    “Great for large families.”

    Disappointed by the cleanliness of the home. Cobwebs, dirty windows, filfy bbq etc. I asked for a refund due to the fact i spend hours sweeping cobwebs off the cottage & house, plus cleaning windows. River great for kids to swim. in (supervised). Spa a bonus.

The property

Down a long, tree-lined driveway in the Broadlands Forest lies a hidden retreat, nestled on an expanse of land right on the banks of the mighty Waikato River - welcome to River Lookout Lodge. From the moment you turn into the driveway and approach this stunning property you’ll immediately feel on holiday. Beautifully manicured gardens lead you to the front door, welcoming you into a home where sophisticated styling meets cosy comfort; a match made in heaven. The light and bright living room here at River Lookout Lodge features large sliding glass doors, creating that all important indoor-outdoor flow. Sit back and relax with a book, watch your favourite TV show, or stay connected with the complimentary WIFI. A breeze flowing through will keep you comfortably cool on those hot summer days, while the heat pump and fireplace will ensure you’re toasty warm come winter. The fully equipped kitchen with its gorgeous vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and modern design will be the hub for your family or friends to gather here at River Lookout Lodge. Wake in the morning to a freshly brewed coffee from the Nespresso machine and perch yourself at the breakfast bar. Or, spark up the BBQ and lay out a beautiful spread of food on the indoor or outdoor dining table and enjoy a meal together. At the end of the feast, let the dishwasher do the hard work and pour yourself a drink. It’s time to take a dip in the hot-tub, and marvel at the views out over the leafy green yard down toward the river. Lay your head in comfort each night in one of the four bedrooms here at River Lookout Lodge. The master bedroom is truly a sight to be seen, with its huge picture window and luxurious leather chairs that will have you basking in the sunshine, getting lost in the view for hours. The main house here at River Lookout Lodge is complemented by a self-contained cottage, which retains much of its architectural heritage with pops of the same modern styling of the house. A cosy lounge, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, and full bathroom offer everything a couple or teenage family member would need for a private space to call their own. Located less than 20 minutes drive north of Taupo, River Lookout Lodge is an ideal spot to enjoy everything the lakeside town has to offer, while still enjoying a little slice of quiet, riverside paradise. Release your worries down the Waikato on your next holiday, and let River Lookout Lodge do the rest.

As the property has direct, unfenced access to the river, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

The spa pool is not fenced but there is a child-proof cover on it. When the spa pool cover is off, adults should closely supervise young children.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
