Come and relax in our cosy, bright and secluded holiday home and fill your days with all the activities that this lovely area has to offer. If you fancy a run around bring your tennis rackets and your A-game and enjoy a game on the community tennis court. If fishing and lake activities are your thing launch your boat for free from the boat ramp and enjoy a day on the lake. There are amazing walks along the Hinemaiaia River and the fishing in the river is world famous. It is only 20 minutes drive to the thriving city of Taupo for a hit of coffee or a spot of shopping and Taupo is jam-packed with activities and attractions to suit everybody. Drive for an hour and you could be carving it up on the Whakapapa ski field.

At the end of the day maybe you fancy a wander down to the lake front to take in the majestic sunset or get the BBQ cranking, and enjoy a glass or two while sitting out on the fabulous big deck reflecting on what a great day you have had and what a beautiful place Hatepe really is.

  • We've loved staying at Gin Lane on two occasions

    We've loved staying at Gin Lane on two occasions. It's well-loved, well-equipped, and has great outdoor seating areas. The kids love the bunkroom. The house is private and well-located near the lake and walking tracks. We'd like to stay again..

    Loved it! Hatepe is a magic place, the house is nicely and newly done up, there are 2 off street parks, a sunny sheltered deck, and the bunk room sleeps 7!

  • The cottage was lovely, well-stocked (great cast-iron pan!), and well located

    The cottage was lovely, well-stocked (great cast-iron pan!), and well located. We very much enjoyed the Tuis and other birds singing in the trees, and the short walk to the lake was great. Wonderful location, wonderful cottage.
