IronMan Taupo 2022 accommodation available! It's unfortunate that our guest that was booked for this iconic event is unable to make it (all the best for next year Jasmine!) as her group was coming from Australia.... but that is good news for kiwis still looking for the perfect #ironmantaupo accommodation.

Riverside Apartment sleeps up to six, has awesome secure double-car parking for your support crew vehicle and bikes... and the best part is that it's an easy walk to the start/finish line. So close that one of our previous guests was woken by the starting gun! Ooops, don't do that.

Relax, or do a few laps of the onsite pool during your taper/training, or swim in the river if you prefer the brilliantly clear water that flows right in front of the apartment.

This accommodation slot will fill up quickly, minimum stay requirements apply so please get in touch if you would like to book Riverside Apartment for Taupo Ironman 2022.

As the hard border between the Waikato and Auckland is soon to be removed we welcome our Auckland guests back to Taupo. With the summer holidays and Christmas break now on our minds, what better way to kick 2021 into touch than a holiday at Riverside Apartment on the banks of the beautiful Waikato River.

As always, the kayaks are available free of charge for our guests, the apartment is right on the river front for easy launching and swimming - or the pool is heated and open if you prefer to relax there.

After a days activity, shopping, eating out or exploring the North Island's Adventure Capital, kick back on the balcony, watch the river go by or connect with friends with the free and fibre-fast wifi.

Check out our website for availability and prices. We can't wait to see you back at Riverside Apartment.

We're half way through week one of the school holidays... will you survive another one at home with the kids or would you prefer to wake up to the stunning blue water-views of the Waikato River, in our beautiful Taupo apartment?

With Covid locking down Auckland and parts of the Waikato we've had openings for the apartment, so why not pack the car and kids and head to the adventure capital of the North Island for a few days? And remember, if you are unable to travel due to a Covid lock-down we refund 100% of your money paid.

The swimming pool is heated and open, the kayaks are free for our guests to use and if you really need to work a bit from home or keep everyone connected the wifi is free and fast.

Make a booking request, or just give Greg a call on 021 1708822 to check availability.

We do ask for a five-night minimum stay, but for athletes in their taper it is ideal for those last, lighter training runs, bike rides and swims in the lake and close to the course. Secure, double-car garaging for the support vehicle and bikes, onsite swimming pool and the location is just a few minutes walk from the start line!

Huka Falls, Taupo, New Zealand.

The spectacular Huka Falls (meaning "foam" in māori) is New Zealand's most photographed tourist attraction - and it's easy to see why. More than 200,000 litres of water every second is ejected through a 15m restriction in the volcanic rock of the Waikato River. The cystal-clear ice-melt that begins on the central plateau, flows into the Tongariro River and Lake Taupo is then forced through this cataract waterfall over a drop of 11m. Several viewing platforms close to the main road make this an easily viewed and memorable sight. A must see when visiting Taupo, and only a few minutes by car from Riverside Apartment www.taupoaccommodation.co


While we are sad to hear of Auckland's extension of Level 3, we are supportive of the idea that ultimately it will help to keep us all safer.

It has freed-up some extra vacancy at Riverside Apartment due to a few of our Auckland-based guests being unable to travel over the next twelve days. If you were thinking of a weekend or midweek getaway why not check availability and get in touch with us to make an inquiry.


We are still offering our 10% off mid-week rates (Mon-Thu nights inclusive) until 23 September - and we will refund in full if a Covid-19 related travel restriction prevents you from making it to Taupo.

Both apartments are fully self-contained so you can social-distance to your heart's content and enjoy the comfort that Riverside Apartments can offer after a day of exploring the beautiful Taupo region. Fast and free wifi, flat screen TVs, comfy living areas with lots of space.

If you have any questions please get in touch via FB or our website https://www.taupoaccommodation.co/contact-taupo-accommodation.php
