Riverbed Lodge, Heuheu Parade, Tauranga Taupo, Lake Taupo (Bachcare)

A rare find just seconds from the edge of the Tauranga-Taupo River, Riverbed Lodge is a huge holiday house ideal for your next extended family vacation, sleeping up to 17 across 7 bedrooms. 

Not just for the human members of your family, Riverbed Lodge is pet-friendly too and fully fenced with plenty of space to run and play. 

Riverbed Lodge is a holiday home reminiscent of Kiwi summers of old, where every second was spent outdoors fishing, swimming, climbing trees or playing backyard cricket. Dinners don't get any easier or more quintessentially Kiwi than a BBQ dinner on the deck! 

Riverbed Lodge has a large living area up and downstairs, decked out with retro style and plenty of comfy couches for watching movies or getting stuck into a good book. With four bedrooms upstairs, and three bedrooms and separate kitchenette downstairs, there's more than enough space for the whole whanau. 

Keen fishers will love the location, right on the banks of Tauranga-Taupo River - a hotspot for famous brown and rainbow trout. Peaceful and secluded, you can disconnect entirely from big city life at Riverbed Lodge. 

Spend the days fishing, or pack a picnic and take the 12-minute walk to Oruatua picnic site and pretty Maraetai Bay. You're just 5-minutes drive from Turangi for supplies and takeaways, and 30-minutes from Taupo.

For a old-school getaway and return to the simple life, Riverbed Lodge is waiting to welcome you!
