Welcome to Lake Kaniere Homestay

Lake Kaniere is a quiet peaceful piece of paradise inland from Hokitika in the South Island of New Zealand. A twenty minute drive from the coast brings you to the jewel of the lake with backdrop of mountains. It's a place for activity and rest, recreation and relaxation.

Lake Kaniere Homestay overlooks the northern shore of the lake, not 50 meters away. The house is set in native bush, on a cul-de-sac, lakeside road with very little traffic and great views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
Grant owns and operates Lake Kaniere Homestay and has lived in this paradise for many years. He is a true West Coast character and opens his home to holiday makers and cyclists to show people some good west coast hospitality.

Independence however is the key to this homestay. While a light breakfast is supplied, guests will need to provide their own tucker for evening meals and lunches. For cyclists, Grant will collect and pay for your tucker that you have requested by sending him a precise, detailed, unable to be misinterpreted list. You can reimburse him for this before you leave.
