Two villas, Tatamoana and Ngahere, sit nestled in native bush overlooking Lake Taupo’s Mine Bay. With their clever blend of natural surroundings and elegant interiors, they are The Point Villas, a peaceful, private environment where guests can escape and enjoy the ultimate indulgent holiday.
Each self-catering villa features classic oak furniture, leather lounge suites and original local artwork. Their spacious living rooms open out to large private terraces, each with its own Magna solar heated pool, barbecue and outdoor furniture. For winter, open gas fireplaces and heat pumps ensure warmth and comfort indoors. The beautifully appointed kitchens are equipped with the finest European appliances.
The Point Villas are located on Whakamoenga Point, an exclusive estate with full security access. The Villas are set within 58 acres of native bushland and exotic plantings on the edge of Lake Taupo – the very heart of New Zealand’s North Island. Each private villa terrace looks out to these native forests and the changing hues and reflections of Lake Taupo’s Mine Bay. Dramatic mountain views of Ruapehu, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Pihanga can be seen across the lake from the Estate.
The Point Villas are only 10 minutes drive from the thriving township of Taupo, which means guests enjoy both complete privacy and the convenience of being close to public amenities and services. Taupo is a 3½ hour drive south from Auckland or 4½ hours north from Wellington.

The spacious living area of Villa One (Tatamoana) looks out across the deck and pool to Lake Taupo’s Mine Bay. With generous bedrooms and bathrooms on either side of the living area, Villa One’s sunny aspect creates a warm, relaxing and enviting environment.
Villa Two / Ngahere
Villa Two’s large living room extends outdoors to a terrace, lawn and swimming pool. The bedroom and ensuite on the main ground floor enjoy afternoon sun and a glimpse of the lake whilst the upstairs bedroom provides wider views of the lake. A third bedroom and ensuite are available, if required, on the upper level.
