Pack your ski gear and head to Ohakune to enjoy great mountain views and a laid back atmosphere at this fuss-free, two-bedroom holiday home. Welcome to The Shack!

This is the kind of place you want to come home to, put your feet up and just chill after a full-on day up the mountain. Light the log burner and get cosy in your open-plan living, dining, and kitchen space; the TV and complimentary WIFI on hand for entertainment.

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 deck, admiring those mountain views, or why not fill up the outdoor tub and soak those tired muscles after a day on the trails.

The Shack sleeps up to six guests across its two bedrooms, and offers the ideal set-up for a group of friends on an adventure getaway. 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 in your well-equipped kitchen 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 simple slice of mountain magic, The Shack awaits!

Stayed July 2021

Perfect home and location for kids to enjoy.

Stayed July 2021

The shack is a lovely, cosy place to stay and the views are sublime. Some areas need a bit of upkeep, but overall I would recommend staying here.

Stayed June 2021

This is a lovely copy place to stay with a group. The fire was able to heat the room quickly and we were never cold. The welcome gifts on arrival were an added touch and the outdoor bath was appreciated by us all. Loved waking up to the view of the maunga. Would stay again!

Stayed April 2021

Traditional Bach style property, nice and cozy with awesome views of Mt Ruapehu. Loved settling in and starting the fire to keep warm for the night. Only 5 minute stroll into town to check out the local bars and shops. Would definitely stay here again
