This property has the X-Factor! Gorgeous Log Cabin, quietly tucked away and surrounded by trees and fields, a park and river running by... a rural setting, yet only 600 meters to the middle of town. Its a 3 minute drive, (20 minute walk along the Maungawhero River Walkway, 100 meters from your door), to "The Junction" apres-ski bars and restaurants
In Winter the fire will be going, the house warm and cosy for your arrival... relax and enjoy all the comforts of home in this fully furnished Cabin. The lounge and Main Bedroom both have TVs, there's a DVD/Video recorder, 2nd DVD Player and SKY plus MYSKY for recording programs or catching up on those you have recorded at home! Peak SKI season has SKY MOVIES and SKY SPORT too :)

The Satin-Jet shower gives you the most amazing adjustable shower and gas hot water heating means you can stay in there as long as you like... perfect after a day up the mountain, or hiking or biking the many tracks in the area

Bed Linen and Towels are provided. The Kitchen has Dishwasher, Fridge/Freezer, Oven, Microwave and small appliances, including coffee plunger and teapot

The upstairs loft does have saftety railing but if you would prefer the kids on the same level, the downstairs L-shaped lounge has a mattress base and is made up with cosy wool rests and fitted sheets and thus can double as two single beds for the little ones, toe to toe! (approx six feet long each way from corner, see pics)

A very private, 600mm high fenced deck with access from the lounge/dining has an amazing unobstructed view over the paddocks to Mt Ruapehu

Shutters on all the windows add to the security of a monitored burglar alarm and professionally installed fire alarms

The fire can be loaded up and turned down so it is going 24/7, you never need to reset or light, there's a drying area behind

A carport provides undercover access to the cabin

The log cabin construction holds the heat in the winter and keeps the cabin cool in the summer

  •  Had the most wonderful time at this gorgeous cabin! It would be absolutely incredible as a romantic getaway, too late for that for is though with a newborn & a toddler later & yet it was equally as incredible for a family getaway. The loft was fantastically entertainer for our toddler & great exercise for is too. The cabin is beautifully clean & well stocked for everything you need. We will be absolutely be making it an annual visit as much for the cabin as the snow! 

  •  What a treat staying at the log cabin, it was exactly what we wanted and more. Considering the weather at turoa, the canon was the highlight of our trip. Such a stunning spot for a winter getaway. The cabin was warm, beautiful and well equipped with everything we needed. Will definitely be staying again! 

  •  We had a lovely time at the Log Cabin and everything was pure perfection. We will definitely be back.
