Description

  • Mountain views from the couch, bedroom and outdoor bath. Play boardgames, foosball or table tennis!
  • Eco design, most insulated house in the district! 4km from Ohakune Township and Turoa Road.
  • Modern furnishings allow maximum relaxation WITHOUT tv and wifi to distract you from your holiday.

The Mountain Greenie offers a chance to relax in a modern house with a stunning rural setting. It backs onto a bush reserve and looks over the forest at Mt Ruapehu. Originally a railway township Rangataua is a charming town where we walk and ride our bikes on the streets. The trains don't stop these days but you can wave from the deck! Five minutes to Ohakune or the Junction, nothing is far away if needed. In just over 20 minutes you can be in the Turoa carpark!

Close to ski fields, the Old Coach Road mountain bike trail, bush walks in a World Heritage Area and the epic Tongariro Crossing day walk. Also canoeing, kayaking and rail car trips within an hour. Enjoy Cafe's, shops or the library in Ohakune or just chillax at home. There's something for everyone.

Built as a prototype house with a double wall cavity, it's level of insulation is twice the industry standard. It is fitted with thermal blinds, natural flooring (cork, bamboo, linoleum and wool carpets), recycled wooden benches and dining table. The kitchen and bathroom cabinetry is made locally and with beautiful birch plywood. The macrocarpa seating on the large sunny deck was milled just down the road and the outdoor baths will amaze!

In the house you can plug your music into the speakers (standard 3.5mm jack), watch a movie (bring a dvd or USB stick), play board games or flick through magazines. There's also a house information booklet if you'd like to know more about the house you're staying in, how it functions and why it looks like it does.

In the garage there's foosball, table tennis, a spectator couch and a drying room (to help keep the humidity down in the house!) and room to store all your bikes and skis.

The Mountain Greenie is designed to be both a learning opportunity and a wonderful getaway. If you're up for either of those things then it may be just what you're looking for.

Special conditions: * this is a shoes off house (welcome to bring slippers) * please don't be wasteful of water, we're on tank supply * the house is not suited to toddlers with heaters and drops etc * no WIFI/TV/SKY as you're here for a holiday! * no hot pots/dishes straight on wood benches please * there is a bond required for each stay ($300)

  • The place was spacious and warm

    The place was spacious and warm. Very friendly cats from next door visited often much to the boys delight!

    You have to go and stay at the Mountain Greenie, and take some friends and family with you! It's an incredibly warm and comfortable place that feels just like home within minutes of arriving. Beds are super-comfy, inside showers and outside baths are awesome, it's cleaned to a high standard, and the kitchen is well stocked. We really liked the location at Rangataua, close to Ohakune but a very different "old country town" feel to it.

  • An amazing property

    An amazing property. Very clean and well thought out. Incredibly warm and comfortable. The kids really loved the table tennis and foosball table in the garage. Will definitely be back.

    We loved the house, it's tranquil location, all the background information about how the house came about and what went into it, the space, the outside baths, and the visit from the neighbour's very friendly cats when we were in the baths :). The furnishings are new, fresh and comfortable.

    Wow, don't know where to start! We had a week in Ohakune with mixed weather, and not once did we need the heating on. This Bach truly lives up to the claim of being the warmest house in Ohakune!! Well equipped with everything we needed and more. Extremely clear instructions to make for an easy stay... Oh and did I mention the outdoor baths (and the view) - nothing better than starting the day looking up at the mountain watching the lights of the snow cats grooming the days trails. A hidden gem!
