Tara Lodge is a piece of paradise tucked right on top of the hills behind Mangawhai, just 5 minutes to the Village.
It’s a peaceful garden in rolling lawns, a place of ancient trees, birdsong and expansive gardens.
Tara Lodge’s owners, Liz and Les Holsted, have given the property a big heart and one of the warmest welcomes awaits you. Vintage orchards and vegetable gardens keep the house supplied with produce most of the year, and Les and Liz love to treat their guests to wonderful meals using this produce and that from the surrounding farms and vineyards.
"Wonderful hospitable hosts – so easy to fit in with. The Lodge is one of the most beautiful places. Thanks for a most enjoyable stay."
Chris and Brent, Taupo
