One of the original homes built in Kinloch, this family holiday home is located in the heart of Kinloch, overlooking the Kinloch Marina (50 metres away) and entrance. A deck opening off the lounge offers stunning views of the surrounding locality, the marina, and with views of Lake Taupo across Whangamata Bay – especially in the evenings with the spectacular sunsets. A BBQ and seating on this area provides a great area for socialising.

Amenities within two hundred metres of this property include the foreshore of Lake Taupo with good swimming and picnic facilities, the Kinloch Marina and boat ramp (almost adjoining), general store, a restaurant, two public tennis courts, the starting point of the W2K walk, a children’s playground, ducks and swans for children to feed and the iconic Kinloch pedestrian bridge. Another café, restaurant, 10 hole public golf course, the Kinloch International Golf Course, and more tennis courts are within 500 metres. Kinloch has numerous walkways, reserves and tracks ideal for family walks and bike rides (bring your bikes). Kinloch is handy to the great trout fishing area of the Western Bays. Taupo township with further tourist attractions is only 20kms away (15 minutes drive), and the ski fields are a one and half hour drive.

This stucco home has 3 double bedrooms in the main part of the house, with facilities to sleep another 2 people in the attached self contained games room/flat. There are two bathrooms, and 2 separate toilets. While iconic features of a Kiwi bach are present, this is a comfortable holiday home with a superb location and unsurpassed views of the marina and lake. The section has plenty of off street parking for cars and boats, and has an outdoor fish bench (for those in luck!).

Special conditions: Smoking outside only. A cleaner is available at an extra cost if requested. The BBQ is to be left clean. If a breakage should occur please replace it, or notify the owner. No pets. We ask that you respect our special family home, and ask that you leave it as you find it. We know that you will enjoy your stay!

    the location was simply fantastic, waking up to the mariner really was so relaxing. ease of launching the boat meant just popping back in for a bite of lunch or a quick warm up. house was clean and comfy, also nice and warm. just a 2 minute walk to the shop, would return to this wonderful bach in a heart beat.
