Peaceful, lakeside, a retro beauty.. welcome to Kuratau Classic! Just a moments walk from the lake is where you'll find this Kuratau holiday home.

Loved and cared for by its owners for 50+ years, every piece of stylish retro furniture and decoration has a story to tell and highlights the character of the home. Enjoy your morning coffee and some fresh air on the decking looking out over the lake. Or snuggle up to a movie and a glass of wine in front of the fireplace. Upstairs in the main house, are the first two bedrooms sleeping 4 guests, the remaining 2 bedrooms are found downstairs for another 5 guests. Also downstairs a second bathroom and kitchenette are provided, making this an ideal setup for the whole family to holiday together comfortably.

Head to the lake just a hop, skip, and a jump from your door and take the Kayak or dingy for a spin. Plus, there are a number of great walking and cycle trails in the area to enjoy. Taupo City or Whakapapa ski field are both just under an hour away, or Turangi is even closer just under half an hour's drive.

Put your feet up and relax, this Kuratau Classic has you covered!

Great traditional family Bach. Comfortable and warm beds. The fire was fantastic and was needed for cooler days beside the lake but the key was the beautiful lake view right outside and the lovely lake front walks.

Stayed February 2022

Beautiful property, loved the deck with views to the lake, great front garden for games, and very well equipped. We will be back!

Hi Richard Thank you for the photos. I notified the owner and the rooms have been fumigated prior to the arrival of the next guests. Unfortunately this issue is not identifiable until it appears. Bed bugs have the reputation of being the worlds best hike hikers. Once again apologies to your kids for the discomfort. Regards Tim Everybody good luck..

We loved our stay at Kuratau Classic. It was amazing being just by the lake, and the house was comfortable and well appointed for our group. The fire kept it lovely and warm, and we had a great time! We'll definitely consider staying again!
