Overview

Kauawhi Lakefront Lodge is a luxurious three bedroom holiday home located on the shores of Lake Taupo. This well-appointed and welcoming home won first place in category 6 of the Registered Master Builders' Federation House of the Year competition in 1999, and makes for the ultimate retreat.

Kauawhi Lakefront Lodge is a gorgeous split-level lakefront lodge, with direct access to Lake Taupo via a path at the front of the house, leading to a secluded beach on the beautiful Lake Taupo.

Outdoor living is made easy at this Acacia Bay accommodation. Folding sliding doors on the lakefront side of the house ensure a seamless transition from inside to outside during the summer months and the seculded north facing courtyard and outdoor fireplace is a year round sun-trap.

On the lakefront terrace there's plenty of outdoor space to relax with deck chairs and an outdoor dining table and chairs to sit back, relax, and take in the exquisite views.

The beautifully decorated interior holds all the amenities you need for a relaxing getaway, both for couples or families, You’ll find a Jetmaster fire to enjoy in winter, and a smart TV with a DVD player and DVD library. There's a Jaimo sound system with speakers stretching into both living areas, meaning you never have to be away from your favourite tunes.

Sink back into the luxurious couches and take your pick of reading material from the extensive library. Open plan living allows you to enjoy cooking in the beautiful kitchen, while your loved ones relax in the lounge. Check out the hidden butler’s pantry with doors leading out on the back terrace.

Three elegant bedrooms, all with ensuites, make up the spacious living quarters. Upstairs enjoy the master suite, consisting of a super king bed, Bose CD player and walk-in wardrobe. Walk out onto the balcony offering an incredible vantage point and say good morning to those amazing lake views!

This property has brilliant access to the waterfront. It lacks nothing in the way of facilities and all of the fittings are very high quality. Highly recommended.

I love this home in Acacia Bay. We have stayed twice, and plan one more visit in February. I felt welcomed and comfortable in the well stocked kitchen. It was right on Lake Taupo in close proximity to several art studios. “Sweet as!” Karen Fisher
