Alpine Chalet is a welcoming, warm three storey property, with lovely, hand crafted solid wooden features & a real alpine atmosphere.

Only 2 mins drive from the supermarket, shops and info center, it's a fully self-contained, family-friendly place - a perfect base for your adventures in the Ruapehu District.

With 5 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms over 3 floors, it's an adaptable property for small groups of couples or friends (cozy enough for just 1 couple, if you just use the top 2 floors ) and geared to families or even 2 families together. We limit occupancy to 2 per room so you don't get that crammed in feeling.

The living area opens up onto a large deck/entertainment area with outdoor table and chairs and a BBQ- the perfect place for sundowners after a hard day exploring the Mountain.

To keep warm, there's a new heat pump for the living area and upstairs bedrooms along with a night store heater and eco panels in the downstairs bedrooms. There's spare blankets & hotties for everyone for those chilly nights, along with continuous gas hot water for hot showers.

The kitchen has a gorgeous solid wooden breakfast bar and rimu floorboards, along with a new dishwasher. Entertainment-wise, we provide 2 Freeview TV's with DVD players, along with a selection of family friendly and kids dvds.There's a big toy box full of clean, complete toys, kids books and a selection of board games for those less than bluebird days. There is a radio & CD player, with a Bluetooth speaker so bring your sounds along. We do not provide an internet connection at the house, but the connection for mobile internet is good and there is free internet available at the library and a Spark hotspot in the main town.

Outside, there's a carport for two cars along with space for parking on Park Ave.

Please note if you have very young children or people who find stairs a challenge, the staircases are steep. We can provide 2 safety gates to keep the living area secure. Please contact us to discuss this.

Special conditions: Maximum occupancy is 8 adults at any one time - groups of 10 are allowed as long as there are at least 2 children aged 14 and under. Only the number of guests paid for are permitted to stay at the property during a booking. A refundable security and cleaning bond will be required and will vary $200 and $500 depending on size of group and length of stay.

  • The house is in an excellent location

    The house is in an excellent location. Close to the junction and a nice stroll into the centre of town. The house is very clean and comfortable with plenty if seating for a large group. The kitchen is well equipped. It was great having so many bedrooms and the teenagers loved having their space downstairs. The stairs were good for getting the tired skiing legs working. My only suggestion would be a clothes basket. We will stay here again. Thank you Paula for letting us share your home.
