  • A holiday home with character and charm

Owhango is conveniently located close to Mt Ruapehu skifields (Whakapapa is about 30 min drive), and the Tongariro Crossing. It is also the end point for the 42nd Traverse. There are many other attractions nearby, such fishing, canoeing. A central location for many summer and winter outdoor activities. Owhango is on SH4, between Taumarunui and National Park.

The cottage is about 100 years old and oozes character and charm. Heating is by a Kent fireplace in the kitchen and supplemented by oil heaters in two of the bedrooms. The two queen-sized beds both have electric blankets. An open fireplace in the lounge provides a cozy feel on those winter nights. The two bunk beds are king singles. With a fridge, dishwasher, stove, and microwave in the kitchen and a washing machine in the laundry, you can make this your home away from home.

There is ample offstreet parking for a few cars and a carport at the rear of the house.

We provide firewood, matches and firelighters, but recommend that our guests bring a box, or bag, of kindling to assist with starting the fire.

Some books and board games are provided and can fill up the evenings and help families spend quality time together. Kindly note that there is no TV or DVD player provided.

We will not accept bookings for one night only. The bach is set up for families and we will not accept bookings for groups with more than 4 adults. The bunk beds are designed to handle children or teenagers and not adults, especially the top bunk which has a maximum weight limit of 65kg. Thank you for noting this.

Special conditions: No smoking anywhere on site. All rubbish to be removed.

  • Very well equipped, clean and quiet

    Very well equipped, clean and quiet. Great to have comfortable beds. Handy location for 42nd traverse and wonderful bush walk just 5minutes from the house. Check out the blueberry farm if you are staying Dec-Feb!

  • Lovely cottage and we'll equipped

    Lovely cottage and we'll equipped. I was worried it wouldn't be warm enough with two young babies. But the fire in the kitchen kept it toasty warm even through the night.

  • We have stayed in a few baches and this was the most...

    We have stayed in a few baches and this was the most comfortable bach for the price. Has all the amenities apart from TV which was not missed anyway and they even provided towels, pillows and linin for the beds. It was a warm house (with heaters provided) which felt very nice and clean. Thanks again.
