Visit Fairbairn House, Taupo, New Zealand

We would like to share our wonderful new country home with you.


Fairbairn House sits high above Lake Taupo in the private Grandview Estate at Acacia Bay, Taupo. At 642 metres (2,106 feet) above sea level, the unique elevated position commands extensive and rare views of the surrounding countryside, the great lake and mountains.

The East Wing stylish 1 bedroom apartment with lounge/kitchenette is a tranquil place for a complete break, a romantic weekend, the base for an outdoor adventure stay, or to take in Taupo’s amazing natural geothermal environment.

The West Wing offers a large spacious living area with two lounge areas, a master bedroom plus a second loft bedroom, designer kitchen and decks/patios flowing out to the lawn and gardens.

And for a larger group or family the whole property - both East and West Wings - is perfect for a fabulous holiday in Taupo. With so many activities close by, Gold Award winning Fairbairn House is a welcome place high above the lake to then come home to.

Glorious sunrises, sunsets and the twinkling lights of Taupo are yours to enjoy. From this vantage point the night sky and Milky Way are a breathtaking experience.

The Lakeview House is the sister property to Fairbairn House, just a few hundred metres apart on Highland Drive. The landscaped terraced gardens capture huge views out across Great Lake Taupo and the night lights of Taupo township. This is a wonderful home for an extra special holiday which you will always remember.  A two bedroom self-contained luxury apartment is available, on request there are other options for larger groups up to 5 bedrooms. 

Come and enjoy these luxurious locations at Lake Taupo.
