Fire up the outdoor fireplace, pour a glass of wine and enjoy being surrounded by native bush, tucked away at River Retreat!

Spread across one level, this modern holiday home captures the fresh Taupo atmosphere and fills the whole space. At River Retreat, you'll be able to relax from the minute you step in the front door. Tastefully furnished with modern decor and all the mod-cons you and your family might need on your getaway, including HVAC air conditioning and heating system, Smart TV and WiFi. There's even a separate lounge area for the kids to enjoy their own space, as well as a children's playhouse, air hockey table, table tennis table and children's bicycles. The open plan living area that flows out onto the outdoor dining and BBQ area is perfect for those al fresco meals in the evening sun. In the summertime, watch the kids play in the fully fenced section, swim or fish in the river or take advantage of the kayaks available with easy cycle access to "Craters to the Moon" cycle tracks.

Walk down the path and onto the riverfront walkway and head down to Spa Park, Huka Falls, or into town - just an 8 minute walk away. Although you'll feel tucked away, you're just a 5 minute drive to Taupo Central, so you'll be able to indulge in a delicious meal at one of the many local hotspots. Or take in more of the outstanding Taupo scenery at Huka Falls and Huka Jet, two iconic Taupo attractions both within a 2-minute drive.

Take your Taupo holiday up a level at River Retreat!

Guest reviews for River Retreat

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

This is a beautiful home in a private gated community. You are only a short drive from town, but even better is you can walk along the river bank and it will only take you a short 10-15 minutes to get into the town centre. The house is wam and spacious with very comfy beds and pillows. There is lots of things for the kids to use, Kayaks, Bikes, Board Games, Table Tennis, Air Hockey and a Trampoline. For the adults lighting up the outdoor fire and having the few drinks by the fire was a highlight. We loved our stay and highly recommend this property, we will certainly stay here again.

Stayed January 2022

A great home, with plenty of activities for children. A lovely outdoor area with outdoor fire which was used in the evenings. Very clean and had everything we needed. Felt safe and secure being part of a gated street. Will definitely stay again. Our own little piece of paradise!!

This property was excellent and perfect for our two families. Right near the river so easy access to go swimming or walking along rhe walkway. Lovely neighbourhood with friendly residents. Definitely recommend this place and was ideal for a relaxing time away before rhe madness of Christmas set in.

On the very banks of the Waikato River and at the bottom of a sweeping approach to the rivers edge. Truely magical and so close to r Town.

Stayed March 2019

Great location and we enjoyed our stay.

Stayed February 2019

The house was great! Spacious for our large group we loved our stay. No faults other than beware there is now a house being built in front so the property does not have it’s river views as stated (we were not told about this) This will also affect how private it is once completed.
