  • Easy Drive to Whakapapa and Turoa Skifields
  • Gorgeous Views of Ruapehu, Ngaruahoe and Tongariro Mountains
  • Loads of Tramping and Mountain Biking Right at the Door

Waimanu Mountain Lodge is a 20 minute drive to the fantastic Whakapapa Ski Field. You can see it from your bed as you wake in the morning and you can see the lights of the groomers at night, if the weathers right.

It is a 45 minute drive to the car park at Turoa, another magnificent ski field.

So, listen to the ski report and decide which one you think you want to ski at today.

Or, try to decide if you'll ride your mountain bike on the 42nd traverse, Fishers Track or arrange to cycle the fantastic track to the Bridge to Nowhere.

You may have always wanted to walk the Tongariro Crossing or any of the the other fantastic walks within the National Park.

And then there's the trout fishing. It's all here.

There are tour operators to help you enjoy any of these activities right here in National Park.

The house is within walking distance of a couple of hotels, several restaurants and the ski shop.

This is a fantastic house for two families or a group of friends.

The house has a central shared living area and each end designed for a group of, up to, 7.

Each end has one room with a double bed and another room with bunks and a single bed. Each end also has a shower, toilet and bathroom. The water is hearted by gas, so never runs out. So nice at the end of a busy day.

There is a drying room for that wet ski gear at the end of the day.The cosy wood burner in the lounge has plenty of fire wood and keeps going all night. Lovely in the morning.

The kitchen has a dishwasher and a microwave. There are plenty of everything you need to cook with and eat and drink off.

It has books to read and board games to use on those, stuck inside days.

It has just been recently painted and had some of its appliances replaced. It's a light, modern and cosy house to be in. Our most recent addition is a covered carport with sensor lights to help when you arrive in the night. The woodshed provides you with good dry wood to keep you and your group cozy.
