Our romantic, secluded cottage is situated on a peaceful five acres, overlooking the Tukairangi Valley. It has a full sized grass tennis court available and is beautifully appointed among native trees. Lake Taupo is 10 minutes away, for a swim or fish. Also close by are golf courses, vineyard, horse trekking, mountain biking and thermal activity.

Avail yourself of the cosy, wood burning fire in winter, or barbeque on deck in summer. Enjoy your self-help breakfast 'al-fresco' on your sunny deck. This includes free-range eggs, bacon, homemade bread or provisions for continental breakfast as required. Alternatively, take a short seven minute walk down the quiet road to the cafe and view some local art. Fishing trips, horse treks by arrangement and ski fields only 1 hour away.

    Cottage was gorgeous with serene peaceful decoration to go with the location. Just the peace and quiet we needed. Lovely to wake up to bird song. Linen was top notch too!!!

  • This is one of the best baches we've stayed in

    This is one of the best baches we've stayed in. Secluded, semi-rural location, on the same property as owners but still relatively private. The bach has lovely, understated interior decoration and is the perfect size for a couple. Full kitchen and implements, and excellent log burner meant it was warm even when freezing outside. Very quiet, peaceful and secure.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Highland Cottage and it was a great location to get down to Acacia Bay, walk to the point and generally be away from it all! The cottage itself is gorgeous! Well appointed and well designed, we really loved staying here. A lovely touch with little chocolates on the dresser. We would highly recommend staying here if you're wanting to get away from it all. Loved the cafe down the road too!
