My partner and I stayed for 2 nights to celebrate a significant birthday. The combination of a perfect location with beautiful views and privacy made for a perfect weekend. We could not have asked for a better time. Elle was extremely helpful and friendly to communicate with which put the icing on the cake. Thank you again for a wonderful... More

Only stayed for one night which was such a waste to appreciate a wonderful apartment. The website had been rather confusing as the apartments are individually owned, but after contacting the managing agent everything was explained and the booking process straightforward. I had wanted a different apartment but was assured that apartment 8 was excellent, as it was. On arrival,... More

What a lovely apartment and location. We had a perfect experience during the Ironman week. Elle was very easy to communicate with and book via email. We slightly changed dates - no problem. The location is brilliant. It was right on "Hot Beach" where the thermal springs are and just a couple of km's along the lake side into town.... More

We stayed in two apartments for the weekend and they were not only adequate for our group of 11, but they were very clean, and the view/ facilities were brilliant. 5/5. We will be coming back for sure!

We stayed in apartment 4 the week of ironman New Zealand and it was the most wonderful place to base ourselves. The apartment is huge and beautifully furnished, with a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and the lake. No bikes were allowed inside but there was a suitable secure area for storing them. The location is good - just a... More

I booked this accommodation for our New Year trip to Taupo through NZ Apartments Website. All payments came through as soon as the booking was confirmed online. However, the booking confirmation was cancelled by the host a few hours before we hit the road. The reason given was that no accommodation was available despite the website showed there was. The...

We are really sorry about this scenario. It was complete human error that your booking was accepted and if at all possible we would have found some accommodation for you. I would however like to note that this booking was made on the morning of the 1st January 2015 to check in on the 2nd January 2015. Your booking was... More

We have stayed at Waimahana twice now. The first time in apartment 10, which we were happy with, but this time we were fortunate enough to have apartment 8 - absolutely fantastic views. The apartment was very quiet and comfortable. The only possible complaint could be the towels - they were old and scratchy. Everything else was perfect.

Had a fabulous weekend on from 14-16 November. Apt 11 is 3-bedrooms + 2-bathrooms and the photos on the ttp://www.luxurylakesideaccommodation.co.nz/accommodation/ website are accurate. The apartment is very well furnished/stocked although remember to bring your own coffee/tea + milk. Note the apartment is on the second/top floor and is road-side however, with the blinds tilted the noise was minimal. The balcony... More
