Karapiro Willows is unique in that we offer the privacy of a hotel with the personal touch and charm of a country dwelling near the town of Cambridge NZ. The purpose built guest wing contains three separate bedrooms, one with a King bed and the other two rooms with Queen beds. They have comfy beds and each bedroom is furnished with its own private en-suite bathroom. Guests can relax in the private courtyard opening from each of the bedrooms. A delicious breakfast sourced fresh from local Cambridge growers is served in our sunny kitchen over looking the willow trees. There is something for everyone in our breakfast spread whether you need gluten or dairy free or vegetarian or paleo. Guests say they love our the vegetable juice we squeeze each morning and you can have it with a real ginger kick if you like! The guest wing has it's own entrance so you can feel free to come and go as you like without interacting with us. You will find we have plenty of off street parking outside the guest wing entrance.
As new comers to the Waikato area since June 2014, we absolutely love living at Lake Karapiro and it's so close to Cambridge, a picturesque town which we think is the pick of the Waikato! 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. Since our very first booking Vince and I have been totally blessed by the guests who have stayed with us and opened our eyes to their travels and diverse interests in local events.
Karapiro Willows Bed & Breakfast is a couple of minutes from beautiful Lake Karapiro, renown for swimming, speed boating, Kayaking, Water skiiing, wake-boarding, rowing and fishing. You may like to hire a Kayak from nearby at the Boat Shed or book one of their Glow-worm Kayak Night trips on the Lake. Karapiro is the perfect stop over while travelling the central North Island, strategically placed to visit popular tourist destinations. Hobbiton is a 20 minute drive over rambling farmland while Waitomo Caves and the wild black sand beach of Raglan on the West coast are both 55 minute drive away. The golden sand surf beach of Mt Maunganui is an hours drive in the opposite direction of the East coast. Rotorua with its mud pools and thermal areas are located an hour to the south. Cambridge town, beautiful with it's tree-lined main street, is only 6 minutes drive from Karapiro Willows offerings cafes, restaurants and boutique shopping. Cycling is big feature in the area with many cycle tracks to explore. Mt Maungatautari Bird Sanctuary borders Lake Karapiro rich with native NZ bird life.
