Architecturally designed and renovated holiday home offering privacy and a well-established treed setting.

Very comfortably furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped.

Great lake views from the upstairs balcony and a wide lake outlook from the ground-level verandah and BBQ area. Stable doors in the living area provide great indoor-outdoor flow - throw these open in the summer for a lovely cool house. The Metro wood burner very quickly warms the place when things are cooler. The section is fully fenced (a relative rarity for holiday homes) and provides safe play areas for the kids. There is off-street parking for a boat and a 2-3 vehicles.

A tennis and petanque court are just down the road, with a park and children's play area almost opposite. A 10 minute stroll gets you to a great cafe near the Motuoapa marina.

Motuoapa is perfectly positioned for everything that the Taupo district has to offer. Easy access to fishing (boat ramp at the marina for the lake, and a few minutes drive to the Tongariro, Tauranga-Taupo and other great rivers), water sports (ditto the marina) and lake beaches. It is a 10 minute drive to Turangi and shopping (including a great New World), 15 minutes to the thermal pools at Tokaanu, 25 minutes to the bright lights of Taupo itself and 40 minutes or so to National Park and the slopes of Mt Ruapehu.

Special conditions: Two night minimum stay. Pricing based on typical occupancy of 6 - 8. Please let us know if your party is less than 6 or for rentals of longer than a week.

  • Perfect house to stay and location was great

    Perfect house to stay and location was great. With the new Marina our boating was super easy with the upgrade of the boat ramp.

    Our group of 7 from Australia thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay in your beautiful house. The decor is lovely and homely, and the house well equipped and clean. The location is quiet and peaceful and close to the lake. We went white water rafting on the Tongariro River and sailing and fishing on the lake. The location is a bit of a drive to Taupo but the drive is very picturesque. The nearby township of Turangi had everything we needed for a three day stay. Highly recommended property.

    This is an awesome property and was perfect for our family of 5 adults and a child. The toys were perfect for our 2.5 year old son and it was a safe environment for him. The house is very well equipped with comfy beds. We will be back!

    Lovely home and fit us all in easily. Kids had plenty to do in the house and nearby and we did lots of easy walks down to the water. Would stay again.
