After torrential rain through the Buller Gorge we finally arrived at Hokitika on the West Coast of NZ just on dusk after an uncomplicated trip from Picton. Richards Drive is the first street on the right off the main road and Shining Star is the first driveway after crossing the railway lines.
The log cabins right beside the beach are delightful, warm, snug and comfortable. Everything we needed was right there and the reception was equally warm and welcoming in such dour weather.
The rugged West Coast is exhilarating and the scenery wild and magnificent - especially the mountains after the heavy snowfall we experienced.
Shining Star Beach Cabins are a real treat and we have no hesitation in recommending them. We have stayed there twice now and plan to do so again when travelling down the coast to Wanaka.
