Lake Taupo Spa Cottage, Wharewaka Road, Taupo (Bachcare)

Lake Taupo Spa Cottage is a 3 bedroom Taupo holiday house, perfectly tailored for groups and families looking for a sports event base, weekend getaway or longer holiday stay at Lake Taupo.

This Taupo holiday home has 3 double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed and bedroom 2 has a double. Bedroom 3 has a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. Bedroom 4 has 2 single beds. There is also a fold-out double couch in the lounge. A portacot is available should it be required. There is 1 bathroom and separate toilet in the house, an additional bathroom and toilet can be accessed from outside and are located in the garage of this Taupo accommodation.

For ultimate relaxation a hot spa pool awaits you in the spa room through french doors off the deck - bliss! There is also internal access via the bathroom.

French doors lead from the living area and open on to the rear deck and BBQ area under a wisteria pergola, a great place to relax in the afternoon sun, or under the fairy lights in the evening. In the winter months you can also curl up on the comfy sofas by the wood fire in the lounge.

Children love the private leafy backyard that is fully enclosed, perfect for a tent. The large lockable double garage is suitable for parking cars or a boat, storing mountain bikes and has plenty of extra space for the kids to play in on a rainy day. There is also off street parking on the front cobbled courtyard.

The galley kitchen is in the heart of the house, looking onto the BBQ area and is well appointed with electric hobs, oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Dine indoors around the six-seater handcrafted hexagonal wooden dining table, a great place to enjoy the day's catch fresh from the Lake.

There is smart TV with a DVD player (BluRay) and a stereo system with an iPod connection. There is also an automatic washing machine and a dryer, as well as electric blankets available for your convenience.

It is an easy 4 minute walk from the lake edge via the neighbouring walkway. Take your togs and enjoy the great swimming beach immediately below. Walk, cycle or push a stroller along the lake edge path to the childrens' playground and boat ramp close by, or double back and head for a coffee on the jetty at the 2 Mile Bay Sailing Centre. Rent a kayak, dingy or windsurfer while you are there.

Out front, sit on the porch and watch for tui in the kowhai tree, or listen for the pop of the parachutes up above and look for their bright colours as they float down toward the airport, a 5 minute drive from the house.

It is approximately a 10 minute drive into Taupo township for shops, cinema, restaurants and bars. The Rainbow Point dairy is just a 2 minute drive.

Lake Taupo Spa Cottage is private and peaceful and allows for full enjoyment of all that Lake Taupo has to offer!
