  • Wharewera is a classic older bach with very modern facilities

    Wharewera is a classic older bach with very modern facilities. Great location with plenty of space. Set on a hill above Lake Taupo the views are magnificent. A deck at front overlooking the lake was perfect spot for predinner drinks as we watched spectacular sunsets and the vast lake stretching out in front of us. Highly recommended.

    Great location set back from road noise but with great views of the lake. A short walk to waters edge and 12 minute drive to Turangi. Very nice to have use of new shower room and toilet. Separate bunkroom great for having extras to stay or for a couple of familys. Plenty of seating in the main bach but no dining table. Would consider this property again in the future.
