This Cottage is close to Bush, Walking Tracks, Mountain Biking, Cafe's, Skiing, Snowboarding. You’ll love our farm because of the Nature and close proximity to Ohakune and surrounds. This place would be an ideal getaway retreat for families.
The house available for short term rent is a three bedroom cottage. It is located at the end of Mangahouhou rd. Go past the main house and the shed, and it is at the end of the road! It is a great place and is fully self contained.
Our farm is secluded, yet only 8 minutes from town. You and your family can enjoy the best indoor and outdoor activities that the Ruapehu region offers.
As mentioned in the above blurb, the house is fully self contained. The kitchen has a great view of the lake in front.
With permission from the owners (which will include advise about where is best to go), you will be able to walk on our 2000 acre bush covered farm. It is a beautiful property and you will love it. Please be aware though, that August-September is lambing period, and you should be respectful of that.
There is a small lake in front of the property. Be mindful of your children around it.
Feel free to give me a call on my mobile or at the house if you have a question or request. A bit of local knowledge goes a long way!
It is a working farm, so you have to be respectful of our property. The house is located near the sheep yards, and if we are doing some work in there you are welcome to watch. Probably the most important thing to note is to always leave gates as you found them. If they are open, leave them open; and if they are closed, leave them closed.
It is a working farm, so there are many hazards to be aware of. If you are bringing your child, you should know that there is a small lake out the front of the property, so you will need to be careful around that. The farm animals are friendly, but some of them may be a bit wary at first. My advise is to introduce yourself to them first!
I grew up on a farm in the Central North Island of New Zealand. I have a huge affinity for animals, and all things rural. I have also spent a bit of time living in the city. I have worked across Agriculture, Financial Services and Marketing. Right now, I am doing a bit of each.
Have recently returned home to Ohakune after living in Wellington for 3 years.
