SMALL COZY SUNNY SELF-CONTAINED COTTAGE ON LAKE TAUPO'S FORESHORE

Lake Taupo Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 half bathroom/laundry with toilet, sleeps 4-5

Wharewaka Cottage is a comfortable, sunny, fully carpeted home-away-from-home self-contained cottage with lake views and direct walking access by zigzag path to the best beach at Four Mile Bay, Lake Taupo. Lovely garden setting - the perfect place to relax and recharge batteries. Instead of a small motel unit, this cottage provides you with a complete house for the same price - and sleeps 4-5!. Light the fire in winter and hunker down or enjoy the outdoors in mid-summer. Full sun, private drive-on access and peaceful location away from the State Highway traffic yet only 2 minutes from Taupo's Airport. A quick stroll takes you down to the lake edge where you can walk south to view spectacular sunsets and mountain views or north towards Taupo township. Eight minutes to the centre of town by car, right on the town bus route and handy to restaurant, take away food outlet and general store.

About Wharewaka Cottage: The cottage was once a double motel unit belonging to Taupo's first motel. It has been retained to provide rental accommodation and extra living for the owners' family members at peak holiday periods. The owners also lived in the cottage for two years so can vouch for its comfort and coziness.

The surrounding area is particularly pretty being so close to the lake yet within easy driving of the township. The owners live on site (most of the time) so are available for information and assistance. Come and see for yourselves - its a little piece of heaven!
