Striking Lake Views, with a private tranquil feel. Only 4 minute walk to the lake and 5min drive or relaxing 30min stroll along the lakefront path to the centre of town.
The decor reflects beautiful blues from the lake and continues into the cottage giving it a serene feel. With a heat pump you will stay cozy over winter. Your guest house has everything for a relaxing quiet business trip, couples getaway or solo adventure and for short stays, there are two single beds in a separate room.

The space
The main room with a comfortable Queen bed, overlooks the lake and mountains, is fitted with a wardrobe, drawers, bedside tables, pullout desktop, 2 lounge chairs and a TV.
This combined space also has a kitchenette, including 2 induction hobs.
A round occasional table for two can be used for dining indoors when the weather is not conducive to al fresco.

The second room in the cottage has a wardrobe and two single beds available if you require, to book short stays with extra guests.

For the winter months we have a heat pump which means you can stay warm and cosy.

Where you’ll be

Taupo, Waikato, New Zealand

Hilltop is close to town and a friendly community. Our cottage is very quiet and peaceful considering its proximity to town. You will be a close 4 minute walk to the lake - great for cooling off on hot summer days or finding a hot water spot when the temperature drops.
Taupo De Bretts Spa and Hotpools are only 2 mins drive up the road where you can relax in the geothermal pools or get a massage. Espresso Cove which is 400m down the road and right on the lakefront is a great place for a spot of breakfast/ lunch or even just pick me up coffee and 350 metres south of the lakefront is the Millennium Resort restaurants. A Mobile service station for some basic supplies is very close by on Lake Terrace townside of the intersection with Napier Rd.
