Take a moment to orient yourself so that you choose the best location for your needs. Click on the INFO & MAP link to clearly see the layout of the Ruapehu Region. Ohakune is the main centre catering for visitors to Mt Ruapehu with restaurants, cafes, supermarket, gift shops and plenty of activities! While the town has the "Junction", "Town" and "Village", these are only a couple of kilometres apart so we're not talking great distances here, but taking a moment to select the right location for you can mean the difference between having to drive or having the ability to walk to and from some of the places and activities you might like to enjoy.
Ohakune is divided into three sections; The JUNCTION, is closest to the beginning of the mountain road and enjoys a good night-life. The TOWN is the heart and has great access to the shops, many restaurants and cafes. The VILLAGE is home to several ski chalets with great mountain views. Quiet, park-like setting. Good for families.
And for something different, check out HOROPITO for privacy and perfect placement to the slopes as it is the same driving time to both Turoa and Whakapapa ski-fields from Horopito.
LINEN - Most chalets have duvets, mattress protectors, pillows and pillow protectors. This means that you will need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and towels, however, you may prefer to hire these.
NO SMOKING - No smoking is permitted in any of the chalets.
PETS - As a rule, pets are prohibited from all chalets, however, we have a handful of chalet owners who adore pets and will, in some circumstances, make an allowance for a pet family member. Please telephone Ruapehu Chalet Rentals 06-385-8149 and ask about this.
2 NIGHT MINIMUM - A 2x night minimum stay applies throughout the year.
*Each year, the special Mardi-Gras weekend is usually sold-out well in advance. The Mardi Gras weekend has a 3 x night minimum.
