With mountain views on three sides, the cottage is 22 km from Hokitika on the road to the stunning Hokitika Gorge. It was built in the 1950's for the farmer's father on a small terrace to keep it high and dry. Beautiful original wooden floors throughout complement the rustic and eclectic decor. Modern renovations are in character and great beds assure a comfortable sleep. The covered deck was built to the sun and allows all weather outdoor living. On a clear night, stars fill the sky. Farm machinery, cows, milk tankers, and cars heading to the Gorge are seen occasionally. The Hokitika Gorge Scenic Reserve is 10 minutes away as is the character filled Kokatahi pub and cafe. Lake Kaniere with hiking and swimming is 20 minutes away. Off the main tourist trail, Camelback Cottage is a great place to relax and unwind.

    Really enjoyed our stay here. Was especially happy with the old farmhouse feel to the cottage. Had everything we needed and the most comfortable beds.

    This is a lovely property set in rural pasture between Hokitika and the Gorge. We didn't receive the key code to access the property which caused a little bit of a problem as phone coverage is patchy in that area but eventually it was sorted out. The house is right by the road and certainly we noticed the traffic, particularly late at night over the weekend, which was a shame as it spoilt the "tranquility" of the property. However we did enjoy our stay.
