Situated in Runanga village, 7km north of Greymouth. 40km south of

Punakaiki. The village is cental in the area including Greymouth and Hokitika to the south,

Beaches, rivers and mountains everywhere !

Or just sit on the sunny wee porch at the cottage and relax!

Please do not book my cottage if you are expecting double glazing, large screen plasma tv(s), neutral decor, immaculate gardens or manicured lawns!

The house has been thoroughly updated and has all facilities but is almost 75 years old and no amount of money will change that. However It is much loved and is filled with my personal treasures. Thank you.

  • Great location but the property is a little "tired"

    Great location but the property is a little "tired". Location was brilliant so we overlooked some of the property shortfalls. Come prepared with a "camping" mentality and you will be fine. Bring a tablecloth, candles and a good bottle of wine and enjoy the sites and sounds of Greymouth which are spectacular!

  • Awesome wee place in quiet Runanga

    Awesome wee place in quiet Runanga. Lots of great walks in the area to go on or a great place to just sit back and do hardly anything and just enjoy the coast. We took our dog and he loved it. Might be a good idea to take a long rope or something if your dog is prone to wandering off as one part isnt fenced in but the rest of the property is ideal. Really great place to stay and thanks heaps for having us Joss!
