A Stone's Throw is a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom Kuratau holiday home. This home is ideally situated just 1 minutes walk from the shores of Lake Taupo, and with space to sleep 8 it will be the perfect escape for your next family or group holiday.

Head outside, crank up the BBQ and kick your feet up on the outdoor dining furniture. This home has a large sundeck that will no doubt be a popular hangout to be enjoyed during warmer Summer evenings.

The home itself has a great wood finished interior and with plenty of windows, the home floods with natural light. Best of all, for winter stays the home is equipped with a pot-belly fireplace in the lounge, and with plenty of couches there is a space for everyone to cosy up and enjoy the warmth.

This is an ideal option for couples and families, with well appointed living and an easy position within a 1 minute walk to the lake edge. With Taupo just an hours drive away, and some of North Island's best ski fields just a 45 minute drive from the home.

Whether it's comfort, location or space. A Stone's Throw has it all and more!

Our dog loved having the backyard to play in, the kayaks were brilliant, and it was so close to the water. Great for a relaxing long weekend away and a great little community.

House was great, great location. Unfortunately unclean and rubbish left in bin.

We are delighted that you enjoyed the house Elizabeth! So very sorry that the cleaning needs some extra attention which we are addressing - thank you for taking the time to review your stay!

This house is in a great location. A typical Lockwood that keeps its heat and talks to you at night! Easy living style.

Stayed December 2020

Good clean house for a family or small group. The house is nice and close to the boat ramp and lake. Plenty of room to park our boat in the driveway. They have kayaks in excellent condition to use.
