Such an awesome place to stay, great amenities, comfortable beds, nice & cosy, such a tranquil setting & the outdoor bath was a great hit with the kids, we will definitely be back, thanks Barry 😊
What a magic place this is, the kind of place you don’t want to tell too many people about! Set beneath a wonderland of towering mountains and hills covered in jungle like natives and tropical greens I really felt like we had arrived in a pacific island. The beach is a 5 min walk and you’ll most probably have it to yourself. Such a cute wee cottage tastefully renovated with a functional kitchen and modern bathroom including a front loader. The bedrooms are small with comfy beds, the living room is great with a stunning outlook to the mountains, and the ocean (we even spotted dolphins surfing the waves) across lush green paddocks with cattle grazing which our wee boy just loved. We ate outside on the wee balcony every night watching sunset. The cottage sits on a huge section fronted by agapanthus which must be stunning when flowering, a rolling green lawn backed by huge trees alive with birds. The outdoor bath is deep and filled by the house hot water and the stars are amazing! Although we didn’t use it there’s a huge sleep out with another queen bed, several couches, TV a huge deck with a BBQ and view and inside plenty of space for socialising if you were in a group with bad weather. We are seriously considering coming back for a family BD as this place is special and ticks all the boxes for a peaceful, comfortable getaway on the wonderful West Coast. I’m sure it’d be just as good in the cooler months with the open fire roaring too. Only 13 mins drive to Punakaiki and under 4 hrs to ChCh just bring plenty of food, milk etc as Punakaiki has no provisions and Greymouth is 25 mins away. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
