About this Holiday House

Wonderful beach cottage in Okarito, situated 1.5 hours south of Hokitika. See video at https://youtu.be/dHN-K09jfxI This is a cozy, two storey cottage with modern kitchen and free WiFi. Upstairs bedroom with a reading corner and comfy queen bed, perfect for reading and enjoying the stunning views of the alps. Downstairs has a small and private queen-bed sleeping nook, open plan lounge and full kitchen with all equipment needed. Modern and clean bathroom with gas hot water. Lovely landscaped outdoor area with an outdoor fire bath to lay in and soak up the starry southern milky way. Glorious views of the Southern Alps. Things to do in Okarito: Wild windswept beach to explore and collect rocks and driftwood, fishing, kayaking on the lagoon, walking in native bush to secluded beaches, bird watching (Kiwi, Kotuku-White Heron, Spoonbill, Godwits, Fern Bird, Tui) and famous West Coast whitebaiting. Kiwi bird night tours leave from the village. **Please note** (1) There are no supermarkets or stores in Okarito so you need to bring in all your own supplies. Closest store is 25 mins away at Franz Josef. (2) All linen is supplied and the cottage is serviced for you. We have a minimum two night bookings.

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of the South Island. Highly recommend.
We had a very good time in Okarito and the cottage was exactly what we were expecting. Perfect
Lovely well equipped cottage. Owner was very helpful by allowing me to trickle charge our EV to 100% and enabling us to get to Wanaka without having to stop for a slow recharge on route. It would have been useful to realize there was no milk supplied .. and the nearest shop 50 minutes drive.
Response from Owner
Hi Bryan, glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage and was happy to help you out with your vehicle. Just a note re the supplies (for other guests reading your review), instructions emailed with your booking confirmation did explain that all supplies must be brought with you. This is due to the remote location and not wanting perishables to go off between guests. Also, instructions you received explained that the closest store to Ōkārito is in Franz Josef (25 mins drive away). All the best for the rest of your travels 🌺
