Claire was an awesome host. She organised a restaurant for me and my mother for her birthday, after I asked her where to go the best for dinner in Hokitika. So nice and helpful! The house is really beautiful, clean, nice furniture and small so not mich people which is really nice. The breakfast was rally comfy. She provided good bread honey and marmalade and all people sat in the morning together talking. Afterwards she gave everyone tips where to go and stop on our further travelling.
All in all we were really happy to stay there and would come overtime again!

Claire was a fabulous host who made sure that my time in Hokitika was truly memorable. I was only there for 24 hours and had no transport but with Claire's help I was able to explore the local area and see more than I had thought was possible, including the Gorge, Dorothy Falls, Lake Kaniere and the Glow Worm Dell. I wish I had arranged to stay longer in this beautiful and fascinating place and will almost certainly return. The accommodation is well located with a garden path straight on to the beach - just watch the sun go down - wow! This was a great place to stay and Claire even provided transport to and from the airport. Definitely recommended.

Claire is an excellent host and really goes above and beyond to help her guests. The whole place is beautifully presented and really feels like you are welcomed into her home. There's free breakfast with homemade bread and jam which was delicious. The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the bed was the comfiest we've stayed in! As it's a shared bathroom, there's a predictable wait/queue for the bathroom in the morning so you have to pick your moment. We loved our stay here, would definitely recommend!

Claire is beyond fabulous. She goes above and beyond to make sure every one of her guests has exactly what they need to habe an amazing stay in Hokitika. Freshly baked bread daily for breakfast and a cozy atmosphere makes it really feel like a home away from home. If you have or havent been to Hokititka, Claire will take time to give each guest a walking map and suggestions on some marvelous places to go see. Highly recommend this for anyone and everyone looking for a home based stay!

The host could not have been more helpful. Rooms were clean and well presented but bathrooms were communal. Situated on the beach and just a short walk from the town the Drifting Sands is comfortable and convenient.
