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.

I cannot recommend this place more highly. It was just perfect for our family. We went down for a family ski trip and came home having had both a fantastic ski experience as well as an enjoyable family stay at MJs. Everything was there for our comfort and entertainment...TV, Internet, games, cosy fire, comfy, warm beds, hot showers, and a place to prepare and eat large family meals together. Being well situated between both Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Fields, we also had the choice to ski at either. Thanks MJs

The 'Monk Tribe' again had a wonderful stay in this wonderful accommodation for our ski week as a family. We recommend MJS' as the ultimate holiday home from home. Many thanks to our hosts.

It was so good to be greeted by roaring fire when we first arrived - it kept the whole house warm during our stay. The beds were comfy and warm - perfect for after a day on the slopes.
We will definitely be back!
Thank you Jolyn and Mike

MJ's Retreat is probably the best kept secret in the region...and no wonder! The house is set in tranquil surroundings well away from the main road (SH4) and the rail line. A short drive down Hutiwai road and across the stream brings you to the house, surrounded by fields and its own lake, with stunning views of Mt Ruapehu.

The house it's self is amazing, with beautifully appointed spacious bedrooms rooms throughout, it can easily accommodate two families. The living areas are extremely comfortable and guests are provided with a great array of entertainment from board games to the full movie theatre experience and a vast array of DVDs. In winter the log burning fire keeps the house warm and cosy, and in summer the enormous deck offers unrivalled views of the mountain as the sun sets over the lake.

MJ's Retreat is about 15 minutes drive from both Ohakune and National Park and as such is perfectly located for a huge number of activities. The washing and drying facilities at the house are great, so no matter how active, wet or icy your day leaves you, you will be fresh and ready to go the next day.

But it's the personal touch which the owners Mike and Jolyn provide that makes MJ's Retreat the holiday house that we come back to year after year. Guests are made to feel welcome from the moment they book, and that level of hospitality continues even after you leave.
