About Geraldine Healy
I am a school teacher and own this chalet in Ohakune which is my retreat from the busyness of work- love the walks in summer, they are varied and superb and adore the snow in the winter. I love tramping, hiking, bike riding and snowboarding- so this area is ideal!
Geraldine Healy purchased this Chalet in 2015
Why Geraldine Healy chose Ohakune
The benefits of the central plateau in both winter and summer are amazing!! You really do get the best of both worlds.

Very very quiet
Good and affordable
Good accom for 2 couples - maybe a bit tight for any more people. Kitchen well equipped. Beds comfy. Good location.
Perfect spot to explore Tongariro National park.
Difficult to access the property...
Key code was wrong, when tried to contact owner there was no response. When a response came it was via email - not everyone has access to email when on holiday, and it was a 9pm. Apparently the owner knew the code was incorrect and had not sought to ensure it had been fixed. We have small kids and without the very helpful couple who own the unit behind, we would have been rather stuck! I'm not sure the inspection had been done after the previous people as the windows were open and the level of cleanliness was questionable.
Not the best but wasnt bad for the price
Overall a comfortable stay. The house needs a bit of a clean, cob webs upstairs and a stain on one of mattress protectors that looked like a biohazard.
The main problem is the pin for the key lockbox. The bookabach email lists the wrong one and we had to call the owner at 10.30pm to get the correct one (not exactly ideal for either parties) owner was aware of the pin issue but did not contact us in advance to advise.
Found it a bit odd that we have to turn the hot water cylinder on ourselves.
The location is great and the house has everything you need. Aircon worked amazed during a very hot summer weekend !
Couple of things that need to be address but overall we had a good stay.
Very good value
Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Linen not included but may be hired for nominal fee. Make sure you take note of the latest combination for the key locker. Property manager was very efficient and helpful.
