I have always wanted to live in a log cabin and I loved Shining Star! The rooms were clean and comfortable. A few farm animals dotted around the property made it feel like a retreat. The staff were friendly and helpful. An easy walk to the beach to watch one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. If we get a chance to go back to Hokitika we will definitely be staying here again.

I am the manager. This is a flat-out lie. I was away from the property for the past week, getting married. Please do not return here.

I liked the trees,grass beach access,comfortable beds and dog friendly. Really liked the cabin'. It was well equipped and ascetically pleasant. A shelf to create more bench space in the kitchenette while cooking would be good. Good pan and pots. Could not use both at same time as both too big to fit together on the elements. An umbrella for the deck would be an asset as it was too hot to sit out in the afternoon and evenings on the lovely sunny days. The TV was small and not as many channels as free to air TV. A great place to stay just a few practical things one notices when staying longer than 1 to 2 days.

This was a fantastic property, the only problem was that we didn’t have more time to enjoy the area! The glow worms opposite the property are also well worth a visit! The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome!!
