Overview

Photos and Description of this Hokitika holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 16)

Located along the stunning and rugged West Coast of New Zealand's South Island, Drifting Sands is the perfect beachfront bach with that cozy home away from home feel.

The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with open plan kitchen, lounge and dining. This sleeps eight people.

A fourth room, our Beach Hut is situated in the garden leading directly to the beach and can sleep a further five people.

The 1930's house has a roaring Pioneer fireplace in the lounge with stereo and board games to keep family and friends entertained. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to cook up a tasty meal or two.

If you wander through the back garden, you will find yourself on the beach, which is ideal for fishing, paddling, or just enjoying a stroll taking in the wild ocean, the view and the expanse of beach as far as the eye can see. We are so fortunate to enjoy such gorgeous sunsets with a bonfire while the sun goes down. Don't forget to keep your eye out for some jade stone along the way!

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (included);

Awesome family/ group accommodation, warm and welcoming. Beach access just a walk through the back and shops literally just walking distance.

We had a winter break for 12 people at Drifting Sands. The house had plenty of room, it was clean and warm. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating with fresh bread when we arrived and on our last day. The location couldn't have been better with just a few steps down the garden onto the gorgeous sandy beach. Great place and we'll be back! Thank you.
