Kiwi Cutie is a 3 bedroom Kuratau bach. This classic kiwi bach has loads of character, with a sunny and peaceful set up that is just the ticket for a family stay at the lake!

This Kuratau bach includes simple open plan living that flows onto the spacious deck - there is ample room to relax in the sun or fire up the BBQ in true kiwi style. The generous, flat section is ideal for family games in the sun!

Bedroom 1 at this Kuratau accommodation opens onto the deck and is fitted with a queen bed. Bedroom 2 includes a single bunk set plus a double bunk with a single on top, while bedroom 3 has 2 single bunk sets. This is a great option for up to 8 guests!

When you are not unwinding and taking in the laid back holiday vibe, head to the lake just a hop, skip, and a jump from your door. Plus, there are a number of great walking and cycle trails in the area to enjoy. Head into Taupo City or Whakapapa ski field, both just under an hour away. Turangi is even closer, just under half an hour's drive...

Your refreshing lake escape awaits, welcome to Kiwi Cutie!

Great little place to stay

Good location but not clean on arrival. New BBQ and clothes line works but is in need of some maintenance!

This is a real Kiwi cutie. The simple bach, home away from home. Good location for the lake holiday.

Stayed January 2020

The property was ok. It is very tired and wasn't very clean. A deep clean and a bit of maintenance is needed. The BBQ is so old it barely works, not well enough to cook anything on. The washing line is a rope under the house, that gets no sun, so not sufficient to dry washing. No towel rails in the bathroom, so had to hang them in the living area on a clothes horse. However, we loved sitting on the deck in the evenings, watching and listening to the birds, and the oil heater in the lounge was enough to keep the place warm at night (beginning of January). Would consider staying again if a proper washing line was installed and a working BBQ provided.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review. At Bachcare we pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean and we're sorry that your experience did not meet our usual high standards on this occasion. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the great deck and are pleased to let you know that the owner has replaced the BBQ and added a new clothes line since your stay.

Great venue. Kids could run to the beach with ease. Cosy home. Warm. Just what we needed.

Stayed December 2018

Cute Bach, but a little cramped for 8 people. When the sun came out though, it was lovely sitting on the big deck watching the abundant native bird life! Easy stroll to the lake and boat ramp. Had a lovely , relaxed time.
