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, horse riding and rock climbing (indoor and outdoor). 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.

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.

Enjoy all the photos on the walls and see if you can identify the native bird calls on the bird clock!

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.

    This property was so incredibly comfortable due to the intensive care the owner has taken to insulate and heat the home in an eco-friendly way. Didn't even need to turn the heater on, it was that warm. The kitchen had the sharpest knives I've ever used in a holiday home as well! Very well equipped with everything you need as well. The bird clock was a bit of hooting surprise haha.
