Smithies Bach Punakaiki

 Convenience. . . close to the beach, river, and tavern/restaurant. I was expected to be on the beach with oceanview and was a little disappointed, however the quiet, peacefulness and ambience of the typical kiwi bach made up for it. I would highly recommend The Bach to family and friends. Cheers! 

Okuru 81 Comfortable beach house

 Fantastic location right next to the beach and the rainforest. House is well-maintained, roomy and keeps the sandflies out effectively! 

Modern self contained two bedroom cottage

 Amberlea cottage was a very pleasant surprise. We were all very impressed when we arrived. and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Next time I'm back in Hokitika I won't be staying anywhere else! 

Waterfront Lake Brunner

 The best location on the waterfront with views. A very attractive house ,well equipped and modern. I would stay here again 

Time To Relax in Paradise

 Great location, walking distance to the Little Wanganui River, short drive to some impressive locations. Bach is really comfortable, well equipped, plenty of grass and loved the deck. Home away from home :) 

Revell Street House.

 We really enjoyed our stay! This property is convenient to spots like the beach, downtown, and the glow worm dell, and it was a great place for my family to stay while we were in Hokitika.
