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.

The village centre is the heart of Summerset by the Lake. It is home to a range of wonderful facilities including the Divine Café, library, resident lounges and social spaces, hair salon, pool table, and indoor pool.

Our village offers a range of villas and apartments for independent living.

One of the benefits of living in a Summerset village is knowing that should your needs change, a range of care options are available. Our modern care centre offers rest home and hospital-level care within the village.

For singles and couples who wish to remain independent, we also offer support and care up to rest home level in our spacious serviced apartments.

To find out more, please call us on 0800 334 404 or request our free information pack by clicking on the button at the top of the screen.

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.
