Although the cottage does not have a view of the beach,it is very close to the beach and whitebait creek which sometimes runs in front of the property, depending on the beach conditions. ON THE SAME PROPERTY AS ON THE BEACH -PENGUINS RETREAT. AND OCEANSIDE About 30 metres from the cottage we have made a stone path that leads to a private seating area specifically for the cottage guests- ideal place to watch the waves and the sunset. Located 3 kms North of Hokitika, the greenstone capital of New Zealand and the home of the Wildfoods Festival. Own garden area. Have a bonfire on the beach at sunset and watch the many different birds travelling to their nightly roosts. Surfcasting, stone fossicking . Let the sound of the waves send you to sleep. Hokitika is centrally located on the West Coast - 20 minutes to Lake Kaniere and Lake Mahinapua. Two hours to Franz Josef glacier. One and half hours to Punakaiki. 40 minutes to Shantytown.and Black Water rafting, to name just a few experiences you can have from here.

    We loved our time at Whitebait Cottage - long walks on the beach in the morning, and champagne in the evening watching the sunset. It's a basic little bach but had everything we needed and we felt very comfortable and very much at home.

  • Great property a typical kiwi bach

    Great property a typical kiwi bach. Everything that we needed warm and dry. Great space for the dog and nice little touches like body wash for our use. Would definitely stay again. Slept like a baby to the sound of the waves a great stay!
