“Just Perfect !”
Reviewed 13 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a wonderful moment in that house. We were a party of 9 ( 3 teens, 2 couples, 2 singles) and we were really confortable each of us. The place is just magic just front of the lake and minutes walk from Taupo downtown.
Tuk, the manager who welcomed us, had the nice attention to have fruits on the table and milk, orange juice and eggs in the fridge!!! Just made us feel like we were coming back home. And the hot tub downstairs is just awesome after long walks and spots activity that we had during our stay.
Just one word for this lodge and our entire stay : PERFECT!
Thank you

“Great Location”
Reviewed 17 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Great location. Family friendly but not for little ones - very steep stairs.
Well equipped with linen and breakfast provided. The house is really hot when the sun shines directly into the living area in the evenings so sleeping was a problem again for the little ones.

“Amazing home; great host”
Reviewed 24 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

This house is gorgeous and Tuk was excellent. He met us at the house. He had it so well stocked with eggs, milk, butter, oj, bread and plenty of fresh fruit. The house is so well stocked with everything you need: well stocked kitchen with tons of spices; excellent lines, even bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, soap, laundry detergent, trash bags... seem like easy things but baby houses don’t provide these items. They even provide spa towels. The house has an amazing deck and great view. Great sound system.
The only reason I didn’t give this house a 5 was due to the temperature and bugs. We rented in summer and it was quite hot. We had to leave the windows open or it would be too hot. Our adult children slept downstairs. When they woke up, there were tons of bugs in their room and in their bed. they had several bites. Screens would help.

But I still recommend this house.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 4 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Great location. Quiet yet just off central road. Clean, spacious and well equipped. The warm pool, private spas, free bikes and a laundry were more than many hotels offer. Breakfast can even be delivered to your room. A real gem.

“Superb, homely lakefront house with everything you could need”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed 4 magical days and nights with friends and our newfees. Tuk gave us a great welcome and was well able to cope with our slobbering "bears". Adults, children and dogs were all able to do there own thing and when we came together for meals, the kitchen had everything our "chef" could want.
The wine fridge is a great idea and when the sun shone the deck was fantastic for sitting out and look at the lake and mountains.
We will return!!

“A very memorable stay”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Such a memorable experience. We were greeted with a smile and taken on a tour of this very lovely property. It was Winter and the home was warm and welcoming. The bed linen was beautiful and the beds comfortable. The kitchen was very well appointed and the open fire was cosy and warm. Such a beautiful weekend shared with our Family from Auckland.

We would most certainly come and stay again. Sincere thanks for your efforts and professionalism. From Elizabeth Wilmot Havelock North

“Beautiful property!”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We completely loved our week at Greenwood Lodge in Taupo, NZ! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook lovely meals for the group. We even had USA cooking measures!

The views of the beautiful Lake Taupo were breathtaking, and it was great to have the natural hot springs tub right in the house!

Lovely property and lovely memories were made . We will return.
