Great house with history. Brought gold town experience alive. Good location off the beach and near the town centre. Good host who thought of everything the weary traveller needs. “Amazing”. Quote my kids after their first Kiwi bach. Loved the house, pity we only had a few hours stay. Well deserved 5* rating. Jean

Michelle is thoughtful and considerate, accommodating my travel schedule and providing plenty of tips and advice for how to make my time in Hokitika extra special. The house is just down the street about a block from downtown and the beach but feels secluded enough that it’s the perfect retreat.
