The property is 2mins from the Arahura River - an important source of pounamu (jade) on the West Coast.
We are only a 5min drive to the beach which is a beautifully wild place filled with amazing driftwood and pebbles - a great place for a bonfire.

We are LGBTQ friendly!

Hokitika is the perfect place to base yourself while exploring the West Coast. All the best attractions are only a short drive away.

There are many easy bush walks close to our house, the closest winds through an old goldmine site dating back to the 1800's.

Take a walk through Hokitika town and see some of the sights mentioned in the Booker Prize winning author, Eleanor Catton's book, The Luminaries.

You really need at least two days in Hokitika to see most of the attractions.

A car is recommended to make the most of sightseeing but Hokitika Scenic Tours can drive you to most attractions.
We are 15mins from the airport.
The Tranz Alpine train comes into Greymouth Station 30 mins drive away.
The West Coast Cycle Trail is nearby.
Christchurch is 3 hours drive away over SH73 through Arthur's Pass.

As we are off-grid, we MUST be careful with our power. We do not have a microwave, air conditioning, dishwasher or electric blankets (we offer hotwater bottles in winter), but our house is very warm. Use of hairdryers is not permitted.
We cook on a woodstove in our kitchen. This also provides all the heating for the house. Water is collected from rainwater on the roof and totally safe to drink. In summer water is in short supply and we need to be careful with water use. We have cellphone coverage but it is not good.
**There is a TV in one room that can be used with Chromecast (it is not able to get satellite channels).**
Guests can not cook here.
The most eco friendly property on the West Coast. All solar powered. Rain water collection. We recycle. All food waste is feed to animals or composted. Go green! Stay with us!

Host

We offer a friendly and warm space that is quite different from a hotel experience. We want guests to feel comfortable and at home in the spaces we have set up. Our listings really appeal to folks who love character homes, enjoy art on the walls and vintage/retro furniture.

We have lived in Hokitika for the past 16 years. We enjoy good music and good food.
We have both traveled extensively.
We absolutely love living here in Hokitika. It has a wonderful community - we are a really eclectic bunch. The scenery is wild and stunning and the history is fascinating.
I'm busy running our farm as well as working. My husband works for an IT company from home (unfortunately he is very busy with his job, so you probably won't meet him). We look forward to meeting our guests and are always happy to help you plan activities here on the West Coast - rain or shine - it is a fantastic place to be.

My #1 top tip when visiting NZ - have travel insurance. If there are any issues with flight delays/road closures etc, you are covered if you can't reach your destination. We are a very small family run business so we can not act as an insurer for you.
