Lake Kaniere is a quiet peaceful piece of paradise inland from Hokitika and in an ideal situation for a stay at the end of Day Two of the West Coast Rail trail Cycle Ride.
By car it is a 20 minute drive from Hokitika to a jewel of a lake with mountain backdrop. It is an ideal place for both recreation and for relaxation.

Lake Kaniere Homestay overlooks the northern shore of the Lake, not 50 meters away. The house is set in native bush on a quiet no exit street with great views of the lake and very little traffic.
