Fun old skool bach with lovely views of the lake from the lounge and bedroom. Perfect location for strolling the lake and the Taupo 5k Parkrun! Had all we needed and got to enjoy it with the dogs - thanks again for a great stay!

This is a cute, retro bach. The bed was firm and the shower hot... if a little underpowered. Good basic amenities... beats a motel any day for a welcoming environment.
JoStayed February 2021
Lovely location and wonderful views. Located in nicest part of Taupo. It is a cute very basic retro bach but I thought it is very overpriced for what it is.
KateStayed February 2021
Great lake view and spacious grass area. Clean and tidy with true kiwi bach feel. Walking distance to store, fish n chip shop and the two mile sailing club which I would highly recommend for pizzas and drinks right by the lake. Shower pressure could be better but it’s a bach so overall great house and would definitely stay again.

This bach lives up to expectation. But the views are even better in person just amazing. In hot weather it was nice to be able to sit out front and have a BBQ with the amazing views in the forefront. This bach had everything we needed. The shower did let it down a bit for us there was not a nice even pressure just a trickle. If you can overlook that then this is a well priced bach with the best views in this price range.
Thank you for your very valuable feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the property and the view, we agree, its pretty great! We have passed along your feedback about the shower and the owner has someone coming to look at fixing it. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

A lovely cosy kiwi Bach. Has everything you need and an amazing view. The shower needs an upgrade but otherwise we loved it.

This was a great basic Bach so close to the lakeside trail and cosy/ well-equipped for family get togethers.

JennyStayed January 2019
The J-Bach at Rainbow Point provided the perfect getaway location for us. We loved the original retro character of the bach and location so close to the lake. Great that we could take the family pooch with us well.

TraceyStayed November 2018
A great timeless Bach with awesome NZ Bach character. The bed was very comfortable. Everything you need to have a holiday provided incl plates and cooking accessories. The view is spectacular! A very short walk to the lake makes a very fun Bach to rent. Has a very homey welcoming vibe and although a small house, the yard is plenty big enough to share with family and great for the dog. The only downfall was no laundry but I don't think this is a biggie!! I would definitely stay here again.

Great location, private, lovely view. Authentic old-style NZ bach.
LisaStayed August 2018
If you're wanting a no-fuss, kiwi Bach experience, then The J Bach is the one! We loved the simplicity of this good old kiwi Bach. It had everything we needed and was surprisingly roomy inside. There's heaps of sleeping space for large tribes and plenty of room to pitch tents. But most of all.....the location and view are fantastic! In summertime, I can imagine spending the majority of your time outside enjoying the view of the lake and the proximity of lake. So close! But the best thing about this Bach, is being able to take your pet!! And I must mention that dealing with Susan was ridiculously easy! She was really friendly and just wanted us to have a lovely stay in The J Bach. She definitely went the extra mile for us and we appreciated it! Thank you Susan!

This property was clean and well equipped.The location was quiet and a stone's throw from the lake edge.
