Enjoy open-plan living and ample outdoor space at this classic kiwi bach, just minutes from the shores of Lake Taupo. Welcome to Motuoapa Rise!

This gem of a holiday home is ideal for your next Lake Taupo getaway with your friends. The cosy living space is kept at just the right temperature with the heat pump and offers comfy couches for everyone to relax and unwind. Pet owners will be pleased to know they can bring their furry family members on holiday with them too!

Whip up a snack in the well-equipped kitchen, pull out one of the classic board games and set yourselves up at the coffee table for a bit of fun indoors. Or, open up the doors for seamless indoor-outdoor flow to the huge wrap-around deck, and enjoy a fresh cuppa from the coffee plunger as you admire the lake views.

With good fishing out on the lake, you’ll want to bring your boat with you on holiday. There’s plenty of room to park it on the grass, and with public reserve on two sides of the property, it certainly won’t interrupt your backyard cricket game!

Furthermore, there are 2 kayaks & 2 life jackets available and you're welcome to use them as well!

Launch the boat at the marina only a short drive away, and when you come home with your fresh catch, fire up the BBQ for an alfresco feast!

At the end of the day’s adventures, everyone can retreat to their own private space. Three bedrooms comfortably sleep up to six guests, and with the toilet being separate from the shower there’s no need to queue up for the conveniences at either end of the day.

It’s just a short drive down to the lake from Motuoapa Rise where you’ll find the marina with cafes to get your espresso coffee fix. Safe swimming spots are also only about 5-10 minutes away by car. Venture further afield with a scenic drive to Taupo, and after a great day out take a dip in the hot pools at Tokaanu on the way home.

Wide-open space, fantastic views, and outdoor living at it’s finest await, here at Motuoapa Rise!

Great place to stay with everything you need and close enough to the lake you can walk there. Lots of outside space. Everything you need inside and even the bonus of WIFI. Would definitely stay here again and I will be telling my friends about the place as well.

Comfortable and humble little spot, in a quiet neighbourhood. Have provided owners with some feedback re: cleanliness and that some more welcome info would’ve been good. Closest village is Turangi which has a New World, around 10 mins away. No close restaurants really other than Chinese takeaways so be ready to travel to Taupo for that.

Great little spacious bach with a stunning view of the lake located in a cute little lakeside community with nice walks. Thanks for the board games too, we enjoyed playing those as a family.
