As we are based in New Zealand, and from New Zealand ourselves, we have great local knowledge, tips and tricks that we are happy to pass on to help you gain the most out of your trip. At CRNZ, we are available to be contacted via phone, email and Facebook and will be back in touch regarding your enquiry within 24 hours of receiving it. We take pride in being able to answer your calls and emails and assisting you personally when it comes to finding your perfect accommodation. Our team have travelled the country searching, sourcing and visiting great properties that we have available on our website.
We, Peter and Lorraine, welcome you to Bellrock Lodge, our home and hopefully your home away from home. We aim to create an atmosphere where you can relax and unwind in 5-star luxury.
We were blessed to find this amazing property overlooking the village of Russell and the beautiful bay. This property was bought in 1971, when the first owners could pick and choose in the then relatively undeveloped Russell, and they certainly picked one of the best views and secluded properties. We bought the property in 2008, demolished (except for our section of the house) the original building and purpose built Bellrock Lodge. You will get the feel of South Africa (where we were born and raised) in our Black and Stinkwood furniture, our paintings reflect the different South African cultures, fauna/flora, landscapes and birds, we have incorporated New Zealand woods in our floors, doors and staircase. Other objects d'art, reflect our travels, the brass bell from Nepal at the front door (weighing 8kg – how I used to get away with that at the airports I have no idea) to the papyrus paintings from Egypt, wooden hand-carved mirror frames from Zanzibar and many other.
We share our home with Tigger and Tomcat, who came over with us from South Africa, and Shaka, a beautiful black labrador, born and bred in New Zealand.
You could travel the world and it would be hard to match a holiday location such as that offered at Waimahana, enjoying spectacular lake views, thermally heated swimming pool and spa that takes you right to the lake edge and sandy beach, Lake Taupo accommodation at its finest.
