Stunning riverfront views
Perhaps the first thing you will notice when you arrive at Riverside Apartment are the amazing views. Floor-to-ceiling double glazing allows panoramic vistas of the wide, blue Waikato River passing below and across to the green open space of the domain. These views can be taken in from the kitchen, dining, living area, balcony and the master bedroom - they are truly spectacular.
'Riverside Apartment' - sleeps up to 8 people
Two queen sized beds are complimented by four bunk beds in the third bedroom. A portacot is also available. The master bedroom takes in the same magnificent view that the living and dining areas overlook.
Self catering apartment with laundry facilities
You can prepare meals in the fully appointed kitchen and savour a glass of wine while taking in the calming, panoramic views of the river gliding past the front of the apartment. Or, a ten minute stroll finds you in the centre of Taupo township, with its many restaurants, bars, cafes, boutique art galleries and shops. Riverside Apartment is conveniently placed close to Taupo town but enjoys absolute tranquility, away from roads and noise.
A downstairs laundry, private - not shared - with washing machine, drier and clothes line is available for our guests.
Taupo and Lake Taupo - excitement, water sports, fishing, world-class events and concerts, culture, fantastic dining - and relaxation await
Found on the shore of Australasia's largest fresh water lake, Taupo is world famous as New Zealand's North Island playground. Adrenaline-pumping activities include bungy-jumping, jet boating, white water rafting and skydiving. If that's just a little too much excitement you can bike the lake trails, hike through native bush or explore the many cultural and historical sites in the area. Check out the many things to do including the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
Home to a series of events (mostly in summer) the Taupo domain and amphitheatre is literally just across the river from our apartment - so you can open up the sliding doors and listen to concerts for free and from the comfort of the apartment! Check out our events page for more information on future concerts.
The thermal wonderland that surrounds Taupo offers a glimpse into its fiery origin. Lake Taupo was predominantly created by a volcanic blast some 26,000 years ago - geysers, boiling mud pools and warm, geothermal hotpools are all within easy reach of Riverside Apartment.
Wind down in one of the towns' many cafes, bars or restaurants - or indulge in perhaps the best view of all from the lounge of our apartment and plan what lies ahead for tomorrow.

In addition to the pool we have Mission kayaks for the exclusive use of Riverside Apartment guests. They are ultra-stable and with us being right by the river so easy to launch for a quick paddle, or try your luck at fishing in the lake.
