The room is luminous and has direct access to the living area, the earth wall has colorful bottles inserted in it giving an unique atmosphere. While sharing the rest of the house with us, we will make you feel home and do our best for you to have the most enjoyable stay.

The space
The location is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the Tongariro National Park (25 mn drive to Mount Ruapehu and 30 minutes to the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing). We live close to nature and we have designed our house to be unique, creative and welcoming. We are within walking distance to a forest reserve with a beautiful lagoon walk along the Whakapapa river famous for trout fishing and its pristine environment. Owhango is a getaway to the 42 traverse in the Tongariro Forest which is part of the Te Araroa trail and a must for mountain biking.

Nous sommes une famille de francais installée en Nouvelle Zélande depuis 14 ans maintenant, nos passions: l'art, le verre, la nature, le jardin (biologique!), les voyages et la rencontre des autres et differentes cultures. Nous avons 2 petites filles de 11 et 9ans, Anouk et Janette, qui apprécient aussi l'accueil des voyageurs, et en particulier les enfants! I am originally from France. I have travelled the world following my passion for glass blowing and art in general and have settled in New Zealand 14 years ago, where I met my husband Jerome (French too!). We have two lovely girls called Anouk (11) and Janette (9) . We have a passion for travelling in adventurous ways and meeting people from different cultures. We love good real food straight from the garden grown organically and passionately by us. Jerome loves Nature and work with the Department of Conservation to rehabilitate the kiwi population in our native forest which comes right to the edge of Owhango. This is where we built our eco-house 3 years ago and have designed it to be unique, creative and welcoming.
