The property

This is it. That perfect base for your annual getaway with your friends where you can enjoy summer BBQs and waking up to a fresh cup of coffee and spectacular views. Welcome to Krissell Castle! An elevated position rewards this gorgeous property with simply breathtaking views of Lake Taupo, and the bi-fold doors off the cosy living room let you admire that natural beauty whatever the season. In winter, keep them closed and light the fire as you settle in with a Nespresso barista style coffee, and in summer, open them up for seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto the tree-shaded patio. When you’re not enjoying the view, Krissell Castle offers a TV with both Freeview and a DVD player, as well as complimentary WIFI, for your indoor entertainment. Or why not prepare a cheeky cheeseboard and indulge in a glass of your favourite drop in the sun drenched garden. Come dinner time, fire up the BBQ and get grilling! You’ll find everything you need to prepare delicious sides in your fully equipped kitchen, and once you’ve finished the dishwasher is there to take care of cleaning up so you can get back to holiday mode. Four bedrooms here at Krissell Castle give everyone somewhere to retreat to at the end of the day to recharge for tomorrow. Each with either a king or queen bed, all the bedrooms enjoy direct access to the patio and a lovely view of the garden. Two bathrooms, one complete with a soaking tub, complete the set up for your stay. Taupo town is just a seven-minute drive from Krissell Castle. Here you’ll find a plethora of shops and eateries, as well as activity providers who can offer lake sailing, bike tours, and much more. For something a little closer to home, wander down to the lake in just 10 minutes, and be sure to check out The Bay Bar and Brasserie for a bite to eat, also only a 10-minute walk away. For a relaxing retreat with lake views to get lost in, look no further than Krissell Castle!

Guests should bring their own Nespresso compatible pods to make use of the available machine.

While this property is pet friendly, only dogs are allowed.
