Kuratau Kete is a beautiful bach set beside the la

 Awesome location. 50 metres to the lake. Pet friendly. All amenities catered for. Highly recommended.

 We loved our time at Kuratau Kete. It's very basic and very small, but was perfect for us as it had everything we needed (a place to wash, sleep and cook - with laundry facilities) and was almost right on the lake front, with views of the lake from the deck. The section is huge so we ate outside overnight on the lawn sitting around the picnic table that belongs at the property. The owner was lovely to deal with.

 Place was great - just what I was looking for. The only problem I encountered is I wasn't sure what all the keys were for and it took me a while to find the right ones to unlock the windows. Having the keys labelled would be a big help. Apart from that, all really good. Look forward to staying there again sometime.....soon!

 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.
