Stayed one night with family, and our hosts Nicky and Jeff could not have been more helpful. A cot was provided for our baby son, and the cottage was lovely and warm. The area and scenery are lovely, although as the previous reviewer mentioned, you are in the middle of nowhere so stock up with supplies beforehand. The cottage is a stones throw from the beach, with mountain views just behind. For an idyllic "getting away from it all" stay, I would definitely recommend this place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hunts Beach is located 35km south of Fox Glacier and 70km north of Haast. Hunts Beach is set in the backdrop of the Southern Alps with views of both Mount Cook and Tasman. Hunts Beach is a secluded spot but is a popular destination for local fishermen who come to fish for whitebait. Brown trout kahawhai and many other sea species. We offer fully self contained units and provide breakfast for our guests should they wish. Fox Glacier is the nearest township from Hunts Beach where there are many restaurants and a general store. The Paringa Salmon Farm Cafe is situated 20 minutes south and is open during the day only.We are happy to accommodate both those here for a short stay or the angler, hunter or traveller who wish to stay for a longer period. ... more less
