Overview

About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

One of the original homes built in Kinloch, this family holiday home is located in the heart of Kinloch, overlooking the Kinloch Marina and entrance. A deck opening off the lounge offers stunning views of the surrounding locality, the marina, and with views of Lake Taupo across Whangamata Bay – especially in the evenings with the spectacular sunsets. A BBQ and seating on this area provides a great area for socialising.

Amenities within two hundred metres of this property include the foreshore of Lake Taupo with good swimming and picnic facilities, the Kinloch Marina and boat ramp (almost adjoining), general store, a restaurant, two public tennis courts, the starting point of the W2K walk, a children’s playground, ducks and swans for children to feed and the iconic Kinloch pedestrian bridge. Another cafe, restaurant, 10 hole public golf course, the Kinloch International Golf Course, and more tennis courts are within 500 metres. Kinloch has numerous walkways, reserves and tracks ideal for family walks and bike rides (bring your bikes). Kinloch is handy to the great trout fishing area of the Western Bays. Taupo township with further tourist attractions is only 20kms away (15 minutes drive), and the ski fields are a one and half hour drive.

This stucco home has 3 double bedrooms in the main part of the house, with facilities to sleep another 2 people in the attached self contained games room/flat. There are two bathrooms, and 2 separate toilets. The Bach has gas heated water. While iconic features of a Kiwi bach still remain, the original 1960's kitchen has just been replaced with a modern open plan kitchen / dining / lounge area. This is a comfortable holiday home with a superb location and unsurpassed views of the marina and lake.

The section has plenty of off street parking for cars and boats, and has an outdoor fish bench (for those in luck!).

Special conditions:

Smoking outside only.

A cleaner is available at an extra cost if requested.

The BBQ is to be left clean.

If a breakage should occur please replace it, or notify the owner. No pets.

We ask that you respect our special family home, and ask that you leave it as you find it. We know that you will enjoy your stay!

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

This place is a lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a lovely spot! It has amazing view of the lake and the perfect spot to sit back and relax. Walking distance to the lake front, shops and marina. Great base to do the Great Lake bike/walking tracks. House is well maintained and has everything that you will need for your stay. Will definitely like to return.

Stunning location, immaculately presented home, new carpet and kitchen in pristine condition and lot

  • 4 of 5

Stunning location, immaculately presented home, new carpet and kitchen in pristine condition and lots of equipment, very warm fire, made for a very cosy stay. Beds were very comfortable. View is amazing. Older style home with old style furniture that has all been very well looked after and presented. This gives character and charm. We highly recommend this home to rent.
