Situated at the southern end of the settlement that still retains the character of the 50's Retro style batch will find our batch nestled in among beautiful Kanuka and other native trees enjoying privacy sun and lots of space which is ideal for the kids or for parking cars and boats.We are only 50 meters from the beach and boat launching spot.

Our batch has been recently renovated and repainted. It includes up to date appliances, gas cooking and a dishwasher. We have a large open plan kitchen, dining and family room which is great for entertaining. We can accommodate 2 families and have a separate bunkhouse with its own bathroom. Many days are spent on the deck watching the kids or sipping on a glass of wine or if its cold relaxing in front of our fabulous fire. Our wood sheds always stacked with beautiful wood so don't be shy.

Hatepe is approximately 20 minutes from Taupo and 20 minutes to Turangi with the ski-fields a further 40 minutes away. The fly-fishing in the Hinemaimai River is some of the best with arguably some of the biggest trout in Taupo coming from this river, We have all been smashed by them but can confirm that some have come to the net just look on our wall, I may even share a secret spot or two, and the harling and trolling from the boats is brilliant right out front.

All year round there's plenty to do, walks, runs up the river, mountain biking, fishing, Sika deer hunting or just relaxing and listening to the amazing bird life that surrounds us this is a fabulous place to come for a relaxing weekend, holiday or a romantic getaway.We have brought all of our kids up holidaying regularly in Hatepe and have always felt that its a very safe and caring environment. Hatepe truly is a very special place so come and share our family batch and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

  • We really enjoyed staying at this family bach

    We really enjoyed staying at this family bach. Hatepe is a great location being so close to Taupo and Turangi. We explored in both directions. The bach is well equipped and warm. It is handy to the lakeside, but sheltered and surrounded by trees. We were lucky enough to see and hear plenty of birdlife. Next time we want to try trout fishing. We have been inspired. Many thanks.

  • An absolutely stunning spot, a little slice of paradise

    An absolutely stunning spot, a little slice of paradise. The bach is even better than the photos, huge, big well equipped kitchen, love the retro classic kiwi bach feel, but yet still felt clean and spacious. Beautiful setting, nestled amongst trees and the lake at your doorstep. Cannot wait to go back, absolutely loved it!
