The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 Large house, big lounge for socializing, comfortable beds and good showers, good location to ohakune shops and about an hour drive to tongariro crossing. 

Cosy Bach

Cosy Bach

 Comfortable home, cosy and had everything we needed, great location. A little tired but perfect for a weekend away. 

Big Family Home in quiet area of Blenheim

 The house is in a great location - all attractions were within easy driving distance. We had seven adults and there was plenty of room as well as privacy for everyone. All the amenities were available. Blenheim is a great town to vacation in with lots to do. The WW1 Air Museum is a must. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. 

The Lake House Ohakune

 Awesome stay at the house, beautiful setting, fabulous weather and lots of things to do. Tramping, biked the Old Coach Road and drove to the Lavender Farm on the forgotten highway - the X-box didn't come out once even though we had two teenagers with us. Surprising that Ohakune was so quiet when there is do much outdoor activity available. Would definitely recommend as a place to visit. 

Queenstown Chic Chalet

 Beautiful property, amazing views, great location near jet boat and Coronet Peak (5 mins from centre).
