This place is cute, characterful, and homely. Has everything you need. Very quiet area with lots of native birds and an incredible lake view around the corner. It's exceptionally clean. Couldn't find any way of hanging clothes up though.

A lovely Bach to stay in. Close to the water, easy to access, very comfortable & very clean & tidy, loved our time there & would highly recommend it.

Kuratau Bach is delightful - an older style Bach but with all the comforts. Just as a Bach should be! The location is perfect, just a 2 minute walk to the lake and the river, very convenient for using kayaks. It is a peaceful corner of Kuratau and the bird life is wonderful.

Cant fault this little bach, as a family we have stayed almost 10x at this bach, they have added ac and just came in handy with a little one joining us, location and size is great

Truly wonderful bach, can see that it has been well cared for and very well loved. A fantastic "Kiwi Family" bach.

The Bach is very beachy but perfect for our family, loved the location and had everything we needed. Could do with better knives and Omori Store was out of wood so best not to rely on that but there were heaters.

Bachcare replied

Hi Kathryn, thank you so much for your feedback and we're glad that you loved the location - we do too! Thank you for the heads up about the knives, we've let the owner know! Glad to hear the heaters kept you toasty!
