Lake Edge Resort Limited Now Official!
After what has seemed to be a rather protracted exercise Land Information NZ (LINZ) have finally accepted the High Court Order and cancelled the Unit Plan. This means that the Lake Edge Body Corporate and Lake Edge Residents Society Inc have been wound up and the shares in Lake Edge Resort Limited allocated to all owners. Please be assured that your ownership rights to your week/s have been protected by the High Court Order.
The ViewPoint resort management programme has been updated to show all shares held by you, along with the share number/s, under your existing account ID number. We are working on making this information available to you on the owners’ section of the resort website.
Share Certificates will be issued in electronic format on request. More on this later. There remains some legal and administrative work to be completed to ensure all transfers that have been on hold during the conversion process are dealt with in accordance with the High Court Orders. We will confirm all transfers and new shareholding details as soon as possible.
In the meantime, it is business as usual, and you can book or bank your week/s either online or through the resort office.
2023 Annual General Meeting
AGM of Lake Edge Resort Limited was held on Saturday 29 April at the resort. While the first for LERL it was the 35th AGM for Lake Edge Resort given the 34 preceding meetings were under the Body Corporate entity.
The meeting was well supported by shareholders either in attendance or by proxy. Many also opted to postal vote. This ensured that the voting on the resolutions was representative of the ownership base.
A copy of the unconfirmed Minutes of the Meeting are found here.
The nine candidates for the six Board positions all attended the meeting. After all the votes were counted the following were elected;
Rick Martin (2) and John Wilson (4) - Elected to 2026
Marjorie Symonds (4) and Clinton Green (3) - Elected to 2025
Wayne Keats (2) and Donald Boddie (1) - Elected to 2024
(Bracketed number represents number of shares held)
Thanks to Brian Whelan, Caroline Slade and David Curtis for putting their names forward for the 2023 Board Election.

Message from Jen - Resort Manager
It has been a very busy few months right up until the end of April this year with the resort at 100% occupancy. It has been great to see owners and guests of owners making the most of the summer months in Taupo. The pool, spas, bikes, kayaks & paddle boards have all been well utilised over this period. We now have a few gaps opening up in our calendar with weeks available as below:
May 19 - Apartments 1 & 14
June 9 - Apartments 7,10,11 & 12
June 16 - Apartments 3,4,& 5
June 23 - Apartments 6 & 7
July 14 - Apartments 5 & 8
July 21 - Apartments 5,6,7,11 & 12
July 28 - Apartments 6,7,10 & 11
Several Apartments are available through August and the early part of September, please contact the office if you are interested in making a booking.
We are currently having the 2nd bedroom corner windows replaced in Apartments 5 & 7 as well as the large window in the Apartment 1 master bedroom. The aluminum was in a bad state as were the window surrounds which are also being replaced. For this work to be carried out we have had scaffolding erected around these 3 apartments which have been blocked out over the month of May.
We have had to replace 3 Ovens & 3 Hobs this year, mainly due to age most would have been around 15 years old. We have also started to notice that our hot water cylinders are coming to the end of their days and replacements are being made as needed.
Apartment 10, 11 & 12 have been struggling with the lack of wifi signal for quite sometime, we are now in the process of upgrading this section of the resort. We are finding there are a lot of people streaming Netflix to their laptops through our wifi, reducing the overall strength around the resort, especially on wet days. As we now have Smart TV's in each apartment, if you are wanting to watch Netflix, please come to the office and ask for a TV remote, you will be able to go straight into your own Netflix account on the TV using your own password.
Bikes inside Apartments
Please ask at the office for a bike shed key if you have a bike that needs to be stored, we have 4 bike sheds around the resort that are lock-up and very safe. Strictly no bikes in apartments at all, they damage the walls and can leave grease on the floors.
New Bank Account number
We are still having some payments go into our old bank account number. Please remember to change this and pay into our new account number: ASB - 12-3252-0012757-00
Meet & Greet
These have been well attended on most Mondays, owners are happy to bring BYO with the resort providing juice, tea, coffee and nibbles at 4.30pm on a Monday afternoon.
