Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Comfortable cosy cottage looking straight at Mt Ruapehu. Ideal for mountain bikers, Tongariro Crossing hikers or photographers - a home base to explore the region's scenic delights. Independent from the main house so you can come and go at will. Fully equipped kitchen, TV with Sky, unlimited wifi, laundry, heating & aircon.
One double room and one room with 2 singles, plus a couch bed in the living room and a travel cot.

The space
Eco-friendly with solar panels and if you arrive by train we can pick you up at the station in our electric car. All one level, easy access, lots of parking and storage space. We can mind luggage while you walk the Crossing or go kayaking on the Whanganui River. There's drying space for wet ski gear in winter, (when the cottage can be rented through Bachcare, ID 4630 if we are outside of NZ.)

A very quiet street in a small rural town with fields across the road and uninterrupted view of the mountain. Lots of walks, with plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from.
