Alpine Habitats: A cabin stay along Alpine Way is possibly about as appealing as it gets doesn't it? It is out the way of the snowsport bustle of Jindabyne, but close enough to restaurants and shops. It is a 5 minute drive to the SkiTube and a 20 minute drive to Thredbo, but avoids those pricey ski resort accommodations. Kangaroos...

I live here and still engoy the kangaroos every day too. Our interior design is deliberately minimalist and was aimed to target the market who are over the smokey timber cabin style accommodation that abounds in the Snowy Mountains. Maybe a little too spartan for some people but we are aiming at a few improvements with new rugs and floor...

We stayed at the Alpine Habitats for 3 nights. We were very pleased with the space, comfort and cleanliness. They are in a convenient, central location for going to Thredbo, Jindabyne or Charlotte's Pass. The only down-side we experience was a lack of cooking equipment. We cooked all 3 nights, and there were a few needed items missing. It would...

We have stayed here twice for two different weddings and love the place. First wedding was held in the central grounds in November 2010 where all the apartments were booked out. We had a great time. We stayed in unit 4 that was a double and twin with bathroom, living and kitchen. The suspended concrete flooring kept it cool with...

Just confirming that all units definitely have thir own continuous hot water systems. Tip for guests (included in our handy hints sheet) - use the hot water tap only and set the shower water temperature with the control pad in the bathroom. As we run on tank water with pumps, our lower water pressure and flow rates mean that the...

Stayed here for three nights in September as they had a discounted rate $300 per night and it was some of the newest accommodation in Jindy. Our habitat was good, but felt quite bare in terms of little furniture and very open. It was clean, but could do with a decent scrub from top to bottom! The Ethanol heater is...

We booked 2 cabins for 2 family groups of differing ages. We found the location, natural beauty and facilities were excellent.We cannot recommend this place highly enough, clean, spacious and well equipped.We also got 3 nights for the price of 2 so felt it was great value. We also thoroughly enjoyed Widl Brumby for lunch, coffee and of course their...

What a pleasant find! The two bedroom cottage with full kitchen, lounge and dining was so lovely to return to after a day on the slopes! Oven, full size fridge, heated concrete floors, drying racks for the wet gloves and skis, plasma, dvd, heated towel racks, a lovely deck over looking a natural bush setting, the kangaroos, the fire place....

Unique in the sense that it's not an apartment in a suburban setting a la Jindabyne; not a resort/hotel; not a lodge - but your own self contained accommodation in a lovely bush setting while still convenient to eating (Distillery-excellent; Crackenback Cottage - too expensive for what's basically good pub food) and shopping. Prices are at the edge of value...

Travelled with another family & had a good time. Lovely bush views from picture windows. Nice & warm and set up for snow visitors with a heated cupboard for wet snow gear. Good little kitchen. Woke to snow outside on first morning. A short walk to Schnapps distillery/cafe and short drive to Jindabyne & Ski Tube. Minor criticisms- for 41/2...

Truly fabulous accommodation and location. The units are beautifully furnished with everything you could need. The design of them is really unique. The views from the picture windows are truly beautiful. The location is superb close to Thredbo and close to the ski tube. It is set in the valley and the views from the units are sensational.

Alpine Habitats are awesomely located in a beautiful part of NSW with snow (during the season) and the alpine region at your doorstep. They emphasise the "eco" aspect of their habitats (building materials, waste management, water usage etc) and this side of things they do well. The habitats however could do with a) some interior design, b) some maintenance (lights,...
