Alan Pye Cottage

4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 3.5 bathrooms
Wake up to the soothing sound of the Waikato River flowing downstream to Huka Falls at this unique cottage in Taupo. Step outside for a closer look; maybe pour yourself a coffee to enjoy down by the river’s edge. When the flowing waters have inspired you, dive into the infinity pool, or relax in the hot tub. Later, grab your camera and walk 10-minutes to snap a few vacation photos at Huka Falls.
Wander the lush gardens, lawns, and riverside to find the perfect spot to sit and read on a lazy afternoon at the Alan Pye Cottage. Inside, an eclectic mix of furnishings, Maori antiquities, and bold paintings shows off the cottage’s commitment to fine detail. Alan Pye Cottage takes full advantage of its prime location with an open-air layout, featuring floor-to-ceiling doorways on both the river and garden sides of the living room. The enclosed courtyard is the perfect gathering place for late-nights with old friends. Sip local wine while you chat and relax in the hot tub or in the lounge areas that surround this cottage getaway.
Seven minutes beyond Huka Lodge gates, you’ll find the township of Taupo’s boutique shops and quaint family-run restaurants. Drive a little further, and you’ll hit the larger city of Rotorua, where nightlife and shopping await. If you’d prefer, stay on-site and explore the grounds to find a full array of amenities
