  • We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Pourakau Bay

    We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Pourakau Bay. The living room and kitchen were modern and the views from these spaces were simply spectacular. We also appreciated the amenities (e.g. kayaks, SkyTV, WiFi) that were available. However, the bathrooms, while functional, could probably do with an upgrade (which the rest of the property seems to have had).

  • We had a fabulous stay at this property

    We had a fabulous stay at this property. The house is lovely and had everything we needed. The closeness to the lake was awesome and private. We enjoyed feeding the swans every morning before heading off for the day. A pretty cheeky male ginger cat was very persistent on claiming the house for himself whenever the doors were open but we managed to keep him out for the most part. We would absolutely recommend this property to others and would stay again ourselves.

  • Lovely place, right on the lake

    Lovely place, right on the lake. Very clean and comfortable. The lake was beautiful to swim in and the provision of the kayaks was a nice bonus. Location only a short drive from town too with a wee shop within walking distance.
