Description

  • A lush green valley dotted with ancient trees, mountain streams, spring fed creeks, & friendly cows
  • Well appointed tastefully renovated character cottage
  • All weather indoor/ outdoor living in sheltered garden with abundant birdlife

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. No sandflys or mosquitoes have been seen in the last 2 years. Even the rain is warm. 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.

    We loved staying here! Meals on the deck, the views across the fields to the mountains. Best of all: luxuriating in the bath at night, watching the stars through the doorway, in solar-heated rainwater from the tank. We also appreciated the beautiful &thoughtful use of recycled wood throughout, & the really comfortable beds. In peak holiday season you are aware of the traffic to and from the gorge, morning and late afternoon, but it's a quiet & peaceful place all other times.

  • Absolutely beautiful bach, with enormous views of the surrounding countryside

    Absolutely beautiful bach, with enormous views of the surrounding countryside. We stayed here for Christmas and it was completely perfect, with a fantastic BBQ and lovely deck to enjoy the scenery in the sunshine. Thanks for having us, we loved your handmade pottery and the wood burning stove, and the bath, hope to be back some day!

  • Little far out and middle of nowhere

    Little far out and middle of nowhere. But that made sense. Beautiful drive and proximity to gorge. Quiet and peaceful. Full of great modern amenities and still rustic.
