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 magnificent view of Mt Ruapehu. The property boasts 2 golf greens, golf clubs available to use to practice your chipping and putting.

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, a top café, access to Whakapapa River and is situated at the end of the 42 Traverse. Only a short drive back to Ruapehu Barnstay to relax after an active day.

  • Bach was immaculate and had everything you'd need

    Bach was immaculate and had everything you'd need. There was lots of information about things to do in the area along with maps, brochures etc. I would 100% recommend. Thanks Tarshia

  • Great location! Quiet, comfortable, well appointed and warm

    Great location! Quiet, comfortable, well appointed and warm. Close enough to Whakapapa for easy snow access, but far enough out that in case of poor weather it can turn into a romantic weekend getaway.

  • Highly recommend this place, I arrived late, on a freezing cold night

    Highly recommend this place, I arrived late, on a freezing cold night. Heater was on making for a lovely warm welcome. Extremely clean, tidy and quiet. If you would like to make this place a 10+ (at the moment my rating is 9), being able to lock the door would of been a bonus and a griller to melt cheese on toast. Thanks heaps for a great place :)

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your feedback. Response to your comment about door being able to lock. The lock on the door is escapable, which means in an emergency you can get out of the unit quickly. If you have turned the latch on the inside of the door to the vertical position it would be locked from the outside. This is to reassure you the unit is safe and secure, no one can enter from the outside when latch in vertical position, even when you can turn handle from inside. Apologies for not explaining this.
