Beach Haven Retreat is a new studio designed to capture views of the large ponds we have created to attract the local bird life. Just past the ponds is the Tasman Sea with it's forever changing moods and dramatic sunsets.
Have a beach fire using the driftwood that washes in.
Stargaze, absorbing the outdoor splendour, then go to sleep to the sound of the waves.
Take your shoes off and cross the HouHou stream to the beach where you have the choice to walk north towards the Arahura River - 5 kms of uninterrupted beach. Or walk south - 3.5 kms to Hokitika township. All the while looking for precious stones that you can polish and turn into a pendant using our stone polishing wheel
