This is another small and fine hostel. A handful of double rooms share a spacious kitchen/lounge area, plus there's a specially designed toilet and shower facility nearby (and a in-house bathroom for night time use). You get there from the main SH6 on a short and well maintained gravel road with lots of parking just in front of the house.... More

The most unforgettable place we have stayed so far for all the right reasons. Interesting and charming hosts are very helpful in every way . Plenty of accommodation and good facilities in the main lodge and absolutely delightful cabins separate from the house, good kitchen and atmosphere very conducive to conversation between people staying there. Some composting toilets and showers... More

Traversing through an unmade road we saw the wooden placard denoting the Eco lodge. Rain was bucketing down but with each swipe of our window wipers our excitement grew... Our car made a left hand turn and we were greeted by a beautiful wooden house. It was surrounded by well manicured flora and ample parking space. After unpacking in our... More

Best value in New Zealand. Cozy cabin with stained glass panel in door, interesting path through forest to river, and great sociable host. Very nice kitchen in lodge. Self-sufficient off-the-grid but easy to find.

Highly recommended by friends who discovered the lodge years ago we stopped for a night on our way from Franz Josef Glacier to Abel Tasman NP. Wish we'd have had more time to enjoy this peaceful spot. We were warmly welcomed by Grae who offered some salad&veggies from their garden so we had a delicious dinner - best Ruccola we... More

Do yourself a favor and don't crash at Beaconstone just for a night. Take your time and enjoy this peaceful eco-gem for at least one or two days. Discover the river track close by and take a dip, enjoy the cozy lounge area and make some dinner in the well equipped kitchen, sleep in most comfortable beds and just relax... More

Beaconstone Eco Lodge is a lovely quiet retreat for travellers who are interested in all things environmental and want a homely, clean and truly beautiful place to stay while exploring the west coast. We stayed 2 nights only but loved the peace and quiet, the bush, the very friendly and helpful owners, Grae and Nancy and just being there was... More
