Residents at Summerset by the Lake can take advantage of the great things Taupo has to offer. A short walk down to the lake, world-class fishing spots nearby, and an active community to get involved with, our Taupo village is a great place for retirement living.

The village is not far from Rainbow Point, in a quiet area, just 5 minutes from Taupo’s town centre.

Our living options include villas, apartments, and serviced apartments and we offer a range of aged-care services from in-home support to rest home-level care.

Please contact Cherie, our Sales Manager, on 07 985 5072 for more information.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
