Thanks for the nice room we were offered in the Code Time Lodge. We stayed in the Black Sands Unit which is a pretty new and self contained unit.
The unit has some wooden elements which gives it a cool nature-like look.

Nice breakfast ingredients were provided in our unit and so we could prepare us a lovely meal.
Dinner options are available on the website and could be pre-booked. The Greek salad was really good!

A lovely warm welcome,with beautiful breakfast left for us.

The accommodation is amazing with a really good kitchen and seating area, which is spacious and bright.

Private bedroom overlooks the estuary and you can see and hear the birds.

Architecturally interesting design in modern wood and amazing reclaimed pieces.

Would highly recommend a stay.

About the neighbourhood
Okarito is a small seaside village situated just 20-25 minutes drive from Franz Josef Glacier. It sees more sunshine hours than inland and generally has much finer weather than many expect of the West Coast.

The village is a nature lovers dream with many great walking tracks, fishing, kayaking, Kiwi spotting (the Rowi species is native to Okarito & can only be found here) At the right tide you can take a walk along the beach and collect mussels off the rocks to take home for an appetiser. If you get down to the 5 mile lagoon it is one of the best views you will see of the Southern Alps & the jewel in the crown, the Franz Josef Glacier. The Kotuku (White Heron) come to the area to breed, look out for the distinctive marks they leave in the sand & soil to see if any may be ar...
