Description

Welcome to your family-friendly getaway with a difference!

Only 5 minutes to the beautiful Lake Taupo (8 mins from town and airport), our clean and warm cottage is perfect for your summer holiday. Separate from the main house, you can enjoy your privacy or we are always happy for a chat. Kids can roam our five acre farmlet, playing with our friendly pet sheep, chickens, ducks and Sid the rabbit.

Our cottage is perfect for couples of any age, groups of friends and families with kids. It is a lovely clean retreat, kept warm by a heat pump and the cosy sun that streams in the windows. Kitchen facilities include fridge, microwave, oven and stovetop, cooking and serving dishes and cutlery. We provide an assortment of teas and delicious plunger coffee with milk. The BBQ is also ready for you to use. (If you are really wanting to cook up a storm and the cottage doesn't have what you need, just come and ask.) The Haven Cottage is well equipped with linen, games, and some DVD's, and washing machine (with washing powder) and a clothes line. Free unlimited wifi is also available.

Come and relax at The Haven!

  • The Haven Cottage is our family's favourite place to stay in Taupo...

    The Haven Cottage is our family's favourite place to stay in Taupo - we couldn't imagine going anywhere else! It's such a relaxing environment where our kids could roam around safely and the parents could relax! The adults enjoyed completing a puzzle, sitting out in the sun (and getting sun burnt), reading books and crocheting while our kids explored the property, looked for eggs and interacting with the kids and animals!

  • The cottage is set in a lovely rural location about 10 minutes...

    The cottage is set in a lovely rural location about 10 minutes drive out of Taupo. The kids loved feeding the animals and there was also a swing for them to play on. The cottage is perfect for a family of four and in peaceful surroundings. We had a great four days exploring the region from here, highlights were Orakei Korako Geothermal Park, Tongariro National Park and the Whakarewarewa The Living Maori Village in Rotorua.

  • Our kids enjoyed the stay at cottage so much they wanted to...

    Our kids enjoyed the stay at cottage so much they wanted to go back the next day! So much more fun for kids & relaxing for grownups compared to staying in town (which was really a short drive!) Glad we brought kids bikes too!

  • Loved this little cottage and wish we could've stayed more than one...

    Loved this little cottage and wish we could've stayed more than one night to have more time to explore the property. Our daughter loved seeing all the animals (as did we) which was a great "little something extra". The cottage had a lovely set up that was light and comforting with all the essentials to help make yourself at home. Will definitely be back!

    The property was reasonable but a little further from town than we had anticipated. Otherwise our stay was enjoyable and peaceful.
