A warm welcoming guesthouse right on the cool Tasman Sea. Everything within walking distance and nothing was too much trouble for our helpful host. She loves her life! Fresh traditional breakfast was a highlight.

Very friendly and relaxed place to stay, and delicious breakfast. An ideal chance to catch up with other travellers and find out the best places to visit in and around Hokitika. Had a great pizza at The Fat Pipi restaurant in town.
