Tau Studio is a 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 cafes, restaurants and shops.

The winter offers fantastic skiing and snowboarding, and summer offers lots of walks, mountain biking and fishing.

The space
The Studio is very cosy and warm as its fully insulated to the highest standards with a fantastic wood burner for those colder nights.
We have spent a lot of time and money making everything just right and trying to create a luxurious space.
Tau Studio was built by a local talented craftsman and he has added some gorgeous woodwork features.
We hope you enjoy your stay.

Where you’ll be

Rangataua, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

Rangataua is a very peaceful, rural area and is only 5 minutes to town. It feels like you are in the country but really everything is very handy.
There are some great walks and mountain bike rides in the Rangataua Forest just over the railway line. There is also plenty more closer to town.
There is horse riding just down the road.
Plus the start of the mountain road for skiing is only 5 minutes away also.

I live with my partner, of 28 years , Mike and together we have two adult children. Our son has his own home in Wellington and our daughter and her black Labrador are flatting in Wellington. We love to travel and have been many places together, and with our children over the years. Asia has been our main destination but also the Pacific Islands, Mexico, Canada, Hawaii and in our younger days Europe, UK, and Africa. We also love to ski and that is why we have a holiday home in the Ruapehu area of the North Island NZ. We love the area and want to share it with others. It is also a fantastic place in summer with tramping, mountain biking and great fishing.
