The downstairs motel unit at Hannah's Homestead had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. We were warm & cosy & the king size bed was really comfy. Ruth was really friendly & keen to help make our stay as comfortable as possible. I was interested when reading the reviews before we visited that the most common "negative" comment... More

It is situated where it is, and I do have many negative comments about the location. However it is where it... More

Hannah’s Homestead Like the emptiness of the coast on which it is located, Hannah’s Homestead was at the ‘end of the known world’ or so it seemed arriving late on the evening of 17Mar2016; a cold, dark and blustery day which always threatened rain.

Before my arrival, I was wondering what lay inside this industrial steel themed homestead on this windy part of the world. At Haanah Clearing, a friendly personalised note on the unlocked door welcomed us at Hannah's Homestead. It was warm, spacious, very clean, had an excellent bed and large comfortable armchairs.

Thank you, Hardof, for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet your family. The Dolphins are really special, they are Hectors and very rare but play out there all the time. We also had a Penguin crossing the road down there last week which is fairly normal in this remote World Heritage Park. More

Stayed here after a paddling trip down the Waiatoto. Great place. Clean and our hosts Wayne and Ruth were lovely. The shower was the best shower I have had in my entire life and not because we just got back from the bush. Insane pressure and plenty of hot water for all of us to indulge. Cheers Wayne and Ruth...

Thank you for taking the time to reply. Yes we are 19km away from the shop, so good idea to bring food. We leave insect repellant in the motel unit but I always recommend long trousers, as that is how I avoid the sandflies. The view from the beach is amazing all the same. More
