* THE SPACE: Gold Nugget Hut is a gorgeous little space created with all sorts of upcycled and salvaged pieces collected over the years by us. We've incorporated hardwood power poles, reclaimed wood paneling, antique enamel cookware and collectables within the site. The hut itself started off life as an industrial office in Greymouth. We relocated it, relined and clad it then added all the special touches. Almost everything is either upcyled/repurposed and 2nd hand.

* The hut is perfect for a couple, with cosy indoor sleeping and a small seating area. Outside is an outdoor, covered kitchen and seating area - a great way to connect with the stunning Hokitika countryside.

* Outside, outdoor furniture and a campfire area are the perfect places to take in the farm vibe and stargaze.

* KITCHEN + COOKING: Gold Nugget Hut is self catering, just bring your own food and drink, and cook meals using the facilities provided in your covered, outdoor kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need. A chilly bin is provided to keep food and drinks cool. You can cook on the campfire as well, weather permitting.

*OPTIONAL S'MORES PLATTER: We offer a campfire night experience as an optional extra. Light a campfire, make marshmallow sticks for toasting your marshmallows to make s'mores. We provide a s'more platter with everything you need to make delicious s'mores any style you like.

*SLEEPING ARRANGEMENT: The hut has a queen bed with 100% cotton sheets, a feather duvet inner and extra blankets. Towels are also provided.

*POWER: Gold Nugget Hut is completely off-the-grid. Hot water is heated via a gas califont and cooking facilities are run via LPG bottles. Lighting runs on solar power.

*HIGHLIGHTS: You are welcome to walk the farm and meet the many animals. You can hand feed the friendly sheep and birds.
Bird lovers will delight in the abundance of fantails, tui, kereru, ruru and weka in the bush surrounding the hut.

*There are a number of short walks through old gold mine workings nearby. It is a short drive to Hokitika Beach, the Hokitika Glow Worm Dell and the Hokitika Gorge. The incredible Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki is approximately 1hr 15mins drive.

* Staying at Gold Nugget Hut is like taking a step back in time. Hokitika was once a bustling goldmining town, and remnants of the gold workings in the surrounding area, are reminiscent of a time when Blue Spur was populated by thousands of gold prospectors. Gold Nugget Hut is a modern pioneer-style mix.

* The hut is simple, rustic and quintessentially 'West Coast'. It's the perfect place to take time out, rest and soak up the breathtaking scenery of this wonderfully wild part of New Zealand. The hut has solar lighting, is fully insulated and off-grid.
Bring your marshmallows, sit by the fire and stargaze.

*LOCATION: The hut is 12 minutes drive from Hokitika township. It is on an elevated site looking out over Blue Spur Farm and the surrounding area. Behind the hut is lush native bush full of birdlife. It is a very sunny sheltered, private spot.

Meet The 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 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. 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.
