Enjoy experiencing the wild and scenic untouched beauty of the West Coast all from the comfort of a warm comfortable home perched above Whitehorse Bay. You'll soon forget the rest of the world exists... and you may not wish to leave.
Waituhi (glowing waters) is located at the very start of the famous Coast Road - this stunning drive is an attraction on its own, however also in the area are numerous other attractions like the Pororari River Walk, The Truman Track, Punakaiki Blowholes (15 mins drive), cave rafting and glow worm caves at Underworld Adventures in Charleston or the historic bridge and caves at Fox River. Or you may just want to sit on the deck and watch the waves rolling in.
Located down a private access road, Waituhi shares this bay with just one other home.
Rainforests grow from the mountains of Paparoa National Park all the way to the beach on your doorstep. Native birds are abundant in the forest surrounding the house and on the beach. Little Blue Penguins reside nearby.
Sandflies are plentiful on the West Coast, however, screens are fitted to the windows for your comfort.

Water is drawn from a local waterfall and is not treated - you may wish to bring bottled water... I always drink straight from the tap.
