About this listing

My cosy home is situated in a sunny country setting 10 minutes drive time from Hokitika and 20 minutes drive time from Greymouth.
It has views of the coastline and Southern Alps and plenty of West Coast attractions are within a day trip i.e. Franz Josef & Fox Glaciers, Punakaikai (Pancake Rocks).
There are historic gold field walks nearby and the West Coast Wilderness Cycle Trail is only 15 minutes away.

The space

Welcome to my home which is also shared with Missy the friendly house cat, along with Jess the outside pup.
The clean and spacious guest room (with new queen size bed) has an external access that opens out onto the deck.
Continental breakfast is served in the open plan kitchen/lounge.
Complimentary Tea and Coffee is available at all times during your stay.
There is a BBQ on the covered deck that guests may also use.

Guest access

Guests are most welcome to use my lounge to watch TV or just relax.
There is a large garden to walk around and enjoy, or go out on a fine night to view the milky way in our clear night sky, it is a brilliant sight.

Interaction with guests

I will be around for the duration of your stay, so can help with your trip planning and can also offer plenty of tips for places to see while on the beautiful West Coast.

Other things to note

Guests may use the BBQ on the deck but not the kitchen for cooking, there is fridge space available for those traveling with food.

Our stay in Bernie's house was wonderful! There's no other word to describe it. The bed was simply amazing with an electric blanket, the shower was nice and warm and the breakfast had everything we needed to set off to Arthur's Pass. Thank you Bernie!!

Bernie was such a lovely host. You arrived and it feels like home. The room is comfortable and the breakfast awesome. Yes, it's a very quiet neighborhood, but you wake up with the noise of the Ocean!
