This spacious home is conveniently located in a quiet cul de sac just a short walk to the Lake, local shops and restaurant. The Umpires Retreat provides a perfect base to explore the region with Taupo town just 5km journey.

The lounge, kitchen and dining area are open plan with a log fire for cozy winter stays. The lounge open out via french doors onto a large covered courtyard with outdoor furniture and BBQ, perfect for those summer days and nights when you just want to kick back and relax. There is a well fenced lawn at the rear (not a cricket pitch sadly) but enough room for the kids to play safely. The garage is available to store the holiday toys, and you can park a boat on the drive in front of the garage.

  • Thought the place was great

    Thought the place was great. Loved the in door out door flow. Was great for group. Would definitely stay again and recommend to everyone. Very clean and tidy.

  • Everything in the house you need

    Everything in the house you need. Extensive record collection but pretty crappy stereo. Outdoor area needs to be made more secure as my 1 year old could walk between gatepost and house and get on driveway. Good value for money. All in all a great place to stay but should make the back area completely secure for keeping the young ones safe.
