Look no further if you like a bit of fun and adventure in your accommodation. These 2 converted rail carriages are definitely different!
Originally built by N.Z Rail in the 1940's when money didn't seem to come into the equation and they certainly built rail carriages solid. Lots of native timber including a Kauri tongue and groove ceiling. There's the original flip over seats at the dining table. While endeavoring to maintain all the original charm and character there are still all the modern conveniences you require in a self contained chalet. Including A/C heating and seperate toilet/shower
The large lounge which is open planned through to the kitchenette dinning area has a TV, two couches and coffee tables, as well as the original single seats that the train guards used to use. Sleeping arrangements are: A master double bedroom at the far end. A set of original bunks in the next room. There are two double sofa sleepers in the lounge- in effect giving you 3 individual sleeping areas. We supply linen & towels for the double bedroom but please bring your own bedding and towels for the sofa sleepers.
The carriages are only 3 minutes walk to the 'Junction' bars, restaurants and ski shops for those that require further diversion.
Ideal for two or three people who want their own space and don't require a lot of other facilities. So if you expect to be on the skifields all day then checking out the restaurants or bars just 300 meters away or are happy tucked up with a good book, these cabins will suit you.
2 of these cabins have a double bed and a single and one can sleep four in a double mezzanine bunk. All centrally heated. We supply pillows and bottom sheet but we ask you to supply your own blankets.
Under the Kowhai tree we have two studio units with ensuite bathrooms. They have a queen size bed with elec blankets and fold-out double couch. Full linen and towels are supplied along with all the other modern conveinences.
You have use of the mainlodge facilities until 10pm so you have access to the lounge, kitchen, spa, drying room and free internet. These units have fridges, lcd tvs and are toasty warm with central heating.
