Enjoy a classic Kiwi holiday in our solid 1950s lake house. Built when Taupo wasn't much more than a fishing village, our bach now has sunny living, dining and outdoor spaces making it suitable for 1-2 families or a group of friends. 4 Bedrooms & 2 Bathrooms makes this comfortable for 8 people.

This magic spot will remind you of how Kiwi holidays used to be. Relax at home, head to the beach for safe, clean and quiet swimming, or follow the beach path to world famous fishing on the Waitahanui river. Sunset over the lake is not to be missed! We've even chopped some firewood if you want to enjoy a cosy winter evening by the fire.

Please note: Five Mile Bay is close to SH1 and there can be traffic noise especially during busy holiday season like Christmas and New Years.

Special conditions: Pets welcomed, just let us know when you book. Smoking outside only please (Don't forget your sheets, pillowslips and towels)
