This property has the X-Factor! Gorgeous Log Cabin, quietly tucked away and surrounded by trees and fields, with a park next door and a river running by... a rural setting, yet only 600 meters to the middle of town, and complete with unlimited WIFI.

The Kitchen has Dishwasher, Fridge/Freezer, Oven, Microwave and small appliances, including coffee plunger and teapot The upstairs loft does have saftety railing but if you would prefer the kids on the same level, the downstairs L-shaped lounge has a mattress base and is made up with cosy wool rests and fitted sheets and thus can double as two single beds for the little ones, toe to toe! (approx six feet long each way from corner, see pics) A very private, 600mm high fenced deck with access from the lounge/dining has an amazing unobstructed view over the paddocks to Mt Ruapehu Shutters on all the windows add to the security of a monitored burglar alarm and professionally installed fire alarms The fire can be loaded up and turned down so it is going 24/7, you never need to reset or light, there's a drying area behind A carport provides undercover access to the cabin The log cabin construction holds the heat in the winter and keeps the cabin cool in the summer You are also welcome to bring your well behaved dog on holiday with you to stay at the cottage, as long as they are house trained and well behaved and stay off the furniture, (including the beds), and if this isn't possible, if you can please bring clean sheets from home to cover the furniture, and beds, where they may be, and of course all poops need to be scooped. My cleaner does charge an additional $25.00 for the clean after a dog has been staying which is added on to the standard cleaning fee, and IF there is evidence that your dog HAS been ON the furniture, to be fair to the next guests, she washes all the couch cushion covers etc too and this extra ($25.00) cleaning charge is also passed on to me and taken from your bond after your stay.

    What guests are saying:

    “This place is exactly what you see in the photos and more, I had my 3month old boy and partner and it definitely delivered, we actually had to book another couple nights , from the beautiful view, which I believe is Mt ruapehu, which is right outside the cabin, to the beautiful locals at ohakune, the highlight for me was the bathtub outside, looking out to the mount and star gazing. The best, cheers Suzi”

    What guests are saying:

    “Such a great adventure! There were so many submarine themed touches throughout. I’m not sure if we noticed them all. Our son enjoyed the upstairs area where he could pretend to be the captain. Like you would expect inside is compact but it has everything you need. The sofa isn’t very comfortable to sit on so we sat upstairs. Everything was clean. If you have the opportunity to stay here don’t miss it!”
