Turoa Yurts are awesome. Fantastic homes, high quality furnishing in a great location. Highly recommend.

It was fun to stay in a yurt! It was definitely a unique experience, the yurt was very cosy, and there's something about the circular shape that is somehow energising. I'm not generally very woowoo, but I definitely felt it. :) We had everything we needed (except wifi). It was convenient to everything in Ohakune, and very private. It would be even better if it was upgraded to have wifi and maybe had more comfortable beds.

We had a great stay and the previous reviews didn’t quite do it justice, we were surprised how good the Mangawhero yurt was. The yurt is such a good family friendly layout. The open kitchen and lounge area made it easy to watch our young kids crawl around without worrying about stairs or a fireplace hazard. The heat pump worked really well, we never felt cold. The rooms had their own little heaters too which were great for keeping the young kids warm through the night. All beds were comfy. Both bathrooms were very clean and tidy. The entrance room was so good for drying and hanging our wet snow gear , they were easily dry by the next day for us to use. The Yurt managers were great and easy to communicate with. Will definitely be looking to book again next year when we return. Ngā mihi
