Welcome to Ohakune "Where Adventure Begins". Those are the words that'll greet you as you enter from the south, by the famous giant carrot. That's where you'll find our home, just a short walking distance from the beginning of adventure and small stroll into town for hot coffee, good food and a nightlife that punches above its weight.

Position yourself here for your Ruapehu ski escape, do the famous Tongariro Crossing or rent a bike and smash some tracks. Your adventure begins here.

You'll feel right at home here. This house has everything you need to relax in comfort after a day hiking, skiing or biking. The spacious open plan living and dining areas are all within reach of the modern kitchen, making it really easy to gather your friends for a memorable time.

We've got this new fandangled wifi lock system, so we'll give you your own unique code for the duration of your stay. If that fails, we've got a backup key in a lockbox - so don't worry, you'll get inside.

We have covered parking for one vehicle and enough space for another uncovered. We also include free wifi internet and you're welcome to use Netflix on the Apple TV during your stay to binge watch a show or two.

As much as you'd enjoy me hanging around, We live in Auckland and won't be here. But we are always just a message away and can deal with anything remotely.

Ohakune is a cute ski town, but don't be fooled, it has a lot to offer all year round. From mountain biking to stunning nature walks and hiking the Tongariro Crossing. You'll have plenty to keep you occupied for a relaxing retreat or action packed escape.

Depends on your walking speed and how cold your toes are in the winter season, it shouldn't take you long to get into town. A couple of minutes by car or 15 - 20mins walk via the famous Ohakune Carrot. A perfect opportunity to get a selfie or seven.

For now, all heating and cooking are electric, including the hot water. This means if you're part of a large group the hot water could run out. We suggest you keep showers short and space them apart.

  1. Cozy, comfortable and close to town, not to mention quiet. My friends and I did the Tongariro crossing and had a great time staying at Ohakune-Matata.

  2. Our stay was excellent. The home was well appointed, comfortable and stylish. After tramping all day it was great to be able to cook a healthy meal and sit back and watch a few movies in front of the flicking gas fire. We loved it!

  3. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay even though we were unable to do the Tongariro Crossing (which is what we had travelled for). We'll be back again next year to try the Crossing and we wouldn't hesitate to book here again. Quick and accurate communication was what we appreciated the most; especially when we left something behind. Fantastic customer service, above and beyond. Thank you again.

  4. Would highly recommend this house. Very clean and had everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. A nice easy walk to the town where you can enjoy one of the many places to have a meal/drink or whatever you are wanting.

  6. We were on a road trip and stayed at Ohakune-Mayada on our way North. We enjoyed the place a lot during our stay and decided to go back a couple of days later on our way South. We definitely recommend this place.

  9. Was an awesome place to stay with a group consisting of 3 couples and a 2 year old. Cosy, warm house with plenty of room for all of us with an easy walk to the town and the availability of WiFi was a bonus. I appreciated the customer experience received and would definitely stay again - maybe in summer when we can make use of the BBQ and deck.

  10. Thank you so much! The chalet was everything we needed. We travelled down from Auckland with 4 adults and 2 kids and after a long drive it was relieving to arrive at the chalet, it was everything we needed. The electric fire place and heat pump quickly warmed the place, the drying room was great for all our snow gear and the kids loved a bath after a day on the slopes. The beds were super comfy and the rooms were all a decent size to get around. The chalet is a great base for Whakapapa slopes, only a 45min drive but like all of NZ it's scenic so the time flies. We will definitely keep this as our go to when we return next season.

  16. A private, well equipped home. Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Good satellite TV and plenty of card and board games plus a small selection of novels. Nice sunny deck in lovely garden with small view of Ruapehu. Covered Parking. Secure Sport gear storage at back of car port. A previous tenant had turned off the heater's internal controls so we couldn't turn it on at the wall. One call to Jason and we managed to sort it. The comfy large brown sofas have seen better days, but other than that we really liked this modern family home.

  17. Spend the night at Ohakune-Matata. Fantastic home with beautiful decor. Great value for money. The only thing was the flakey leather couches. Material has come away on most parts of them which is unpealing and messy looking. House would look better without them. Other than that minor detail - it’s GREAT!!!

  18. This is my third time at Ohakune-Matata, as you can tell this is my go to holiday home. Fantastic host, 100% communication from beginning til end. Love the jets on the bath too. Great feature. Plenty of room to bring your friends, or leave them behind if you want a romantic weekend away with just your best friend. Would recommend to all.

  23. Very cosy modern home a stones throw away from town. Fantastic facilities, everything you needed after a full day on the slopes. Spa bath, heating, electric blankets and Apple TV. Jason was an excellent host, quick to respond, informative information for check in and good advice in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

  32. Good location and nice house. However the bathrooms were uncleans (mold in the showers and dust everywhere) and there was a foul smell in the under sink cupboards when was very unpleasant. This is disappointing given the massive cleaning fee of $80. For that fee I would expect the home to be very clean. Having the cleaner waiting outside the property at (9:40 also made us feel we were getting rushed out when check out was not until 10).

  40. We had a family member to visit who was not very well and rather than our family of 6 crowd their surroundings, we decided to book a motel. It is our first time to Ohakune and we had travelled from Australia. I chose this property based on the capacity and price. Best decision and choice I have made for accom in ages. Highly recommend this property. Convenient, great price, modern facilities, accessible, clean and homely!
