Easy walking distance to Taupo township

Walk from our river-front holiday home to the Taupo marina for a coffee and then around the lakefront to the amazing scenery of Great Lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake. An easy stroll to supermarkets (or home after a night on the town) means that our apartment is the ideal spot to explore Taupo on foot.

Riverside Apartment is found in the Watermark Villas complex at 14 Norman Smith Street, Taupo.

Close to the Huka Falls and other attractions

Taupo is the adventure playground of the North Island of New Zealand and Riverside Apartment offers quality accommodation at a great price in close proximity to many of the activities around the town and area.

Home to iconic Taupo events such as IronMan New Zealand, the Taupo Cycle Challenge and Great Lake Relay, Riverside Two is the perfect event accommodation. For tourists new to our beautiful country, there is no better place to base yourself as cultural activities and tourist hot-spots such as the Huka Falls and geothermal areas (Craters of the Moon, Wairakei and Orakei Korako) are just a few minutes away. Skiing on Mount Ruapehu or walking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing are also wonderful experiences, all within easy reach.

Whether mountain biking, sky-diving, multi-sport action, running, bungy jumping - or something more tranquil like golf, wine, shopping or exploring the many walks is your thing, Riverside Apartment is the perfect holiday accommodation in Taupo.

Stunning river views

Onsite swimming pool


Trout fishing from the riverbanks

Bring your fishing gear (or hire some in town) and cast for dinner. Plenty of trout have been caught right from in front of our apartment - there is nothing better than freshly caught and cooked trout, especially when it's just so easy to grab your rod and head downstairs to the river.

Launch the kayaks from in front of the apartment

We provide two free kayaks, paddles and life jackets for use by our guests and our riverfront location is perfect for an easy launch.
