Restful bach close to the beach and glow worm dell

Family-friendly holiday home in Hokitika
Whether it's the cycle trail or the tree top walkway, the Hokitika Gorge or Lake Kaniere you have come to see, you will welcome the rest at our bach. Hoki Hideaway 'Son of a Bach' has musical themes on the walls and our family has enjoyed the serenity of the place for some years before deciding to share our little piece of paradise, our respite, with others. We hope you will enjoy your stay. There are plenty of games and books for those days when you just want to curl up and relax. There is heaps of off-street parking, so if you are travelling with a boat or a bigger vehicle then you can park it at the bach without problem. Smoking outside is allowed and we ask that you use the sandy tub to dispose of your butts. We provide breakfast cereals and toast with spreads. We treasure our little getaway and we hope you will show it the same respect as you would expect if you had people staying in your home. It's only a short easy walk to town from the bach and there are some excellent cafe's and eateries in the township. Hokitika also has many interesting walks and tourist shops. You won't be bored. If you love taking photographs then the area has some excellent scenery to explore. We welcome pets, but be aware, the section is not fully fenced, so look after your pet if it is outside at any time. Ideal for smaller or house based dogs.

Hokitika Stay

4/5 Good

Beach house
We found this house to be clean, well furnished and very comfortable - good beds. Appreciated advanced communication about oven not working at the moment. Entrance deck leaning significantly which could be a problem for elderly needing level access. Liked the location close to the beach for walking. Generally convenient to explore the local area. Thank you for the loan of your home.

Fabulous holiday home
I can't speak highly enough of Megan as a host, and the amenities supplied with this property (lots of warm bedding, heating, kitchen and bathroom supplies, wifi etc). The property is clean, and comfortable, with a personal touch in the decor. It is very comfortable, with lots of thoughtful extras provided for travellers (such as bathroom and pantry products). Megan is a fabulous communicator, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a fabulous holiday in this beautiful part of the South Island. I would love to stay there again, and would thoroughly recommend the property to others.
