Peacefully tucked away amongst the trees, fabulous views out over the glistening water and two garden paths down to the river and lake's edge. This central plateau holiday home is a hidden treasure that's a must-see - Welcome to Puketapu!

Thoughtfully decorated and furnished with an eye for comfort, you can't help but feel welcomed and relaxed from the minute you arrive.

Spread across two levels, Puketapu offers ample space for everyone to come together in the upper open plan living, dining and kitchen space. Then at the end of the day when its time to wind-down, there is plenty of space for everyone to find a comfy place to rest their head.

The private, gated access to either the Kuratau River or the lake means you're perfectly set up for the best fly fishing spots - so be sure to pack the fishing rods. Spend your summer days wandering through the garden down to the water and exploring the nearby lakeside walking tracks.

When you need to get away, have a worry-free break and make this holiday one to remember - Puketapu ticks all the boxes!

Stayed July 2021

What a beauty! Was here for a small family get away to enjoy some snow and I must this house was absolutely perfect in all ways. The view each morning was spectacular even though the weather wasn’t the best with access to the lakeside/ beach area. The house was well equipped and very very comfortable.

Great location, peaceful and well equipped property

Stayed August 2020

This cozy and gorgeous home was just perfect. We had a family trip with 5adults, 1 child and 1 baby. It has a beautiful view, so wonderfully close to the water and everything you needed was there. Woke up listening to Tui’s in the trees. Lots of games for adults and kids, lots of seating, plenty of bathrooms and did I mention the view? The owners were easy to contact and it was nice and clean when we arrived. Highly recommended!

Wonderful house with plenty of room for 2-3 families. Amazing location right beside the lake and river, surrounded by native bush. So much native wildlife!
