Five mile bay is quite windy. However there is a deck on the road side to sit out of the wind. The upstairs area is great with lots of space to cook and entertain with nice views of the lake and mountains.- STEPHANIE, December 2021

“Loved this relaxed and directly on the water accommodation.”
If you want to be relaxed and worry free and don't need top of the line luxury this is the place. We had access to and used the kayak and dingy, good for the family. Best thing was being able to invite all the family including the dog.- Wendy, March 2018

This property can accommodate up to 9, provided that there is maximum of 7 adults and the rest of the 2 should be children (due to the bunk beds only being suitable for children).
Guests with young children are advised some of the windows on the 2nd level that open are quite low to the ground and therefore may not be suitable for a child's room if the windows are open
As the property has unfenced access to the lake, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water
Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
About the location
Just an 8 minute drive around the lake from Taupo Central, Wharewaka is a great base for a relaxing or adventure-packed holiday. It's out of the hustle and bustle of the centre, but still close to many of the bucket-list activities Taupo has to offer such as going out on the lake, visiting Huka Falls or even making the trek along the Tongariro Crossing. All of our Wharewaka holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
