Villa in Taupo
The Point Villa Ngahere
Nothing but bushland surrounds this wonderfully private villa on the shores of Lake Taupo. Watch the sun move across the mountains and water from the shade of the pergola on the terrace or beneath the vaulted ceiling of the open-concept great room. Hike to the footbridge over the roaring Huka Falls, cycle the nearby Great Lake Trail, or fish for trout—the only way to taste this local specialty.  You’ll have to decide whether the views of Mine Bay are best from the swimming pool, hot tub, or the outdoor lounging and dining areas. If you’re lucky enough to have caught a local trout, try preparing it on the barbecue (or call a restaurant in Taupo to do the job). After a day out on the lake or in the mountains, the smart TV, Wi-Fi, and gas fireplace are ready to help you unwind.  Fold-away glass walls make the great room feel like an extension of the sunny terrace. Here, you can stretch out on a wicker sofa, whip up something delicious in the fully equipped kitchen, or relive the day’s adventures with friends and family around a dining table for 8, all under a vaulted ceiling that makes the space bright and airy.  Each of the 3 bedrooms at this luxury vacation rental has a king bed and en-suite bathroom; 2 of them have lake views and one opens directly to the terrace with the hot tub, for couples who might want to relive their honeymoon.  The Point Villa Ngahere offers a quintessential New Zealand holiday, with gorgeous scenery, outdoor adventure and great food all close at hand. It’s a 1-minute drive to the Taupo Maori Carving, which can also be seen from the water on a kayak tour, and a short drive to both the brilliant blue waters of Huka Falls and the town of Taupo.   Copyright © Luxury Retreats.

Villa in Acacia Bay
Taupo's Edge
Listen to the crackling of a wood burning fire as you gaze overtop the lush canopy leading down to Lake Taupo at this nature-loving villa in New Zealand. Sunbathe in the courtyard, kick back in a bean bag chair, and cool off in the alfresco shower. When you’re ready to explore, start by following a nearby bush track that winds through the forest and leads down to the lake.   Flow from inside to out as freely as the cool cross-breeze thanks to wall-length openings on nearly every perimeter wall. Under a vaulted-ceiling, the open concept main room is ready to host unforgettable family dinners, late nights with friends, and lazy afternoons. Sip cocktails and watch the sailboats from the balcony while the kids watch a movie in the Smart TV lounge or play soccer on the courtyard’s lawn. Stop by one of the local markets in Taupo and pick up some freshly caught lake fish for a barbeque. Dine at the alfresco set, letting the forest and lake views set the perfect tone. There are 3 parking spaces, a garage, and security cameras, so invite some new friends. When it’s late, move the party inside and let your inner mixologist get creative at the bar. Lake Taupo, Huka Falls, and Mount Tauhara are just a few of the natural wonders nearby, so bring your hiking boots. If there’s an angler in the group, boat rentals and fishing charters are available from Lakefun Taupo. While you’re out on the water, swing by Taupo Maori Carvings, a historic rockface in Acacia Bay. Then, head 11 kilometers into Taupo for a night on the town.  Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

Villa in Taupo
The Point Estate
Nothing interrupts the Lake Taupo views from these two modern homes except your own private pools. The villas may be the only civilization in 58 acres of bushland, but sun-splashed terraces, and airy rooms with glass walls and vaulted ceilings mean they’re quite civilized indeed. Discover the area by boat, on a cycle on the Great Lake Trail, or on a fishing trip in search of local trout.   Each villa has its own outdoor living areas with a swimming pool, sitting and dining furniture, and a barbecue. In the evenings, you can flip on the gas fireplace and set the mood with the sound system, or stay in touch with the outside world via Wi-Fi. An espresso machine will fuel your outdoor adventures, and laundry facilities will help you start each activity with fresh gear.   Fold-away glass walls and vaulted ceilings give you the luxury of enjoying the glorious New Zealand scenery from the comfort of the wicker sofas in the villas’ living rooms. Fry up locally caught trout in the fully equipped kitchens and reconnect with friends and family around the dining tables.   This vacation rental includes one 2-bedroom house and one 3-bedroom house. All 5 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and several have lake views. While they can accommodate up to 10 guests, the smaller villa could also be a retreat for in-laws wanting a quieter holiday or a couple wanting honeymoon-style privacy.   The Point Estate is a 1-minute drive from the Taupo Maori Carving, which towers above the waters of the lake. It’s also a short drive from the roaring blue waters of Huka Falls, where the lake drains out of its caldera, and the shops and restaurants in the town of Taupo. Thirsty travelers can also plan to visit the craft breweries and wineries outside of downtown.   Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
