LOCATION
The house sits on top of a ridge overlooking native bush and farmland with views of the Tasman Sea in the distance. The property is a 75 acre farm with sheep, cattle, pigs, goats and birds.
The property is 2mins from the Arahura River - an important source of pounamu (jade) on the West Coast.


IMPORTANT - WE ARE AN ECO-FRIENDLY HOME
** Our house is completely off-grid. All our power comes from solar panels. All our water is rainwater collected from the roof. Many of the features in the house are from building recyclers. If you need microwaves, hairdryers and A/C etc, we are not the place for you.

**Make yourself at home - we look forward to meeting you!**

- Guests have access to their own bathroom and private bedroom with sitting space. Note on some occasions in peak season the guest bathroom may be shared with a couple or single traveller. This does not happen often.
_ The kitchen is not available.
- You are free to wander the farm to see the animals.
- For safety reasons the power shed is off limits to guests.
Do not enter rooms marked "Private".

We are busy people who work hard. We value our family time in the evenings. We prefer independent guests who enjoy their own space and privacy.
We are happy to give you plenty of tips and advice about local attractions/history/places to eat and shop and tips on travel in NZ.
Your privacy will be respected, and I will not enter your room during your stay. Please read the entire listing description to be sure I can fully meet your expectations.
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 a must to make the most of sightseeing.
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.

We are off-grid so 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.

Guests can not cook here. 没有厨房

"This farm is like a dreamland. We kept seeing more animals as we came up the drive. There are lots of interesting personal touches in the rooms & bathroom. We noticed the use of rocks throughout the house & applaud it! Breakfast is superb. The glow worm dell in close by Hokitika is magical!" - Blue Spur Farmstay Eco-home Hokitika, see animals!

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.
