This is not a standard house. This is a stunning lodge like home with fantastic views from every room and luxury in everything you touch. Stayed with my brother and his family as a special treat. We enjoyed every moment including using the tennis courts, kayaks and swimming pool. If you're looking for something special in the Taupo area, this... More

We recently spent a few days with our children at the point villas and had a stunning holiday despite the cold snap of weather. We stayed in Villa 2 at the top with views from our gorgeous bedroom out and down to the turquoise green waters of the bay below. Our Villa was just gorgeous ....luxurious comfort and wonderful decor... More

We booked for 3 nights in early March. A couple of days before we arrived we called to ask if we could extend (in Villa 1) for an extra night. We were told no, it was booked. We were offered Villa 2 and said we would view it on arrival before deciding. We decided against Villa 2. It is not... More

Hi It's Peg here, I’m the owner of the Point Villas. You are raising a few things here and I feel it’s important to address your overall statements which are not correct. Firstly regarding the additional nights' booking. When you asked for the additional nights' booking, there was no ambiguity that you might not be staying and that you wanted... More

We have just stayed at the point villas and all I can say is wow! This has to be one of the most stunning places that we have stayed at. We arrived to be greeted by Peg who was an outstanding host and nothing was too much for her. We travelled with an 18 month old and she was so... More

We stayed in Villa 2 to celebrate my birthday and had a very enjoyable stay. The villas are well thought out with lovely amenities. They recommended yum catering who will come into your villa and prepare a three course meal. The location is remote from hub of Taupo but very serene and peaceful - just the respite we needed.

We had just one night here and wished we had had the time to extend. The Point Villas are located in a gated community and offer an unrivalled level of privacy. Peg and Brian, the hosts and owners are asbsolutely charming, were there to meet us and simply could not have been more helpful as they took their time to... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Point Villas and were extremely happy with everything. We were met by the owners, Peg & Brian, who were only too happy to show us around and point out where everything was. The villa was spotless as was the outside area. Peg was quick to point out what the main attractions were... More

From the moment we arrived we were enveloped in luxury and warmth. The villas are magnificent. The view is breathtaking. Peg, the owner greeted us and instantly made us feel that it was her mission to make our stay memorable. Peg's eye for detail is fantastic. The villa is decorated with beautiful memorabilia.

Whilst I had researched the accommodation nothing prepared us for the beautiful surroundings and the Villa 1 which we... More
