Tucked away just 4-minutes from the lakefront - welcome to The Rivers!

Exceptionally designed in a modern contemporary fashion, with a high-ceiling living area complimented with a seamless indoor/outdoor flow that opens out onto the deck area with expansive views of the local nature.

Spend your days sitting out by the fireplace cozied up with a glass of wine in hand, embracing the peaceful atmosphere or head upstairs and walk along the bridge over the mezzanine to find yourself overlooking panoramic views of the stunning the river valley.

From day time adventures down by the lake, just a 3-minutes drive away or wine tasting the finest selection of wines on offer at the Omori Estate 2-minutes down the road, or stop by the Floating Rock Cafe just a 2-min walk away and explore their renown pizza menu. Everything you need for a relaxing getaway!

Stayed June 2022

We came across a mouse on our first night at the bach that went missing and we didn't see again. The hot water system can be tricky - we were a larger group so had to take very short showers in order for the hot water to last otherwise would have to wait some time for it to reheat. The top room may also need a heater as it can get very cold in the winter mornings. The facilities were awesome - built in speakers, the crockery, a selection of spices even! We were super impressed with this. The fireplace outside and hot tub was so relaxing and soothing! Overall, a really nice place to book!

Wonderful house! Absolutely gorgeous, sunny place to stay in the beautiful Kuratau. Highly recommended

Stayed March 2022

Stunning place and perfect for a quiet break away. However, the hot tub is very outdated and doesn’t have a thermostat on it to adjust the temp and it was cold and dirty on arrival with no clear instructions on how to heat it etc. Plenty of space and showers were all great! A little bit away from Taupo itself but Turangi not too far when you need supplies. All round great property, and if the owners or carers of the property upgrade the hot tub and inspect the property between stays thoroughly it would have been 10/10.

Absolutely beautiful, 100% would go again. A perfect place to stay for a relaxing break. However thanks to the spa, BBQ, table tennis, close proximity to floating rocks restaurant and vineyard and walking tracks, still enough to do at a leisurely pace. We stayed in Summer but would also return in skiing season, great proximity to Ruapehu.

A very magic spot for this barn home and loved building it over many months. The section was covered in gorse and bracken and very proud to have started this stunning property and home . Loved being in it again and sad we sold it .

Stayed April 2021

A wonderful outlook/view, a beautiful, light filled living area and lots of parking space for vehicles and boats. We would highly recommend this property.

Stayed February 2021

We had an amazing mini holiday staying at this beautiful property. We stayed here with another family and found it to be family friendly. There was ample parking for our cars and jetski trailers. The view at the back of the property is beautiful. We had a great time and would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed September 2020

The Rivers is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the company of others. The views were amazing and being greeted every morning by native birds were just amazing. All in all the best place to wind down after a busy term of work. ❤️

The house is beautiful! The view is perfect. Perfect break away. Owners could be better with communication and be mindful spa will likely not be ready upon arrival.

Architecturally very interesting place to stay lots of cool art to enjoy and winter comforts of spa, gas fire were excellent. Hosts communicated well and were very accommodating. Family friendly sleep-orientation wise rather than all adults but otherwise excellent!
