Immerse yourself in lakefront living with stunning views of idyllic Lake Taupo. Make the most of this beautiful location and enjoy a refreshing escape at the fantastic Waitahanui Lakefront Escape.

The house features a spacious living room with stunning indoor/outdoor flow opening out to the beautiful lake. On warm summer evenings, you have the option of alfresco dining with an unforgettable backdrop. Watch the sun go down over the lake and mountains in the distance. Prepare your meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, or spark up the barbecue for a classic meal hot off the grill.
Or for a toasty winter escape to the lake, Waitahanui Beachfront Escape has both a heat pump and wood-burning fireplace. Pour yourself a glass of wine and get cosy on the couch with a good book or watch TV (with SKY TV) for a bit of entertainment.

Ideally suited for large groups with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, there is more than enough space for the whole family to spread out and find their own space.

Situated close to the crystal clear, free-flowing Waitahanui River, there are many easy walking tracks including the famous 'Rock Pool' walk within a few minutes. Waitahanui is famed for its trout fishing so bring your rod and give fly-fishing a go. Also, the Whakapapa Ski Field is just a 45-minute drive away for snowy adventures!

For the best chance to make the most of Lake Taupo, look no further than Waitahanui Lakefront Escape.

Being able to go to sleep with the sound of the lake nearby was amazing. To be able to wake up and take in the beautiful views was how we started our day. The house was exactly what was promised. Definitely be coming back here.

Stayed October 2020

A palatial stylish warm lake side residence with 4 + bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all the modern conveniences required including a well fitted out kitchen. Although located outside of Taupo very easy to drive to attractions/supermarkets. The river paths are beautiful for walking or bike riding. We had a very enjoyable visit. Many thanks

Stayed September 2020

We had a brilliant weekend in Taupo with our 2 adult children and their partners. The house is right on the lake and is huge It is quiet and warm. As well as 3 double bedrooms it was great to have 3 bathrooms also as it meant that everybody had plenty of space and privacy. We went for a number of walks up the nearby stream/river, swam in the lake and rode our bikes to 5 Mile Bay. Highly recommended.
