Rural location on SH6, 2 minutes from Hari Hari village in an area of great bush-walking; renowned trout fishing streams; whitebaiting; surf-casting; excellent hunting and local bow-hunters club; lake swimming and boating; whitewater rivers; bird watching and isolated seal colony; wild lonely driftwood covered beaches for building bonfires; plus free natural hot-springs just a 5 minute drive and a 3 minute walk away (one of the West Coast's best kept secrets).
Conveniently situated to take day trips exploring up and down the Coast - 45 minutes to Franz Joseph Glacier (glacier tours, sky-diving, kayaking, horse-treking, kiwi watching, hot pools) and 45 minutes to Hokitika (greenstone, glass-blowing, kiwi house, tree-top walkway).

Only wish we could have stayed longer, beautiful & charming rustic cottage made with a lot of love.
Loved being "off grid" , marshmallows on the bonfire, stoking up the potbelly & spent hours soaking in the outdoor bath on a beautiful clear West Coast night. The natural hot pool only a short distance away a must!
AMAZING, no other word for this wee bach, it was a fantastic place to stay and I highly recommend it to everyone. We will definitely be back for another stay in the future
A romantic and very laid back place to stay
Awesome little lodge. Wonderful to stay in a place that's made with love. Peaceful atmosphere. Definitely would love to go back!!
I honestly cannot recommend this bach highly enough. If you look at the photos and description and think it sounds like somewhere you might like to stay: IT IS. Cosy and inviting, unbeatable ambiance, beautiful surroundings, helpful hosts who give you as much or as little attention as you want - the only downside you'll find is that you have to leave eventually! We will definitely be recommending Wildside to anyone we know venturing down the west coast.
