Ash House is a cozy "Glamping Hostel" cabin. The (private) room has a double bed partitioned from 2 sets of bunk beds. Great for families! Attached to shared bathroom (2 showers, 4 toilets), and fully equipped kitchen. Swimming pool access & WiFi

The space

The Ash House located at The Staging Post is rustic and full of character, a bit like your hosts Linda and Mike. We aim to make you as comfortable as possible and recognise we're not the Hilton Hotel so bring a sense of humour and call us with any question.

Guest access

You'll be able to access short walking tracks in the Staging Post area as well as our swimming pool and stage area if you're looking for some peace and quiet. We are a rural retreat located just 45 minutes from Kaikoura and 55 minutes from Hanmer Springs, and the Waipara wine district is about 45 minutes south.

Interaction with guests

We'll pop in every day (trying not to disturb you, so when you go out on a day trip, or around 10 - 11am daily) to check the bathroom and kitchen area supplies and ensure all is safe and well (hot plates off, tv off if you're out etc). Having lived and worked in the area for over 30 years we're able to let you know about other local attractions that make ideal half day and day trips, or the best place to hide and read a book, or even lend you a spare yoga mat.

Other things to note

All running water on the property is filtered and UV treated.

The Staging Post is a rural retreat with plenty of bird call sounds at dawn and dusk. This atmosphere is enjoyed best with a quiet drink in the early evening. Loud parties, loud music and loud people are not encouraged (though loud laughter is as welcome as local bird calls). We only allow pets if the owners have contacted us first and read the "pooch policy" at (URL HIDDEN) carefully and will not allow any dog owners to stay without having read and complied with those conditions at least 2 weeks prior to their arrival. We'd prefer it if you didn't smoke at all, and smoking inside never allowed.

Absolutely delightful! The Ash house exceeded our expectations and was a lovely place to stay. Linda was kind and welcoming and even gave us some great suggestions for things to do on our way there. We enjoyed a lovely walk in the beautiful area in the morning.
