“Amazing surrounds inside and out. Our kids loved it.”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Greenwood lodge is idyllic. Situated on the shore of one of Lake Taupo's, hot-water beaches made it the perfect home for our family holiday. The thermal bath was outstanding, and the kids loved it. Greenwood lodge is extensive, super comfortable, luxurious and warm. The lake front path way is at the back door too which was a real bonus!! The lake, the view and proximity to the mountains,the close facilities (5 min to town), the thermal bath, the beautiful surrounds and the open fire made it the most perfect week away. Thanks to Tuk also. He had everything in hand from the word go.

Amazing house, plenty of room for everyone. Wonderful to wake up to the sound of the Lake so close by. Very homely feel, highly recommend.

“Great location right on the lake front & plenty of room for the family”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed with the extended family, Taupo is great due to being central for everyone travelling. Located directly on the lake front with plenty of room we throughly enjoyed our weekend. Even with the weather not the best kids were able to take advantage of all the space, pool, big lawn and use scooters on cycle path along the lake front. If you need a cafe - one located short walk. We had a great time and would certainly use again.

“The Greenwood Lodge is Magic!”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed at the Greenwood Lodge for a week with my husband. I only wish we would have had a boatload of friends and family to share it with. The house is beautiful and perfectly appointed. Tuk who is the local manager was incredibly gracious, welcoming and helpful.

We were amazed to find ourselves staying right on a "hot beach", the sand was actually hot and the water warm. Very, very unique experience! I highly recommend the Greenwood Lodge as well as the owner's Bach in Hawkes Bay. We were lucky enough to stay at both!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our stay was for a family wedding and Greenwood Lodge was amazing. The weather was perfect, the lake, sunsets, mountains were beyond description, and we did need to move. Grocery shopping was done at 7.30 am so as to get back to the Lodge and enjoy. We love the style of the Lodge, and so much space. It was the perfect place for precious family time, and of course the lake access is perfect. We swam, paddleboarded, water skied in front of the Lodge every day. Yes it was a special treat to stay there, but so worth it. The management from the first point of contact to meeting the onsite Manager was great. So very helpful and obliging. Excellent communication. We all slept well,including one baby.
Thank you Greenwood Lodge lodge to both the Management and Owners.
