Enjoy a getaway at a rural cottage with modern facilities very close to Raetihi township. Set on 10 acres, this modernised cosy dwelling in a private setting features super-comfortable and stylish furnishings, and contemporary artworks featured in every room. You'll also enjoy a large deck, wood burner, a bathtub and infinity gas hot water (meaning hot showers for everyone!).
Very conveniently located for a ski break at just 35-40 mins drive to the top of either of Mt Ruapehu's ski areas - plus, you get the added bonus of a relaxing holiday in the country. The house is cosy and warm, with the wood burning stove heating up the whole house in no time, while adding a gorgeous ambiance.
This property has been fitted out with everything you need for a comfortable bach stay. Fully equipped kitchen with new appliances. Massive couch and lounging chairs, including two chaise-style loungers, so you can put your feet up after your day's activities.
While a perfect winter base for skiing / boarding, Farm Cottage also offers a relaxing retreat for a summer adventure in the Central Plateau. An amazing north-facing view of the mountain from the top of the property (great place for a summer picnic), lovely on-site walks with a pond, pines and native trees, and animals grazing in the pasture all around.
Mountain biking tracks,stunning hikes (including the world-famous Tongariro Crossing) and trips to the Whanganui River (take a canoe or jet boat to the 'Bridge to Nowhere') all within easy reach.
House trained pets are welcome (please note that our fences are farm wire fences, so they will not keep your animals from wandering - you will need to tie them up if they're kept outside and you're concerned about this).
Board games, books, DVDs, and lots of wine glasses for your use. TV and DVD / Bluray player (note: no Sky/Freeview). Reliable mobile coverage with Spark and Vodafone.
Feel free to ask a question if you have any queries :) We'd love to hear from you!
