Room was great with amazing views. The outside bath was very quirky and fun. Loved the stoned floor shower too. Make sure to try the horse riding over the road (run by the owners). Great fun and Neil is a laugh a minute.
View from bed over Punakaiki to sea. Fabulous location
lack of nearby restaurants. Only pub available down the road with quite poor foodas restaurant over road would not take advanced booking or consider us as we were not staying at the resort
Cute cottage accommodations that were private and had an amazing view of the ocean! Loved the option to grab DVDs at check-in and have a relaxing evening in the cottage. Perfect location to stop on a West coast NZ drive - only a few minutes from the Pancake rocks.
The view, the staff
Charming cottage, lush scenery. We could hear the waves from our windows. We stayed 6 places during our NZ trip and this was our favorite.
The only thing I didn't like was the sand flies!
Perfect getaway for my last overnight stay at the west coast! Wish I could have stayed a night longer. Super friendly and accommodating owners. I highly recommend it to anyone.
That the internet connection was a little too weak...but not a big issue for this particular stay.
We could enjoy the seaview in this quiet and private cottage. We joined the horse trekking in the forest led by Neil. It was fun!
Location, view, veranda, comfort and cleanliness. Staff very pleasant. Beach nearby.
Lack of any real kitchen facilities. There was no cooker, microwave or hotplates, so you could not cook a meal. Dependent on eating out or takeaway. Fridge very small.
Quite unique units. Owner was very nice and helpful. Comfortable bed & nice views. Guest laundry was a couple of dollars. Free movies from reception.
Wi-Fi was restrictive.
Great size suites/apartments with a great view
The view was nice
very pricey even for Punakaiki. right across the street and therefor noisy. When the trucks passed the road, it felt like an earthquake. Cheap synthetic linen make sleeping uncomfortable. In this price range ($230+) one could expect decent bedding.
We loved the tranquil environment, the bird song and the view. The room was lovely and perfect for what we needed.
Location obviously superb, Loved the Gorgeous well designed cottage - décor delightful and very practical, blending sensitively with the environment The shower
Great place to stay and relax. The owners went out of their way to help.
Lovely comfortable bed & lovely hot water for shower
Loved the garden very comfortable beds and good showers
Just needed to be aware of the small details ie soap toilet paper etc
Room was well presented. Enjoyed the Out Door Bath while watching the sun set over the Tasman Ocean.
This was a beautiful and romantic spot, with very accommodating owners. Our only regret was that we stayed just one night. The allure of this place is difficult to describe in words but it has a mystique that you will feel.
Fantastic views, friendly staff
The sand flies but that can't be helped!
Warm welcome, friendly owner. Nothing too much trouble. My daughter went on helicopter trip organised by the owner at breakfast as we discussed it with other guests. I would highly recommend the Rata suite. Supper at a shack nearby on the beach was so fresh and tasty, fish caught that day!
Having to leave after only one night!
Thanks a lot for the very nice stay!
Sandflies were not so nice as the guest…they tortured us!
We had difficulty in finding this motel in pouring rain. The address wasn't much help.
The views from our studio were simply amazing. The balcony was an ideal spot to maximise the wonderful viewsof the sea. The interior was spacious and very tastefully designed.
very nice cottage, sea view, nice terrace, parking lot right infront the cottage, very close to pancake rocks
In room facilities and dark sky. The Beach Hut just across the road for excellent fish dinner and reasonable price.
Nothing to dislike.
