Bach or holiday home | National Park | #26591
This bach is spacious - 5 bedrooms (all carpeted except one rimu floor) and a large lounge. Perfect for a couple or the whole family. The floors have been restored to their original polished rimu and the beautiful traditional coal range provides heating and cooking - makes the best roasties! We supply wood, but bring manuka if you want an infusion of fabulous flavor. Most of the bach is native timbers, and these have been exposed where possible for an ambiance befitting a building built circa 1900.
One portacot and baby bath.
50 DVDs to watch on the non ski days:
Plenty of warm blankets. Comfortable beds.

We had three families stay all with young children. Went up to happy valley ski field. What a magic experience. The house was perfect for us as there was plenty of space for 13 of us! Main living area and two bedrooms nice and warm - heat pump. Three bedrooms not connected to main living area were pretty good also - heaters. TV with DVDs for the kids were great when we got back. Should have brought the kids bikes, quiet streets. Loved see the spiral. House has good vibes, recommend :)
Simple but spacious house. Its good that there is no Wifi meaning more quality time with family and friends. Good location, close to Tongariro crossing and Mt. Ruapehu. Old bach, really cold in bedroom at night due to the heaters with short timers. Overall we enjoyed our stay!
Great location I have stayed here 3 times. Twice for skiing and once for the Tongariro crossing. It is a super place for 1-3 families. Big house. Loved the place for skiing, great heat pump, fire, heaters, drying areas and SPACE + no slippery carparks! Cant rate the space enough, older character house with good vibes. The railway line, 1 min from the house, my kids found quite a few secret mountain bike maintained tracks that off shoot from the line. Great place for kids & nana
I would stay here again but not in winter. The pros: Large enough for big groups, big dining table, good counterspace in kitchen, novelty of coal range, wetback for nice hot water for all, heatpump, close to mountain, two bathrooms, cheap to rent. The cons: VERY cold in winter (especially the back part of the house), bedroom heaters on short timers, no electric blankets, cold beds. Basically, this place would be great in summer but if you want warmth in winter then it's a nah!
We had a great holiday, was a really good property with enough bedrooms for all of the extended family. Really well equipped place with everything we needed. Raurimu is a great place for a nice chilled out holiday with good mountain biking and walking tracks close by. Thanks for a great stay.
