Excellent house, easy access and great views. Comfortable and well set out in a rain forest full of birds.

Fabulous house, we really enjoyed our stay. beautiful, peaceful setting amongst the trees, and the kids had a great time playing hide and seek among the many tracks around the property. It was a big bonus to be allowed to bring our dog along with us! The house is well appointed with everything we needed, and the kids loved taking a night each sleeping in "the hole in the wall" bed. We love a house with quirks, and this one is great.

We had a great time at the bach, we loved going on the bush walks (especially to the nearby vineyard for pinot gris and pizza) and to the beach. Very quiet neighbourhood which was perfect for us. As it's in the bush there were a few spiders, so make sure to conquer any fears before getting there!

Such a private home, we loved being up in the trees. It was quiet, warm and relaxing. The bird life was a pleasure to watch so close. Good location near the walking track and what a bonus to be able to bring our wee dog. Would definitely stay again!

We loved our stay here, it was very relaxing and homely. Pukawa Bay itself was so nice and quiet, we enjoyed all the walks and the close proximity to Kuratau where we went often for a game of tennis.

Stayed September 2019

Fantastic holiday home amongst the bush overlooking Lake Taupo. Stunning sunrises, and the bird life was amazing. The kids loved the unique bunk beds. The house was nice and cozy, and we would love to return to utilise the great outdoor decks in the warmer months.

Stayed June 2019

A great house with beautiful views of the lake and Bush all around. We loved the games, the dishwasher and comfy beds too.

Stayed February 2019

We had the time of our lives at this house - most of our time was spent on the terrace surrounded by native bush and birds. The bird life is amazing - to wake up to the song of bellbirds and the wingbeats of Kereru was beautiful. We had everything we needed, and the walk to the lake was steep but rewarding. The bushwalk on the hill above the house was also amazing. An unforgettable experience.
