Copper Beech Cottage is a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom holiday home. Located just a stone’s throw away from the lake’s edge this home is the perfect base for an adventurous Taupo group getaway.

The spacious 3 bedrooms include 2 queens and 2 singles. In bedroom 3 you will also find your own private access to the deck where you can sit peacefully among the private garden. The gorgeous high beam ceiling in the living area makes for a bright, airy and inviting space. During the winter season enjoy the cosy set up by the fire, and during the warmer months dine outdoors on the sundeck.

Stay local and walk along the lake's edge and take in the serene setting or drive into Taupo Central, just 10 minutes away. For more sights, Huka Falls is 16 minutes away from your home. For the adrenaline junkies, there is no need to travel far - Taupo Bungy located right outside Taupo central along the Waikato river.

Head to the Whakapapa Ski Fields for a snow filled day out with your group, just an hour away. Or if you're after a bit of sightseeing, the famous Orakei Korako Geothermal Park is just 1 hour north of the house.

Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation or are visiting for an endurance event, Copper Beech Cottage is the perfect base!

Cute cottage, Nice quiet street - But terrible Ant problem Also, Access to the property is hard as bachcare didn't send thorough access info, then gave us the wrong code Hot Water was also off when we arrived which caused us to be hunting high and low

Bachcare replied

We are so delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at this well located, lovely cottage. Our sincere apologies for providing the incorrect access instructions and not having the hot water switched on, ready to go. The ant issue has been addressed and so sorry that there was an ant presence during your stay.

The Cottage was absolutely lovely and very comfortable for the six of us. It is in a great location with easy access to the lake front for walking, biking and swimming - a 5 minute walk at most. There was lots of space for parking and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. There was no wi-fi, which we knew about ,so wasn't a problem and it was a real bonus being able to take our little dog along. The only issue was with Bachcare giving us the wrong lockbox code and then not responding in any way to phone calls to their 0800 number and an email. Luckily the neighbours were able to help us out.

Stayed September 2019

Our family enjoyed staying in this bach. It was close to the lake to go for a walk and a short drive from Taupo. We had a nice time overall, but please be aware there is no wifi. We would most likely stay here again.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback! We know that some guests like to get away from it all, so if you prefer wifi, please note you can always use the 'wifi' filter when searching for a stay. We hope to welcome you back soon!

Excellent house - stayed with kids and baby in winter. House was heated on arrival and ready to walk in and relax. Comfortable beds, had everything we would need. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Gorgeous, cozy little cottage, great location so close to the lake. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed January 2019

This cosy cottage is nestled among trees, giving privacy and shade. It is just a stone's throw from lake access to the rotary trail at the north part of whakarewarewa. Around a 40 min walk to 2 mile bay boat hire/pizza and coffee, and probably another 40 into town. There's ample parking, a garage for storing toys (bikes/paddle board), 2 double bedrooms (very comfy beds) and a generously sized room with twin beds. Lounge opens onto deck with table where we ate all our meals. Bathroom and Kitchen had everything necessary (note no dishwasher, but that's fine on holiday) and lovely BBQ (weber!). Kids loved the games. If it had a lake view we'd give it 5 stars ;)

Good value for an event weekend in Taupo. Very close to the shore of the lake for a pleasant stroll.

Stayed December 2018

This property was perfect for our stay, well presented and equipped. A wonderful welcome was made by the bachcare manager as well.

Stayed September 2018

Lovely property in a great location close to the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed February 2018

Good comfortable house, very much the traditional kiwi bach in a good location with proximity to the lake. Close enough to Taupo center for convenience but far enough away to feel like your on holiday.
