moment and we love traveling, eating and sharing life fun moments with our amazing friends from all around the world! My husband is a Kiwi and I'm from Belgium, interesting mix of culture and we wouldn't want it any other way!
