Property description

The Space

Hot Pool Hideaway Views is a beautiful, elegant property which has been completely renovated in 2015.
Spacious living for 2-6 people
It has a magnificent view of the lake stretching from the Mountains, (Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngaruahoe) to the Township of Taupo.
It has a modern, internal thermal hot pool which is rare in Taupo and a real luxury.

This sunny, three bedroom beautifully decorated house is down a right of way leading to a large private garden on two levels.
The master bedroom with queen bed, walk in wardrobe, computer desk and ensuite have large doors opening out to the garden and lake view.
The second bedroom has a queen bed, lake and garden view, a relaxing window seat, wardrobe and chest of drawers.
The third bedroom has two twin beds, wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The holiday home is fully furnished with a kitchen well set up with all you will need. Basics are supplied in the way of sugar, flour, tea, coffee, herbs and spices.

This warm and sunny house is open plan living with double glazing, a large, flued, Rinnai Gas Heater in the sitting room, and electric heating in all other rooms.

Out Door Space
There are lovely sitting out door areas both front and back of the house providing sheltered outdoor living at all times. Barbecue provided.
The garden is well landscaped on two levels, with a very large lower level providing great space for games and added relaxation.

Within a few minutes walking to the lake at the bottom of the street, and excellent walking, biking, running facilities right beside the lake, with 'The Lions Walk' to the left, around the various picturesque bays, and all the way to the township to the right, where you can stop at the coffee cart or gelato cart en route!
It is a five minute drive to the very active township of Taupo with its multiple cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.
The Botanical Gardens are within easy walking up the top of the road, and Debretts outdoor Thermal Hot Pools are a few minutes drive away.

Taupo has amazing activities on offer to enjoy and is the adventure capital of New Zealand.
Jet boat rides on the Waikato River right up to the magnificent Huka Falls Rapids, Paragliding, Sky Diving, Bungee Jumping, World famous Trout Fishing, Mountain Biking and unique Thermal Hot Pools.
It is a golfing mecca with four first class 18 hole golf courses, two of them being of international standard.
Taupo is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing and plenty of boat charters and cruises where the 'Maori Rock Carvings' can only be seen from the water, and one is promised a fresh trout for lunch or dinner!

Great Lake Taupo is centrally located in the middle of the North Island approximately three and a half hours drive from Auckland, and four and a half hours from Wellington.
It is a convenient base to exploring Tongariro National Park (11/2 hours) where there are two ski fields and the well-known Tongariro Crossing with its spectacular topography, stunning blue and green lakes and outstanding views.

Lake Taupo is also the setting for two famous sporting events: The Around Lake Taupo Cycling Event in November, and The Iron Man in March.

In addition, Taupo region offers, day trips to Rotorua, (1 hour), Tongariro National Park, (1 1/2 hours), Napier (11/2 hours), Waitomo Caves (1 1/2 hours) and Canoeing down the Whanganui River. (1 1/2 hours)

The Lake, from Tourism New Zealand.........
The beautiful Lake Taupo was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption which darkened the skies of Europe and China.
Visit the Craters of the Moon and you will see evidence of the Lake's fiery birth in geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools.
At some of Lake Taupo's beaches, swimmers and paddlers can enjoy warm geothermal water currents.

Guest Access
Guests have access to the whole property. We have a lock box with the front door key inside. Your code will be supplied to you when you book.
Guests enjoy free use of Wireless Internet.

Interaction with Guests
I have a very friendly approach to all enquiries and promptly answer all email enquiries and all follow up questions. Unfortunately, on most occasions, I will not be there to greet you as I live in Wellington.
I will provide you with the code for the lock box once the booking has been confirmed.
There will be very clear house instructions on the dining room table.
My sister lives in Taupo close by and her numbers are provided in the instruction sheet. I will be available by mobile (Phone Number Hidden) if you need me.
Please note that this is a quiet, safe neighbourhood and consideration for our neighbours is important.

We are a few minutes from the lake which has beautiful walks in both directions right beside the lake; around The Bays and into the Township.
Local shopping centre a couple of minutes away at Richmond Heights with good 4 Square Grocery Shop, liquor store, & great fish and chips

The airport is 2 K from our house.

Wonderful local walks to the famous Huka Falls, canoeing on the Waikato River, Bungey jumping, Paragliding, and sky Diving to mention just a few!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why Waipahihi (Taupo, New Zealand):
My parents first holidayed at Lake Taupo in the 1970s. We continued the tradition with our own children and grandchildren. Our children became addicted to water skiing, boating, fishing, tramping and snow skiing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique thing about this house, apart from the thermal hot mineral pool, is the magnificent view of the lake and mountains, and the two outdoor seating areas providing comfort in all weather. There is a large, beautiful garden on the lower level which is great for kids games, or just to sit in tranquility and listen to the birds.
