Kuratau Kete is a beautiful bach set beside the la

 Great to be able to include our dog. Ticked all the boxes for a short stay and affordable accommodation

 Great little bach with a lovely outlook just one minute walk from the water. We took a portable bbq and gazebo to make use of the huge section. Loved our stay.

 The kete was in the perfect position for the lake. It was great for the break we wanted, easy to clean on departure. Small but functional, well equipped for the two of us. 

Ideal short-term base for Taupo Summer Events

 Emer was super friendly and picked us up from the bus station which was a very thoughtful thing to do. The room is clean and everything is provided for you to make things comfortable, including delicious baked goods. Shop is right down the street to pick up small things Thanks again Emer. Defiantly recommend

 Fantastic location! Ideal for two people. There is a dog exercise area on the shore front and walks along the reserves following the lake either way.
