Family owned, Takapoto Estate sits on three kilometres of picturesque waterfront on Lake Karapiro.

What began as a dream to reconnect with family and heritage, has transformed into an impassioned journey to create a breath-taking natural sanctuary and a proud family legacy. The restoration of the land is the foundation of the project and is key to its success.
