The Treehouse(Kuratau) -4min walk to beach on flat

 This was a great house. There was plenty of room for everyone and we enjoyed the use of the kayaks. 

Kuratau Holiday Bach-beautiful and private

 Fabulous spot, perfect for a family holiday. Would definitely love to come back. 

Lake front, family Bach.

 We had a wonderful time at the Kramphouse! Fabulous location, kids rode their bikes up and down the reserve, great facilities, beds were comfy, and it was great to just come in and feel relaxed. So its very homely and that's what we like in a holiday house. 

Kuratau Holiday Bach-beautiful and private

 Very clean and comfortable, beautiful setting and handy to the river and lake front. Older beds so just average in terms of size - not that comfortable but woukd not stop me from returning. Owner very kind to leave out two canoes for us to use so thankyou very much.

20 March Cancellation SPECIAL 3-4-2  w SPA, kayaks

 We had everything we could possibly need here and loved the outdoor dining options either side of the house. Kayaks were really good to have as well.
