The House of Hazel itself is the original property brought by my Nana & Grandad in the 1950’s. I have so many fond memories growing up there as a young girl with my Granded, Geo, and my Nana, Hazel. Chalet Frodo is a new addition to the original property and the entire HOH property, has undergone a complete renovation. The House of Hazel consists of 4 very different accommodation options on an oversized residential section.

Chalet Gandalf is 1 of 2 identical chalets on the rear of the property where you have your own private, stand alone chalet and outdoor patio. We have filled your chalet with everything you will need during your stay and you have an off street park right next door to your chalet, all provided free of charge. Consider it your boutique inspired home away from home, with all essentials and a few extra goodies at your fingertips!

Your chalet comfortably sleeps 2 people with the added option of a sofa bed for your children or guest. The space has been optimally designed for 2 people, with 3 still a comfortable stay. Relax and watch a movie from the full range of SKY TV channels while playing a game of our limited edition Hobbit Monopoly or Shire Strategy set. Enjoy warm sun drenched days or beautiful New Zealand evenings on your own private patio while listening to the birds nest for the night. Whatever the reason for your visit The House of Hazel wants you to feel welcomed, relaxed and comfortable with everything you need while enjoying everything the region has to offer.
