Te Pahika was built in the early 1900's and operated as a guards van ( train carriage) until 1963 when it crashed at Moana.
It has now been beautifully and sympathetically restored to offer an unique accommodation experience. The main carriage houses the bedroom and dressing area overlooking the pond while the newly built "station " houses the fully equipped kitchen and modern bathroom and links to the carriage by a large semi covered deck (platform)
If you are looking for somewhere unique where you can unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet you will not be disappointed.
Te Pahika is set in the middle of our 4 acre property at the end of the pond with a native bush backdrop.
Te Pahika does not have a TV. An ideal opportunity to enjoy a good book and perhaps a glass of wine or cup of coffee while you soak up the peace and quiet.
A few board games, cards, books and magazines are provided.
New for the 2018/2019 season we now have a rustic outdoor bath area for you to enjoy.
We are ideally located as a base for exploring the West Coast or as a convenient stop en route to other destinations. We are 15 minutes drive South of Greymouth and 25 minutes drive North of Hokitika.
