Welcome to the Ti Kouka House! This warm, serene, spacious home is located in a quiet, friendly Ohakune neighborhood with stunning views of Mount Ruapehu.

Like the local cabbage palm that it’s named after, this home is beautiful and accommodating in both the winter and summer months. In the warmer months, you’ll love exploring the bush trails and stunning mountain biking paths. In the colder months, Ti Kouka House is close to two local ski resorts.

The space
“All the comforts you need. Home away from home. “ - Lee-Ann, Jul 2020

This listing is for a 2-guest configuration of the house. You’ll have access to the rooms and amenities shown in the photos and listed below. There will be locked access to the other bedrooms and amenities of the house.

The living and dining areas are wide open and spacious in the Ti Kouka House. Two sofas face one another and create a comfy spot for lounging. There’s also a wood-burning fireplace that’s oh-so-cozy in the colder months.

Sliding glass doors open wide to the sun-drenched deck. Outside on the deck is a large dining table. When it’s warm, this is a great place to sip your morning coffee and read the paper. Or host an alfresco dinner underneath the stars. There’s a soothing hot tub out here too — great for soaking sore muscles after a long day on the trails.

In the kitchen, bold red accents add style to the efficient space. Stainless steel appliances include a range, vent hood, dishwasher, and refrigerator. There’s also a Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, and toaster. Nearby, the laundry room is equipped with a washer, dryer, and a heated drying cupboard.

The master suite features a king-size bed and a flat screen Smart TV. The ensuite master bathroom has a step-in shower and white marble vanity.

Ti Kouka House is the perfect home base for your next trip to Ohakune. Whether you’re coming for the skiing or the sunshine— or maybe a little bit of both— you’ll be in the perfect spot to soak it all in. Tongariro National Park and two popular ski resorts are a short drive from the home. Some of our personal favorite activities are:

The Mangawhero River walk - a beautiful track along a clear mountain stream
Tongariro Crossing - a world famous bucket list activity (requires decent level of fitness)
Old Coach Road - this stunning old rail link is a popular bike path that can also be walked.

For a night out, you can walk to The Junction— a local hub featuring many delicious restaurants and cafes. We especially recommend:

The Powderkeg Restaurant & Bar - a 10min walk from our Ti Kouka House, the Powderkeg is a central gathering place great for drinks and food from breakfast to sunset dinners.
The Blind Finch - this food-to-go option has amazing gourmet burgers as well as lovely french pastries.
Mountain Rocks - our favorite coffee place with a great menu (and great coffee of course!)
EAT Takeaway Diner - The owner Dawn has a great vegetarian menu with fresh organic produce.

“The location is great, we walked to dinner at a great restaurant the first night, and the next day went hiking from the trailheads just a short drive away. Book with confidence, this house and these hosts are supreme. “ - Marina, Jan 2018
