 Great place for families - our boys loved it. Lots of space for kids to run around and board games to keep them busy. Neat, tidy. Beautiful view of the mountain from the end of the driveway. Laundry can be used as a drying room for wet days (maybe that's a normal thing in NZ - but a handy thing to know for international visitors). Chairlift on Whakapapa side of Mt Ruapehu runs over summer - there was still enough snow/ice for a snow fight in mid January 2015. We will return and stay longer!! 

 Quiet, clean and well equipped. 

 Great place to stay. Super easy to arrange. Thanks. 

 Great little, well-equipped cabin. Convenient location, clean and quiet. 

 Third time staying here. Love it!
