Cosy Cottage By The Sea

Centrally located, right by the sea. Fully fenced, historic cottage with plenty of character and charm. Great for families and groups.

Crooked Mile Cottage is so close to the sea you can hear the waves. Stroll over the road to watch the amazing sunsets, grab some fish & chips and wander down to Sunset Point.

Property Details

In the heart of Hokitika. 1min to the beach and river. 5mins walk to bars, restaurants, theatre and shops. An old, historic little cottage full of character and charm. A typical Kiwi bach – not modern,  but definitely interesting!  The perfect spot to holiday beside the beach and still be right in the heart of town.

Perfect for those that want to experience something totally different to a hotel.

Our cottage is nearly 100 years old. It’s a traditional New Zealand wooden bungalow. 
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 – the bedrooms are spacious –  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.

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

It is fully fenced.
Books and toys provided for children.

Hokitika is the best place to base yourself while exploring the West Coast. You can drive to all the major attractions in a day easily. Many of our guests do day trips to Franz Josef glacier, Punakaiki Pancake Rocks and the Hokitika Gorge. It is also a great place to stay if you are cycling the West Coast Wilderness Trail.

In The Historic Heart Of Hokitika

Crooked Mile Cottage is located on Revell Street in the historic area of the town. There are many NZ Heritage listed buildings in very close proximity. If you have read the Luminaries by Elenor Catton, you will know all about this part of Hokitika.

Cosy & Quirky Interior

The cottage is full interesting decor and there are plenty of historic photos on the walls so you can get a sense of what the town was like during the gold rush years.
