Newly renovated accommodation where the old farmyard barn once stood, the old barn was transformed into a family unit and studio unit, together making a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation. Brand new furniture and fittings makes this a very comfortable modern stay. Well insulated so you keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Surrounded by a large deck and 2 acres of land, sit back and relax and take in the fresh air and fabulous view of Mt Ruapehu. Trampoline and swing set available on property to use and lots of space for the kids to run and play.

You will find some indoor games and toys for the kids to play with too.

We are a 25min scenic drive to Whakapapa Ski area and mountain tracks throughout the Tongaririo National Park. Just north of National Park which is the one stop in the area for grocery supplies, restaurants, cafes, bars and ski hire. We are only 5kms south from the quaint village of Owhango, which is home to bird life, an organic blueberry farm, access to Whakapapa River and is situated at the end of the 42 Traverse, world renown mountain bike track. Only a short drive back to the Barn to relax after an active day.

Being a top adventure destination of NZ you have the opportunity to ski, snowboard, hike/run, climb, kayak, take a jet boat tour, fish, mountain bike, quad bike, scenic flights and take in some of the more relaxing activities such as visiting the hot pools, playing golf and a monthly Sunday market in Owhango.

    This was our second stay and the place was clean and tidy just like the first time we stayed there. Our youngest enjoyed playing with Tarshia and Roy's girls and feeding the lambs was the highlight of his weekend.

    The property was very lovely, modern and clean. With everything we needed. The place was warm when we arrived. In a nice rural spot not to far from everything. Great little getaway. Defiantly want to come back next year. 10/10 recommended
