A wonderful REST in The NEST!
Wendy and Fletch are great hosts. They have the Nest kitted out with everything you need. Wendy also makes delicious bread, coffee and treats. AMAZING!!! We made use of the fire pit to roast marshmallows and soaked in the outdoor bath. A great place to recharge surrounded by beautiful scenery. We highly recommend this as a place to stay. THANK YOU!!!
Not quite up for camping? Then try glamping! Surrounded by nature, in a tent with a bed, beautifully layered with a number of blankets as soft as clouds! There’s a table and chairs and a sofa AND a log burner! There’s also a bath - outside! You’re next to a river and surrounded by trees, it’s a calm oasis away from the hustle of day to day living. The hosts, Wendy & Fletch are most welcoming, always nearby if you need anything. We went hiking, biking, napping....we explored the nearby adventures - glow worms, tree top walks and the gorge to name a few! 3 nights was just enough to switch off and unwind. Also, Wendy roasts coffee onsite! Quite honestly the best coffee I’ve ever tasted! I’ve since gone online and bought a bag so make sure you buy before you leave! We would LOVE to return next year and highly recommend a visit! …
The perfect weekend getaway from Christchurch!
Wendy and Fletch were so welcoming and we felt like we were on holiday straight away. The nest is so cosy and all the extra touches make it very special. Marshmallows to toast over your outdoor fire looking over one of their little lakes, an outdoor bath under the stars, home baking on arrival and amazing coffee (roasted onsite by Wendy!) and even a loaf of hot fresh bread to wake you up in the morning, what more could you ask for! Definitely bike to Kaniere Lake up the Wilderness trail, it's so beautiful and an awesome slice of West Coast history. Hurunui Jacks is a wonderful spot and you will not regret visiting this place, in fact, you won't want to leave! Thanks, Wendy and Fletch, we will be back!
Magical Weekend Getaway
A beautiful, peaceful, magical setting. Perfect for a weekend getaway to explore Hokitika and surrounding area. We were greeted with a very warm welcome from Maureen and Dennis (the dog!). We loved the homely touches for breakfast, and the calm that The Nest had to offer. Thank you so much!
Really well thought out ‘glamping’ accommodation. Once we arrived we didn’t leave the beautiful, private campsite. I can’t think of anything that would have improved it. Total bliss. Thank you Maureen.
