Miharo Lodge is a tidy, single-storey 3 bedroom house situated in the quiet village of Rangataua. Less than a 5 minute drive to The Junction and Ohakune, this is an ideal base for a Mountain getaway!

Miharo means 'to wonder at, or admire'... the open-plan living and dining area has french doors opening onto a large deck with amazing views of Mt Ruapehu and Turoa Ski Area. Just pull the curtains to check the snow report, or kick back after a day on the slopes and enjoy a stunning mountain sunset!

This Rangataua holiday home sleeps 7 people comfortably, with a maximum occupancy of 8. The house is ideal for couples or families, with double beds in all three bedrooms. The third bedroom has a single bunk above the double bed. There is also room for a fold-out bed (provided) in one of the main bedrooms, should an extra 8th bed be required, and a portacot is available. All beds are fitted with electric blankets to keep you warm and toasty. Warm duvets, extra blankets and hot water bottles are also provided for your comfort and convenience.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped (high-chair provided) and the house has a separate bathroom and toilet. The spacious lounge has a large fire which keeps the entire house warm and cozy, with heaters provided in the bedrooms if an extra burst of warmth is needed. There are plenty of drying racks supplied so your gear will be warm and dry for the next day's skiing or boarding. Should you decide to stay in, the living area has a stereo with mp3 input, Freeview TV and a DVD player. There is also a second Freeview TV in one of the bedrooms.

Miharo Lodge is approximately 5 minutes drive (4km) to The Junction and the beginning of the Mountain Road, leading up to the Turoa Ski Area. Ohakune township is only 6 minutes drive (5km) away. Whakapapa Ski Area, on the other side of Mt Ruapehu, is approximately 40 minutes drive by car.

  • This bach felt like a home

    This bach felt like a home. Our almost two year old loved it as much as we did. It was beautifully warmed with a fireplace and there was even consideration for the opposite end of the house with two oil heaters available. This place had everything we needed and it was so nice to be in what felt like home. Thank you so much.

  • We loved staying here

    We loved staying here. Place was clean and tidy. The bedding and especially pillows were also clean and refreshed, which is always nice. Great fireplace and it was appreciated on our arrival that the heating was on an fire ready to go. Perfect for a cold winters night. Would definitely stay here again. Many thanks.
