A true Kiwi bach experience.

Sitting on the shore of Great Lake Taupo is this genuine family bach.

Originally built in the 1940’s as a fisherman’s hut it has been extended and updated over the years in true Kiwi bloke style, recently redecorated to create a more homely feel.

Enjoy the views through the two large picture windows looking across and up the lake towards Taupo. The bach is perfectly positioned to see the often beautiful evening sunsets.

25mins south of Taupo, 15mins north of Turangi and 5 seconds from the water!

Freeview TV is available.

Duvets and blankets are provided and you can either choose to bring your own linen or pay a small additional cost for sheets.

UPDATE: We have added two wall heaters to the bach so feel free to try a winter getaway and within an hour you can be on the skifield!

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only Sorry we do not allow pets to stay at the bach Families, Couples or 'mature' adults preferred

    We absolutely loved this place - the quintessential kiwi bach in an idyllic location. The bach is simple, which is part of its charm, but very well equipped. It had everything we needed for a great holiday. We'll be back.
