While away the hours gazing out at breathtaking views of stunning Lake Taupo, all from the comfort of your spacious, two-storey Tuscan style holiday home. Welcome to Lakefront Villa!

From the moment you walk in the door here at Lakefront Villa you’ll feel an instant sense of calm and comfort. Your spacious living room features subtle furnishings that make the view the hero of the room, a TV with DVD player for your entertainment, and a gas fireplace for toasty warmth and cosy ambience on a winter getaway.

Wall-to-wall picture windows let in an abundance of natural light, and each feature a classic arch and wooden shutters to tie into the Tuscan style. Open up the glass doors and create seamless indoor-outdoor flow on to your fabulous outdoor entertaining deck, where glass balustrades ensure the lake views are unobstructed.

Prepare delicious meals in the fully equipped kitchen, or spark up the barbecue for a classic Kiwi meal hot off the grill. Dine alfresco on the deck, or head down to the lakefront pergola where a picnic table, bench seating, and an outdoor fireplace await!

You’ll absolutely love the large lawn for your backyard cricket and footy games, having a picnic under the shade of the nikau palm tree, or simply kicking back and basking in the sunshine. And of course, you’ve got the lake right there when you want to take a quick dip to cool off!

Ideal for a couple of families coming together for a lake getaway, Lakeside Villa has five bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a range of bedding configurations. Pet owners will also be pleased to know their furry family members are welcome outside here too!

Situated close to the crystal clear, free-flowing Waitahanui River, there are some fantastic opportunities for fly-fishing here at Lakeside Villa. Bring your rod along and give it a go, and you can even bring the boat!

If you need to top up on supplies or you fancy a coffee and a bite to eat, Taupo is just an 11-minute drive from Lakefront Villa. You can also find a great selection of shops and activity providers here too!

Your ultimate lake escape awaits here at Lakefront Villa!

Excellent sized house lots of room for big groups or families ,mod cons with a touch of older villa feel to set the mood with a view to die for of the lake right on your doorstep.beautiful stay

Stayed January 2022

Loved the property. Was a good fit for our group and the lake access was fantastic. Would love to see Wifi get put into the property, as we had a couple trying to work while they were there. Only negative was that there was only one rubbish bag sticker for a house that had 10 people over a 4 days stay.

Stayed January 2022

Loved the house, very well equiped kitchen and lots of seating in the livingroom and outside. Beautiful towels and sheets.

Stayed January 2022

A lovely big comfortable house, was suitable for our family of 6 adults and 4 kids. A well equipped kitchen, great comfortable beds and amazing big bathrooms with huge new showers.Only a short drive to Taupo township, right on the lakefront and lots of other places to explore.We would highly reccommend the house for your stay

Stayed January 2022

Would not recommend this property for the price we paid. It was dirty, musty and the area where the bulk of the bedrooms are was poorly ventilated. There were no umbrellas or shade sails etc. to enjoy the outdoor areas. We were greeted by a grumpy neighbor who asked us to make sure the kids didn't move the sand from the beach. (Our kids hadn't even touched it yet). For the price you are asking and the photos you have put up it is not value for money and the photos are not a true representation of the property. We have sent multiple emails regarding our complaints and have not received any response. We also made over 20 phone calls to your offices and no response.

Beautiful home - a great spot for friends/family to enjoy the lake! Great furnishings and room amenities. Remember to close doors/windows and turn the outdoor lights off in the evening as the mosquito bugs do go a bit wild when the sun has gone down! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Stayed October 2021

Property was well presented and perfect for our family stay. Great communication and our questions answered quickly. We would stay again.

Stayed September 2021

When we arrived the house was very musty, we would have appreciated if they aired it out the day before. There were insects on the windowsills and a cockroach in the bathroom sink. One of the doors wasn’t really accessible as there was an overgrown vine on it. Dishes in the cupboard were not cleaned properly and the ensuite shower was clogged as well as the sink having a green ring around the drain. There were lots of broken things around the house I.e vents not opening (there’s only windows in the kitchen) the garage door had to be held open as you’re driving in, there is a hole in the backyard filled with stinky water as well as door handles being broken and the bbq not cleaned. Overall it ended up being comfortable once we settled in and cleaned. Nice big house. Lovely bathrooms. Sheets, duvet and pillows were great quality. The property manager was nice and very responsive as we locked ourselves out and she was there within 2 minutes. Lots of space and a beautiful property.
