Riverside Retreat, River Road, Broadlands, Lake Taupo (Bachcare)

Off the beaten path on a large sunny section of the Waikato River sits Riverside Retreat. With direct river access, this much loved holiday home sleeps up to 15 guests across the 3-bedroom main house and two sleepouts. It's the ideal property for quiet family getaways or weekends with big groups of friends - you can even bring your furry friends. 

Sunbathe and picnic by the glassy river, or use the rope swing and jump off the dock! There's plenty of room for boat parking on site or give fishing off the dock a go and catch a trout for dinner!

Enjoy the summer nights and gather your group for a BBQ on the deck or on the riverside picnic table. Watching the sun set over your very own slice of paradise at the end of the day is a memorable way to experience the magic of Broadlands.

Experience rural New Zealand serenity at Riverside Retreat, and take time out to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Coffee lovers don't have to detox entirely though - there's a Nespresso machine on hand to fuel your adventures, just bring your own pods!

You'll love being a scenic 20-minute drive from the heart of Taupo, where you'll find great eateries, cycling tracks and the geothermal hot pools. Adrenaline junkies can catch their thrills with jet boating, bungy jumping and white water rafting down the rapids.

This property is also an easy 50-minute drive to Rotorua and the geothermal wonderland there. Ride the gondola up the hill and race down on the Luge. Take a quad bike tour or try the biking and hiking tracks. Alternatively just relax at the cafes and restaurants.

Riverside paradise awaits at Riverside Retreat!
