    Location is great, in the middle of the country, close to the ski resort (20 min drive) and all other necessary amenities like shops, banks etc. At the same time quiet, safe and friendly neighborhood. The view of the mountain is great!

  • We couldn’t believe how delightful the property is both inside and out

    We couldn’t believe how delightful the property is both inside and out. It felt like staying in someone’s beautiful home. Cosy cottage, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Spacious lounge area. Plenty of books and games if it happened to be a wet day. Pretty deck and gardens lots of outdoor seating. Would love to stay again.

  • Throughly enjoyed our stay

    Throughly enjoyed our stay. Kosbys Cottage has that extra something, it feels more like a family home than a holiday cottage which all adds to the enjoyment. Fantastic walks within the area, the friendly town of Ohakune had everything we needed. We hope to return on our next trip to NZ.
