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. Also the location of New Zealand's most famous hotel; The Chateau Tongariro. There is also the highest golf course in the country (and we keep a set of clubs at the house which you are welcome to use). Taupo is only 1 hour away providing everything from Thermal Hot Pools to Bungys, Skydiving and superb cafes, restaurants and great shopping.

  • Very tidy , cosy little house

    Very tidy , cosy little house . Perfect for a family of five to have a holiday at the mountain. Fire place was amazing kindling all cut ready to light the fire on arrival and also the dvd collection was fab. Only complaint that the red couch has seen better days and was not that nice to sit on with the peeling off leather/pvc but wouldn't put me off staying again!!

  • Perfect base for a family ski trip

    Perfect base for a family ski trip. Whakapapa ski field is close by and it was a short walk down to the pub for dinner. Would definitely stay again.

  • What a neat place

    What a neat place. Cosy, comfortable, well furnished with the best shower south of the Waikato by far. Zinky Base is an ideal stay for families and is well stocked with board games and dvd's for poor weather conditions. Loved it! Will stay again. Z
