This is excellent accommodation, very good value, quiet, very comfortable and everything in excellent order. The free wifi was much appreciated. We can wholeheartedly recommend Cedar Cottage.

Thank you for a fantastic stay. You have created a home away from home and much appreciated with four children! Okarito is a beautiful part of New Zealand.

Thanks Brian and Raewyn for kindness in making our stay at Okarito so enjoyable. A few pounds of whitebait, beautiful weather and as always a magic place.

Looking forward to coming back again - take care.

Two nights but only one full day - And oh! What a day!

Three hours kayaking up the lagoon with Okarito Nature Tours - great guide - lots of birds, "bush" so different from Aussie bush. Then soaked our weary muscles at Glacier Hot Pools Aaaah! Worth the money - BIG cuppa coffee at Blue Ice Franz Josef. Regroup then trot up the Trig walk in time for sunset, clouds parted while we were there to reveal all the magnificent peaks! What an awesome creation - thanks to our wonderful creator. Just like this beautiful home away from home - lovely, carefully planned and such lovely colour coordination and thoughtfulness.

Well done and many thanks.

Cedar Cottage was an absolutely delightful place to stay and I think I have found my own personal paradise in Okarito. The accomodation was lovely and welcoming, the fire warmed the place through beautifully. This is simply one of the most charming and welcoming places I have ever stayed and it truly felt like a home away from home.

Thank you Brian and Raewyn. Okarito was quite a find and we loved the seclusion of this village of some 20 or 30 people. The walks and beaches are marvellous. Cedar Cottage was even more of a surprise as we found it beautifully decorated inside, without going over the top. We wanted to avoid the tourist haven of Franz Josef and we were so happy that we found your cottage. Thank you also for the small gift that you left us. Mark

Okarito was the only place in New Zealand I really wanted to see, otherwise I've been happy to see everything we've seen. But only this place has had a special meaning to me - even before we came. It has not let me down, in fact it feels almost painful to leave.

Cedar Cottage has been by far the best accommodation we've had, it's perfect!
Thank you so much for making my dream come true!

What a lovely place to stay!

We arrived to find a present from Raewyn--beautiful coasters from hand-spun wool!! The cottage itself was immaculate and comfortable. And it is located so close to the beach! A wonderful place to recharge and do as little or as much as you want.

We walked up to the trig track to see Mt. Cook poking out of the clouds and over to three-mile on the pack track. We kayaked on the lagoon and saw Kotuku and Spoonbills. We had coffee at the Kayak shop, took in a music concert at Donovan's store and even had a chance to take a yoga class.

This is truly one of the most gorgeous places in New Zealand, and this cottage was a pleasure to stay in. Thank you Brian & Raewyn!!

Fabulous! A little haven of comfort and serenity! Time wasn't long enough for us to enjoy everything that you had at our disposal.

We walked on the beach amongst the foamy waves and the froth saw some great waves. We did a morning boat tour on the lagoon, it was a fantastic experience! Saw herons, black swans, shags, pigeons...

This is really the place were you should stay if you want to experience something off the beaten track.

The cottage has everything one could want. Thanks for leaving us your card; we will certainly recommend your place to other friends in Europe who will be going to New Zealand next year.

Typical West Coast welcome - heavy rain and flooding in Greymouth. Then arrival to fire lit; coaster gift and ice for my Whisky - bliss.

254 steps up to Trig to a spectacular vista of Southern Alps in cloudless winter splendour, also Okarito Lagoon.

Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, lunch at Lake Matheson and out to Gillespie's Beach.

Finally Three Mile Lagoon along the beach and back over the Pack - Track. Sunday session at Kayak coffee shop.

So cosy and comfortable. This trip reinforces how fortunate we are to live and contribute to this amazing country. Thanks for your hospitality.

Anne and John, Nelson

Nearby attractions & activities
Okarito has about thirty year-around residents and is a quiet village known for its peaceful ambiance. Being off the beaten track, Okarito is an experience only for those who seek it. A very special place, with characteristics such as; its peaceful quality, the wild coastline, mountain views, lagoon, white herons and kiwi, and forest backdrops. They contrast and complement the glacial and commercial focus of township. Restaurants, grocery, fuel etc. are available 20 minutes away in the township of Franz Josef Glacier. Okarito and the West Coast as a whole offers an unparalleled convergence of natural environments combined with a casual lifestyle.

Here the dense, native bush which typifies the West Coast abuts the towering, snow-covered Southern Alps whose presence dominates everything below. The Okarito Lagoon, located on the shores of the Tasman Sea is the largest unmodified wetland in New Zealand. The entire region surrounding Okarito is permanently protected by Westland National Park and Kiwi Sanctuary.

Local activities include coastal and bush walks, kayaking, fishing, whitebaiting, kiwi tours, and boat tours on Okarito Lagoon. In Franz Josef, flights, glacier walks and hotpools.
