Misty Mountain Hut-Ruapehu is located in the sleepy little village of Rangataua, 5 minutes distance to Mountain road going up to the Turoa skifield. The 1 bedroom plus loft colonial villa has a beautiful view of the mountain. The recent renovation has retained the old world charm and Bohemian flair, unlimited wifi and a new firebox with plenty of firewood to ensure you are warm in winter. My favourite time here is summer for amazing walks/cycling up mountains to enjoy majestic views.
“The place is quaint and very intimate. We enjoyed every corner of the house. We definitely didn’t mind the early winter sunsets as we always looked forward to going home and cooking our meals in this little lovely abode. We kept the fire place and jazz music going then had a relaxing dip in the tub after our ski sessions. Every morning was a treat as well as we sat on the leather seats fronting the fire place sipping our coffee. The lounge and tub were definitely our faves. Good value for your money.”
Tau Studio is a brand new boutique style chalet with a modern stylish decor and a hint of luxury. Everything is provided including top quality linen. It is very spacious but also has a lovely cosy, warm feel. Perfect for couples. It is based in the lovely quiet village of Rangataua which is only a 5 minute drive to Ohakune township where there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. The winter offers fantastic skiing , and the summer offers lots of walks, mountain biking and fishing.
“Diana's place is awesome!!! It's clean, stylish and very cosy. It was perfect for our stay and the warm fireplace made for a very cosy place to come home after long cold days on the slopes at Whakapapa. All the facilities and amenities in Tau Studio were lovely! It had everything we could have ever needed, from cooking, to cleaning, to keeping warm, those hot water bottles sure were appreciated!! Overall, this place was beautiful to stay in, we definitely will be coming back when we get the chance!!”
Self-contained little basic cosy bungalow cabin. This cabin offers spectacular views of Mt Ruapehu from the comfort of the sofa or bed. There's horses in the paddock next to us, as well as sheep, so you can get in touch with nature and relax. Base yourself here for your Ruapehu ski trip, do the Tongariro Crossing, one of the world's best day hikes, rent a bike and cycle the Old Coach Road, or use this cabin to rest and relax.
“If you want a true get away, this is the place to stay. We stayed for one night only, but the star gazing and views of mt ruapehu made it well worth. Excellent communication with Lucy and easy check in. I 100% recommend this truly cosy cabin”
