This two bedroom house is available year round. It is close to Turangi's town centre (especially the supermarket) and a couple of minutes from the Tongariro river. It provides a great base for skiing at Whakapapa or completing the Tongariro Crossing.

Bedding consists of two double beds and a fold out double couch. It is furnished with a microwave and washing machine. Please note, though, that there is no longer a TV or DVD player. The house has plenty of basic linen, duvets and blankets -but feel free to bring your own if preferred. There is also plenty of cookware, plates, cups and glasses. The fire in the living room quickly gets the house warmed up.

While it is not flash accommodation, it has everything you need and at $60 per night it is very good value. Please note that: (1) the minimum stay is two nights; (2) you must clean up after you and take away all rubbish - the place relies on the goodwill and consideration of the people who use it.

Special conditions: Smoking is fine - so long as you do it outside. Please wash and dry bedding and tea towels etc. upon leaving.
