Waitahanui Lakefront Escape - Waitahanui Holiday Home

Holiday home in Waitahanui with fireplace
Immerse yourself in lakefront living with stunning views of idyllic Lake Taupo. Make the most of this beautiful location and enjoy a refreshing escape at the fantastic Waitahanui Lakefront Escape.

The house features a spacious living room with stunning indoor/outdoor flow opening out to the beautiful lake. On warm summer evenings, you have the option of alfresco dining with an unforgettable backdrop. Watch the sun go down over the lake and mountains in the distance. Prepare your meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, or spark up the barbecue for a classic meal hot off the grill.
Or for a toasty winter escape to the lake, Waitahanui Beachfront Escape has both a heat pump and wood-burning fireplace. Pour yourself a glass of wine and get cosy on the couch with a good book or watch TV (with SKY TV) for a bit of entertainment.

Ideally suited for large groups with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, there is more than enough space for the whole family to spread out and find their own space.

Situated close to the crystal clear, free-flowing Waitahanui River, there are many easy walking tracks including the famous 'Rock Pool' walk within a few minutes. Waitahanui is famed for its trout fishing so bring your rod and give fly-fishing a go. Also, the Whakapapa Ski Field is just a 45-minute drive away for snowy adventures!

For the best chance to make the most of Lake Taupo, look no further than Waitahanui Lakefront Escape.
Great news – Bachcare provides cleaning and linen services for all HomeAway bookings. The total price for your booking will include Bachcare’s cleaning and linen service fee, which will be paid as part of your booking. Check out the “owners fees” on your booking summary for details of these fees.
Other things to note: As the property has direct, unfenced access to the lake, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

Family fun
We all enjoyed our stay at Waitahanui Lakefront Escape except minor setback with power tripping when two appliances were going together at once, which we easily resolved it. Neat and tidy place, hear pump and fireplace. Spacious rooms. Cazna was helpful and good communication. Quiet neighbourhood, 14 minutes to supermarket. Overall an awesome trip. We will return. Cheers Shazza
