A fantastic weekend at the most amazing location on Lake Taupo. Set in the bush on top of the lake it is truely unique. We loved staying at Dan and Sylvie's home which has clearly been designed with family in mind. What a spot!!

Luxury retreat! Sweeping views across the lake from almost every room in the house. Come prepared with supplies as once you arrive you will not want to leave. The house is set in lush native forest with easy access (4min walk) to the lake. There are bush walks around the property, two boat ramps and a great tennis court. All the finer details have been considered in building this luxury house providing an instant feeling of relaxation when you arrive. The bedrooms downstairs were a highlight with stunning views and extremely comfy beds/linen. Will definitely be returning!

We are a young family of 4, my son Raphael is 3.5 years old and my daughter Lilou is 1 year old. We built our holiday house to suit our family needs and to create fond memories for our growing family. We live in Hong Kong for the moment and we love traveling, eating and sharing life fun moments with our amazing friends from all around the world! My husband is a Kiwi and I'm from Belgium, interesting mix of culture and we wouldn't want it any other way!
