Punakaiki was an unexpected highlight for us. I'm so glad we stayed here rather than Greymouth or Westport. I fear that we may have kept on driving a missed the pancake rocks which are really impressive.
The cottage was indeed a little dated but perfectly comfortable and spacious. And very clean and warm. We enjoyed a fantastic steak at the tavern, which I highly recommend. It's a really warm and welcoming place and I appreciated the book swap shelf :)
