ShaliniStayed April 2022
The house is warm enough during winter time. Spa pool is a good option in the property. House is not clean enough and the duvet covers on the the beds are very old and ugly to use.
HridayStayed December 2021
Property is very warm, but lacked any cooling devices (fans, etc) so not ideal for a summer stay but can imagine it'll be great during the ski season. It's not in Ohakune but very close to it in a very quite village. Very peaceful stay minus the hot house in the middle of summer. Would recommend staying here during the winter only.
JessStayed September 2021
Amazing to stay in such a warm place so close to the mountain! I was super impressed with the straw bale insulation!! Great size and layout for an extended group.
NodaloStayed August 2021
The house is very clean and warm. Our children were very comfortable.
GavinStayed July 2021
Great place to stay with plenty of room for the four of us. Can accomadate two families easily with the two separate toilets and two separate shower room. Great laundry/mud room. Very close to Ohwakune, less than ten minutes if the rail road is taken.
SueStayed June 2021
One of the best places I have stayed. Outstrips other motels, hotels and other book-a-bach's. Would recommend this to everyone.
ScottStayed April 2021
My wife, kids and I loved it, was a huge place for 4 people, has a fireplace which we didn't need to use as it was very warm inside, would love to visit in winter time when its snowing!
TimStayed August 2020
Very easy place to stay with two toilets and two bathrooms everyone was ready on time. Warm house and great fire. Also a drying room which is great when skiing. Just out of Ohakune but close to the Mountain.
