Hurunui Jacks is situated on the West Coast of the South Island, just 12 kilometres from the centre of Hokitika, and metres from the spectacular West Coast Wilderness cycle trail.
Hurunui Jacks is an unforgettable glamping experience. Your luxury canvas tent rests on a private spot beside the Kaniere River, nestled amongst ancient virgin forest. Surrounded by National Park and Conservation land - it's 15 acres of total peace and tranquility - and the perfect couples get-away.
A paradise for wildlife - bush robins, fantails, tuis, bellbirds, and native wood pigeons - flit through the moss-covered rimu, matai and totara trees.
The campsite consists of a large and roomy canvas tent, with a wood-burning stove. A fully covered and enclosed camp kitchen and bathroom is set just a few metres away. You can either cook on the gas rings - or try camp-style cooking over an open fire.
Enjoy a glass of wine and a soak in an outdoor bath under the stars. Then, tucked up in your comfortable bed, between linen sheets and under a goose down duvet, you'll be able to lie back and relax to the sound of the river… Lose yourself in the West Coast wilderness. Enjoy the peace… and the ethereal feeling of being surrounded by ancient bush, in a truly unique landscape.
Bring your own food and cook using the gas rings or hotplate over the brazier. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you will need in the camp kitchen.
The nearest supermarket for supplies is the New World supermarket in Hokitika, approximately 12 kms away (15 minutes drive time).
Alternatively, treat yourselves to some of the great local nosh! Fat Pipis Pizza has the best pizza ever and Porky's Takeaways are rumoured to have the best fish and chips on the Coast.
For coffee connoisseurs, Ritual and Ramble has the best coffee in town and lots of healthy food. Plus the best cheese scones! The Hokitika Sandwich company also do a mean bottomless single-origin coffee from Havana and were just voted best toasted-sammie in NZ. Your host, Wendy also roasts her own coffee on the property and you'll find this in the camp kitchen for your use. You can't get much fresher than that!
