Whiowhio lakehouse rests on the side of the Kuratau river and is set on two acres of private land. It is a 2min walk to the lake front and river mouth-or a five minute swim instead! There is a private boat ramp available. It is set up as two separate units joined by a huge deck with gorgeous macrocarpa furniture for some outdoor dining and/or drinks. It is surrounded by farmland and edged with native bush-enjoy the tuis, fantails and lots of quail running about! The units are comprised of one large end which has a huge living area, kitchen, laundry, bathroom and three bedrooms. The other end has a kitchen, bathroom, lounge and two bedrooms. There is plenty to do with the river and lake so close, bush walks nearby and the hotpools over the hill. We welcome your enquiry!

Special conditions: Min two night stay. $225 base rate for up to four people, additonal $25 per person thereafter. IMPORTANT NOTE: Linen is supplied to the extent that the renters only need to bring and use their own sheets, pillow cases, towels and flannels. There is plenty of bedding in terms of pillows, blankets and duvets for use.

  • Super spot, super home for large families

    Super spot, super home for large families. The 12 seater table made dinner times a real family affair. Would def hit 5 stars in my book if beds were updated and there was a garden type lockable shed where you could store your own bikes and kayaks securely at night. Super access to the river and massive lawn for cricket. A gem

  • Beautiful spot

    Beautiful spot. Amazing scenery with incredible wildlife and river views. Old style Bach but very clearly well looked after. Very 'kiwi' living. Absolutely mind blown at how incredible this spot was! Made our wedding weekend that much more special. 10/10, people, you must stay here!!
