Warm and homely yet modern and stylish, Blue Velvet Cottage offers just the right balance and is sure to impress during your stay by Lake Taupo.

Vaulted wooden ceilings and exposed beams throughout, combined with thoughtful design and decor, create a restful atmosphere, perfectly paired with the lakeside surroundings and scenery.

This three-bedroom property is a true family-sized holiday home in central Taupo, perfect for your next family adventure. Yet it's so cosy it's also ideal for your romantic mid-winter weekend away. Light a fire, pour a glass of wine and feel right at home.

An open-plan lounge and indoor dining area easily flows onto the sheltered sundeck that looks across Titoki Reserve. In summer, that all-important outdoor living under the sun is right at your finger-tips. With the spacious reserve just through the gate, be sure to grab the available backyard cricket set or soccer ball.

Blue Velvet Cottage is situated in the quiet and peaceful suburb of Richmond Heights, that's only a short eight-minute drive away from the centre of Taupo. Taupo is the adventure capital of the North Island, so be sure to add a heart-racing activity like white-water rafting, bungy jumping or jetboating to your itinerary. Make sure to visit the stunning Huka Falls, Craters of the Moon, and the hot pools and spa park, all within a short 10-minute drive.

Waiting to host your fabulous stay - this is Blue Velvet Cottage!

We had a brilliant stay at Blue Velvet Cottage. Made very easy with this house. Great fire, house is beautiful. Our dog was happy at the back section and park to play. Location is prefect to walk back to the lake and we found Waipahihi Botanical Park too. We would love to return.

Great place close to town. Plenty of parking and room for the kids. Backing on to the park is great as well. Would definitely stay again, can tell the owners have been doing renovations and its all heading in the right directions. A+

Fantastic property, warm clean and tidy. So good being able to have our dog stay with us there too. The property has a lovely back yard, and a great deck with outdoor furniture. Inside it’s spacious and modern, with nice facilities. We stayed for 3 nights, and highly recommend it.

Great family/furfamily friendly property. Close to restaurants and activities. Wonderfully cozy on cold winter nights. Heaps of room for children and dogs to play, with a reserve behind the back fence and big fully fenced back yard. We all had a wonderful time, the kid and dogs didn't want to leave

Stayed July 2021

Beautifully presented house in a great setting. Loved having our dog to stay with us and the reserve on the back doorstep. Property manager Kim went out of her way to find a fireplace surround so we coukd safely use the fire with our 19 month old. Thanks again Kim, highly recommended place to stay.
