Drifting Sands Beachfront Accommodation

Drifting Sands is a cosy beachfront accommodation located in Hokitika on the stunning and rugged West Coast of New Zealand. Whether you're a single traveller, a couple, a family or a group of friends - book in and make yourself at home.

Snuggling in line-dried linen, the scent of fresh bread tickling your nose in the morning, the warm hug of a wooden fire while chilling on the couch, preparing a good meal to treat yourself after an exciting day...

This is Drifting Sands.

Just a 5-minute-walk from town you find a place to truly call home. Sleep on hotel grade mattresses, snuggled in feather duvets and quality linens. Enjoy delicious home-made bread in the morning and have a chat with fellow travellers at the large flitch dining table.

Relax at the fireplace in the cosy lounge with a free cup of tea or coffee. Listen to your favourite tunes on our bluetooth Marley speaker. Light a bonfire on the beach, jam a little and watch the sunset. Or get comfy on a Fatboy bean bag in our beach garden and watch a movie under the stars in the moonlight cinema.

Just lean back and relax, you’re home.

Drifting Sands is also available for exclusive rental. Please get in touch to find out more.
