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. 

Modern and comfortable with views of mountain

 Very nice condition property and excellent location. 

Southridge Stay - Ohakune Chalet

 It is a nice house, with a character. It is well maintained, haven't noticed peeling paint anywhere. Some frying pans may have been better, but who needs them, right? It was enjoyable stay, would come back.

 Absolutely perfect! 5 minute walk into town, if I could be bothered to move off the lovely sunny deck. Everything we needed plus more was supplied. We'll be back! 

The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 Blue batch is a lovely and cozy house with a great location to shops. 

Waikura Lodge, Ohakune

 The perfect place for a getaway. It has everything you need here. 2 showers and toilets makes a big difference for groups. Large backyard which is fully fenced off for children to play games etc. Highly recommend it for families and groups. Walking proximity to town. Quiet area with friendly locals. Will definitely be staying here again. A+++
