  • This property is a basic bach but just what we wanted

    This property is a basic bach but just what we wanted. Clean, tidy, comfortable, snug and recently refurbished. The location was just as we expected. Quite magic. Feeding the eels and meeting Boofhead (chief eel) was just one highlight. Meeting Ray (not an eel) and talking about rocks was another highlight. My only "complaint" is that the bed was so comfortable that we slept in each morning. Thank you Col and Ray. Your hospitality was wonderful. Tina and Tim

    Second trip back - brought family this time. Just love it - watching the sun go down around by the bonfire is always such a highlight. Thank you for having us again!

    Fantastic location, so close to the sea with views from the kitchen window. Only a few minutes drive into Hokitika, super-handy. I chose it because we could bring our dog which was a real treat. Great size for two ( it was me and my 13 year old daughter). Separate bedroom great. Very cute bach that has everything you need. Lovely couple who gave us our space but it was great to bump into them on the property and have a chat. Highly recommend!
