Really lovely house, lots of cool quirky things to look at.

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely house, lots of cool quirky things to look at. The bathroom has a lovely claw-foot bath! The bedroom is huge, easily big enough for all 4 of us. Really interesting ornaments and souvenirs, all set out on upcycled shelves, eclectic mix of furniture and vintage bits and pieces. Super-comfortable beds, toys and books for the kids, homemade muesli and yoghurt from the farm. fresh fruit and Havana coffee all in the room! Perfect distance from Hokitika.. easy drive to town for dinner.

Very quiet and restful. its a beautiful old house with lots of character and a really comfortable feeling. We had a great time wandering around the yard and checking out the animals, especially the wee piggies!

We loved our stay ! So peaceful and at the same time very close to Hokitika.Enjoyed very much communicating with Michelle and her husband. Lovely exchanges around a glass of wine...Our boys loved the place and a big thank you to Michelle for showing them little lambs ! They will remember the lambs "lollies" ! Thank you so much for sharing your kitchen and dining table with us ! We will make sure we will come back to your place if we travel in this lovely area !

My family of 4 had an enjoyable 2 night stay at the Blue Spur Farmstay. Michelle and her husband Garth are very sincere and welcoming hosts with an in-depth knowledge of the area. They gave us excellent recommendations on places to visit and dine. We also enjoyed interacting with the friendly and funny animals on their property :) A wonderful option if you are looking for accommodation in the area!
