  • Great location

    Great location. Excellent outdoor and living spaces. Lovely comfortable beds. Bathrooms in desperate need of an upgrade, they are literally falling to pieces. Shower over the bath in the main bathroom fell of the wall on our first night.

    Thank you for your great feedback on the location, outdoor and living spaces and bed comfort at Pourakau Bay Holiday Bach. The incident with the shower was most unfortunate and has been addressed. Both bathrooms are in full working order. Thank you again for your feedback.

  • Great house in a fantastic location

    Great house in a fantastic location. Being right on the lake was beautiful to wake up to and we were close to all the activities in Rotorua. Especially enjoyed the kayaks on hand. House well appointed with amenities. Beds super comfy and house clean and tidy. Really looking forward to staying there again in the future! Thanks so much!
