Welcome to The Top House - Lake Taupo

Here you can explore our stunning luxury holiday home and its secluded environment. Our guests are treated to comfort, space, privacy and spectacular views.

The Top House is an outstanding luxury award winning home located within beautifully landscaped gardens and native fauna at Whakamoenga Point, a private gated residential estate of 58 acres, ten minutes drive from Taupo township

The architectural award winning house designed by Fraser Cameron incorporates glass, timber and local stone to create a NZ ambience. The matai flooring which once graced the wool stores of neighbouring Hawkes Bay enhance its distinctly New Zealand design and characteristics. Described by NZIA judges as “… anchored to the land with it’s solid materials, texture and detail, the house floats out and above the bush to the almost overwhelming views of lake and mountain”.

The property is self contained with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. A second living room and games room, complete with billiard table, can double as additional bedrooms making this house suitable to sleep up to eight comfortably in uncompromising comfort.

The Top House is the perfect setting for intimate escapes, luxury weekends, family holidays, friend get togethers, reunions, small dinner parties/celebrations and golfing holidays. We welcome your enquiry.

All rooms of The Top House have spectacular views of the Lake and Central Plateau. To find more about The Top House Rooms, Location, History and Floor Plan, please click here.

We hope you choose to experience The Top House.

Customer reviews and ratings

We absolutely loved the Top House. Certainly a holiday home we will return to. The House and location is absolutely amazing, plenty of space for the eight of us. The views are to die for, no matter where you are in the house. The house had everything we needed during our five night stay. Extreme luxury and what a wonderful place to relax and spend time with loved ones.

Exceeded expectations. Top quality and excellent attention to detail.It was the highlight of our North Island stay. To be able to enjoy the spectacular views everyday was a blessing [regardless of the weather]. Plenty of space for families - all needs were catered for. Both families found it extremely difficult to leave - we will definately return. Thank you for making this amazing house available.
