Wonderful homestay with very fast broadband wireless internet connection! which lets face it is important! Great hosts who are more than happy to turn up the large fire in the guest lounge, regale you with information about new zealand and provide a feast of a breakfast! Myself and my father stayed for one night whilst on the way to Queenstown and the room was very clean and comfortable.
If your enthusiastic there are horses to feed, 2 very friendly dogs to befriend and even some feline companions about the place. Do not worry if you are not a pet person as all furry companions are kept away from the guest accomodation areas.
Whilst the homestay is not in the centre of Hokitika it is located very conveniently between Greymouth and only about a 5 minute drive from Hokitika township centre itself. There is access to the beach and bush nearby and route 6 the main road through new zealand is just off the turning for the homestead.
Awatuna is easy find, set in beautiful gardens and has a decent webpage. I recommend that you contact the hosts directly for a personal touch for your stay as they are more than willing to accomodate any requests, or deal with any queries.
