One of the original homes built in Kinloch, this family holiday home is located in the heart of Kinloch, overlooking the Kinloch Marina 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 cafe, 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. The Bach has gas heated water. While iconic features of a Kiwi bach still remain, the original 1960's kitchen has just been replaced with a modern open plan kitchen / dining / lounge area. 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!).

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.

  • Lovely location and superb view from the bach

    Lovely location and superb view from the bach. Pretty easy drive from Taupo. What you read is what you get. We only booked this place two days before our stay after a last minute decision to stop over at Lake Taupo on a trip back from Palmerston North to Hamilton. The owner was out of country but responded very promptly to confirm we understood the terms (i.e. bring your own bedsheets etc.) before accepting our request. Overall, our family enjoyed our stay. Here's a quick summary. What worked well -beautiful view/location (as advertised) -nice trail nearby for those looking for a small hike -a small beach within walking distance -a corner store and café (if you don't wish to cook) -kitchen exceeded expectations and was well stocked with brand new appliances -three of the rooms had very comfortable beds with electric blankets -fireplace was awesome bonus -Sky TV was an added bonus -interaction with owner was swift and instructions were very clear Could be better -Man cave was spacious

    We felt pleasant during our 4 nights stay in Bach_on_Mata, the bach was well cleaned, the kitchen is modem and easy to use, it was very convenient that the fire place was ready to fire and so sweet to have some toys and books for our little ones. It is recommended to have grocery ready as the super market is 20+Km away.
