Gradwell House makes your holiday easy, it carries a relaxing atmosphere all on its own, as did the years gone by when simplicity was normal, a warm cosy fireplace for those cooler evenings welcomes you and even a piano waits for you to fill the house with sweet melodies.

Situated only 5 mins/.7km walk from the Lake you can take a stroll into Taupo township (4km) or take a long walk to 5 mile bay(6km).

The local shops are only 2 minutes away and consist of a dairy, hairdressers, fish and chip shop, bottle store, and a childrens park facility . Taupo township is only a 10 minutes drive away.

Taupo offers many options for every budget, from sitting and looking at the lake or walking to Huka Falls

to taking scenic flights.

We occupy the house at the rear of Gradwell House so are very handy if you require additional service.

  • Will definitely be back

    Will definitely be back. The house was tidy, warm and inviting. Plenty of room even with 10 of us we were not on top of each other. Coming home after a long day out to have beers and bbq on the deck was priceless

  • Handy location, good set up

    Handy location, good set up. Could do with a couple of updates like the dishwasher and maybe some newer cutlery, bigger coffee cups. Super cool retro vibes all the way through the place, lovely and warm as well.
