Our stay at this backpackersecolodge was great. What a peacefull place. Cosy rooms, well equipped kitchen. Well situated in nature not far from pancake rocks. Owners are very helpfull and interested. (concerned on flat tire... But we reached next tyre station without damage) Nice eco-founding is the outdoor toilet. Place to go! Thx, Pieter.

I stayed here with a friend for three nights and fell in love with it. So peaceful, cosy and beautifully decorated with thoughtful touches. I came away to get some writing done and Beaconstone was the perfect location. Grae & Nancy were so personable and spun some great yarns. I'd love to stay here again!

I stayed here for 2 nights and really loved the peace and quiet I enjoyed here. Nancy and Grae were very friendly and helpful. The Eco lodge is off the energy grid which is excellent and means the greedy power companies don't get a penny of your money. All power is supplied via solar panels. Grae and Nancy have taken...

This Eco Lodge was recommended to us by friends who visited in 2013. It is definitely unmissable although we, unfortunately, only had one night there - silly us! The lodge was very welcoming. It was built about 14 years ago by owners, Nancy and Grae and is a "state-of-the-art" eco experience. It's only powered by solar panels and gas. They've... More

Wow what an amazing place - Beaconstone Eco Lodge was built by the owners Nancy and Grae with so much attention to the environment. The Lodge is very comfortable with lovely futon beds and spacious living area. There are walking tracks through the bush down to the river and the sunsets are incredible. Nancy and Grae are fantastic hosts making... More

We stayed here for one night on our long drive from Golden Bay to Greymouth. It was wild, wet weather. The lodge is cosy and very clean. The hosts Grey and Nancy have built with great attention to sustainability. Importantly you feel like guests rather than a source of income. When I left my reading glasses in the room they... More

There was heavy rain when I reached to this Lodge in the middle of native bush. When I entered, I found a cosy place in a very tranquil and peaceful environment. This Eco-Lodge has been built by the owners themselves and you can feel that everything has been made with love and attention to detail. Nancy and Grae are very... More

We had the Mountain View Hut reserved for two nights. This is a large, attractive room, simple yet extremely comfortable.The facilities are located a minute's walk away- either a bathroom with a running water "night toilet" and shower in the lodge, or the very modern and clean composting toilets close by. We selected this private cabin before we knew how... More

Wonderful stay in the mountain lodge. They really should charge more, this place is amazing. They have just built a garden lodge too, which also looks beautiful. Bear in mind there aren't too many places to eat or drink in the area so you must bring your own supplies but the kitchen is very well equiped and immaculate. And this... More

A beautiful, tranquil place, run by two of the nicest hosts you're ever likely to come across, Grae and Nancy. It doesn't really feel like a backpackers, it feels more like your own home. Spotlessly clean, with excellent cooking facilities. Plentiful hot water and electricity. It proves that eco-lodges can be efficient and don't have to be expensive. I hope... More
