Located on a sandspit, it stretches along the shores of the Tasman sea, encircled by the outstanding Okarito lagoon, rainforest and the Southern Alps. Beach walks, forest walks, boat tours, and nocturnal kiwi tours are all at your doorstep! Getting AroundYou will need your own transportation to get to Okarito - it is about 1.5 hours drive south of Hokitika - handy to the nearby Glacier township of Franz Josef (but far away from the main stream and helicopters!).

The SpaceThis cute "grandma's" theme cottage, built in the 1930's, is decorated with typical 50's NZ memorabilia - if you are looking for an empty motel-like space this is probably not for you - this place is ideal for those interested in 'the old days'. Spin some classic vinyl on the record player. Plus puzzles, games, books and dress-ups for rainy days. Has a beautiful fire-bath - perfect for star-gazing while soaking. Kid friendly with cot, highchair, toys, sandpit, swings. This is an old house with it's own quirks such as a bathroom just outside the main part of the house. Guest AccessTeapot Cottage has it's own quarter acre yard but is part of a one acre property called Wildside, which also contains our home and another holiday cabin called Wildside Lodge. Each is about 30 metres from the other and fairly private from each other. Interaction with GuestsAs we live next door we are happy to help whenever needed and try to be around to meet you when you arrive. We pride ourselves on genuine West Coast hospitality so if you are interested we will show you around the rest of our place which includes an old wood workshop and honey house. We do, however, try to respect the privacy of our guests. Dan is available to take guided fishing trips on local rivers, lake or beach. The NeighborhoodWe are in a lovely rural setting, 2 km from Hari Hari village. It is an area of great hiking, fishing, hunting (including weekly bow-hunting meets), lake swimming and boating. Natural hot-springs in the riverbed are just a 7 minute drive and a 2 minute walk away. Hari Hari is 45 minutes from Franz Josef Glacier to the south and 45 minutes to Hokitika in the North, so is well placed for day trips in either direction. Getting AroundThe Intercity bus stops in Hari Hari once a day and we can collect you from there if needed. Other Things to NoteThere is no cell phone coverage here (2 km to nearest reception) and do not expect post 1950's mod-cons such as TV, microwave or WI-FI. The bathroom is just outside the main part of cottage, through the porch. Typically for the West Coast, there are a few sand-flies and mosquitoes about, so bring repellent.

            A small & cozy coastal cottage, in the tiny nature lover's seaside township of Okarito lagoon. The cottage is perfect for those looking for something special - with full kitchen, a full bedroom & a queen-bed sleeping nook. Great reading spot with Alps views. The outdoor offer a BBQ & firebath for relaxing after long walks. The quiet upstairs has a full bedroom complete with reading spot that is perfect for catching the morning sun, glimpses of the Southern Alps or some afternoon rest. The downstairs area has a small sleeping nook with a comfy queen bed. The kitchen comes fully-equipped. There is a fire bath in the back garden, for the adventurous - after gathering driftwood from the beach, light the fire, heat the bath and then sit back with a glass of red wine and watch the southern night sky. While staying in Okarito Holiday Cottage you will have full access to all spaces in the cottage. Beyond the house there is a tennis court, directly opposite the house - we have tennis racquets for you to use. Our guests arrive and depart independently; we are not on site. Okarito is a very small town and you will need to collect provisions on your way in. Upon booking, we will send you full instructions about how to access the cottage. The rest is up to you and yor sense of adventure... There is lots to do in Okarito. The adjacent Lagoon is one of New Zealand's largest tidal lagoons and native bird wetland habitats. Take a boat tour or hire a kayak and guide yourself, both are great ways to experience the local fauna and flora of the wetlands, and to see spectacular views of the southern Alps. The beaches are dramatic and fantastic for exploring and beach combing. There are graded department of conservation walkways across the wetland, along the coastline and up into the hills - all with spectacular views. Further afield, you are 25 mins from Franz Josef Glacier township. Everything in Okarito is within walking distance. The beginning of all walking tracks, the boat tour, Kiwibird tour and kayak rental activities are all within 5 mins walk. You will need a vehicle if you intend visiting the Franz Josef glacier region which is 25 mins by car. We only accept a minimum of two nights bookings. PLEASE NOTE: Okarito is a remote destination suitable for people who want to get away from the very busy tourist town of Franz Josef while being able to access the glacier country. There is no grocery store or petrol station in Okarito so guests will need to bring all provisions with them - available at the grocery store in Franz. The nearest centre is Franz Josef township - approximately 25 mins drive away.
