The Okarito Beach House is a real haven, away from the main tourist trail. It is situated within a stone's throw of dramatic West Coast beaches, close to the glacier township of Franz Josef.We have two lodges available, each with three en suite double or twin rooms and one private self contained chalet. Linen and bathroom amenities are included and WIFI internet and laundry is available to all guests for free. There is no shop in the village so be sure to bring food so you can make use of our fully equipped kitchens.

Internet was really slow ,(if any) no television, fridge and freezer were hardly cold. More like a low budget backpacker place. The common area were nice and the kitchen had what you'd needed. Expected more !More
