Step back in time at this traditional cottage, where captivating mountain views, an outdoor bathtub, and enough room for two families make for the perfect base for your next getaway to the snow. Welcome to The Woodturner’s Villa!

Tucked away on a large section, this homestead style cottage will make you feel like you’ve been whisked away to a mountain retreat, despite being just eight minutes walk from the town centre.

Come home from a day on the slopes and light the log burner for a toasty evening snuggled up on the couch in your spacious open-plan living room. Admire the mountain views out of the panoramic picture windows, put your feet up on the chaise lounge, or get cosy together on the couch and laugh about the fun you had on the powder today. Use the complimentary WIFI to post your favourite snow snaps, or put the TV on to just chill.

If you're here on a getaway where the weather is a little warmer, make the most of your tranquil outdoor space! Enjoy kicking back on the verandah, admiring those mountain views, or why not fill up the outdoor tub and soak those tired muscles after a day on the trails.

A fully equipped kitchen is on hand to prepare those hearty meals to give you energy for your adventures. You’ll have volunteers running to help with preparation thanks to the same panoramic views creating the perfect backdrop to dinner time. Later, let the dishwasher take care of clean-up, and retreat to the cosy bedrooms to recharge the batteries.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms here at The Woodturner’s Villa offer the space and convenience for up to 10 guests. You can even bring your furry friends along - pets are welcome inside at this home away from home!

In the morning, whip up a hearty breakfast and simply look out the window to check out the snow conditions. It's just over 20 minutes to the slopes of Turoa Ski Field, and about an hour to Whakapapa. You’ll be hitting the powder in no time!

If you fancy a bit of apres ski action, you can stroll to town in less than 10 minutes, or you can drive there in just 1 minute! Grabbing the ski shuttle or a bevvy and bite at The Powderkeg is also a breeze with The Junction less than five minutes away by car.

For a traditional piece of mountain magic, The Woodturner’s Villa awaits!

Wonderful place to stay with an absolutely breath taking view of the mountain. We hope to come back again next year!

Stayed June 2021

Amazing property close to Ohakune! Can we loud at night with road noise but the house is so good you can put up with it! Beautiful view and amazing amenities!

Stayed May 2021

Our stay at the Woodturners Villa was exceptional. The place was beautifully clean on arrival and we had everything we needed. The fact that the place was pet-friendly was the icing on the cake. Stunning views to the mountain, great access to Ohakune township, massive bedrooms with heritage character, and a gorgeous fireplace fully stocked and ready to go were just some of the highlights. Thanks for an amazing weekend away!

Stayed April 2021

Our family had an enjoyable stay at the Woodturner’s Villa. The house was spacious, had comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. The view of the mountain was wonderful and it was only a short walk into the town. The only disappointment was the traffic noise through the night but then the property is on the main road!
