  • Lovely, warm, cosy & comfortable property

    Lovely, warm, cosy & comfortable property. The wood burner warmed up the house nicely. The kids bunk room was perfect for 6 kids with plenty of space to play too. Drying room was a bonus after a day up the mountain. A great few nights in Ohakune!

  • The bach is lovely, tidy & cosy

    The bach is lovely, tidy & cosy. We had plenty of firewood & heaters and it is an easy drive to the ski field. I do think it would be nice for complimentary hand towels in the bathroom. Would recommend!
