Bach or holiday home | Kuratau | #4916
Luxuriously appointed 2 bedroom chalet (see also our 3 bdrm chalet listing 4917) situated in the centre of our producing vineyard. Luxurious and private but just a few steps to our tasting room,cafe or a short walk to the lake. Our cafe (open during school and public holidays 10am till 4pm) Now operates a wood fired pizza oven, serves fine coffee, wedges with sour cream and sauces, freshly baked cookies and of course our fine single vineyard Pinot Gris, Blanc de Noir and Pinot Noir. Our flagship 2008 Methode Traditionelle and a Pinot Gris "Ice style" desert wines are superb! All this can be enjoyed overlooking our pristine vineyard from our wide second story cafe decks!
Take a kayak for a leisurely paddle down the river to the lake, fish,swim,sail,water ski or let us book you a rafting trip on the mighty Tongariro River. Try snow skiing during the winter months, it's just 45min to the Top of the Bruce at Whakapapa skifield from here.
Local walks,tramping, hiking (or "rambling" for you British folks) abound and we are happy to advise on the gear required and suitability for varying fitness levels.
Within an hours drive of several top class golf courses.
Perfect accomodation for cyclists if you are involved in one of the many around the lake events.
Any help we can provide to make your stay at our place more enjoyable we will gladly provide - just ask! Wireless internet is available via "Zenbu" - check it out!
Helicopter flights either scenic or to get you to a secret fishing spot are available from the vineyard.
Guests will obviously need to shop for food - the nearest supermarket is in Turangi which is about 20mins drive to the South. There is also a well stocked local dairy and petrol station (The Omori Store). If you are arriving late please be aware that you will be hungry unless you have your own supply of food!
Please note our on site café is only open during the Summer school holidays and Easter.

Not only is this an idyllic location with beautiful scenery but the cottage itself has all the mod cons you could want with high quality linen and it was very tidy. If you want a peaceful place to be to contemplate life and get away from it all this is the place for you, I cannot wait to come back and stay again.
beautiful location, awesome accomodation - very comfortable and an absolute pleasure to stay here. The only minus was we had thought they had wood fired pizza available from the cafe but this is actually only during school and on public holidays
