The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 Great bach, great location, very nice and cosy, accommodated 10 of us very well, well equipped, we all had a great stay 

Waikura Lodge, Ohakune

 Great place to stay, nothing flash but everything you want is there and it works as it should. Amazing water pressure in the showers! Very close to all conveniences including Mountain Kebabs (best kebabs in the world). Would gladly go back. 

The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 house located in a quiet area. Neat and tidy with plenty of activities provided,dvds,reading material etc. Very warm which would be welcome on those cold nights. 

Southridge Stay - Ohakune Chalet

 great location with it being a nice walk to both the junction and ohakune centres and it has a fantastic neighbour who kindly offered to babysit 

Modern and comfortable with views of mountain

 We had the privilege of staying in this gorgeous home for 9 days during our 3 mth vacay through nz and this was the best accomm. we've stayed in so far. The house was spotless and its furnishings were high end and modern. The beds were so comfortable! The property, though a very short walk to everything you'd need in ohakune, felt very private and we enjoyed drinking wine on the beanbag chairs watching the setting sun. Never met the owners but through emails they were helpful and friendly. 

miropark mountain magic
