Marinaside Villa is a Taupo holiday apartment central to all the action with WiFi. Relax in style at this contemporary lifestyle apartment with partial elevated views over the marina, lake, river, parks and city.

This Taupo holiday apartment enjoys a central location allowing you to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the river to parks and Taupo Central Shopping Precinct... make the most of restaurants, markets, entertainment and many activities on offer, or for the boat enthusiast, the picturesque marina and boat ramp are a mere 5 minutes away.

Plus, the secure gated pool complex provides great entertainment for family and friends with a swimming pool and BBQ area!

The layout of this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 3 level home is as follows:
On the top floor is an open plan kitchen and living, bathroom with a toilet and hand basin, and a double bedroom opening onto a small deck. The middle floor has 2 bedrooms, one with king bed, the other a queen bed plus a Port-a-cot, a shared ensuite bathroom, and access to the courtyard with street level access.

The lower level 4th bedroom is located off the garage and has a double bed. The garage with internal access is 7.5m in length and has an additional very comfortable seating area. A quiet spot to get away from it all. Please note that this bedroom is cooler during the winter months as it is an attachment to the garage, and not as well insulated.

Whether it's fishing, boating, skiing, tramping, exploring new territory, experiencing some of the many adventures/activities on offer in our lovely district, or simply relaxing away from your normal routine...

Marinaside villa is your ideal holiday base!

Good location lovely views comfortable house.

Stayed July 2021

I guess please confirm everything is working to ensure you do not face what we faced having kids can be difficult.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Shareen! We're sorry to hear you weren't able to operate some of the appliances at the property and have checked that they're all in working order. The underfloor heating is great for keeping the whole property warm in winter, and the extra heaters provided should keep rooms warm enough too but we'll make sure these are always available in each room.

Stayed July 2021

Half of the light bulbs in the property doesn’t even work. The heaters provided don’t change the room temperature during winter season.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review, Elvis! We're sorry to hear that some light bulbs weren't working and we are replacing them to ensure they all are. We are also checking the heating which currently includes a heat pump, electric heaters and underfloor heating. We hope you had an enjoyable stay despite these two issues and kindly remind you that while staying at a Bachcare property, you can contact our support team to assist you with any issues, as it is in our best interest to have these resolved on the spot where possible, to ensure your experience isn't impacted.

A beautiful, well presented apartment with views overlooking the marina and river mouth. Easy walking distance to town and restaurants. Calm and relaxing and a very nice place to stay. Recommended!

Lovely apartment, nice and close to town - we walked to dinner. The pool was a real bonus!

Stayed October 2020

A great property over three floors. The accomodation is in good condition and was extremely clean. The pool was a big hit for all the family, with a reasonable closing time of 10pm!

Stayed October 2020

Nice place to stay close to Taupo centre and marina, great for walking rather than having to get in the car. Comfortable unit, everything you need for a nice break in Taupo.

Don't really want to talk it up as everyone will want to stay there, so let's just say...it was awesome!! Fabulous location and well appointed apartment.

Stayed November 2018

Great, modern and comfortable property, conveniently located just outside the town centre (15-20 min walk). Highly recommended. No noise at all though perhaps stayed off season (early Nov).
