Are you longing to take the family on a simple lake escape, where the boat ramp and swimming beach are just a few minutes away? Welcome to Pukawa Lodge!

Nestled on quiet cul-de-sac only two streets back from the shores of Lake Taupo’s Pukawa Bay, this classic Kiwi bach has everything you need for a classic Kiwi getaway.

Whether you’re headed for a winter ski break or a summer fishing trip, Pukawa Lodge is a cosy place to call your home away from home. Electric heaters keep the living spaces and bedrooms toasty warm, ready for you to curl up on the sofa with a cuppa and a good book.

When the mercury is rising outside, create indoor-outdoor flow to the large deck and let the fresh lake breeze cool things down.

A fuss-free kitchen has everything you need for simple self-catering on your lake escape. Whip up some tasty sandwiches and make the three-minute walk down to the lake for a picnic and afternoon of sun and swimming!

When it’s time to rest your head and recharge for another big day at the lake or on the slopes, two bedrooms on the mezzanine level of this two-storey a-frame home comfortably sleep up to four guests, while the sofa bed in the living room can accommodate another two.

Getaways on this side of Lake Taupo afford holiday-goers with plenty of great options to adventure and explore. Boat owners will be pleased to know there is space to park their vessel here at Pukawa Lodge, in fact you can even drive right round the property - no need for tricky reversing! The boat ramp and safe swimming beach at Pukawa Bay are just 250m away. There are also lovely native bush walks nearby.

Also within easy reach from your home away from home are the Tokaanu Hot Pools (10-minute drive), Turangi with its simple conveniences (13-minute drive), the Whakapapa ski fields (40-minute drive), and Taupo with its great eateries and activities (55-minute drive).

For a place for great holiday memories to be made, Pukawa Lodge awaits!

Adults should closely supervise young children to ensure that they do not climb the horizontal wooden slats in the deck barrier.

As the deck barrier is below 1 metre high, all guests should take care in this area due to the risk of falls.

All guests should take care when using the internal stairs as they are steep and do not have a handrail.

Honestly we had booked for two nights as had to due to Taupo being booked out for long weekend. Wish we could’ve left as soon as we got there really.
