Your Hosts : Robyn and Vince

As new comers to the Waikato area since June 2014, we absolutely love living at Lake Karapiro. Hospitality has always been a passion of ours, running Karapiro Willows Bed and Breakfast has opened up new opportunities to share our lives with other people.
The Lake, we soon discovered is a very busy place with Rowing, Water -skiing, Wake-boarding, Powerboat and Waka competitions, and not to mention the Domain which hosts Waitangi Day, Classic Car and Anzac day events.
Since our very first booking last September we have been totally blessed by the guests who have stayed with us and opened our eyes to their diverse interests in a myriad of local events.
We have been enthralled by the stories of guests who have ...
  • delighted with a cycle on the Te- Awa Cycleways
  • been excited by their rowing endeavors on the lake
  • attended weddings at beautiful Sarnia Park, The Boat shed and The Red Barn
  • found the glow worms fascinating on the night Kayak Tours on the lake and the bird life at Maungatautari Sanctuary on day and night tours
  • indulged themselves at the Great NZ Food Show and have been totally amused at the delightful Equestrian events at Mystery Creek
  • explored the Blue Springs at Pataruru
  • visited the fascinating Hobbiton movie set.
