Guest reviews for Pokaka Lake House

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed October 2020

A lovely place to stay at with both mountain view and lake view. Highly recommend guests bring bikes if possible as the 10km shared bike/walk path around lake waterfront is "at the door step." The accommodation provides ample heating options with wood fire and electric heating. There are four toilets in this house and three bathrooms so it is incredibly well suited for a larger family. Neighborhood is quiet and the large reserve area in front of house provides peace and tranquility. Would be very happy to stay here again!

Lovely 😊. Large spaces perfect for our families getaway, beautiful views and sun filled rooms in the frosty morning was a treat. Didn’t use the outhouse room so can’t comment there but service was fantastic and everything nice and clean.

We would highly recommend this property, had stunning views of the lake and town. House was brilliant, was large and spacious. Minute walk to the lake, minutes away from town but yet so private.

Stayed May 2019

Great house in a great location. Very quiet street & excellent views of the lake. Lovely fire to heat the house. We loved our stay & will be back again.

Stayed May 2019

The house itself was perfect, very well set up, large and comfortable and the location at the edge of the lake is superb. The only hiccup with our stay was a charge for cleaning after we had left. However, Bachcare responded very quickly to our complaint about this so overall we were very happy with our stay.

Stayed March 2019

Pokaka House is beautifully positioned with a gorgeous view over Lake Taupo, north facing, spacious and was just right for our family of 8. Loved having 3 bathrooms and the sunny deck was a treat. Great spot!
