You're perfectly situated between two skifields of Whakapapa and Turoa, which are just 30 minutes drive from the home, perfect for the skiers of the group. Stunning views, comfortable living and great ammenities. Welcome to Rivendell!

As there is a shallow pond near the driveway, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.
