Wharewaka Cottage is a self-contained cottage situated at the rear of a lakefront section at 57A Wharewaka Road, offering lake views and direct access to the Lions Walkway and loveliest beaches below. The historic building was part of Taupo's first motel being two units opened up to make a warm and sunny cottage containing all the comforts of home - perfect any time of year. It particularly suits two couples or one family because of its compact size. It is 10 minutes from the centre of Taupo, a few minutes away from Taupo Airport, Ploughmans restaurant, take-away and dairy facilities at Two Mile Bay, boat ramp and right on the local bus route. Walk, cycle or run all the way to town on the Lions Walkway or head out to Wharewaka Point for childrens' playground, panoramic views of Lake Taupo and spectacular sunsets!

  • A beautifully simple and cosy Bach for a family or two

    A beautifully simple and cosy Bach for a family or two. The beds were so amazingly comfortable and I had some of the best nights sleep I've ever had. Easy and relaxing walk to the lake along a communal walkway on the lake front, immaculately kept and a pleasure to take in the other amazing baches along the way. Two toilets was a surprise and handy. White goods in excellent condition, full kitchen with many extras, like condiments, and picnic ware. Highly recommend if you are wanting to relax A+

  • Gillian was very friendly

    Gillian was very friendly. I applied very late, and she replied in time and prepared the room for us. The house is not big, the facilities are perfect, four people live right, the front lawn has been to the lake, the children play Kayaks very convenient.
