Need Advice for Accomodation in Taupo Area

Hi Everyone,

We are leaving for New Zealand tomorrow and still have not settled on our accomodation in Taupo area (which will be around Jan. 30).

I did a lot of research, the more research I do, the more confused I get. This is what I would like: A nice place with a VIEW. Some of the lodges I looked at look like someone's luxury home converted into a lodge. The last time I stayed at someting similar to that in the South Island, we did not feel comfortable - felt like living with strangers and had to socialize with the owners and other guests. Not that we are anti-social, but sometimes you just don't feel like it.

We stayed at the Pepermint Grove in Western Australia (click on my name and see my review)last year and really liked it. It's an individual chalet in a tranquil setting, full privacy, is there anything like that around Taupo? I am willing to pay around NZD$500/night.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Tauranga, New...

Hi jhw0101,

In Taupo, the closest option you may have:




Those are more as apartments and are not exactly lodges, but definatly may provode comfortable and private atmosphere, as well as amazing lake view.

You also may find a few lodges within your requirements but they are located outside of Taupo within 20-40 mins driving time.

Hope this help.
