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

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
