Perfectly positioned halfway between the Ohakune town centre and The Junction, this four-bedroom holiday home offers a superb base for your next mountain getaway. Welcome to Kartar!

Completely refurbished and boasting toasty warmth thanks to a wood burning fireplace, heat pump, and full insulation, you’ll love coming home to Kartar at the end of an adventurous day.

Make yourself at home in the spacious living room, where a TV with Freeview and Chromecast is set up for entertainment, and complimentary WiFi keeps you connected. A fully equipped kitchen also makes sure you can self cater your stay with all your favourites.

Just as perfect for a summer getaway as a winter one, Kartar offers fantastic outdoor living. Soak in the sunshine on the partly covered deck as the kids enjoy playing on the flat, fully fenced lawn.

Four bedrooms here at Kartar comfortably sleep up to eight guests, with configurations perfectly suited for a family getaway. The master bedroom features a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom, with a second family bathroom completing the set up for your stay.

If you’re planning on hitting the slopes while you’re here, you’re just a 20-minute drive from Turoa and 50 minutes from Whakapapa. On a summer getaway, why not hit the trails in the Tongariro National Park, also less than an hour’s drive away.

When the weather calls for a day in town, wander 850m into the centre where you’ll find shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars, as well as all the modern conveniences. Just a little further in the opposite direction you’ll find The Junction, where the Powderkeg offers a cosy spot to settle in for a bite.

For a toasty warm, family-friendly base on your next Ohakune getaway, Kartar awaits!

Stayed July 2022

Our stay was amazing! Thank you for sharing your home with us this weekend. We will absolutely come again. Some amazing positive bits: 1. The fire place is amazing 2. The house was very clean and comfortable 3. The showers are amazing. Such nice pressure and the infinity gas means every one gets a nice warm shower. 4. The fridge and oven and kitchen utensils are nice and clean and feels homely enough to immediately make a family dinner and even having some random tidbits available for that incase you forgot something moment. 5. The vacuum was amazing and made cleaning up easy. 6. The property is totally fenced up ensuring our pet could stay safely inside...maybe a bit of a gap under the gate that would allow a smaller dog to squeeze through...nothing some plastic chicken wire couldn't fix. 7. Amazing TV and sound making family movie nights fun 8. Good Wifi to keep the teenagers alive and kicking Only things that I would add on my wish list would be electric blankets and maybe a bench by the door, to help the oldies sit to put their shoes on. Only issues but not massive... 1. Not always controllable by you I guess, but there were 2 fairly big piles of dog poo outside the gate...easy to step in when unloading the car. I want to say it might be a passing dog...but it almost looked like someone gathered it there... 2. The oven door gets unhinged when using it. Might need a wee bit of a service. But those are small things...and it didnt hinder our stay at all. The house was amazing...and you will absolutely see us again. Thank you so much!
