A beachfront studio unit sleeping 3 on the same large rural beachfront property as Penguins Retreat and Whitebait Cottage.
We do not live on the property so this place suits independent travellers who have a car, wanting to spend time on a west coast beach.
Only 3 minutes drive to Hokitika township.
Absolute beachfront semi-detached studio unit has beach views from every room.
It is only 3 kms from Hokitika township and in a central position for day trips to Punakaiki Pancake Rocks, Lakes, Hokitika Gorge, Tree Top Walkway, Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers. Hokitika is the jade capital of NZ so there are jade shops along with nice cafes in town.
It sleeps three in a queen bed and a single bed. Ideal for couples as the bed/lounge is in one.
There is an outdoor bath, lots of firewood on the beach to make an outdoor fire, abundant birdlife, including penguins that nest right by your outdoor seating area.
The laundry is shared with guests from Penguins Retreat and Whitebait Cottage.
Interaction with guests
As we do not live on the same property, we do not interact with guests unless they are there when we are servicing other accommodation, however we live close by so are available by phone.
There is a lot of information in the booklet on the table.
We expect guests to wash dry and put their dishes away and to leave the house tidy.
We clean and prepare the house for new guests arriving.
