About this Holiday House

Wharerakau offers a rare combination of stunning location right beside the lake, privacy and gorgeous views. Just step from the garden to the beach. If you have a boat you can moor it on Wharerakau's buoy only 20 metres from the lake edge. The accommodation is stylish and very comfortable. Step through the front door and you will feel as if you are on the lake. Native birdsong fills the garden. Perfect peace at the end of a cul de sac. The reserve next to Wharerakau leads to a lake edge bush walk tracing the bays and beaches of Acacia Bay. Yet a handy general store and popular restaurant are three minutes drive away. Taupo town is only 10 minutes away. Kayaks are available for guest use. Tennis courts are available three minutes walk from the house. Taupo is a year-round holiday destination in the scenic heart of the North Island.

Bob
Magical Spot right on the lake. Path to the lake from the house. Short walk to some excellent swimming beaches and also a very good dairy and cafe within a 15 minutes' walk. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend.
Joanna
We have stayed in Wharerakau a number of times, sometimes twice a year, for up to two weeks at a time since 2012. Wharerakau is a treasure both inside and out. The house is always clean, feels fresh and invites you to relax in one of its cozy corners whilst enjoying the stunning lake view by day and lights of Taupo by night. The kitchen is well equiped and bedrooms comfortable. The surrounding mature garden and trees allow privacy and yet good sun with a pathway leading directly from the front lawn to the lake and private mooring. Wharerakau truly is a sanctuary providing both relaxation as well as easy access to water sport and bush walks. We love it and can't wait to be back there again soon.
Brenda
Even better than last time we stayed. Great fun kayaking around the Bays, walks with the dog (great we were allowed). Easy access to the awesome cafes etc in Taupo. Great with Sky TV to watch the sport & Speedy WIFI. A very cosy fabulous place to stay. Saving for the next time - longer I hope. BAF
