The Point Villas
Ranked #13 of 34 Speciality Lodging in Taupo
Reviewed 17 December 2011

We would highly recommend Point Villas to a couple or two couples looking for a private and 5 star holiday. We enjoyed the self catering as we love to cook and the kitchen was one of the best equipped and classy kitchens we have seen. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable with every last detail catered for.

The views are wonderful, and the surrounding gardens are luxurious. And just to ensure your stay is perfect, Peg and Brian are generous and welcoming hosts.

We travel the world staying in luxury accommodation from the US thru out Aust and the Point Villas rates with the best. Great hosts,amazing views to die for, so quiet and private we felt like the only people in this gorgeous gated natural reserve. The fridge was stocked, wines if you wanted to have a bottle and the most spotless housekeeping we ever experienced this is a place to totally chill and do nothing or if you like walks that are breathtaking along the most stunning lake ever. We loved it. And yes we will be back.

We were greeted by Peg Bull on our arrival, the hospitality was unforgettable as was the Villa. It made our visit to New Zealand a truly memorable one.
The Villa is fabulous, well appointed and perfectly situated for a wonderful stay in Lake Taupo.
There is great attention to detail throughout the Villa, from the moment we walked in we knew that we were in for a memorable stay. We enjoyed our stay so much we were lucky enough to be able to stay an extra night.
Peg went out of her way to ensure that not only our stay at the Point Villas but our whole trip to New Zealand was an unforgettable experience.
I would recommend the Villas to anyone looking to experience New Zealand at it best. We would love to return to the Villas.

Great location for a long weekend in Taupo. Very private, fantastic lake views, lots of native birdlife, nice place to go for winter walks! The house was fantastic with all the basic food items (oil, flower etc). Without these you never want to cook but with them there it was a pleasure to cook as the kitchen had all the equipment you have at home.Very enjoyable. We will be back!

The Point Villas are located in a tranquil and secure gated environment a short 10 minute drive from Taupo. My initial impressions upon entering the villa were sheer excitment and delight given the quality of the decor and the stunning view with the infinity pool in the foreground. The secure environment provides a fantastic location for a family break given the number of activities available such as kayaking on the lake (and being able to view the stunning Maori carvings), walks along the lake foreshore, tennis, fishing swimming, etc, etc.

A real highlight of the stay was a hot bath on a rainy afternoon with full floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the lake and native bush - lovely.

All needs where fully catered for and if anything was required the friendly and helpful hosts were only too happy to address your needs.

We enjoyed the stay so much, we changed our travel plans to enable us to stay another night.

Right from when we made the booking to our actual stay, every aspect of the point villas exceeded our expectations. When we booked they were flexible with our check in and check out times and as we were staying for more than 3 days we were given a reduced rate. When we arrived we couldn't believe the setting...it was truely magnificent...nestled in amongst the bush and overlooking the most beautiful bay with a small island in the middle offset against blue green waters. Just across from us were Tennis courts and all around us wonderful bush tracks leading down to the rocks, little beaches and old moari caves. The environment is filled with native bush, plants and birdlife. We were able to kayak around the rocks with kayaks provided. The Villas themselves were first class.....tasteful interiors, beautiful furniture, the most comfortable beds...absolutely everything felt luxurious. The bathrooms were a feature in themselves...fully glassed and looking into the bush or a rock waterfall. Our kids had a fantastic time on the beaches, in the kayaks and exploring the bush tracks. The views over the whole estate are just the thing to leave you feeling inspired. We will definately be going back to re experience what was a very special experience.
