What brings customers to this quiet area

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is heralded as the best one-day trek in New Zealand and is regarded as among the top ten single-day treks in the world.

Mount Ruapehu

Mt Ruapehu is located in the Central Plateau of NZ’s North Island in the UNESCO dual-World-Heritage Tongariro National Park, listed for its cultural and geological significance. Along with having the Whanganui National Park nearby, this area is one of New Zealand’s premium outdoor destinations.

The current owners also own Tongariro Suites nearby and manage the cottage from there. However, it will be easy to find a local caretaker/cleaner in the local community.

Any new and more active operators can achieve immediate revenue gain by opening up more availability as the current owners only open up for around 50% of the time in order to manage the business in conjunction with their other accommodation business.

This is just one of its kind and the current owner’s pride. It has just been awarded the prestigious Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Award that includes a substantial publicity prize the new owner can benefit from.

Prior to covid, they had a huge international market between October and April generated by an extensive network of international travel agencies.  Once the borders reopen, the property already has forward bookings for the 2022/2023 summer season in place. The domestic market has supported the property well. The current owner wishes to sell due to ill health and wishes to retire.
