The property

Just moments from the shores of Lake Taupo, experience Kuratau at this funky family pad. Welcome to your Relaxing Retro Retreat! A perfect combination of '70s charm and modern convenience, step inside to be greeted by patterned wallpaper and cosy furnishings. The open-plan living space is drenched in sun, while the wood-burning fireplace will provide year-round warmth. Gather and connect around the leather couches and dining table, while the space flows through to your vibrant kitchen. A functional layout for families and groups, this retro retreat sleeps up to eleven guests. Four generous bedrooms are split across two levels, while each floor is complemented by a full bathroom. An additional downstairs living space means there’s ample space to relax and unwind. Indoor-outdoor flow expands your living onto the expansive upper-level deck, which enjoys outdoor seating and a BBQ. This picturesque spot is surrounded by trees, rolling hills and a glimpse of Lake Taupo! Additional amenities at this Kuratau holiday home include WiFi, two TVs, heat pumps, laundry facilities and even a kayak. Meanwhile, you’re situated on a fully-fenced section with off-street parking. Nestled in the lakeside village of Kuratau, you’re just a three-minute stroll to the local playground and tennis court, while the boat ramp is just a one-minute drive. This Central North Island location means you’re surrounded by a hive of activity to suit every taste. Explore the renowned Tongariro National Park, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and home to majestic ski fields. Dive into the crystal-clear waters of Lake Taupo, renowned for its inviting swimming spots, or embark on exhilarating bike trails and picturesque bushwalks. From serene lakeside moments to adrenaline-fueled escapades, Relaxing Retro Retreat is not to be missed!

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

Please note that there are external surveillance cameras that will be operating for added security during your stay.

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 are encouraged to use the handrail when using the internal stairs as they are quite steep.

There is a kayak available to use but guests must bring their own life-jackets to gain access to these.

About the location

On the opposite side of the lake to Taupo, Kuratau is a small peaceful town with plenty of outdoor activities on offer. Spend the day out on the water with kayaks, boats and water skis, or go fly fishing for rainbow trout in the Tongariro River. Being further away from the bustle of Taupo, it's also an ideal location for a relaxing holiday to get away from it all. All of our Kuratau holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
