Ann's Cottage - By the Sea

Vacation home in Hokitika with patio
**Please note that the cottage is heated with a wood and coal fire in winter.
Stay for a night or spend a few days and explore the whole of the West Coast from one base. Only one hours drive to Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki or one and a half hours to Franz Josef Glacier. Try the new West Coast Tree Top Walk or take a drive to Hokitika Gorge to walk the swing bridge and view the stunning turquoise blue water. Then relax and enjoy a peaceful nights sleep at the end of the day.
Check out the jade carving and glass blowing studios and browse the craft shops. Enjoy brunch, lunch or just coffee at one of Hokitika's excellent cafes. Enjoy a glass of wine at The West Coast Wine Bar. Watch the sun set at Sunset Point.
You can sit on the deck in the morning sun, stroll on the beach at sunset. Dine out in style at any of our local restaurants or see the latest movie at Hokitika's Regent Theatre. Afterwards you can take a quick walk around the corner from the cottage after dark to check out the Glow Worm Dell.

Communication could have been a bit better as we were advised milk, cereal and fruit would be provided. No instructions on how to use DVD player. But overall a lovely stay
