Come and stay with us in our large farmhouse. Enjoy a FREE farm tour. We are 5mins drive to the beach & 10min from the town centre. Feed the many farm animals, relax and take in the views of the farm & bush. A friendly, real farm experience.
* This is a private room suitable for a single traveller or a couple. Maximum 2 people. There is one queen size bed. In peak season the bathroom and separate toilet may be shared with other guests.
* It is a large bedroom with amazing views over the farm. There is plenty of space to sit and relax.
* The flue/chimney from our stove goes through the room so it is always nice and warm. (Note sometimes you may hear the sound of the fire through the chimney).
If you are overly fussy and fancy, it may not be a fit. If you want a low key place on a farm where quiet and privacy are valued, this could be the place. No other houses are visible from ours yet we are only 15mins from the town. We run an authentic NZ farmstay where you can get up close to all the animals.

The house sits on top of a ridge overlooking native bush and farmland with views of the Tasman Sea in the distance. The property is a 75 acre farm with sheep, cattle, pigs, goats and birds. You will need a car to make the most of our place.
We are only a 5min drive to the beach which is a beautifully wild place filled with amazing driftwood and pebbles - a great place for a bonfire.
IMPORTANT - WE ARE AN ECO-FRIENDLY HOME
** Our house is completely off-grid. All our power comes from a solar panel array. All our water is rainwater collected from the roof. Many of the features in the house are from building recyclers. If you need microwaves, hairdryers and A/C etc, sorry we are not the place for you.
**Make yourself at home - we look forward to meeting you!**
** Please note your bedroom is upstairs**.
Guests have access to their own private bedroom with sitting space and bathroom. There is also a separate guest lounge area. At peak tourist times you may have to share the bathroom, this is not common though.
You are free to wander the farm to see the animals.
For safety reasons the power shed is off limits to guests.
I honor your privacy and will not enter your room during your stay.
**Unfortunately due to some bad experiences, the kitchen is not available to guests. We are very sorry about this, but there are some excellent restaurants in Hokitika.
Interakcija s gostima
We are busy people who work hard. We value our family time in the evenings. We prefer independent guests who enjoy their own space and privacy.
We are happy to give you plenty of tips and advice about local attractions/history/places to eat and shop and tips on travel in NZ.
I am happy to show you round the farm, just arrange a time with me. Otherwise you can wander around on your own.
We are LGBTQ friendly!
As we are off-grid, we must be careful with our power. We do not have a microwave, air conditioning, dishwasher or electric blankets (we offer hotwater bottles in winter), but our house is very warm. Use of hairdryers is not permitted.
Much of our cooking is done on a woodstove in our kitchen. This also provides all the heating for the house. Water is collected from rainwater on the roof and totally safe to drink. In summer water is in short supply and we need to be careful with water use. We have cellphone coverage but it is not good.

We try to offer a friendly and warm space that is quite different from a hotel experience. We want guests to feel comfortable and at home in the spaces we have set up. Our listings really appeal to folks who love character homes, enjoy art on the walls and vintage/retro furniture.
We have lived in Hokitika for the past 12 years. We enjoy good music and good food.
We have both traveled extensively.
We absolutely love living here in Hokitika. It has a wonderful community - we are a really eclectic bunch. The scenery is wild and stunning and the history is fascinating.
I'm busy running our farm as well as working. My husband works for an IT company from home (unfortunately he is very busy with his job, so you probably won't meet him). We look forward to meeting our guests and are always happy to help you plan activities here on the West Coast - rain or shine - it is a fantastic place to be.
