Woodpecker Hut, West Coast

Woodpecker Hut, near Punakaiki

From $290 p/n
Sleeps up to 4

Woodpecker Hut is set on a coastal cliff top property on the famous Great Coast Highway, half way between Greymouth and Westport and just a seven minute drive from Punakaiki (site of the 'Pancake Rocks'). Like our little Hexagon, just up the road - it is a great base to explore this stunning region from.

Woodpecker Hut consists of two small, off-grid timber huts, adjoined by a covered outdoor kitchen and living area. One hut is the master bedroom - with a luxurious king size bed. The other is a comfortable lounge hut, with a wood-burning stove and second bed for extras. Built by a local builder and artist, the huts have been crafted right down to the position of the nails. Waney edge weatherboard and native timber lining give the huts a rustic, natural charm. The interior decor is cosy, but contemporary. Soft furs and natural fibres add to the feeling of simple luxury.

The views from every window of the huts are amazing. Facing north toward the ocean, they enjoy all day sun. A cedar hot tub set into the deck at the front of the huts offers the perfect place to wile away a few hours. Soak in steaming hot water and gaze out at the spectacular ocean view.

Designed as the ultimate glamping accommodation - to relax, unwind and unplug - you'll love the chance to just chill out. But if you are looking for something to do - you'll find it! The property itself is 1.5 hectares of regenerating native bush. A short loop walk around the property is great for exploring with the kids - or head down to beautiful Safety or Woodpecker Bay for a swim and a walk on the beach. Find great coffee down the road in Punakaiki, before taking in the natural wonder of the spectacular Pancake Rocks. Fox River (a short 2 minute drive away) has a scenic 2 hour bush walk up the river valley. For the more adventurous, the Old Ghost Trail mountain biking and tramping trail starts 40 minutes away in Westport - or the West Coast Wilderness Trail starts in Greymouth.
