The SpaceThe apartment is set at the end of a 1km private road, passing through farmland & finishing in magnificent NZ native bush. Easy access to Mt Ruapehu, the Tongariro Crossing, The Tongariro & Whanganui National Parks & many outdoor canoeing & cycling activities. Completely self-contained with queen-sized bed, bathroom & kitchenette. Our Wifi is free & suitable for most travellers needs but is not good for downloading movies, streaming or fast business transactions. Guest AccessWashing machine & dryer available for use in the main house. Sixty acres of native bush with marked routes to stunning views of Mount Ruapehu & the rainforest. Native bird watching at your door. If guests find the internet access in the lodge not strong enough for their needs they're most welcome to come to the house & use our slightly stronger network. Being rural, it still isn't as strong as we'd like but we carry out all our business transactions with ease, if not speed! It's a small compromise for being in such a beautiful location. Interaction with GuestsThe apartment is 50 meters from the main house. Guests can be completely alone & see no one at all if they choose, or they can join in with trapping of pests in the bush, working with the sheep, feeding the chickens etc. whenever we're doing it! The NeighborhoodTo the front of us are sheep & beef farms owned & managed by horse lovers & passionate farmers. Surrounding us is 400 acres of prime New Zealand native rainforest "of National Conservation Importance" that is full of wonderful native birds, tracks & stunning views of Mt Ruapehu & surrounds. Getting AroundThe bus shuttle for the Tongariro Crossing will come past our gate if booked in advance by me. You do have to leave earlier for this though. Otherwise it leaves from town (10 minutes drive away) at 3 different times each morning when weather permits. Other national buses & the train station is 9km away. It is beneficial to have your own car though. Other Things to NoteWe have two lovely dogs. Siren, an old, quiet german shepherd dog who does like to go & say hello to guests with a gentle sniff when they first arrive. After that she goes back to sleep & will ignore you. Jimi, the bearded collie cross, will smile at you & wag his tail in delight when you arrive. He's not allowed to jump up give you kisses but he has been known to try if we're not around. After his first meeting you, he'll just stay at the house.

The SpaceIn 1941 the Waimarino District Health Board built a nurses home in Raetihi to accommodate the staff of the Waimarino Hospital. The hospital had opened in 1922 back when Raetihi was a thriving timber town and the Raetihi-Pipiriki road was busy with horses and bullocks carting logs. The Waimarino hospital was a an important place employing three full time doctors, plenty of nurses and a full time gardener. With its perfectly manicured gardens and huge oak trees, the hospital stood proudly overlooking the town and had arguably the best views of Mt Ruapehu. In the early years, farmers from valleys such as the Mangapurua on the Whanganui River (and home of the Bridge to Nowhere) would travel over 50km on foot or by horseback to have their logging wounds tended to. The hospital even had a maternity wing where women would ride a horse for two days to give birth here. But as the trees were felled and forestry diminished so did Raetihi’s population. During the great depression, farmers walked off their land. Some of the service stores on Raetihi’s main street were affected and over a period of time almost all 11 timber mills were closed. Later, rural hospitals were closed and facilities, as well as staff, were moved to New Zealand’s main cities. The nurses home was bought by one of the Doctors during which time the current owner Sandy Waters (aged 9 at the time) stayed here. Seventeen years later Sandy bought the Old Nurses Home and has been renovating and running it as guest accommodation ever since. Guest AccessSet within 5 acres of park-like grounds, The Old Nurses Home is situated 1km from Raetihi’s historic main street with shops, café’s, a museum and NZ’s oldest Theatre. We are 30 minutes from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing (transport departs daily), Bridge to Nowhere jet boat tours, and Mt Ruapehu's Turoa ski area. We are the start and finishing point for the Whanganui River canoe journeys. Several mountain bike trails are just a short drive or shuttle service away. Facilities include a large, sunny, north facing kitchen/lounge which opens onto an extensive outdoor entertainment area with a big open fire, BBQ, wood fired pizza oven and magnificent views of Mt Ruapehu. Seperate male/female bathrooms each have three toilets and three showers, plus there’s a laundry, a drying room and secure mountain bike storage. In rooms we provide a full bedding including white fluffy towels. During winter we operate a European style central heating system plus the lounge has a fireplace (wood supplied), 50” plasma TV, SKY (with sports channels), DVD player and a stereo. Outside we have a kid’s playground, trampoline, mini-petanque, a pet goat, a miniature horse, The Snowy Train and a bouncy castle (weather permitting). There is an outside spa pool surrounded by rocks and palm trees with mountain views. We have plenty of off-street car parking. Interaction with GuestsWe live onsite and will be available to answer question from 8am until 10pm. The NeighborhoodEstablished in 1893, Raetihi's wide main street and historic buildings reflect the pioneering history of this former timber town. It is the closest town to the Mangapurua mountain bike track which leads to the Bridge to Nowhere, the starting point for the iconic Whanganui River Road journey and the finishing point for the 3-5 day Whanganui River canoe journey (Pipiriki 26km west of Raetihi). Raetihi is also home to the "Theatre Royal" which is rumoured to be the oldest theatre in the Southern Hemisphere. The Theatre Royal housed the film crew for the River Queen movie while they filmed key scenes on and around the Whanganui River and Whanganui National Park. Located on State Highway 4, Raetihi is home to a Ratana church and is close to the Mangawhero and Manganui a te Ao rivers, both well known for trout fishing. The Maori name ‘Raetihi’ translates to ‘prominent summit’. Getting AroundYou can take a NakedBus or InterCity to Raetihi. We will pick you up from the bus stop (less than 1km). Or take the Northern Explorer Train to Ohakune and we'll meet you at the train station.
