You will want for nothing during your stay here, with a fully equipped kitchen and a BBQ on one of the two private decks, great for entertaining set in massive gardens that look over the mountains.

Entertaining is what this space was made for with open plan living and indoor/outdoor flow and a modern kitchen with all the mod cons.

The master bedroom has a queen and has double sliding doors leading out to a deck, with views of the surrounding area. The bathroom has a shower and a bath to soak in.

On the lower level of the two storey complex is a separate apartment 'The Roost' that may have guests staying from time to time. (this is not a stand alone property)

It is just a 40min drive to the mountain, hire shops just round the corner. Every thing is on your door step, Hot Pools after a long day up the mountain to relax those aching muscles.

Summer Sports

Swimming, boating, water-skiing, canoeing and fishing are just a few things that you can take part in on the lake.

There are some amazing walks, including the world famous Tongariro Crossing.

  • Property had been rented longterm and although we were told it had...

    Property had been rented longterm and although we were told it had been cleaned the property was filthy. Greasy dirty cupboards, windows and a used cotton bud on the floor in the bedroom, exposed wires. One bed was advertised as a king, both beds were double. Fire pit was not part of the property which was very disappointing, very little firewood only enough for one night, and was not delivered the next day as promised. We were very disappointed and will not stay again.

    Great comfortable well appointed accomodation. Close to enough to Taupo and the ski field that no matter the weather there is plenty to do and see.
