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

Trek across a volcanic landscape of dramatic landscapes

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.

Don’t pass up on this opportunity to secure this lifestyle block with a steady income and consistent performer, but still with potential for growth.

The current owners are wishing to take it easy now and run the property as a lifestyle business and not maximizing the full revenue potential as they are preparing for retirement.

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.

Any new and more active operators can achieve immediate revenue gain by opening up more availability.

This is a superb Motel Business opportunity that is hard to beat, register now and then call me to arrange your viewing – tomorrow!

I am also selling the award winning Nightsky Cottage with the same owners. Please CLICK HERE for the details.

Opportunity to buy both – optional! – For $ 2,629,000 plus GST (If any)
