Superb”

Cosy and comfortable room with fridge and tea/ coffee facilities. Private loo and bathroom was great. Located in a really peaceful area with view of mountain from front of property. There's a view of the garden and river from the room, and the river sounds lovely! Great spot for a cuppa or dinner out in the garden by the river. Hosts are very friendly and kind. 10 mins drive to Ohakune.
This would be very cosy in winter but room heats up in warmer months.

No complaints. Thank you again for hosting us :)”

Andre & Sonja are the loveliest people you will meet and they are big rugby fans! They were very accommodating and made us feel at home. Their home is only a short drive from Ohakune and not far from the Whakapapa turn off. Would definitely stay again!
