                                        Comfy beds and good linen made a touch of luxury in an idyllic spot on the wild coast.

                                        Comfy beds and good linen made a touch of luxury in an idyllic spot on the wild coast.

                                        It's a wonderful location, right on the beach just north of Hokitika.

                                        It's a wonderful location, right on the beach just north of Hokitika. Beach views and walks. Opportunities to make a fire on the beach just metres from the house. Covered outdoor sitting area with beach views but sheltered from the prevailing wind. Clean inside, well equipped. And the bonus of penguins at night and tame eels to feed! We enjoyed the location for the bike trails also, which were great.

                                        Great location, comfortable beds with nice linen and a good hot shower.

                                        Great location, comfortable beds with nice linen and a good hot shower. The bach had everything we needed for our weekend stay.

                                        Great stay.

                                        Dianne T.

                                        Great stay. Good to be so close to the beach.

                                        Highly recommended Penguins Retreat.

                                        Highly recommended Penguins Retreat. Batch provides everything you could ask for in an ideal location. Great for families and those who just want peace and quiet. Light the fire at night, bath outside, here's plenty to keep u entertained. A separate laundry room for washing and stock if you need a towel or basics such as toilet paper. A homeaway from home!!

                                        Great location.

                                        Elyse T.

                                        Great location. Very clean house. Dishes could have been a little more clean but wasn’t a big deal - we just washed them ourselves. Enjoyed beach campfires and kayaking on the stream!
