  • Amazing views over Lake Taupo and private sheltered back yard
  • Central location - walk to town, beach,restaurants
  • Lovely warm house- the perfect place to enjoy our great winter deals

This house has fabulous lake and mountain views and is just one block from the lake. With 3 bdrms and 2 bathrms the house is ideal for couples, family or friends holidaying together. Private and sheltered backyard area with gas BBQ and outdoor furniture. Wonderful sunny conservatory where guests can watch the action on the lake whatever the weather.

While we have "modernised" this classic "bach" by installing modern appliances and beds etc we have gone to a lot of effort to maintain the atmosphere of a classic NZ bach . Hilltop Views is not all sparkling tile and chrome -we hope we have created an environment ( house and garden) where our guests can really relax and perhaps even remember holidays past !!

For the safety of your young ones (or pets) the backyard is fully fenced. Easy walking distance to local shops /restaurants and a very short drive to Taupo township

Rates inc bed linen and towels and as long as you leave the property clean and tidy there are no additional cleaning fees. ( see spec conditions) If your stay is for 4+ nights and outside peak times, ask about our multi night discount. We will consider one night bookings depending upon other enquiries.. Off street parking for 3 vehicles.

In addition to everything Taupo region has to offer,Taupos central location makes this an ideal home to stay for a few days and make day trips to Rotorua ( one hour), Tongariro National Park ( one hour) Napier one and a half hours and Waitomo Caves ( one and a half hours)

A great log fire and radiators ensure a cosy warm house even on winter nights.

As Taupo is the "events capital" of NZ sometimes our peak rates will apply to weekends not normally recognised as "holiday" dates.

Pets ? please check with us first as although the backyard is fenced it is really not suitable for large or "adventurous" dogs.

We are now accepting credit card bookings but if you live in NZ and would prefer to make payment by internet banking please let us know at time of enquiry.

Special conditions: Rates may be reduced for stays of 4 nights or more outside holidays/special events To keep our charges as low as possible we do not have a compulsory cleaning fee. Please leave the property clean and tidy ( ie dishes put away, surfaces clean and house vacuumed). We do not expect guests to clean showers and toilets or do the laundry. If for any reason you are not able or do not want to do this basic clean we will arrange this for you for $50.00. Please check if you wish to bring pets

  • Great Bach/house, great location with spectacular views

    Great Bach/house, great location with spectacular views. A very spacious house with all amenities, we would definitely stay again as there was so much we didn't have time to do in Taupo. Thanks for being so helpful.

  • Fantastic location

    Fantastic location. What a view! A nice walk into town if you don't want to drive.

  • Excellent location and stunning views

    Excellent location and stunning views. Plenty of space and the secured back yard meant our wee dog could happily roam outside. Just a tiny bit cold, in the wee hours of the morning, in the master bedroom for my baby to sleep in (but this was a cold wet weekend.) In the evenings when the fire was blazing the house was beautiful and toasty. Would gladly come back in Summer!

  • Location was brilliant

    Location was brilliant. Beautiful views of the lake. The house was well equipped and clean. Only downside was the lack of wifi. Being from overseas, a wifi connection would have been appreciated!
