Te Nikau Retreat Backpacker Punakaiki Reviews
THE place to relax Nov 27, 2009
I HAVE TO talk to you about this place.
I stayed there 2 weeks like woofer, so i can already tell you that it s really clean !
But the most important is the context.
This "backpacker" (because i think that it s a little more..) is located on the West Coast of the south island, around Punakaiki, small town which is famous for the Pancakes Rocks (3 kms only).
At 5 mns from a beautiful beach, the sea will be the only sound disturbing your relaxation !
And you will have the choice between several lovely houses integrated in the bush, from a bed in a dorm until a cottage.
You will wake up each morning with the smell from the homemade bread and muffins (Yes, i made it too!).
Of course, you have to stay at least several days to enjoy the place and the activities (kayaking on the beautiful Porari river, beaches, tracks..).
Finally you won't resist at the 2 lovely wekas (kind of birds who can't fly, like kiwis) who stay around to beg some food..
