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

This was a luxury apartment in a beautiful location close to Lake Taupo. The walking and cycle track went past the door. Garage parking for 2 cars was appreciated. The township was a short car ride away where the restaurants and cafes were located.

We stayed in a 3 bed roomed apartment on the lake side with magnificent views over the lake and to the mountains. Near town but far enough away to be away from any noise. Underfloor heating. A massive balcony and a gas fire place. Make sure you ask for lake side because there is a noisy road on the other... More

We stayed in Apartment 3 which overlooks the thermally heated pool and no obstructive views directly to the lake which faces back over to the pretty lights at night to the main part of Taupo. The apartment would have been one of the largest, cleanest and well designed with beautiful decor we have ever stayed in! No problem with communications... More

Very spacious 3 bedroom apartment. Had everything including baking tins, mixer, things you would have at home. Lovely decor. Thought the ensuite bathroom was strange with no door but kinda matched the set up for the room and bathroom eg, twin shower. Clean, tidy, stylish, modern, liked the set up and Sky on demand. Got to record Coronation street while... More
