Nature lovers' slice of paradise

 Ruapehucorner was once again the perfect location for our weekend of trail bike riding in the Tussock Buster. Our group of nine adults were very comfortable and warm in this lovely and charming house. We will be hoping to stay here again next year. Thanks.

Blue Mountain Accommodation - Your Rural Retreat

 Absolutely fantastic property and location. Our whole group had a lovely weekend staying here. House is immaculate and has everything you need. The kids loved the space inside and outdoors and loved their ride on the ponies. Would highly recommend staying here anytime of the year and Heidi is a pleasure to deal with. We'll be back! 

Little Hill-sun, stunning views & 4 bedrooms

 What a pleasure to stay in such a spacious, clean & tidy house. Fantastic views of Mt Ruapehu from the living areas, kitchen and deck. The large kitchen is equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed having family meals at the large dining table (which is handy for large groups and families). Comfortable double bedrooms. Glorious high pressure showers! The kids loved the books, toys and trampoline. Plenty to do in Ohakune summer or winter, so we will definitely be back!!
