- english, swedish
I have always loved New Zealand and desired to live here since I was a young girl growing up in Sweden. Now it has finally become a reality as my New Zealand born husband and I moved here in 2017 after living on the island of St. Maarten for 34 years, where we raised our family and developed a business servicing boats. New Zealand is all I ever dreamed of in its natural beauty and with its lovely people - I am very happy to now call it home.
Lena purchased this House in 2018
Why Lena chose Ohakune
Ohakune has so much to offer in the way of adventure and stunning scenery that after visiting a few times staying with friends we decided we wanted to spend as much time as possible there skiing, biking and exploring all there is to do on the trails, rivers and mountains all around so we purchased our property to make this a reality. And we feel we got a real gem of a home - warm, sunny and spacious - has everything we were looking for! And as an extra bonus it is within walking distance to Ohakune town, and with bush walks on our doorstep. Ohakune has everything one needs for a vacation with its activities, restaurants, bars, grocery, and very friendly and welcoming people who make us feel instantly at home.
What makes this House unique
The Mountain View is breath taking - and the sun streaming in all the windows makes for a feeling of outdoor living even inside in winter. With lots of space - enough for multiple families it is perfect for our children and their families to join us, and there's plenty of room for everyone. Being insulated with double glazed windows, fire place and heaters makes it a uniquely warm home during the winter months - after living in the Caribbean for 34 years a warm home is of utmost importance to us :) And for hot summer days there's a small swimming hole in the river only minutes walk away!

Great place for families
This was an ideal property for our visit to the snow! It is very well equipped, very functional and comfortable with plenty of space and privacy available. Everything we needed was there and close to town for a trip to the shops, pubs and restaurants. We highly recommend it!
A very positive vibe
This is the second time we stayed at this property. But now under a new owner. It was clear that Lena has done some embellishments e.g. panel heaters. If you are relatively large group then this is perfect . Lena was very communicative. So absolutely recommend.
Superb location and home
Was a stunning weekend in a stunning location. Thanks Lena!
Comfortable for the whole family 🙂
We came as a family group - my hubby & I and our 5yo,2yo & 10week baby + my brother & his partner. The house is family friendly with large comfortable living areas opening out to a great deck with lovely views of the mountain. Our kids enjoyed the toy box & good selection of movies and the large dining table was great for playing board games and having a few drinks.
The only thing missing was a spa pool but the bath is deep enough to soak after a day snowboarding 👍�
The bushwalking track at the bottom of the driveway is beautiful and well worth doing.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to friends and family & look forward to booking this house again next year 👍�

Great location. Unique mountain views, very quiet. 10 mins walk through native bush along pristine stream to the pub! How good is that?
