Fox Hut is set on a coastal clifftop property on the famous Great Coast Highway, halfway between Greymouth and Westport and just a seven-minute drive from Punakaiki (site of the 'Pancake Rocks').
Fox Hut is the 'sister hut' to Woodpecker Hut, the original hut on the property, made famous by its incredible views and simple, but lovely rustic vibe.
Fox Hut is modelled off a pitched roof gold miners hut with an enclosed lean-to kitchen and sitting area. Far from the basic hut design of yesteryear though, Fox hut oozes rustic luxury. Recycled timber lined walls are accompanied by rich velvet armchairs. Accents of brass, plush floor rugs and sheepskins add to the feel of quality and comfort. Huge glass windows frame the captivating ocean view.
A wood-fired cedar hot tub is set into the deck at the front of the hut - the perfect place to sit and soak - and watch the sun go down on the wild West Coast.
Winter or Summer, Fox Hut is the perfect couples retreat. Romantic, private and close to nature - you'll leave this place rested and reconnected.
Eating & Drinking
Fox Hut is self-catering. Just bring your own food and drink, and cook meals using the BBQ and facilities provided in your hut kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need.
If you want a break from cooking at any stage, Punakaiki is just an 8-minute drive away and Charleston is approximately 12 minutes away. Both have some (limited) cafes and restaurants to choose from.
Supermarkets for food shopping can be found in either Westport (40-minute drive) or Greymouth (60-minute drive), so best to stock up before you arrive!
