A man has been charged with murder after a woman was found dead at a house north of Taupo.

The body of Queenie Selina Thompson, 41, was discovered at an address in Ongaroto, near Mangakino, on Wednesday morning.

A 44-year-old man has been charged with her murder and appeared in Rotorua District Court on Friday.

"Our thoughts are with Queenie's family following her tragic death and I can reassure the community that we are rigorously investigating the circumstances of her death," said Detective Senior Sergeant Matt Cranshaw.

The accused was remanded in custody and will appear in the High Court in Rotorua in May.
