Sleeps up to six people in two bedrooms Booking request
Wonderful and roomy, a modern open-plan living space spread over 157m2
Delightful, spacious, penthouse-style apartment
Having all living, dining and sleeping areas on the one upper level is simply fantastic. The wonderful views can be enjoyed from the lounge and are spectacular from the master bedroom.
Kitchen and dining
In our well equipped and modern kitchen you will find everything you need - just like being at home. Serve up at the table, breakfast bar or enjoy 'al fresco' on the balcony. A dual-drawer dishwasher means nobody is left with the cleaning up after meals. Fridge/freezer, microwave, electric hob (with rangehood) and oven, jug, toaster and coffee press are all available.
The dining area seats up to six people with additional bar stools also available for the kitchen 'breakfast bar'.
The large balcony is fitted with bar-leaner style table and four stools. Some of the best views in the entire apartment are to be enjoyed here and there are few things in life more pleasant than a cold drink taken on the balcony of Riverside Two as the blue Waikato River meanders below you.
Relax on the chaise overlooking the river or kick back and watch a movie or catch up on your favourite TV series with our complimentary Netflix. High speed unlimited Wifi is also provided free of charge. TV channels are also available.
Great audio is available through our Wharfdale soundbar - simply connect your phone, tablet or laptop via bluetooth to play your music.
The sofa converts to a double bed for extra sleeping space. The dining table comfortably seats six people and four stools around the 'waterfall' style bench are perfect for grabbing breakfast from the well-equipped kitchen before heading out to see some of Taupo's amazing things to do.
A queen bed in the master bedroom (waking up to the majestic river views is a wonderful experience) - and two single beds in the second bedroom. A sofa bed is available if you require extra bedding for up to six people.
Full-sized wardrobes are located in each bedroom.
Two bathrooms serve each of the bedrooms for convenience and privacy. Each bathroom has a hairdryer.
Security and parking
Riverside Apartment Two is located inside a secure, gated complex and access to the apartment is via entry code.
A double-garage provides ample car parking (two spaces). Parking in front of the garage door is not permitted as it can block other guests and residents access. Boats with a total trailered length of around 6 metres in length will fit in the garage, though please take care when doing so.
One double and one single kayak are available free of charge to our guests. Life jackets are provided - just grab a paddle and head down to the riverfront to launch!
A washing machine is available and complimentary for our guests. Laundry detergent is normally provided, though due to previous guest's use this may not always be the case. There isn't a tumble-dryer, but a clothes line is available downstairs in the garage and a clothes horse (drying rack) is provided for a more portable option.
We provide some necessities that our guests will find handy; sugar, some spices and oils for the kitchen for example, but as Riverside Apartment is a vacation rental and not a hotel we do not provide all amenity items. The following information is provided so you can pack or purchase what we don't provide:
We do provide
Bed linen (except for the portacot), towels and beach towels, tea-towels for the kitchen, toilet paper for the first few days of your stay.
Handsoap, dishwashing and dishwasher detergent.
There is usually some oil, spices, tea and coffee (a french press is available).
We do not provide
Personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, shower gel or soap (though hand soap in all bathrooms is provided). There may be some detergent for the washing machine but this is not guaranteed. Anything that you do need can found in the Countdown supermarket which is only a five minute walk.
Children, disabled guests and pets
Children will love Riverside Apartment - it is the perfect family holiday home - but pets are not allowed, sorry. The apartment is on two floors - the living areas and bedrooms are all on the upper level and are accessed from the downstairs garage and entrance via a set of internal stairs.
A gate is available which may be fitted to the top of the stairs to keep infants safe. A portacot is also provided, but please bring your own linen for this. Please note that children must be supervised if they can access the balcony (through a lockable sliding glass 'ranch slider') as it is possible that they could climb onto furniture, reducing the effective height of the balcony safety glass.
The apartment is most likely to be unsuitable for those in a wheelchair.
