  • This house is amazing ! We were 10 adults and 2 babies...

    This house is amazing ! We were 10 adults and 2 babies and the house never felt crowded. It's very well organised and clean. The house is so well insulated that we were too warm when we used the wood stove. I think the only "issue" was that the people in the first bedroom could hear the water pump every time it started. Location-wise, you need a car to get to Ohakune (5 minutes drive) but it's ideal for skiing and hiking. Overall, we all loved the house!

  • Nice modern home, very very warm even without the fire going

    Nice modern home, very very warm even without the fire going. Only one small problem, we believe the carpet had fleas, nothing a flea bomb wouldn't sort.

  • Great facilities

    Great facilities. Such a warm house even when outside dropped to -10 degrees. Great drying room for all of our gear after coming off the mountain. Comfortably sleeps 9-10 people.

    Thanks for the great feedback, Nicola! We're so glad you were warm enough when it's so cold out! Hope to see you again soon.
