  • Right in the heart of Hokitika, 100m to the beach. Spectacular sunsets!
  • A beachy, vintage/retro vibe stocked with books & games. Great for the family.
  • Fully fenced, large backyard. An old house with many quirks and interesting features

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!

    Great location just at the quiet end of the small township and near the beach. A spacious and comfortable house, kept in good order. Perhaps the accessability of the lamps could be improved i.e. for reading in bed and sitting at the lounge table....but not everyone needs that also.
