Set amidst serene native bush and only 100m from the lake, The Summerhouse is a truly special Kurutau holiday home.

Featuring slanted high ceilings and quirky art, The Summerhouse is spread over two levels, with sunny open plan living downstairs and easy indoor/outdoor flow onto the deck.

Step out onto the deck for a morning coffee and marvel at the feeling of being almost in the native bush with the birdlife!

Relax in the sun with the BBQ on hand for laid-back Kiwi dinners! The main house has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs with a single divan bed available in the living area on the ground floor. The studio is connected to the house and is accessible through the laundry. With 2 single beds in the bedroom; a king and single bed in the living area; as well as a kitchenette and bathroom; this is a perfect semi-separate area for larger groups.

Kick into holiday mode and put your feet up at this relaxing Kuratau retreat. Choose to stay at home and chill out on the sun-drenched deck with a book, or wander to the lake for a day of outdoor activities. The Summerhouse welcomes you for a low key lake getaway!
