National Park Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Escape the city - Haven is an awesome place for you, and your kids, to experience a wicked range of outdoor activities. 20 minutes to Whakapapa ski field.

Clean, tidy and cosy, sleeps 5. Duvets and pillows provided. The bathroom is in an adjacent wash-house. The kitchenette has double hotplates, a microwave, fridge, and Zip water heater, along with crockery, cutlery and cooking gear.

Come and make the most of the "Adventure Plateau", with Haven Cottage as your base.

Haven Cottage is nestled between the world heritage Tongariro National Park, Tongariro Forest Park, and Raurimu Scenic Reserve, and only a stones throw away from the Whanganui National Park, Haven offers an awesome base for your Central Plateau adventures.

Raurimu is home to the world famous Raurimu Spiral (you can watch the trains on the 2nd level from the front porch), and is only 20 mins to Whakapapa ski field, 40 mins to Turoa ski field, and about 20 mins to the nationally renowned Taumarunui Golf Course.

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is rated the best one day trek in New Zealand, and listed by many as one of the top-ten day treks in the world. Haven Cottage is the perfect base for the Crossing, and Plateau Shuttles can pick you up in the morning, transport you to the start of the track, and pick you up at the other end.

But wait, there's more (sorry, no Ginsu knives), Central Plateau offers the best mountain biking in the North Island (42nd Traverse, Fishers Track, John MacDonald Loop), skiing, snow boarding, mountain climbing, hot pools (Tokaanu), climbing wall, trout fishing, horse riding, quad biking, paintball, tramping, kayaking, rafting, scenic flights, natural history, hiking, canoeing, easy day walks, art and crafts, restaurants, pubs, Lord of the Rings filming locations, Waiouru Army Museum, Tongariro Crossing, summit climbs, bird watching, ... it's brilliant.

Special conditions:

Two night minimum stay.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

A cute little cottage, very affordable, easy to heat, would recommend to all on a budget! Suited our needs for a place to sleep and recuperate after boarding all day. Would definitely stay again.

Great Budget accommodation and easy to warm.

  • 3 of 5

Great Budget accommodation and easy to warm. Very close to the snow and even though it was basic it had everything you needed for a couple of days at the snow. We will be using it again.
