A soak in a spa pool, a playground for the kids, and a cosy home to make your mountain base camp. Karamu Cottage offers it all!

Karamu Cottage is a traditional, cosy and comfortable Ohakune holiday home, offering all the essentials plus some enjoyable extras that are sure to improve the classic Mt Ruapehu holiday experience.

Whether it's a snowy adventure on the horizon, or a summer getaway to the Central North Island, Karamu Cottage is a fabulous, year-round family holiday home. Imagine snuggling up when you come back from the day's snowy adventure, the wood-burning fireplace crackling away in the background. Or, treat yourself to a soak in the spa pool to help soften any sore muscles from your day hitting the slopes!

For something a bit different this summer, the kids will be glad for their very own playground in the back garden, fitted with a great ski lift chair and treehouse.

Sleeping up to four guests in two bedrooms, Karamu Cottage is a great place for the family. Bring everyone together for meals in the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, or enjoy a board game or a Netflix movie on the Smart TV.

Stay onsite and enjoy recharging the batteries, or head out on an adventure. There is easy access to the slopes, with Whakapapa 45 minutes, and Turoa just 20 minutes drive away. Head into Ohakune town for some apres ski action, it's only a two-minute drive and you can explore the local shops and cafes. In summer you can also catch the shuttle to hike the Tongariro Crossing!

Karamu Cottage welcomes you!
