Description

  • Fabulous Beachfront Property with private access to the beach
  • Only 5 minutes walk from centre of Hokitika, either down the beach or along the road
  • Perfect location for Lake Kaniere, Hokitika Gorge, Lake Mahniapua and gateway to the Glaciers

Located along the stunning and rugged West Coast of New Zealand's South Island, Drifting Sands is the perfect beachfront bach with that cozy home away from home feel.

The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with open plan kitchen, lounge and dining. This sleeps nine people.

A fourth room, our Beach Hut is situated in the garden leading directly to the beach and can sleep a further five people.



The 1930's house has a roaring Pioneer fireplace in the lounge with Marley wireless hi-fi and board games to keep family and friends entertained. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to cook up a tasty meal or two.

If you wander through the back garden, you will find yourself on the beach, which is ideal for fishing, paddling, or just enjoying a stroll taking in the wild ocean, the view and the expanse of beach as far as the eye can see. We are so fortunate to enjoy such gorgeous sunsets with a bonfire while the sun goes down. Don't forget to keep your eye out for some jade stone along the way!

Special conditions: The property is not designed for pets and not fully fenced however upon request we may accept well behaved quiet pets.

  • Great place to spend Christmas with extended family

    Great place to spend Christmas with extended family. Loads of space, good facilities and direct beach access was awesome. Would always make this my first choice of accommodation on the West Coast.

    Drifting sands is a wonderful place to stay, so close to the beach and lots of beds for a big group. The house is very warm and welcoming and our group thoroughly enjoyed it. We will be back!
