Description

  • A 1960's retro themed house, with modern updates and touches to ensurecomfort, a large backyard
  • Close to the Mountain, Turoa 30 mins away, Whakapapa 45 minutes away,and just 11km from Ohakune
  • Year round access to the Central Plateau's wilderness and year roundoutdoor options, snow and fun.

Built in 1963, we have taken a run down and badly maintained almost 50 year old lady and given her a major face lift. TradeMe has been scoured for authentic 1960's sofas, dining table, velvet paintings, even cutlery and crockery to provide a complete feel.

Added to that we've installed a full bathroom complete with bath and shower and a kitchen with dishwasher to make life as easy as possible during your stay.

We think we've done a great job and we'll do more later, but for now, come and take a look at a what's now a gracious lady with many more years to come.

In 2014 we have had the floors sanded and polished throughout - they look great!

And this year (already) we've added a deck (straight off the kitchen area) with the option to step straight into the spa pool from it. There's some work to be done, power, lifting etc but we are excited and hope it will be a favourite option for the summer and winter months for a quiet drink and watch the mountain.

In 2014 we added a 'vintage' spa pool, currently sitting just outside the back door, this gas heated (bring a gas bottle) spa sits with a view of the mountain - settle back and watch the groomers headlights move across the Turoa slopes in the evening while you soak away the aches from the days activity - we supply a gas bottle (the heater is gas powered) and the spa is up and running for you)

Since buying the house we've discovered that the region is a year round option, spending a lot of time there over summer but of course the winter season is when most people turn their mind to the area. There are walks and hikes on and around Mt Ruapehu, short walks, longer hikes and of course the Tongariro Crossing.

And now, we have updated the TV to a 'smart' model and there will be access to Wi-Fi at the house from the end of August onwards; your call as to if you use it or not but the code will be provided if required

Special conditions: The house is no-smoking, smoking outside only and clean up all butts

  • Lovely place to stay for our family of 5, the house was...

    Lovely place to stay for our family of 5, the house was great to come back to after a day on the mountain, really cosy and warm and had everything we needed. The hard drive plugged into the TV had a brilliant selection of kids movies - just what the kids needed to settle down while we were cooking dinner, and we appreciated the board games available for use too. We had a wonderful family holiday and made lots of great memories, thanks Campbell for having us to stay at your retro bach.

    One of the best stays in rented property we've had, the place is waaaaay better than it looks on pictures, it feels like Campbell thought of everything, the place has EVERYTHING — from bottle opener (if you're after European wine ;)) to fluffy rugs in the bathroom. Can you imagine anything better than sitting in the hot spa pool when it's -1C outside after a day spent on a cold mountain, and then sitting in the warm and cosy living room and staring into fire? I can't :D

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for the great feedback, I can't take credit for the furnishings etc. - that's all down to my wife's eye for design and her love of TradeMe ;-)
