Step back in time in our charming 1950's cottage, filled with things from a simpler era, such as a record player with classic vinyl.

Enjoy soaking and star-gazing in the gorgeous outdoor fire-bath or in the free natural Hot-springs just 10 minutes away.

Conveniently located on main highway between Hokitika and Franz Josef Glacier (50 mins each way) for easy day trips.

Stunning rural/bush/mountain views.

Heaps of books, board games, puzzles, authentic memorabilia and vintage dress-ups for those wet West Coast days.

Kid-friendly - cot, highchair, pram, toys, swings and bikes.

This is an old cottage with it's own quirks, such as a bathroom just outside, through the laundry. It is for those who want an historic experience, not an empty motel-like space.

Escape the modern world - no Wi-fi, no cell phone coverage.

2 kms from Hari Hari village, in an area of great hiking, fishing, hunting, lake swimming and boating.

Natural Hot Springs in the riverbed just 10 minutes away - one of the Coast's best kept secrets.

Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live next door but will respect your privacy.

Teapot Cottage is on the same acre property as our other (completely different and off-grid) Bookabach, 'Wildside Lodge'.

    Teapot Cottage is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed - a charming cottage that all our family loved. The decor has been put together so thoughtfully and the gardens and surrounding nature made it a relaxing place to stay. Wish we had been able to stay longer relaxing at the cottage and also exploring Hari Hari and the surrounding area. Would love to return for another holiday.

    It's the perfect place to get away from the craziness of regular life and just turn off and relax. Close enough to popular attractions like the glaciers but far enough away to do as little as you want and feel good about it. The cottage is super cute, cosy, inviting - ideal, really. LP's to play, loads of boardgames, jigsaw puzzles, and books to read. We loved the main bed (so comfy!), and our daughter loved the bunk bed in the second bedroom. Would stay again!
