PS. This property is 50Km North of Haast NOT Okuru/ Haast and is more suited to Kiwis wanting a base while fishing/ hunting/ diving / jetboating etc

Our place is compact but cosy and has everything you need (except linen)

Lake Paringa is beautiful and serene.

It is an area you can totally relax in and enjoy peace and quiet with no cell phones or internet.

If fishing is your interest, the lake has a plentiful supply of brown trout and quinnat salmon as early as November some years through to the better months of February and March.

Local sea fishing will provide you with mussels, paua, kina, crayfish, blue cod and hapuka depending on your kai moana gathering skills and capabilities.

Whitebait season is from Sept 1 - Nov 14 and there are a couple of handyish spots to try your luck at a bit of pot netting.

Red deer hunting is literally at your door step and stags can sometimes be heard roaring from the house in April.

Local rivers are a jetboaters dream and there are plenty of tracks between the Glaciers and Haast for day trips of discovery.

The beaches of South Westland have a beauty all of their own and seals, dolphins and penguins can be seen on a few of these secluded spots I will happily give you directions to.

Bruce Bay is only 15 minutes drive and rated one of NZ's top 10 loved beaches.

3kms north is the South Westland Salmon Farm and cafe which is well worth a visit and a meal.

Fox Glacier is 70kms north and Haast is 50kms south of Lake Paringa.

Both small towns provide friendly locals, good dining, small general stores, bars, post office and fuel along with local activities ranging from skydiving to bush walks.

As mentioned above: There is NO cellphone reception or internet ... but this is a good thing :O)
