Description

  • Come ‘home’ and have your own private party by the brazier (we will haveit all set up for you).
  • Close to beautiful Lake Kaniere and the stunning Hokitika Gorge.
  • Situated on the new West Coast Wilderness Cycle Trail (free use of mountain bikes).

We have totally refurbished our ‘guest accommodation’. The Nest at Hurunui Jacks is a cosy little haven. It is ideally suited to two people, however, there is a separate bedroom with single bed, so it is able to accommodate three. It is situated close, but separate to, our house, we promise to leave you in complete peace and idleness! There is no cell phone coverage, but we do provide free wi-fi.

For stays of three days or more included will be a bottle of NZ wine..a red, Chardonnay or Sauvignon. Feel free to explore our property, surrounded by National Park and Dept. of Conservation, take a walk through the bush and down to the river and breathe in the peace of it all. Feed the rainbow trout in our lake and watch them jump right out of the water on a good day!

We are approx. 12km inland from Hokitika, and 5km from stunning Lake Kaniere. Perfect afternoon/day trip from Hurunui Jacks…Lake Kaniere, the amazing Dorothy Falls, and the breath taking Hokitika Gorge. Then cruise into Hokitika, have fish and chips or pizza by the beach maybe, go driftwood hunting, check out the arty shops, the West Coast Wine Company. Come ‘home’ and have your own private party by the brazier (we will have it all set up for you) at the end of the evening.

The West Coast Wilderness Trail (part of the New Zealand wide cycle trail) is on our doorstep. We have mountain bikes available for you to use.

Included is everything you need to prepare breakfast - our own free range eggs/Vogels bread (for you to toast) & butter/home made preserves/muesli/Greek yogurt/fresh fruit/tea/hot chocolate and real coffee for you to enjoy.

We may have other guests on site by the river (we have a glamping tent also) so at times there may be some restrictions on our bush walk to ensure all guests have total privacy.

Live like a local for a little while and experience the real West Coast!

Please note, we have no cell coverage at home.

Special conditions: Not really suitable for children, we are surrounded by water. Sorry, no pets allowed. Smoking outside only. Does sleep three, but ideally suited to couples or two singles.
