- 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!

The house was perfect for the 7 of us. We loved the huge sunny deck and the enormous kitchen was a bonus! Lena was excellent and very responsive. The house is set in an idyllic spot - the views to Mt Ruapehu were amazing. Highly recommended.
Great place. We will be coming back.

Everything we needed and more.
Lena’s place was exactly what we were looking for. A relaxed, comfortable, warm place for our ski trip group of 7, but could have easily catered for 10. Details such as coat hangers and open shelf space in each room for ski gear and an abundance of blankets and heaters were a nice touch. Will definitely be coming back!
Great ski house or two families
Great place. Lena is lovely - great comms and info. The improvenents they've made are really good, extra heaters and the ski gear porch. We'll be back.
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!
