  • 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 location with full views over the lake. Very clean and tidy house. Easy walk to the lake, which is great as we took our little dog. Fully fenced back yard, although our dog did manage to find an escape place, as she does. Firewood provided was a lovely touch, on a chilly evening. Quiet neighbourhood. Friendly neighbours. Puzzles, books and tourist brochures are nice to browse through while enjoying the views in the sunroom. An enjoyable holiday

    chose bookabach instead of conference centre. view alone prompted this choice, was fantastic. Great way to start and end each day in lounge or sunporch with that view in front. Everything else great, a log fire adding to the ambiance. Would certainly book again and recommend to others staying in Taupo
