A welcoming unique chalet located in Turoa Alpine Village.

This holiday home is great for families, friends and everyone wanting to enjoy the snow.

Located within walking distance to Ohakune Township where you can enjoy restaurants, bars and cafes for your entertainment.

Open outlook and heaps of space for the kids to play on the large section.

You'll find a home away from home set in the picturesque green surroundings of Turoa Village.

  • Perfect place for a short stay - a nice little cabin set...

    Perfect place for a short stay - a nice little cabin set in a friendly area. Perfect for kids and a dog. Only downside is that it can be a bit chilly even with the woodburner going - but you'll be fine if you bring a few jumpers.

  • Very good and spacious property

    Very good and spacious property. Good section. Why not install a new LCD TV on the wall and offer freeview? Costs next to nothing, but will add greatly even if you install a second'hand one.

    Thanks for your feedback. Freeview and new TV are all hooked up. Can bring own sky decoder.

  • Great place with enough room to be cosy

    Great place with enough room to be cosy. The fire was great (in the middle of summer!!) and the bed comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom was adequate and the place was well equipped. The woodshed was well-stocked. Only improvement would be a Freeview receiver and aerial (in the woodshed), but the TV and DVD player was OK.

  • Very basic and tidy Accomodation

    Very basic and tidy Accomodation. Suited our needs for a snow weekend. Only thing I would recommend is more entertainment options. Freeview, sky tv or internet would have been great.

  • Very basic property

    Very basic property. It says in the description it has a tv. This only works to play DVDs through it. No washing machine or dryer. Stairs very unsafe for small children you would need to bring a gate with you.
