“Lovely Easter weekend thank you!”
So good to get lots of lake time even if the trout weren’t biting! Toasty warm in the mornings with the fire.

“Cute little bach, fab location.”- Elizabeth, February 2023
“Our family absolutely loved our stay at this classic old-style kiwi bach.”
Wonderful views to Lake Taupo. Loads of comfy sofas - enough for everyone! And a good kitchen set-up as well. Once we figured out the fire and got it going it was nice and cosy upstairs, though very chilly in the bedrooms so if you are coming in winter make sure you bring warm clothes. With no wi-fi it was a perfect get away with our teens, and we spent most days just lounging around playing board games and reading books. Easy drive to hot pools and mini golf in Turangi as well. We hope to stay again - keen to check it out in the warmer months.- Joanne, July 2022

“Fantastic location, very peaceful.”
Property is fully decked out with everything you need. Property is a little tired but a great example of your classic kiwi batch! Awesome place to chill out for a weekend.- Sara, June 2022
“Great location for the lake”- Elizabeth, December 2020
“We had such a fabulous time.”
We are also really grateful that we were able to bring our two little girls (1 & 3) when our babysitter fell ill. Although there were warnings about the balcony not being a suitable barrier for little ones, we were able to manage that. There is a trap door in the kitchen that were we concerned our little ones might discover but we were able to put an obstacle over it. This is such an amazing location. It's a real oldschool family bach, and obviously much loved by the owners. We felt privileged to be able to stay there. We want to book again. We hope we don't miss out. Thank you so much, Leanne, Richard, Corbin, Kora, and Marlee. P.S. Corbin, who is 10, wants to live there now. We are from Palmerston North and he says he didn't even miss his playhut at home.- Leanne, October 2020

Enjoying a great position at the lake, Classic Lakeside is a 3 bedroom Kuratau bach. This traditional kiwi bach is just the ticket for an awesome bach getaway! This Kuratau bach includes simple and cosy open plan living, with fantastic views from both indoors and out - stay toasty by the fire and look out to the lakeside scenery, or set yourself up on the deck for relaxed BBQs and tranquil lake and reserve views! Bedroom 1 at this Kuratau accommodation is fitted with a double bed, while bedrooms 2 and 3 each have 2 single beds. This is a great wee base for couples and families, with all the basics for an easy break away.

For day trips, you are less than an hour from Taupo town centre, and just over an hour from Ohakune. Your Classic Lakeside getaway awaits!
The upstairs deck balustrade is lower than 1 metre high, all guests should take care in this area due to the risk of falls
Due to the unfenced access to the lake, guests should closely supervise young children when outside to ensure they are safe around water

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.
