  •  Lovely, neat and tidy place, had everything we needed. 

  •  My family and I had a very enjoyable week long stay during Dec/Jan at Morepork Cabin. It is a great space, with a wonderful ambience. Waking up to a view over an ever changing Mt Ruapehu was fantastic! The Cabin is well equipped and had everything we required during our stay (especially enjoyed lighting the wood burning stove in the evening). Ohakune and surrounding area is an ideal place for a summer break - lots to see and do whether rain or shine! Highly recommend! 

  •  THe cabin was exceptionally well presented, clean, tidy and comfortable. Lots of easily accessible firewood and the best firelighers! Lovely spot to relax after walking the Tongariro Crossing, and I heard a morepork, yay!
