A nice cosy place to stay! Loved having the wood burner and there was plenty of dry firewood provided (just bring matches or a lighter with you as none here). Duvets were nice and warm, and the heaters provided kept the child's bedroom nice and warm. Kitchen was well equipped, apart from only 2 chairs at the kitchen table which meant the three of us had to take turns sitting for breakfast (passed on this feedback to the house owner, so hopefully more will be provided).

Very simple but lovely home, remember to take everything as not even salt and pepper is at the property so bringing everything in a must.

There were quite a few issues with the property which we faced on arrival: only one smoke alarm installed and it had a flat battery. Oven did not work. Washing machine only filled up with water and then stopped working. Glasses and some other dishes were not clean - needed to be washed before use. Can opener didn't work. Fuse kept tripping when heater and appliances plugged in at the same time. No water one morning because the pipes had frozen. Thankfully, Jo was able to assist us with most of these issues, but it certainly added a lot of stress to our holiday. The oven now works perfectly. Two new smoke alarms were provided the next day. Once the other issues are sorted it is a reasonably priced, basic family home to stay in. Lovely log fire and plenty of firewood provided, as well as an electric heater for each room meant we were always warm. Location just a few minutes from Ohakune was lovely.

A nicely kept and comfortable old house. Great for relaxing in front of the fire or as a base for a variety of day activities near by. Easy bike ride along Dreadnought Rd to Ohakune, off from the main road.

We really enjoyed staying at this property. The fireplace was great and there was plenty of dry wood to use. The kitchen was well equipped and having extra heaters for the bedrooms was great. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time at Oroua Cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and was a real home away from home. We had a power cut one night (through no fault of the owners/property manager). Jo got onto the electricity provider right away and sourced some candles for us in the meantime. We were very impressed and felt really well looked after. We also loved the location. Rangataua is a lovely, quiet settlement perfect for a family holiday.
