About Us

Hide and Seek is a small but perfectly formed accommodation experience. Your hosts Jacqui, Andy and our Spoodle, Wookie, are here all the way to ensure your stay is comfortable, fun and memorable.

Hailing from London and Edinburgh we both travelled extensively before arriving on these shores 20 years ago and, having lived in a few different locations in the South Island, decided to settle on the West Coast due to it's stark natural beauty and diversity. We venture out into the bush and mountains whenever we get a chance and will be more than happy to point you in the right direction with tips and suggestions while you are here or for your onward adventures in New Zealand.

Jacqui, formerly a diamond setter in Hatton Gardens, London and Yard Manager for Stonar School for Girls in Bath, England, worked for 5 years for a South Island based guiding company focusing on high end backcountry trips for a predominantly American client base.

Andy, a qualified chef, worked for over 20 years in a range of roles from small restaurants to large 5 Star international hotels and resorts in Europe, Australia and New Zealand .He has cooked for various celebrities, Heads of State and Royalty.

We will do our utmost to ensure that your stay at Hide and Seek lives up to and hopefully surpasses your expectations.
