About the property

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

This is an iconic Kiwi bach which occupies a prime position right on the lake front with a short stroll to a safe sandy beach for swimming, boating and fishing. The beach is ideal for families with safe swimming for young children.

There are excellent local walking, cycling, and running tracks around the lake and along the Kuratau River. It is an easy distance to the local Omori store which stocks most necessities. A stylish café, within a local vineyard, is within walking distance and is open during holiday periods.

It is a ten minute drive to the Tokaanu hot pools and thermal area. For the more adventurous, take a scenic 45 minute drive to the World Heritage Tongariro National Park with active volcanoes, hiking and the Whakapapa skifield.

Turangi village is a 20 minute drive and has a variety of shops and an excellent supermarket. Turangi is adjacent to the Tongariro River, world renowned for trout fishing. A fantastic cycle track has recently been completed along the banks of the Tongariro and the famous trout hatchery is also an attraction here. Turangi also has a good 18 hole golf course.

All the attractions of Taupo township including two internationally rated golf courses are an hours drive away.

The bach is an independent part of a duplex and can accommodate a total of 10 people, or two families, conveniently. There are four bedrooms, two up and two down. The downstairs is completely self-contained which allows separate areas for two families.

Both upstairs and downstairs have modern kitchens and bathrooms. There is a wood-burning stove upstairs and firewood is provided. Spacious decks both front and back are safety fenced.

The Toy Bach is part of a duplex, so if there is interest in booking the whole complex for a combined holiday then look up Kramphouse #7777. Please make separate enquiries for both properties but mention that you wish it to be a dual booking so we can co-ordinate.

Special conditions:

Decks are safety fenced

Smoking allowed outside only

Pets allowed with prior approval

Families preferred

Provide own linen and towels unless prior arrangements made

Additional cleaning charge will apply for groups over 6 guests - please enquire for quote.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$70.00 per stay); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

We have stayed at this property several times now, so it's a bit like coming home.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times now, so it's a bit like coming home. We love that the place has a sense of history and a family at its heart, which makes it extra special and gives a sense of privilege to the stay. The location couldn't be better. The home is simple, tidy, clean and has everything you need to be comfortable.

The property is located on Lake Taupo, an excellent location to Mt Ruapehu for skiing.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located on Lake Taupo, an excellent location to Mt Ruapehu for skiing. The bach had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to be close to the mountain in winter or the lake for summer activities.

Max has been so right about the place. It is awesome and a perfect place to relax with the lake just infront of the house. Our group enjoyed staying at his lovely home.

It was our second time staying at the Toy Batch and it is a fantastic spot.

  • 4 of 5

It was our second time staying at the Toy Batch and it is a fantastic spot. You cant beat the location, right on the lake so perfect for kids and the dog. The batch is well appointed and has everything you need, it was very clean and tidy and we had no problems at all. Owners were great to deal with and we will definitely be back. If you are staying in winter or if its colder then I would recommend packing an extra blanket as it gets cold at night and the ones on the beds were a bit thin
