Bach or holiday home | Raurimu | #2733
Plenty of room, Freeview TV, great woodburner, home theatre, awesome drying room and NO BUNKS. Come and make the most of the "Adventure Plateau", with Haven as your base. In Spring/Summer you can sit out on the large deck and watch the sun go down over the flowering dogwoods, with the river babbling in the background and warbling tui's and bellbird's doing their last rounds. When it gets cooler, snuggle up around the fire with a glass of mulled wine and a good book, play cards or bring along your favourite DVD movies.
For the more active, Haven is nestled between the world heritage Tongariro National Park, Tongariro Forest Park, and only a stones throw away from the Whanganui National Park, Haven offers an awesome base for your Central Plateau adventures.
Raurimu is home to the world famous Raurimu Spiral (2nd level visible from the front porch), and is only 20 mins to Whakapapa ski field, 40 mins to Turoa ski field, and about 20 mins to the nationally renowned Taumarunui Golf Course.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is rated the best one day trek in New Zealand, and listed by many as one of the top-ten day treks in the world. Haven is the perfect base for the Crossing, and Plateau Shuttles can pick you up from Haven in the morning, transport you to the start of the track, and pick you up at the other end. You could prepare your meal in the slow-cooker before you leave, and have it ready and waiting for you when you return.
But wait, there's more (sorry, no Ginsu knives), Central Plateau offers the best mountain biking in the North Island (42nd Traverse, Fishers Track, John MacDonald Loop), skiing, snow boarding, mountain climbing, hot pools (Tokaanu), climbing wall, trout fishing, horse riding, quad biking, paintball, tramping, kayaking, rafting, scenic flights, natural history, hiking, canoeing, easy day walks, art & crafts, restaurants, pubs, Lord of the Rings filming locations, Waiouru Army Museum, Tongariro Crossing, summit climbs, bird watching.

We love staying in this house: awesome fireplace, heaters in every room, big dining table, lots of couch, 2 bathrooms, entertainment for children, drying room and close distance to whakapapa ski field. It's perfect for us 2 families (8 people).
Very roomy property and great back room with fire place where we hung out each night. Only reason it isn't higher stars is because it's a typical well-worn family holiday home i.e. very basic condition from use over the years. That said, the price reflects that, and it was well equipped to serve all our needs.
First time staying at Haven for my family and we really loved it. Very cosy and comfortable with plenty of space. Nice being so close to the mountain that we could make the most of our weekend. The fireplace was great to warm up by after a day on the slopes and the kids loved that their were heaps of board games to play. The lounge was a huge hit with everyone given there were so many couches that you could have one each to relax on! Will definitely be back next year
