This very stylish house is built and finished for the alpine environment. Zinky Base has two bedrooms, an open plan living, lounge and kitchen area and a seperate bathroom with possibly the best shower in National Park - (ideal after a hard days skiing or tramping). It also has a wonderfull fire place that warms the whole house and a seperate upstairs loft area perfect for the kids to play.

The house is just 15 minutes from Whakapapa Ski Field and 40 minutes from Turoa.

This is an ideal place for families or for a couple (or two) who want to enjoy a winters skiing holiday or a summer escape to explore the many wonderful walks and activities throughout the Central North Island.

Zinky Base is a near new house ideal for your winter skiing holiday or a perfect base for your summer adventures - walk the Tongariro Crossing, to the summit of Mt Ruapehu or ride the new Mountains to Sea Cycleway. There are also other fantastic mountain bike tracks close-by including The 42nd Traverse, Fishers Track and the newly opened Old Coach Road ride from Ohakune to Horopito.

Located in the heart of New Zealand's Central Plateau, on the edge of the Tongariro National Park, National Park Village is the ideal location to base yourself to experience a truly unique part of New Zealand.

The house is very close to the shop, excellent cafes, restarant and local pub. Also easy access to Mountain Bike tracks, world renowned walking tracks, trout fishing rivers and award winning gardens. It is only 10 minutes from Whakapapa Village where you can visit possibly the best Visitor Information Centre and Volcanic Display Centre in New Zealand.

  • Good location being so close to Whakapapa and in the National Park...

    Good location being so close to Whakapapa and in the National Park Village. Reasonable cost. Log burner was brilliant in July with the snow falling outside, kept the place nice and cosy. Just what you want after being on the slopes.
