Wharewaka House Rental Photos and Description

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)

This spacious open-plan house is located in a quiet street in a good area within an easy stroll of the lake and Wharewaka Reserve.

The sunny upstairs master bedroom looks out over surrounding houses to the lake, sunsets in the west, and the mountains in the south. It has its own bathroom and a walk-through wardrobe. A spacious, airy loft is perfect for older children or teenagers with two divan type-beds.

The kitchen and dining area open onto kwila decks on either side of the house. They have in-built seating ? handy for the morning coffee, or a pre-dinner drink. The generous extending dining table will sit everyone comfortably, and cooking is quick with gas hobs.

The lounge has plenty of seating, a wood burner fire and HDTV. It opens to a small courtyard. Bring an Ipod/phone and plug your music in to custom-built speakers.

The main bathroom has both a shower and bath, and the toilet is separate. Gas hot water means no one misses out.

Two bikes are available for your use. There is plenty of space for off-street parking or a boat at the rear.

At Wharewaka Reserve there is good swimming, a great playground and a BBQ. A paved walk/cycle-way from town continues on out past Wharewaka to Five Mile Bay. Bring a bike or your running shoes, and in winter, the skis or snowboard. Just down the road at Waitahanui the trout fishing is renowned. Or try your luck at Wharewaka ? we?ve been surprised. Taupo Airport is only a couple of minutes drive.

"Warm spacious home, cosy lounge with wood burner and dry fire-wood provided.

Best beds ever- wonderful sleeps in quiet peaceful area.

Great variety of walks in every direction along the beautiful lakeside paths and cycle way.

We especially liked the variety of modern cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery including a brand new rice cooker.Views from upstairs across the lake to the distant mountains are stunning.

We will certainly be back." B Hayes June 2014

This is a great property close to the lake. We stayed with two families and there was more than enough room to accommodate everyone. Very clean and well appointed. We really enjoyed our stay.

What a pleasant place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

What a pleasant place to stay! For adults and teens alike, it was the perfect spot with plenty of room for everyone to come together or have their own space as desired. Nice and clean, well appointed and with good access to the Lake and good amenities this was and definitely a home away from home for us. We loved it.

The property is great.

  • 5 of 5

The property is great. Really good location to the lake and Taupo central (5-10 mins drive). Excellent facilities, even a coffee machine which was much appreciated. House has a great kitchen/dinning/lounge layout. Would highly recommend.
