  • Lovely use of space allowed 5 visitors to sleep comfortably and privately...

    Lovely use of space allowed 5 visitors to sleep comfortably and privately enough. Nice collection of DVDs available. Comfortable beds, I always enjoy loft rooms, although the upstairs rooms were very stuffy when we arrived. The inspection after the previous visitors was not well done either, with several used tissues lying around and a used mug on the bedside. The rafters were also covered in cobwebs which we dusted and vacuumed. Overall though it was a fantastic little cottage to use and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our daughter is already considering returning with friends. Good value for money!

  • This is a lovely little chalet very well positioned between the town...

    This is a lovely little chalet very well positioned between the town of Ohakune and the start of the Mountain Rd. We stayed there outside ski season, so it was very quiet and peaceful. Its well set back from the road. Although small, it is surprisingly spacious within and there is plenty of sleeping space; great for families or smallish groups who don't mind being close. It was just the two of us so we had plenty of room to stretch out and we loved it.
