Overview

Photos and Description of this Kuratau holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Come on a journey to visit our patch of paradise! The bach is 9.5 km from the SH32 turnoff, signposted Whareroa Village. Hear the birdsong early morning and enjoy the view of pristine lake and sky with the lights of Taupo and Turangi at night. The house is on an unfenced gentle-sloping section. Relax in the well heated house or explore the area. Walk five minutes down to the beach for swimming, launching your boat at the ramp, exploring the nature reserve, or fly-fishing at the mouth of the Whareroa Stream. Fishing licence and boat ramp fees may be paid to Steve Sanderson at 21 Hinekapi Terrace.

The Whakapapa Skifield is 40 minutes drive south from Whareroa. There's a general store 19.8 km south at Omori with the Tokaanu Thermal Baths, hotel and Oasis Cafe 9 km further on. For trampers and bush-walkers, explore at Pukawa or Omori, or drive 15 minutes north up the Western Bay Road (SH32) to the Waihaha Track, or south through Tokaanu and up the hill on SH47 to Lake Rotopounamu. The Tongariro National Trout Centre is a short distance south from Turangi on SH1.

The bach has open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, a double room with queen-size bed and a second bedroom with two single beds, all with a view of the lake. There's a double sofa-bed in the lounge and a combined laundry, shower and toilet.

The house has a stove, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, radio, TV with Freeview, DVD, and a BBQ on the deck.

We had a great time in this clean, comfy (esp the beds), quiet homely bach, didn't really want to leave. Great surroundings with beautiful views and easy access to the lake and walks. Will definately consider for future trips if we go that way again.

one of the best bach we ever been too.

  • 5 of 5

one of the best bach we ever been too. It's warm and Cousy and the view of the lake in the morning is to die for. I recommend this to anyone who is visiting the lake or thinking of going to the mountains. Bob's bach is the place to stay. I myself will seek this out if i am ever at the area.
