Thanks for the lovely review, Martina. However, I think there is a slight exaggeration here. My townhouse is at the top of a small hill, not a mountain (hence, the great views). Also, guests are welcome to drive up to load and unload (as you did). There is a concrete driveway which is approximately 15 metres and I’m always happy to help guests with their luggage if needed. Understand you were tired from all your driving, particularly your 6 hour drive from Taupo to my place - so perhaps a small hill may feel like a mountain. Also, I don’t speak German so the translation may not be that accurate. Either way, I just wanted to clarify this point. Thanks again for your stay. It was lovely hosting you, and all the best for your travels.
