Lakefront Holiday Home

 Clean, neat & tidy, very friendly hosts. Great location with magnificent views and beautiful sunsets. Great 20 minute walk into town along the lake's edge, great value for money. 

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. 

Lake Tarawera - Lakefront bach

 What a fantastic summer week we had at this property. The weather was great and the property features and facilities were just as good. Amazing swim beach from the reserve adjacent to the property, boat ramp so handy and the house had everything you could possibly need. Thank you for sharing your holiday paradise with us. 

High above the Ida valley. Views to the Mountains

 Excellent modern house with everything you need - we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend 

Lakefront Holiday Home

 Lovely location with fantastic views!!! 

Nature lovers' slice of paradise

 Beautiful gardens, clean, bright and comfortable house - and close enough to the shops. We stayed in summer but the house looks well equipped for winter as well. Highly recommended.
