A classic design with a modern twist. Dazzling away under the Kuratau sun, 2-minutes out from Kuratau township and the stunning lakefront - welcome to the Red Barn!

Sit back and relax by the outdoor dining table, with the fireplace beside you keeping you toasty and accompanied by a glass of red wine, take in the stunning view of the lake right from your backyard. With the added benefits of a bbq to cook up a classic kiwi home-cooked meal, and surrounded by nature, you'll love every minute here!

Enjoy a morning coffee before heading out down to the lakefront for a picnic to enjoy the day. Omori Estate and Kuratau River Wines are both within a 2-minute drive for when you want head up and enjoy some fine local wine and food!

Stayed April 2021

Great little place to stay, quiet and beautiful setting. Great views & love the sun streaming in in the morning.

Stayed March 2021

Accommodation involved 4 x beds, 3 on the upstairs mezzanine which is an open area overlooking the downstairs living area and 1 x private room. Well equipped kitchen. Light and airy living area. Quiet, rural setting. Much larger house close next door in shared parking area. If this is being rented it is not very private for enjoying the outside area and with multiple vehicles, trailers and families next door we kept curtains drawn to maintain our privacy as neighbouring guests used walkway next to our outdoor area frequently during our stay. We had to request soap for showering and handwashing (handwash on sink barely adequate volume), as it was not stated in listing or booking information that guests had to bring their own. Property Manager was unavailable for 3 hours of texting and calls regarding no soap, and limited toilet paper, which caused unnecessary stress and not a situation we've encountered as paying guests in numerous bach and airbnb bookings around NZ. Once relayed, situation was eventually rectified.

Thank you for your review Cass. Although the second building is shown in the photos we have now added a note to the listing making it clear for future guests. Our local manager was new to the role during your stay and we have since provided further training. We hope you enjoyed your time in Kuratau.

We had such a great stay, its very relaxed and sitting outside looking at the lake is very calming (after a busy day with the kids). We loved it!!! Thank you for everything.
