Taupo, North Island, New Zealand
Additional Location Information
Dunalistair House is located within the gated community of The Kinloch Club. At this time there are only two homes on the development, so privacy at Dunalistair House is assured! It is recommended to have a vehicle while staying at Dunalistair House. The village itself of Kinloch is a quaint holiday village surrounded by poplar trees and mature plantings that give it a unique feel to any other part of New Zealand. There are also no overhead powerlines in Kinloch as the original settlers here had sailing boats being driven in and out, so they built the village with underground wiring to avoid any snagging!
The village is located on the shores of Lake Taupo, with a permanent population of 450 people. In the summer months this swells to 2000! The marina in the village of Kinloch gives access to the finest fishing waters of the Western Bays of Lake Taupo. Also, with the recently completed W2K Track and Kawakawa Bay Track, there are now two world class walking and mountain biking tracks. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is also ranked a Top 100 in the world outside the US by Golf Digest Magazine.
Only 15 minutes drive from Dunalistair is Taupo town, offering fine dining, cafes and restaurants, as well as a number of boutique retail outlets. The lake itself is very swimmable in the summer and is popular as a stop-off for a few days being right in the central North Island on the main highway between Auckland and Wellington and Napier.
The air is fresh and clean, being at an altitude of 1400 feet, and the emphasis is on outdoor activities - the walking, kayaking, biking, fishing, golfing and white water rafting are most popular.
It is easy to stay a week in the region and leave plenty to do for a return trip !
