About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Step back in time in our charming 1930's built cottage, filled with things from a simpler era.

Enjoy a soak in our gorgeous garden fire-bath or in the natural hot springs nearby.

Spin some classic vinyl on the record player or indulge your imagination in our dress-up box.

Heaps of books, board games, puzzles and memorabilia to look at on those wet West Coast days.

Kid-friendly - cot, highchair, pram, potty, toys, swings and sandpit.

Bicycles for all ages.

This is an old cottage with it's own quirks, such as a bathroom just outside, through the laundry. It is for those who want a step-back-in-time experience, not an empty motel-like space.

2 kms from Hari Hari village, in an area of great tramping, fishing, hunting (including weekly bow-hunters club), lake swimming and boating.

Conveniently located between Hokitika and Franz Josef Glacier (45 mins each way) for easy day trips.

Natural Hot Springs just 8 minutes away - one of the Coast's best kept secrets.

Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live next door.

Teapot Cottage is on the same acre property as our other (completely different and off-grid) Bookabach, 'Wildside Lodge'.

Special conditions:

Pets may be allowed with prior approval.

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

The property is unique and fully matched the description.

  • 4 of 5

The property is unique and fully matched the description. I agree with somebody's comment a "living museum" which was an interesting experience. However, some improvements like microwave and dining table would be a great addition. No TV or Wi-Fi but the recorder was working and a collection of discs was great.

Teapot Cottage is a welcome retreat from the hectic day to day. No cell service, no TV, no wi-fi; but tons of cozy charm, old records and relaxing ambience. If we get the chance we will be back!

Teapot Cottage was the highlight of our stays in NZ.

  • 5 of 5

Teapot Cottage was the highlight of our stays in NZ. We loved the time trippy vibe, the cosy comfort and the unique experience of living in the past. We had a fabulous dance night listening to music on vinyl on the RADIOGRAM!!!! Beatles, Neil Diamond, ABBA! And the outdoor bath was a blast! We stoked up this masterpiece and soaked forever in delicious warmth while the rain gently sprinkled, birds sang and a beautiful plump pigeon nibbled new leaves! BLISS! MAKE SURE YOU STAY AT TEAPOT.
