Rural, peaceful setting yet close to town and the area attractions.

Great place to base yourself for hiking, kayaking, boating, swimming, surfing or just relaxing and enjoying the peace.

Open planned hut, very cosy queen bed, wood burning fire, living area, shower and toilet.

The hut itself only has tea making facilities but we do have our Brew Room kitchen with 2 hobs, a fridge and a BBQ close by.

Feel free to wander around the gardens and pockets of bush on the property.

If the weather is nice we are happy to set you up with some chairs and a bonfire in the fire pit!

We live on site, our house is about 50 meters away so you have plenty of privacy.

We love to give information and suggestions about the area.

If you're lucky you might get to taste the home brew!

We are 20 mins from the township of Hokitika, in a rural setting under the southern alps.

5 minutes to Lake Kaniere scenic reserve.

10 minutes to Dorothy Falls.

20 minutes to Hokitika Town.

20 Minutes to Hokitika Gorge.

1 1/2 hrs from Punakaiki

2 hours from Franz Joseph Glacier.

This is the West Coast so there are sandflies, mosquitoes and other interesting, beautiful and annoying bugs so come prepared!

There is free WIFI in the hut and near the kitchen.

    The Grassy Flat Hut is an immaculate little cottage - it's so tastefully decorated and furnished with lovely details and with a wonderful attention to details incl. mozzie screen on the porch etc. Location is great, only a short drive from Hokitika and lots of local sights. The property is also very private with a wonderful garden and a stunning view of mountains and grazing sheep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had the most delicious organic bread baked by our host!
