A beautiful lakeside setting for your next holiday. This comfortable, well-appointed chalet is situated at the Junction end of Ohakune - 5 minutes walk to restaurants and bars, and 20 minutes drive to the Turoa Ski Field. Ohakune is also a great base for exploring all the other attractions of the region.

The open-plan kitchen/living room is at the heart of the house - with all-day sun, and a wood-burner to keep you cozy through the night - all wood supplied. A large double window seat with lake-views is a great place to play a board game, or curl up and read a book. Upstairs there's a large mezzanine area to spread toys and games. There's also a canoe stored under the house which you're welcome to take out on the lake. Each floor has a shower & toilet, and there's a large drying/storage room for ski gear on the ground floor. Double-glazed windows throughout. Table seats 10 with extra chairs available. NB house may not be suitable for toddlers as no stair guard, or fire guard.
