About Us

We are a family owned business with pioneering links to the site. Our aim is to provide quality accommodation close to the centre of town and for our guests to enjoy the lifestyle and surroundings of Hokitika.

Sonja’s Great Great Grandfather Richard Stopforth lived on this land in the 1860’s. The land has been in the family ever since and our children John and Anne are the 6th generation to live here.
Anne senior is a 4th generation descendant of Richard Stopforth and grew up and spent most of her life on the site.

We both have an excellent local knowledge of the history, culture and natural heritage of the Coast.
This is a special place and we look forward to sharing it with you.
