“5 star alternative New Zealand lodge experience”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Well, we have just returned to Wellington after two amazing days and nights on Lake Taupo, staying at the luxury 'Point Villas.' Owners of the 5 star property, Peg and Brian were on hand to assist and advise on things to do in the area and were only too happy to join us for drinks on the terrace by the swimming pool overlooking the stunning lake at sunset. Being Autumn the trees were turning a magnificent shade of gold, green, yellow and red which made the view even more attractive. The villa we stayed at was fitted out with everything you could wish for, (Peg has an excellent eye for detail) Glass in hand, it was a real pleasure to be cooking overlooking the beach down below by the lakeside! The 360 degree all round glass shower ensured a view like no other from the bathroom, I have travelled a great deal but never experienced anything so natural as that! Tow nights was not enough of course, but we have told Peg we shall definitely be returning.

We have been lucky enough to have stayed at many luxury lodges throughout New Zealand but we definitely recommend The Point Villas if you are after a break from the three meal a day lodge experience and want some peace and quiet in an environment that only in your dreams could you call home....!

Room Tip: Villa1 - superb views and extremely luxurious!

Travelled with 4 couples in New Zealand and stayed at Point Villas. Very clean, well appointed , and well stocked for breakfast. A beautiful villa with outstanding service by the owner, Peg. Met every need from assisting with acitivites and hiring a chef to cook dinner. Highly recommend staying at Point Villas

Just had the most divine relaxing couple of days staying in Villa One with my two children. Loved the surroundings, the bath and showers were bliss - felt like we were surrounded by nature - gorgeous views and luxurious amenities. Felt like we were in our own little world.

We stayed in Villa 1 over the New Year period. The villa was cosy, luxurious and perfectly set up for two couples. What made this place first-class was the attention to detail. Everything from the architecture to the amenities was well-appointed and designed. My favourite feature was the bathroom overlooking the lake and lush vegetation. Peg, the host, is delightful and made our stay so much more enjoyable. If we get an opportunity to return to Lake Taupo, we will definitely stay here again!

We are a German Family with 3 Kids and spend x-mas 2013 in the wonderful "The Point Villa" at Lake Taupo! What should i say: i think, you can't get a better place there! It was charming, cozy, a indescribable view from every room and especially from the terrace! The showers and the bathtub give you a jungle feeling - great! Peg, the owner, is a very kind and mindful person! Was great to met her! Hope, we can come back sometimes!
