Description

Unwind in our up-cycled tiny-house, uniquely crafted from native and recycled materials.

Soak under the stars by lighting a fire under the outdoor bath or visiting local hot-springs in riverbed.

Enjoy outdoor living on the large deck or by the campfire/bbq.

Or stay in next to the cosy pot-belly fire which heats the water for the large-enough-for-two shower and shower by candlelight (wood and candles provided).

In the morning open french doors for great views from the handcrafted bed.

Take a tour round the rest of our homestead and sample our home produce to have a taste of "the good life" (free-range eggs, farm fresh milk and home-kill butchery also locally available).

Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live on-site (40 metres away) but will respect your privacy.

Awarded 2014 Bookabach Bronze Piwa for Best Quirky Property.



Rural location on SH6, 2 minutes from Hari Hari village. An area of great bush-walking (check out Hari hari Coastal Walkway); wild and lonely driftwood covered beaches for building bonfires; renowned trout fishing streams; whitebaiting; surf-casting; excellent hunting and local bow-hunters club; lake swimming and boating; whitewater rivers; bird watching and isolated seal colony; plus free natural hot-springs just a 10 minute drive and a 2 minute walk away (one of the West Coast's best kept secrets).

Conveniently situated to take day trips exploring up and down the Coast - 45 minutes to Franz Joseph Glacier (glacier tours, sky-diving, kayaking, horse-trekking, kiwi watching, hot pools) and 45 minutes to Hokitika (greenstone, glass-blowing, kiwi house, tree-top walkway).
