Pet Friendly

DOGS that are well behaved are welcome to stay with prior arrangement. No animals are to be allowed on the beds or furniture and please keep them close to you and under control at all times. On arrival, please make voice contact with me prior to letting your dog out of the vehicle. I have 2 dogs (Scout and Buttons) which may be onsite and Scout spaniel is not always very good at meeting new dogs, so I will put her in her garden when you arrive. Thanks for your understanding.

Bike Trails

The West Coast Wilderness Trail is less than 1000 meters in either direction. The Retreat offers a bike shed with power points for e-bikes. Trail transport may be available for upto 4 bikes and riders from either Hokitika or Greymouth for a reasonable fee. There is a small shop for basic food supplies, continental breakfasts and packed lunches can be arranged if booked in advance. Evening deep tissue or relaxation massage if booked in advance and yoga designed to help and support the weary cyclist. Please get in touch if I can help or supply anything else for your journey.
