About us

Drifting Sands is a Beachfront Retreat located in Hokitika on the untamed West Coast of New Zealand. Nestled on the beach and flanked by the grand Southern Alps, here you can experience both in such close proximity. Offering an unrivalled ‘home away from home’ experience we are just a five minute walk from the town centre. We share all our favourite spots and tips for a bespoke tailored time while visiting our cool little town. We pride ourselves on our quality linens, hotel grade mattresses, pillows and real feather duvets ensuring a sumptuous and well rested sleep. Dine at one of our recommended restaurants or prepare a banquet for your family in our fully equipped kitchen. Relax by the fire in our cosy lounge or chill out in the private beach garden with a bonfire listening to the roar of the crashing waves just metres away. The sunset on our front lawn will take your breath away as it lights up the sky and says goodnight dropping slowly into the Tasman Sea. After dark stroll to the glow worm dell, light a bonfire on the beach or sink into our stargazing hot tub under the milky way. You will understand why just one night is not enough. Leave fully rested, rejuvenated and fuelled for your onward adventures. Your satisfaction is at the heart of our every offering… This is Drifting Sands.

Drifting sands is one of the coolest beach houses I've seen. I wish we stayed more than one night! Claire is very friendly and welcoming, she has put so much thought and effort into making her place one to remember. We will be back!

Magical beach location

Perfect beach location. Can walk to town and glow worm dell. Beautiful sunsets can be soaked from outdoor bath, BBQ or fire. Fantastic vibe with up-cycle boutique at it’s best. Worth every penny. Plan to return.

Fantastic time away

We had a lovely short family break with the beach at the doorstep. Lovely and thoughtful decor, very fitting to the beach house. Great to be within 10 minutes walking distance to town and restaurants. The best part was being able to have our dogs with us as well :-)

Uniquely held and cared for by Clare at Drifting Sands

3 nights stay as part of a 50km per day West Coast Wilderness Experience, where any and every need and comfort is heard. Exceptional hosting, attention to detail, an aesthetic that takes Hokatika to the world and back again. Our rooms were luxurious from linen to design, the welcome heart felt. We felt that nothing was left wanting. Thank you Clare for setting the stage for 3 perfect nights sleep.

Absolutely bliss

Absolute beachfront, private with accommodation that has been loving restored to complement the beauty of the local area. The host is wonderful and her creativity comes alive here. All amenities are taken care of, with a hint of luxury thrown in. A must stay.
