Our cottage is nearly 100 years old with many of it's original features. Right in the historic heart of Hokitika. Hokitika is the perfect spot to stay - all the big attractions are within reach in a day.

This bach will suit people who enjoy old houses and retro style decor. Don't expect a modern house. Relax inside by the fire, BBQ in the garden or watch the sunset at the beach with a glass of wine. Enjoy!

**Please send me a message about yourself and your group at the time of booking - this is important to us***

The galley kitchen is small but functional.

The lounge/dining area is small but cosy with a new woodburner (for use in winter).

  • Loved our stay

    Loved our stay. Lovely cozy home close to everything. Hosts provided everything to make us comfortable and were very easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

    My mo (78) and my two 20something children and I stayed here for three nights and it was just perfect. Never had to move the car while we were in town as everything of interest is walkable. Michelle has handy tips for restaurants and activities written down which was very helpful. My tip would be make reservations if you want to dine out as it's quite busy this time of year in town. Takeaways are good though and the New World is down the street for groceries.

    This place is what every kiwi Bach should be like, cute and quirky. Great location close to beach and town. Very comfortable stay

  • Lovely cottage, with lots of charm

    Lovely cottage, with lots of charm. Can hear the ocean as it breaks on the shoreline. Lots of room for a group, though 1 bathroom could be a problem for more than 4. Walk to town center in 5 mins. Pretty good value for money. We enjoyed our stay. S&D from Melbourne, FL
