Fox Hut

West Coast, near Punakaiki

Fox Hut is set on a coastal clifftop property on the famous Great Coast Highway, halfway between Greymouth and Westport and just a seven-minute drive from Punakaiki (site of the 'Pancake Rocks'). 

Fox Hut is the 'sister hut' to Woodpecker Hut, the original hut on the property, made famous for its incredible views and simple, yet lovely rustic vibe.

Fox Hut is modelled from a pitched roof gold miners' hut with an enclosed lean-to kitchen and sitting area. Far from the basic hut design of yesteryear though, Fox Hut oozes rustic luxury. Recycled timber-lined walls are accompanied by rich velvet armchairs. Accents of brass, plush floor rugs and sheepskins add to the feel of quality and comfort. Huge glass windows frame the captivating ocean view.

A wood-fired cedar hot tub is set into the deck at the front of the hut - the perfect place to sit and soak - and watch the sun go down on the wild West Coast.

Winter or Summer, Fox Hut is the perfect couples retreat. Romantic, private and close to nature - you'll leave this place rested and reconnected.

  • Eating and Drinking

    Fox Hut is self-catering. Just bring your own food and drink, and cook meals using the BBQ and facilities provided in your hut kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need.

    If you want a break from cooking at any stage, Punakaiki is just an 8-minute drive away and Charleston is approximately 12 minutes away. Both have a small variety of cafes and restaurants to choose from.

    Supermarkets for food shopping can be found in either Westport (40-minute drive) or Greymouth (60-minute drive), so best to stock up before you arrive!

  • Things to do

    Designed as the ultimate glamping accommodation to unplug and relax - you'll appreciate the chance to just chill out. Soak in the hot tub or curl up with a good book. 

    If you are looking for something to do, you'll find it! Nearby you'll find beautiful Safety or Woodpecker Bay - head down to check out the caves, swim and walk on the beach.

    Down the road in Punakaiki, you can take in the natural wonder of the spectacular Pancake Rocks with a short loop walk. Fox River (a short 2 minute drive north of the hut) has a scenic 2 hour bush walk up the river valley and the Pororari River walk (8 minutes drive south) is a 'must do'.

    Kayaking, underwater rafting, glow-worm caves and even expert stargazing are a few activities you can do in the immediate area.

    Great communication, very helpful when we needed to change dates last minute. Loved everything about our two-day stay. We will definitely be back.

    One of the most amazing stays on the West Coast: private, secluded, surrounded by native bush with incredible views of the ocean. And did I mention the wood-fired hot tub!

    We had the best stay at the Fox Hut; this was the absolutely dream spot for our honeymoon. Our biggest regret was not staying for a few nights, but we will definitely be back!

    This was a true get-away-from-it-all experience. Just watching the sun go down and then taking a dip in the spa was a full recharge of the body and mind. Amazing!

    Fox Hut delivers. You are taken up a very secluded drive where you are rewarded with a stunning beach view and a perfect hut with everything you need to kick back and relax. Once you've lit the outdoor tub, put on the fluffy robes, and kick back with a good book or a cold wine. We'll be coming back again but for a longer stay.
