Really enjoyed our stay at the Snow Globe, nice and warm as heat pump was on when we arrived. Plenty of extra blankets. Lovely kitchen items. Beds are comfortable enough. Lovely shower. Remember to take your own milk and condiments as Only Coffee tea and sugar supplied. A rail on the steps up to the house would be ideal for those people that need support, especially the elderly or when slippery. We had trouble finding the right Yurt as we arrived at night and there was no number or letter box that we could see, a neighbour had to point us in the right direction. Overall nice accommodation thankyou.

The Yurt itself was absolutely amazing, we loved it! Super spacious, tidy and everything you could need. Unfortunately, two months after we booked it we were advised we would need to pay a $750 bond for the weekend as there was an event on. By this time there was no other accommodation left in Ohakune so we had no choice but to pay it. 11 days after checkout I have finally received the bond back on my card. As much as we loved this accommodation, we will no longer be using bachcare because of this.

We had a great stay at the yurt. it is great being in a round house, and was lovely and warm on cold evenings. Also great to see the view of the mountain when the clouds went away!

Was an amazing place to stay, all my friends loved it. Such a good space to hangout plus have your own chill time.

An amazing property. So warm and cosy for a winter ski trip. Had everything we could ever need! Loved the large living area for socialising. The kitchen was stocked with everything to make a scrumptious meal. The.instructions and guides everywhere were very helpful. The beds are comfy and there were extra blankets provided. The shower pressure is perfect, especially after a big day of skiing - 10/10 recommend to anyone and plan to stay again in future!

Fantastic holiday home winter or summer. We loved the wooden smell as we walked in, the high ceilings, smart design and feeling of home. All the games for the kids, the cleanliness of the house and the feeling of luxury was all we could ask. As for the view of the mountains with a glass of wine, after a hard day's tramp..not bad at all!
