Welcome to TaMa Country Retreat, a cosy two bedroom guesthouse with a welcoming fire for those cold nights set on a 10 acre lifestyle block. With a full sized kitchen, and bath in the bathroom. There is a flying fox and trampolines for the kids, and adults can enjoy the sunsets from the patio. Visit the world famous Hokitika Gorge. Only 5km from town, the beautiful Lake Mahinapua and treetop walk, 3km to the beach, golf course and cycle trail, and many stunning walking tracks.

The space
Our holiday home is a two bedroom fully self contained home with a fire to keep you warm and cozy. There is a queen bed in the master room, and double and single in the second bedroom. The bathroom has a shower and bath for those of you who want to light a candle and have a soak after a long days sight seeing.
Our place has a tranquil feel to it with beautiful surroundings. Being just out of town with no street lights to dull them the stars are amazing on a clear night. And if you don't feel like cooking then town is only a 5minute drive away to one of our awesome restaurants or takeaways. There really is no better place to be on a clear night than outside listening to the sea roar and the frogs croak looking up at the Milky Way

Guest access
Guests will have access to the trampolines and flying fox (at your own risk) and because we live on sight I can answer any questions you have about local attractions or things to do in and around Hokitika.

Other things to note
On our property we have two cats, a dog (friendly but excitable so if you are scared of dogs please let me know and I will keep her inside so she doesn't frighten you!) two chickens, five sheep and two miniature ponies along with numerous fish in the pond by the flying fox.
Hokitika is a great place to base yourself for 2-3 nights as there is so much to see in the general area. We are a 1.5hr drive to Arthur's Pass, Franz Joseph and Fox Glacier, a 1hr drive to the pancake rocks at Punakaiki, there are coal mine tours, Shanty Town (NZ from the early 1900's) the world famous Hokitika Gorge, Lake Kaneire, Dorothy Falls, Lake Mahanipua, Tree top Walk, bicycle trails (bike hire in town) and so much more!

A great place to base yourself for 2-3 nights so you don't miss out on anything. So much to see and do around Hokitika and a great base for day trips (Arthur's Pass, Frank Joseph, Fox Glacier, Punakaiki, Lake Brunner and more) so you don't miss out on anything and make the most of your trip to NZ!

At our place we are surrounded by beautiful lifestyle farms and a small gold mining operation yet we are only a 5minute drive to the supermarket, beach, lake, tree top walk and numerous bush walks. From your space you get glimpses of the ocean, sunsets and the stunning southern alps. Check out the following video to get a feel for this beautiful little corner of the world we live in. We really are very lucky:-)

We have lived in this beautiful part of the world for 7 years after returning from Australia where we lived for 10 years. I spent 6 years before that with my backpack and sense of adventure which saw me travel to many corners of the world
During your stay
As I am on site I can interact with guests as much as is needed without getting in your way. I am only a door knock away if you have any queries or problems. We have a friendly dog, sheep that I'm happy to get out so you can have a pet and two beautiful miniature ponies that love a good scratch and sugar cube or carrot treat . I do not recommend going into the paddock with the animals, but if I am here I am happy to get them out for you
