Step back in time in our charming 1930's built cottage, filled with things from a simpler era.

Enjoy a soak in our gorgeous garden fire-bath or in the natural hot springs nearby.

Spin some classic vinyl on the record player or indulge your imagination in our dress-up box.

Heaps of books, board games, puzzles and memorabilia to look at on those wet West Coast days.

Kid-friendly - cot, highchair, pram, potty, toys, swings and sandpit.

Bicycles for all ages.

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 a step-back-in-time experience, not an empty motel-like space.

2 kms from Hari Hari village, in an area of great tramping, fishing, hunting (including weekly bow-hunters club), lake swimming and boating.

Conveniently located between Hokitika and Franz Josef Glacier (45 mins each way) for easy day trips.

Natural Hot Springs just 8 minutes away - one of the Coast's best kept secrets.

Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live next door.

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

    A lovely olden day theme cottage took us back in time to experience the wonderful life of the past. We had so much fun dressing up and listening to old records. The property was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Close to great fishing spots. Highly recommended

  • This place is lovely - perfect setting in a beautiful location

    This place is lovely - perfect setting in a beautiful location. The nearby natural hot springs are worth checking out. This is the type of place to stay if you are interested in warmth, character and cosiness - the perfect antidote to many of the other sparse accommodations that are dotted around the place. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip to this paradise!
