the history

Experience the real Hokitika -
beautiful heritage apartments

Our story really begins back in 1864, when Maori found gold near the Taramakau River while looking for pounanu (greenstone). News soon spread, and the area’s population exploded. As the township developed from hastily pitched canvas tents to closely built houses, the need grew for a fire station to meet the ever-present threat of fire. Fire stations served the township in the years that followed, manned by brave crews and led by some of the fire chiefs honoured in the names chosen for each of our apartments. Our building was the fourth and longest-serving Hokitika Fire Station. During your stay you’ll find constant reminders of our proud history.
