Crooked Mile Cottage - CUTE & COSY BY THE SEA
In the heart of Hokitika. 1min to the beach and river. 5mins walk to bars, restaurants and shops. An old, historic little cottage full of character and charm. A typical Kiwi bach - not modern, not fancy but definitely interesting! Free ultra fast broadband.
Perfect for those that want to experience something totally different to a hotel.

1 min walk to the stunning beach. 2mins to the river and Sunset Point. 5mins to all bars, museum, theater, restaurants and shops. The perfect spot to holiday beside the beach and still be right in the heart of town.

Our cottage is nearly 100 years old. It's a traditional New Zealand wooden bungalow.
This is NOT a shiny new, modern house but it does have fast Broadband! If you don't enjoy the character of old houses then this won't be the right place for you, but if you want a traditional Kiwi cottage by the sea where beach walks and sunsets are valued, this could be just what you are looking for. This house is quirky, interesting and fun! We offer a chance for guests to stay somewhere a little different, experience some West Coast history and chill out by the sea with a glass of wine and some great local food.

NOTE: The house can sleep 9 comfortably but there is only 1 bathroom.

Plenty of parking.

The cosy lounge/dinning area is small but functional with new woodburner for heating in winter. (If you do not know how to use an indoor fire, please do not book).

* Make sure you note our house rules and read the full description.

There is a large backyard suitable for BBQs and outdoor dining. It is fully fenced.

Books and toys provided for children.

Guest Access:
Access to the house and number of bedrooms required (as per people booked) Plenty of guest parking. Tell us exactly how many people are staying so that we know how many beds are required. E.g Do you need 1 queen bed or 2 singles. Children/infants are people too - please include them in your total of guests staying. They are not free.

Will suit independent travellers as I don't live on site. I'll try to meet you at the property and welcome you. If I can't meet you I'll send instructions on how to enter the house.
I'm happy to give you advice about restaurants and local attractions.

Crooked Mile Cottage is located on historic Revell Street, also known as the Crooked Mile. Hokitika has a rich and vibrant history that you can learn about at the museum. Now, Hokitika is a busy little tourist town with a great arts and craft culture. There are many excellent restaurants & bars, and of course our stunning, wild beach. The best place to stay on the West Coast!

You can easily walk to the beach/river and shops/restaurants.

This is an old house. It has it's quirks but it is clean and has been freshly decorated. Please don't expect a modern/new house. The kitchen is small and original.
Not all of the windows are meant to open.
In winter you will need to know how to use a woodburner fire.

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 12 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.
