This traditional kiwi bach has all the basics for a classic summer stay as well as a generous section! It is close to the ski fields and National Park.

Enjoy relaxed and sunny open plan living or you can unwind on the deck and take in the peaceful scenery and fire up the BBQ! On those colder days you can stay snug indoors and take advantage of the board games, books and TV. The large flat section is great for families with plenty of space for kids to play.

The space
Motuoapa Escape is a 2 bedroom bach on Lake Taupo. Set on a generous section, this traditional kiwi bach has all the basics for a classic summer stay!

This Motuoapa bach has something for everyone: the boatie, the angler, the skier, the mountain biker, the family and the sunbather!

The bach is very well located, a short stroll to the lake and about 40mins drive to Whakapapa ski field and the iconic Tongariro Crossing. There are also several mountain bike trails nearby, such as the famous Timber Trail and Craters of the Moon. Turangi (the "Trout Capital of the World") is only a 10 minute drive away, while it is a 35 minute drive to central Taupo.

Motuoapa Escape offers relaxed and sunny open plan living or you can unwind on the deck and take in the peaceful scenery and fire up the BBQ! On those colder days you can stay snug indoors and take advantage of the board games, books and TV. The large flat section is great for families with plenty of space for kids to play.

There are 2 bedrooms at Motuoapa Escape, located just off the lounge. Bedroom 1 is fitted with a queen bed, while bedroom 2 has a double bed plus a single bed, and the couches in the lounge fold out into double beds for unexpected guests.

For days outdoors, you will be just moments from the lake and marina; bring your boat and park it in the ample space provided on the section! There is also wide space for camping, if needed. This is an ideal little getaway for 2 couples or a small family to enjoy a simple lake stay...

Welcome to Motuoapa Escape!

Guest access
Access to whole house and main garage which houses an old pool table, washing machine and dryer.

Other things to note
The Bach is on the main state highway which is a busy road. It has a lot of truck traffic and while improvements have been made to the road, there can still be noise from the trucks. The trucks also run through the night so if you are a light sleeper then this noise may disturb you.

Please note that there is NO WiFi and cell phone reception is poor.

While we do have a fan there is NO air conditioning.
