Many of Taupo Bay Lodge guests have left testimonials after their stay. So don’t take our word for it, read what others have had to say about our Taupo Bay accommodation.

Alternatively, if you’ve spent some time at the lodge, we would love to hear your feedback.

Wow! This house is beyond amazing with lots of great entertaining areas and a really well equipped kitchen. The property managers kept in contact in case we needed anything and were incredibly helpful and welcoming. I could not recommend this house enough and we will be back to stay again!

A great family relax and recharge.  Caught Taupo Bay in many moods and a couple of snapper off the rocks!
Surely the best shower view in the world!
Thanks for all the comforts of home and then some. A treasured land and seascape, not to mention an inspiring art gallery and sculpture park.

Such a beautiful place, I liked it a lot. As soon as we opened the door it took our breath away, and it did just that again when we opened our eyes. We would like to come back again. Thank you very much for the lovely wine and the book

Thank you so much for letting us rent this amazing place for a whole week! We have enjoyed every second – the house, the views, the beach, kayaking, Kauri Tree Forest, Cape Reinga, 90 Mile Beach. Very nice memories to take back to winter-cold Norway. Thanks to Todd and his family and also to Kevyn who must be a multi-talent! All the books, photos and artworks. Very interesting! Welcome to Norway!
