This Kuratau holiday home sits above the pristine southwestern shores of Lake Taupo. Unwind indoors by the fire and admire the scenery, or dine alfresco on the deck with spectacular views. The salt water spa is a romantic setting for the ultimate relaxing evening!

This is a really charming Kiwi bach, brought into the 21st century without losing all its character. Very well equipped with comfortable beds. The spa is a great addition and the setting is beautiful.

A lovely well kept property with amazing view. Beds were comfy, spa so amazing looking out at the lake, and amenities excellent. Kuratau beach is lovely, clean and safe for all ages to swim at. Would stay again.

Enjoyable stay. Beautiful cottage. Washing machine/dryer not very user friendly. Also 1 bath towel each for 3 night stay with a spa pool not enough

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Waipapa Cottage Paul. We'll ask the holiday manager to pop some instructions for using the washing machine and dryer in the house. 1x towel is provided per person with paid linen, however guests are welcome to order additional linen or bring their own towels for their stay.

Waipapa Cottage is a beautifully presented, comfortable and cosy property to stay in with fabulous views of the lake.

Julie
Stayed February 2019

A stunning property with lots of thoughtful extras, the view of the lake is magical and the cottage is well presented, thank you to the owners for sharing this treasure. The only disappointing part was the mattress in the queen room sagged in the middle which meant it was difficult to get a good night’s sleep. The late arrival of the neighbours friday night and the noise they made, made it difficult to get any sleep.

Bachcare replied

We agree Waipapa Cottage is a beautiful property Julie! Thanks for your feedback about the mattress, we'll pass this on to the owners.
