We stayed at the Top House in December. What a wonderfully designed house with amazing views of the lake. We were 2 couples and we each took a bedroom with the direct views of the lake and mountains, what a way to waken up in the morning. You need a car as main restaurants are about 15-20 minute drive.

We rented this house for two night recently. It has truly amazing views of the lake. The architecture of the house maximizes the beautiful scenery with floor to ceiling windows in every room. There is a large central room with two separate seating areas, the dining area and kitchen in between. It's perfect for families. Would highly recommend if you... More

The view is the first thing that strikes you as you walk into the front door. You feel as if you are on top of the lake. Amazing 180 degree 100% LAKE view. Each room has... More

We travelled from Australia to spent a long weekend here at the Top House to celebrate our good friend's 50th birthday. We shared the accomodation with 4 other couples and two teenagers. Beautifully designed, winning a NZ architectural award, we wanted for nothing. There was plenty of room and all furnishings, beds, linen and amenities were top class. Top House... More

We stayed at the Top House for two nights on a trip through New Zealand and it was absolutely fantastic. The house's location is enough to leave you in awe but then you start to look around the house itself and it is just incredible. Floor to ceiling windows almost everywhere overlooking Lake Taupo (New Zealand's largest lake) with five... More
