“Heavenly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Just had the most divine relaxing couple of days staying in Villa One with my two children. Loved the surroundings, the bath and showers were bliss - felt like we were surrounded by nature - gorgeous views and luxurious amenities. Felt like we were in our own little world.

We stayed in Villa 1 over the New Year period. The villa was cosy, luxurious and perfectly set up for two couples. What made this place first-class was the attention to detail. Everything from the architecture to the amenities was well-appointed and designed. My favourite feature was the bathroom overlooking the lake and lush vegetation. Peg, the host, is delightful and made our stay so much more enjoyable. If we get an opportunity to return to Lake Taupo, we will definitely stay here again!

We are a German Family with 3 Kids and spend x-mas 2013 in the wonderful "The Point Villa" at Lake Taupo! What should i say: i think, you can't get a better place there! It was charming, cozy, a indescribable view from every room and especially from the terrace! The showers and the bathtub give you a jungle feeling - great! Peg, the owner, is a very kind and mindful person! Was great to met her! Hope, we can come back sometimes!

This is the first place we stay during our vacation to New Zealand. We arrived in the late evening and were greeted by Peg, our friendly host. The moment we were introduced to our villa we were amazed by the luxurious yet cosy design of the villa. We unloaded our luggage and Peg recommended some good restaurants to us for our dinner. The villa is just about 10-15 min drive from the main town of Taupo so it is quite convenient located. The next morning when we woke up we got our second surprise. This was because when we arrive the day before the sky was dark and we didn't really notice the view outside the glass doors. Just imagine the moment you open your eyes when u wake up and u were greeted by the stunning views of Lake Taupo and it is so close to you. The villa provides almost everything that is needed. I have to pay our gratitude to Peg. She had provided a perfect balance between hospitality and privacy to us during our stay. We feel very much like home and well taken care of. She have attended all the request that we have made and even a case of emergency. Thank you so much Peg. If we have a chance to visit Taupo again, we will definitely come to stay here again.

Alas we only had a single night to enjoy the beauty, serenity, and luxury of the Point Villas during a recent visit to Taupo, but I was very glad to have had even such a short amount of time at this stunning spot. The décor of the villas is exceptional in every way, from the La Cornue stoves to the beautiful furniture and the art that adorns the walls (much of it painted by the father of the Point Villas' host, the inimitable Peg). The location is above Mine Bay on Lake Taupo, and is surrounded by lush vegetation with dramatic nighttime lighting that makes you feel as if you are in the deepest forest, rather than a short drive from a thriving town. When I return to Taupo, I'll certainly want to stay here again!

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.

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
