Hokitika is always amazing. The place is basic but fine. Enjoyed our stay.
We loved our time at Whitebait Cottage - long walks on the beach in the morning, and champagne in the evening watching the sunset. It's a basic little bach but had everything we needed and we felt very comfortable and very much at home.
Excellent, we have stayed in all 3 properties over the years and each is unique, be back again early next year, thanks.
Great property a typical kiwi bach. Everything that we needed warm and dry. Great space for the dog and nice little touches like body wash for our use. Would definitely stay again. Slept like a baby to the sound of the waves a great stay!
