What our guest have to say:

This was our 3rd stay at The Point Villas and as always our hosts Peg and Brian were most gracious and accommodating for any and every request that we had.  This property is an immaculate, private and spacious retreat that offers breath taking views and the peace and tranquility of this private gated estate is spectacular.  Attention to detail is impeccable,  For our stay we were treated to home made shortbread and granola to mention just a couple of the thoughtful little touches. Their newest addition, the Magna solar heated lap pool, made for the perfect 5 star experience.  Peg and Brian, thank you.  We will be back again soon.

An Exceptional Hideaway,

Great accommodation and wonderful area, with the peace and quiet making it so relaxing.

First light glimmers on Lake Taupo as we slip into the silent, bracing water. We are alone, but for a fantail performing a merry dance. Read the full article.

The Point has practical and luxury facilities you could find anywhere in the world but it has one very big extra – it is in a clean, unspoiled and natural environment.

An alternative to staying at a luxury lodge while retaining accommodation and servicing options at the same level of indulgence and seclusion.

Cuisine Magazine,

For guests, the challenge is deciding which of the two Villas to stay in. Villa One (Tatamoana), the lower dwelling, has the expansive lake vistas & wraparound deck, while Villa Two (Ngahere) seems more spacious and on two levels

Urbis Landscapes,

I was fortunate enough to meet Peg, the proprietress of The Point Villas in Taupo New Zealand on our recent trip to New Zealand. The Point Villas is an incredible piece of paradise that should meet the needs of any discerning traveler. Peg’s attention to detail (this included freshly made pancake mix ready for our breakfast), and her willingness to personally be there to meet all our needs and answer any queries, makes me happy to highly recommend The Point Villas as a travel destination for fellow travel associates.

Thank you very much for your hospitality over the last few days. Even though the weather didn’t play its part fully we had a lovely time and you have a beautiful property in a great location. Once again many thanks for making us feel so welcome. We look forward to visiting the Point Villas again on our next trip to your part of the world.

What a wonderful retreat, so peaceful and beautiful… We couldn’t have asked for anything more. To be surrounded by tropical birds and a small waterfall whilst bathing was delightful, private and peaceful. Thank you for making us so welcome in your beautiful home.

Thank you for nice and beautiful house. We enjoyed you and this house. New Zealand is my favourite country. How I love it! I am sure we will come back again. I told to my husband “I don’t want to rent this but I want to buy.

Michael & Yoshiko Ito,

The Point Villas are located in a tranquil and secure gated environment a short 10 minute drive from Taupo. My initial impressions upon entering the villa were sheer excitment and delight given the quality of the decor and the stunning view with the infinity pool in the foreground. The secure environment provides a fantastic location for a family break given the number of activities available such as kayaking on the lake (and being able to view the stunning Maori carvings), walks along the lake foreshore, tennis, fishing swimming, etc, etc.

A real highlight of the stay was a hot bath on a rainy afternoon with full floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the lake and native bush – lovely.

All needs where fully catered for and if anything was required the friendly and helpful hosts were only too happy to address your needs.

We enjoyed the stay so much, we changed our travel plans to enable us to stay another night.
