The house was beautifully welcoming with a fire when we arrived for a family mid winter celebration. It is very comfortable and so cosy with awesome views of the mountain. We especially enjoyed the grounds with little children making it a fun place to explore. I recommend this as a perfect place to stay for any summer or winter activities.
Thank you so much to Jolyn and Mike for a lovely stay at what is arguably one of the best holiday homes we have stayed at. The house is spacious, warm and beautifully outfitted with vintage and antique furniture. All the beds have electric blankets and even the bathroom has underfloor heating - but that fire keeps the whole place toasty warm!! It really is a home away from home and an ideal place for a relaxing spot to get to the slopes (placed half an hour from both ski fields) or, if you're not skiers like us, just a relaxing place for a winter holiday - especially if the snow comes to you! Special thanks must be given too for the gift of the world-famous Ohakune eclairs, which was going the extra mile in terms of hospitality. (Oh and if you love good music, you're in for a real treat with that CD collection!)
This place was great, the kids loved playing in the snow around the house. The fire was sooo warm and the owners were very friendly and communicative.
