About this Holiday House

This very stylish house is ideally built and finished for the alpine environment. Zinky Base has two bedrooms, an open plan living, lounge and kitchen area and a seperate bathroom with possibly the best shower in National Park - (ideal after a hard days skiing or tramping). It has a wonderfull fire place that warms the whole house. It also has a seperate upstairs loft area perfect for the kids to play. Zinky Base is a near-new house ideal for your winter skiing holiday or as a summer base if you're planning to walk the Tongariro Crossing or to the summit of Mt Ruapehu, or any of the other wonderful walks within the Tongariro National Park. There is also fantastic mountain biking close-by including The 42nd Traverse, Fishers Track and the outstanding near-by Pines Mountain Bike Park. Recently opened was the Old Coach Road Track which is an awesome walk or ride from Ohakune to Horopito. This track is part of the new National Cycleway and you will be able to ride to the Bridge to Nowhere this summer once the new track is opened. Zinky Base is just 15 minutes from Whakapapa Ski Field and 40 minutes from Turoa. This is an ideal place for the family or for a couple (or two) who want to enjoy a skiing holiday in the Central North Island or to explore the many wonderful walks and activities throughout the Central Plateau. Located in the heart of New Zealand's Central Plateau, on the edge of the Tongariro National Park, National Park Village is the ideal location to base yourself to experience a truly unique part of New Zealand.

Special Amenities

Although nothing is too far from anywhere in National Park Village the house is very close to the G.A.S Service Station and 4 Square shop, excellent cafes, restaurant and local pub. It has views of Mt Ruapehu and Mt Ngauruhoe. Also easy access to Mountain Bike tracks, world renowned walking tracks, trout fishing rivers and award winning gardens. It is only 10 minutes from Whakapapa Village where you can visit possibly the best Visitor Information Centre and Volcanic Display Centre in New Zealand. Also the location of New Zealand's most famous hotel; The Chateau Tongariro. There is also the highest golf course in the country (and we keep a set of clubs at the house which you are welcome to use). Taupo is only 1 hour away providing everything from Thermal Hot Pools to Bungys, Skydiving and superb cafes, restaurants and great shopping.

Great little house with maybe the best water pressure! Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, easy to find. Great communication with host. I would recommend taking some newspaper and firelighters as it is not guaranteed there will be any but plenty of firewood and a great wood burner that soon heats up the house.

This a fantastic property! It's really well located. I've stayed in other places in National Park and they've been really cold, this place is super warm and cosy.
Fantastic place to stay - warm, cosy, quiet, close to everything. Have recommended to others and would definitely do so again.

The house is fully self contained with the exclusion of linen (towels, sheets and pillow cases) however we do provide excellent duvets and pillows. This allows us to keep our nightly rates down as we find many guests may prefer to bring their own. However if preferred we can provide all your linen requirments for a small additional fee of $25.00 for your entire stay.

There is also a $50.00 cleaning charge. We ask guests to leave this at the house for our cleaner.
