The White Apartment by the Lake is the entire bottom floor of our home; this is a private space for sole use, ideal for short term accommodation to enjoy beautiful Lake Taupo. With three double bedrooms and one full sized family bathroom, the apartment ideally suits older families or groups. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac of high spec homes and a two minute walk to the lakefront, it is a comfortable and quiet space to come back to after a long day of sightseeing or sporting activities.

The space
The apartment - modern, bright, classically furnished - is a comfortable space that can accommodate up to 6 people (3 double beds). Please note there are no single beds or provision for children. We live above the apartment on the top floor. There is one large living/dining space complete with a kitchenette. A microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge-freezer will be available for you. In addition, some breakfast basics will be provided for your arrival. The apartment has Chrome Cast and an extensive DVD collection for you to use. Please note, there is no access to a full-sized kitchen for cooking but there is dining space to seat 6; there are plenty of restaurants and takeaways in town also.

The apartment has a heat pump for the winter and air con for the warm summers. There are three good sized bedrooms each with a built in wardrobe and drawer space. Bedroom one has a king bed, bedroom two a queen bed and bedroom three a double bed. There is one family-sized bathroom with shower, vanity, WC and separate bath tub. Towels and linen will be provided for your stay. To enter the apartment, you will use a private entrance way from the rear of the house. Also, there is a utility room with washer and separate drier, iron and ironing board.

With plenty of off-street parking via the shared driveway, there is secure-parking for your vehicle(s). Also, a large patio area off the living area has recently been built for you to enjoy. Unfortunately, you will not have access to the garage space (unless specifically requested to store bikes etc) as it is full however, there is plenty of secure space in the rear garden to store bikes/boats etc.

This accommodation is ideal for adults/teenagers but not for small children due to the bedding arrangements and open front lawn. The apartment fronts onto the road of the current Iron Man run stage and the apartment is in very close proximity to Taupo Cycle Challenge. It is an ideal short term accommodation stay for Taupo's many sporting events.

Guest access
You will have full and private access to the apartment, rear parking space and front garden/patio. Please note: you will not have access to the garaging space but there is plenty of off-road parking space for your vehicle(s).

Other things to note
This apartment is not suitable for young children or parties. There is a small step into the entrance and one narrowish hallway, so therefore is not suitable for wheelchair access. Also, the family dog (a 9 year old black labrador) will be in the rear garden. Friendly, quiet and lovable - he likes to make new friends! You will simply have to ensure you close the side gate when entering and exiting the house.
