“Fantastic hosts, outstanding luxury accommodation.”
Reviewed 24 March 2015

My wife and I recently stayed at the Point Villas and were extremely happy with everything. We were met by the owners, Peg & Brian, who were only too happy to show us around and point out where everything was. The villa was spotless as was the outside area. Peg was quick to point out what the main attractions were in the Lake Taupo area which we appreciated very much although we were quite content to spend most of the first day in doors.

The first thing we did was take a swim and lounge by the pool - our evening drink as the sun set was memorable as the views from the deck were simply stunning. We had done a shop and were quite happy cooking our dinner at the wonderful fully equipped kitchen.

We stayed just two nights and wished it had been longer. Peg & Brian were fabulous hosts and yes, without hesitation I strongly recommend staying at the Point Villas - especially if you want to get away from the more traditional 'lodge experience'.

Room Tip: Both villas are outstanding - one has more bedrooms but each has a pool and deck with outstanding vi...

From the moment we arrived we were enveloped in luxury and warmth. The villas are magnificent. The view is breathtaking. Peg, the owner greeted us and instantly made us feel that it was her mission to make our stay memorable. Peg's eye for detail is fantastic. The villa is decorated with beautiful memorabilia. We felt as though we were in her own home.
We loved the way she stocked the pantry with all kinds of goodies she thought we might like. The kitchen was equipped with every cooking gadget you could possibly want. We loved the quality of the towels and the bed linen. The toiletries were only the best.
All this paled into insignificance when Peg offered to drive us wherever we needed to go! It doesn't get any better than this!

My husband and I recently arrived for a few days at lake Taupo. We had cruised from Sydney to Auckland on celebrity solstice and then picked up a hire car and drove the 3.30hrs to Taupo and the beautiful Point Villas. Whilst I had researched the accommodation nothing prepared us for the beautiful surroundings and the Villa 1 which we had booked. The owner Peg greeted us soon after our arrival and brought with her some beautiful fresh bread. After showing us around she and Brian left us to settle in. We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights here, my husband had two wonderful days fly fishing with local guide Brent Pirie whilst I enjoyed the peace and tranquility that is Point Villas. On our final evening Peg and Brian joined us for a drink and chat. We were sorry to leave but we will be back

This was our second trip to the Point Villas, Unit One. The location is spectacular offering privacy, beautiful views and comfort. The villa is well appointed with great attention to detail and perfect for the serious chef or entertaining! Although we had some issues with the operation of the TV for Super Bowl Sunday, our hostess was prompt in dealing with the problem sending help right away. And, upon leaving a few things behind, she even drove over an hour to deliver them to our next stop! Above and beyond...

We stayed at The Point Villas for three nights and we fell in love with it. It is secluded from the hustle and bustle of the main city centre, creating a special sanctuary without making its guests feel isolated. It is a feast for the eyes. From the lush gardens with lavender dancing in the afternoon breeze to the French Inspired interiors. Everything was in immaculate condition. The views of the bay area was breathtaking and the sunsets left us speechless. The attention to detail was incredible. Everything has been thought of and the gracious hospitality from the hosts from our arrival to our departure was special! Spectacular hosts! We already planning a trip back!
