 Easy to deal with, professional, timely responds to my emails and questions. We loved our stay and love followers the owner prepared for us. We had a great time! Many thanks... 

At Makaranui, Ohakune

 Property is perfect for two and very private. Ideal for us. Very comfortable and cosy. We spent a lot of time inside due to weather and found it warm and comfortable. Be prepared for no cellphone coverage :-(

 The bach was very tidy and cosy. The location was excellent, very close to the shops in Ohakune, and not far from the Turoa Skifield. This was exactly what we wanted when we were looking for accommodation in the area.

 Lovely little cabin on a huge section. Everything you need is in there. Unlimited hot water was a treat after a long day on the mountain. 

At Makaranui, Ohakune

 The property itself was small but it was perfect for the four of us who spent most of our time out and about anyway. It was very warm and cozy, which was very ideal for the cold weather. Great place!

 beautiful meandering lawn, bush including many established native trees, gardens wild grasses and very simple cosy place to stay. Outlook includes a family home. The couple who lived there were unobtrusive but wonderful in the brief meeting, and really hospitable.
