Description

  • Fabulous birdlife
  • Short 5 minute walk to New Zealands famous Lake Taupo and streams for trout fishing
  • Walk to Oreti Timeshare a great venue for a wedding

Coming to Pukawa to attend a wedding at Oreti or looking for a bit of relaxation or trout fishing in New Zealand's famous Lake Taupo or maybe just somewhere to relax after a days snow skiing? HazyDaze is located in a quiet bay, surrounded by native bush and perfect for relaxation where you can enjoy a game of petanque or toast marshmallows over the open fire or watch the tui's feeding.

Pukawa Bay, situated at the southern end of Lake Taupo, is a quiet, bush clad settlement with tons of bird life 15 minutes drive to the famous Tongariro river, 15 minutes from Turangi township, 10 minutes from the natural hot pools at Tokaanu and 40 minutes from the ski fields at Mt Ruapehu. It has numerous bush walks, a restaurant, and in Kuratau (5 minutes drive or 20 minutes bushwalk) a store, olive oil estate, winery and art galleries.

The beach is safe for swimming and kayaking with a boat ramp and plenty of room for parking trailers. There is a large park for exercising dogs or for ball sports.



HazyDaze is a traditional A-frame bach with heat pump so is always cosy, has a small ’love-shack’ out the back and a large relatively flat section and only 5 minutes walk to the lake and several small local stream mouths for the fly fisherman. There is under cover parking for one vehicle and space for more.

There are numerous things you can do including walking the Tongariro Crossing, one of the top 5 one-day walks in the world, take the kids to the trout hatchery, play mini golf, trout fishing or laze around the bach reading books in the cosy window seat, play available board games or watch DVD's.

The owner is an experienced fisherman and can offer fish guiding trips and catered options. Please talk with the owners if you are interested in either of these possibilities.

All beds are comfortable with duvets supplied. Please bring your own sheets, pillow cases, towels and tea towels. There is a well stocked pantry, however please replace any items you finish.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed OUTSIDE only. Dog's allowed. Please NO cats as we have allergies to them. Check in 4pm. Check out 11am. Please ask if you want to arrive earlier or leave later as we may be able to accommodate

    Great spot, second time there and we will definitely be back. Would highly recommend, Pukawa is a prime spot and Hazydaze is a great place to kickback and enjoy.

    We had a lovely time, the Bach was cozy, clean and well maintained, with the lake only a 5 minute walk away. We chose the spot because it was peaceful and surrounded by bush and even though it was winter we saw plenty of native birdlife (even a Morepork sat on a fence!). All the facilities were in clean working order and we were never cold (good little heat pump). Would happily stay there again!
