Cosy and Secluded Holiday Home

Family-friendly holiday home in Hatepe
Come and relax in our cosy, bright and secluded holiday home and fill your days with all the activities that this lovely area has to offer. If you fancy a run around bring your tennis rackets and your A-game and enjoy a game on the community tennis court. If fishing and lake activities are your thing launch your boat for free from the boat ramp and enjoy a day on the lake. There are amazing walks along the Hinemaiaia River and the fishing in the river is world famous. It is only 20 minutes drive to the thriving city of Taupo for a hit of coffee or a spot of shopping and Taupo is jam-packed with activities and attractions to suit everybody. Drive for an hour and you could be carving it up on the Whakapapa ski field.

At the end of the day maybe you fancy a wander down to the lake front to take in the majestic sunset or get the BBQ cranking, and enjoy a glass or two while sitting out on the fabulous big deck reflecting on what a great day you have had and what a beautiful place Hatepe really is.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely stay at cosy Hatepe bach
Loved relaxing in front of the fire ..everything we needed for a short break. Thank you.

1/5 Terrible

Booked & paid in full on the day of confirmation, this was well over a week before check in. Waited to hear check in details, thought surely by the time we drive 3 hours to Taupo we would receive them. Several messages & hours later we had no option but to return home. We had the dog with us, finding something last minute wasn't an option. Lorina finally called when we were well beyond a point of returning. Granted, we have been refunded in full & some compensation for fuel. However, this poor management & complete lack of communication, ruined what was supposed to be a relaxing birthday weekend.
