    “What a wonderful place!”

    It is very cosy, clean and extremely well equiped. We just loved everything about the house and would have loved to stay longer.

The property

Perfect for a family getaway or a ski trip with friends, this simply gorgeous Ohakune home enjoys lovely mountain views and will transport you right into a snowy fairytale! Welcome to The Gingerbread House with Spa! It really is all in the name at this three-bedroom beauty, where the European ski chalet meets that warm fuzzy feeling you get at Christmas. But don’t let its cute exterior fool you, for a sweet snow re"treat" awaits indoors! With an abundance of picture windows and skylights, The Gingerbread House with Spa offers sundrenched living on its second storey. Light the wood-burning fireplace after a day on the mountain, fill the place with toasty warmth, and snuggle up on the couch. You’ll have a Smart TV and DVD player on hand for entertainment, and complimentary WIFI so you can post photos of your epic day on the powder. To unwind after a day of action, the glorious spa pool awaits! On a summer getaway to check out the biking and hiking scene, open the sliding glass doors and soak up the sun on the deck. Enjoy a morning barista-style coffee from your fully equipped kitchen with the breeze blowing on your face, while your bikes are safely stored in the shed. Three bedrooms here at The Gingerbread House comfortably sleep up to seven guests. A bathroom and laundry combo, with the convenience of a separate toilet, completes the set up for your stay. There’s even a drying room for your ski gear at the end of the day! Tucked away on a quiet street with a grassy reserve across the road, The Gingerbread House is a great place to holiday in itself, but we know you must be in town for at least a bit of adventure! Enjoy action-packed days on the slopes of Turoa, just 20 minutes drive away, or make the trip to Whakapapa in just under an hour. On days when you need a rest, take a short three-minute drive into the village and visit the shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars, or walk to the Powderkeg in about the same time. For a cosy stay in a home packed with novelty charm, welcome to the Gingerbread House with Spa.

Please note that guests need to bring their own espresso (not plunger) ground coffee to use the coffee machine

Please note young children should be supervised on the balcony due to its height off the ground.

Please note young children should be supervised around the woodburner as there is no fire guard.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
