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!

The galley kitchen is small but functional.

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

There are electric blankets on most beds. (Please turn them off in the morning)

    This is a cute little house very close to the beach and township, easy walking distance. Great woodburner fire and heaters in every room meant we were toasty warm the whole time.

  • Loved the Crooked Mile Cottage

    Loved the Crooked Mile Cottage. Quirky wee place that suited us fine. Log burner came in very useful. Good proximity to town. Loved the blackboard in hall with tourist attractions and things for the kids to tick off! We’ll hopefully be back.

    We absolutely loved our family time at Crooked Mile Cottage! The location was amazing and convenient to the beach and shopping areas. Perfect! The quirky decor and attention to detail and history amazed me in this little cottage! It was just eclectic and totally gorgeous! Our kids loved the toys, such a great idea to have and made us feel right at home! The beds were so comfy and we slept VERY well! We enjoyed exploring the area and will never forget this amazing time in Hokitika! Thank u!
