Business for Sale Description

Lodge Business for Sale Taupo

The lodge was built in 2001 after the owners returned to New Zealand from Texas which is Becky’s home. The buildings and grounds are purpose built for hosting guests.

The Lodge is an ideal home and income, currently run as a luxury B&B boutique lodge. It offers a great investment as it is in a prime location with breath-taking views that cannot be built out.

The owners have the most interesting combination of guests from all over the world staying at the Lodge  and nightly cocktails & canapes offers them a wonderful opportunity to build many global friendships.

The business is busy from October through to April with block-out days to allow for breaks as necessary. The “Help Exchange” program where young helpers from all over the world stay at the Lodge for a period of time and work 4-5 hours per day in return for accommodation and food is ideal for the owners in their management of the property.

The Cottage:

A 51sq mtr cottage was purpose built with romantic travellers in mind. Heavily insulated and with its own solar hot water heating. Large open plan bedroom/lounge/kitchenette with huge double glazed picture window. Gas fire; a/c; Denon sound system; LED TV, kitchenette with microwave and full sized fridge; double spa bath, double shower with rain showers, double vanity, under floor heating in bathroom. Extremely energy efficient and sound proof building.

The Cottage has its own driveway access with small patio and BBQ area and there is the ability to turn the rooftop into a patio for cottage guest use.


* All buildings repainted in 2012.
* Substantial grounds with native plantings.
* Large vegetable garden.

The lodge offers a huge degree of flexibility in its operations. The new buyer may continue running it as a luxury B&B with three guest suites. The current owners have determined that Income potential can be up to $160K per year (average $400 per night per room @ 400 nights per year )

An option is to live in the upstairs area and convert the downstairs into a self-contained apartment or to live in the upstairs area, continue to use the downstairs facilities for B&B purposes and have parents or grandparents in the cottage. There is ample space out back to build another luxury cottage on the grounds.

The current owners would also be prepared to discuss continued involvement as operators or caretakers should the new owners have a need to be away from the property for extended time periods.
