Elevated above Pūkawa Bay to enjoy breathtaking views of glistening Lake Taupo, The Green Deck is a spacious, traditional holiday home with a short private bush walk connecting you directly with the reserve and lake!

The open-plan living and dining room here at The Green Deck is drenched in natural light thanks to picture windows that allow the stunning lake views to steal the show. Comfortable furnishings, exposed beams, and a wood burning fireplace give that cosy lodge feel, while a TV with Freeview and Chromecast, and complimentary WIFI, are on hand to keep you entertained and connected.

Open up the doors and create seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto the deck. Glass balustrading ensures unobstructed lake views, and an alfresco dining setting is perfectly positioned to soak up all that beauty as you enjoy a delicious meal prepared in your well-equipped kitchen. Or why not spark up the BBQ and enjoy all your favourites hot off the grill!

With options of the private bush walk, or a short walk or drive down the street, to the lakefront, you'll have ample opportunity for long beach days and outdoor games. However, we won't blame you if you spend most of your time on the deck! And if the weather calls for a day indoors, you can head downstairs to the rumpus room for a game of pool. There’s also a sheltered deck and another dining space down here, offering lots of different places to retreat to.

Between the three bedrooms and rumpus room, the house sleeps up to eight guests, with two bedrooms and a full bathroom (with the convenience of a separate toilet) upstairs offering the perfect setup for a small family. An additional bedroom, bathroom, and a bonus set of bunks in the rumpus room complete the setup for your stay.

Here at The Green Deck you’re not only in a great spot to capture stunning views of the lake, you’re also only 100m from the water itself! Enjoy lake activities and world-class fishing, or why not check out the great walking and cycle trails in the area. If you fancy an adventure further afield, Tongariro National Park and the slopes of Whakapapa are just a 45-minute drive away, as is Taupo with its abundance of activities on offer.

If you need to top up on supplies or fancy a coffee and a bite to eat, you’ll find Turangi 15 minutes drive away, or why not take the 20-minute bush walk to the Omori Store!

Enjoy the lake access and more space than you’ll know what to do with, then immerse yourself in the sunshine, birdsong and epic views – from The Green Deck.
