“Uber luxurious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Point villas is a truly magical little paradise. 15 minutes away from the main town of Taupo this is a luxurious place for those who choose to live by their own. Peg is a fantastic host and ensures that guests have a great time while at point villas. We had a great conversation with her and other guests about culture, India, spirituality etc over pre dinner canapés. The villas are spacious with nice views of the bay and a cozy pool to enjoy. The special feature though I guess was the bathrooms with great rainforest setting outside. A perfect place those who enjoy being by themselves, this private little gem is just apt.
We stayed in Villa 1.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

Wow wow wow, not only architecturally stunning, each villa has been catered for with only the finest of detail, right down to the coffee and jams . The view was to die for, the pools where amazing. Every detail including the garden where family came together made you feel very special. The kids loved it, it was safe, and loads to do. Point villas are in a class of there own making us feel like we have truly relaxed and been spoilt, but its makes it more special by the owner peg, who is the loveliest person, nothing is to much trouble and will do anything for you like an old friend. Her warmth and kindness make this place stand out on its own. She is truly a remarkable lady. Thank you peg for allowing us to share in your amazing place of magic , can't wait to come back at Christmas

Breathtaking! The architectural design of the Point Villas blends in seamlessly with the beautiful scenery such that you feel one with nature whether sitting on the deck, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the couch, taking a shower, or soaking in the tub. Every detail is thoughtfully considered - from interior design, kitchen supplies, and lush bathroom towels, to ready access to in-room spa appointments, area activities, and even your own personal chef! Peg and Brian are warm and welcoming hosts, who share their love of the local area and people and provide a feeling of comfort from the moment you arrive. We will spend a lifetime reminiscing about our stay.

We stayed at Point Villas in February 2013. We could only stay 1 night, but could have stayed there forever! The setting is second to none and Peg and Brian the hosts are fabulous. We went with our 2 young boys and they were happy to be in the pool all day long whilst we soaked in the breathtaking views of the lake. Every detail has been taken care of by Peg. A wonderful and romantic place to stay - we would definitely go back if we return to NZ.

We stayed at Point Villas for 3 nights in October last year and we had the most amazing time. The villa is wonderful - it's been beautifully decorated and is incredibly comfortable. You can tell that a lot of love has gone into the design and the views are breathtaking. I could sit out on that patio overlooking the lake forever! Peg (the owner and host) is so welcoming and friendly and can suggest a wide range of activities to do nearby. She organised for us to go on a sunset cruise with Barbary Scenic Cruises and it was the perfect end to our stay there. This just felt like home from the moment we walked in - I really didn't want to leave. We preferred cooking in the villa and enjoying the peace and quiet but it's only about a 10mins drive away to the town if you want to go out and enjoy the restaurants. Lake Taupo is a beautiful area of New Zealand and there is so much to do. And the best thing? Coming back to Point Villas after a day's sightseeing!

Room Tip: Either room in the villa is fantastic and offer some great views

This was our 3rd stay at The Point Villas and as always our hosts Peg and Brian were most gracious and accommodating for any and every request that we had. This property is an immaculate, private and spacious retreat that offers breath taking views and the peace and tranquility of this private gated estate is spectacular. Attention to detail is impeccable, For our stay we were treated to home made shortbread and granola to mention just a couple of the thoughtful little touches. Their newest addition, the Magna solar heated lap pool, made for the perfect 5 star experience. Peg and Brian, thank you. We will be back again soon..

We headed to Taupo for some world class trout fishing but wanted accommodations to match the trophy fish. As picky travelers, we had done a fair amount of research before selecting the Point Villas. We were up for the opportunity to prepare a meal or two in the privacy of a spectacularly located and well appointed villa. The view is breathtaking. Our hostess, Peg Bull, was utterly charming and aimed to please, even picking up the Lord of the Rings trilogy to prepare us for our next venture into Middle Earth. A great deal of attention to detail is evidenced throughout...from the quality of the linens down to the perfect kitchen utensil. This is a special place and nice to come home to after battling trophy trout on the variety of rivers in the area.

Room Tip: Villa Number One...nothing to see but your own pool looking out to dramatic views of Lake Taupo.
