When you park your car outside your unit at Lakeside Villas, Lake Taupo, and this is the view that you see, you can be sure you have arrived at a beautiful destination for your week’s holiday.
The lake can be seen from the bedrooms upstairs …
…and from the window seat downstairs.
Downstairs is an attractive living area – and a huge spa pool right outside the ranch sliders.
It was a bit chilly to use the bikes and kayaks while we were there. In the warmer months it would be so good to simply cross the road and have a paddle on the lake.
In fact, while we were there, a fresh layer of snow landed overnight on the volcanoes across the lake.
