  • Fantastic mountain view from the lounge & main bedroom.
  • Easy 5 minute walk to the Ohakune town centre and facilities.
  • Winter time full week special only $930 (exc school holidays).

A very warm cosy, but roomy, chalet sleeping 5 comfortably (7 max), suitable for families or couples looking for a great all year round base from which to explore all that Mt Ruapehu, the Central Plateau and Whanganui River have to offer .

Within an easy walk of the Ohakune town centre, Ski/cycle shops, and even the "Vertigo" rock climbing wall! A park and childrens play area is also located 50m around the corner. The drive way leads directly onto the mountain road for the 20 minute drive to Turoa ski area.

The Chalet has an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area which opens out through the ranch slider onto the deck to enjoy the great view of Mt Ruapehu. Electric heating warms the whole place up very quickly. A carport provides cover at the back door keeping you dry when unloading your vehicle.

Upstairs opens into a bedroom with 3 single beds, and a separate bedroom with double bed (incl. electric blanket) . There is also a fold out sofa bed in the lounge but no extra bedding provided for this. We find the water heater provides adequately for 5 but if you want to sleep up to 7 some patience may be required.

A large airing cupboard is available for hanging damp ski / hiking clothing, with storage space in laundry area for skis & boots.

As well as being close to the Turoa ski area, Alpine Abode is close to the pleasant Mangwhero river walk & the adjoining Old Coach Road walk/cycle way. Alternately take a short trip to experience the activities (Jet boating, Kayaking/Canoeing, Tramping, Trout fishing) on offer in the Whanganui River National Park or some of the amazing walks, tramps, cycle trails & volcanic mountain scenery in the surrounding Tongariro National Park enviroment.

Mid-week special (excluding school holidays)- book 5 nights (Sunday to Thursday) and only pay for four.

Special conditions: Minimum 2 night booking. Bond required. No smoking or pets allowed inside.

  • The chalet was charming

    The chalet was charming. Perfect for a family with loads of room. It was warm, quiet and cozy with a hot water cupboard to keep your towels dry & toasty. Great bathroom & kitchen. Off street parking. It was everything we could have asked for in chalet village area. Close to bars, cafes and supermarket. Boutique style cafes in a central area. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for the perfect short, long term stay.
