Yes Outside Only
Sit out on the sundeck overlooking the lake and take some time out for yourself this trip - welcome to Te Whare Pae Wehe (Meaning the house at the halfway line).
This large 2-storey Lake Taupō holiday home is just the right spot for your family or group to truly unwind and enjoy some easy holiday living. Sleeping up to 12 guests in 4 bedrooms with 3.5 bathrooms there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out.
Te Whare Pae Wehe comes equipped with some of the must-haves for any classic holiday to the lake. No matter the time of the year you'll be at just the right temp with air conditioning in summer and a heat pump and fireplace to keep you toasty warm in winter.
When you've spent the day out on the lake fishing, make use of the fish-filleting bench to prep your fresh catch ready to throw on the BBQ for a classic kiwi summer meal.
Just one street back from Motuoapa Esplanade and Marina - this is a great place for a scenic stroll along the lakefront with your morning coffee. The morning coffee you can grab from Licorice Cafe, 1-minutes walk from your doorstep. You'll be just 35-minutes away from Taupō town centre if you're looking to head out for dinner. But the best part of this location is you'll only be a 40-minute drive from Whakapapa Ski Field and the Tongariro Crossing for those snowy winter adventures!
For relaxing days spent looking out over the glistening Lake Taupō, look no further than Te Whare Pae Wehe!

SalinaStayed January 2021
The manger’s attitude is not very good. And too many insects.
Thank you for your feedback Salina. Great service is very important to us here at Bachcare. We will follow up on the service you received and make sure it is improved moving forward. We have checked the property for insects and are happy to report there is no insect problem, however with the great location of this property right on the lake, at certain times of the year it is normal for the area to be more prone to insects. We hope you enjoyed your time at Lake Taupo.

Lovely house, clean and warm
UrsulaStayed May 2020
This is a comfortable and cosy place to gather with the extra bedrooms and bathrooms making it perfect for extended family or a small group of friends. Great to be able to see a little of the lake and marina and having the sun flooding in much of the day and a toasty fire at night. Convenient location so close to the lake and the cafe and a lovely tiny bushwalk across the road. Although there was noise and vibrations from the trucks on SH1, it really wasn't an issue for us.

This is a beautifully appointed home and it had everything we needed for our stay. Loved to come back and sit on the deck over looking the boat docks and lake in the summer.
