This stay was so nice because our hosts, Liz and Terry, genuinely cared about their guests and wanted to get to know us and make our stay comfortable. A private refrigerator for guests filled with juice, water and wine, fresh yogurt and pastries, chocolate bars on our pillows, along with champagne and appetizers on the back porch with our hosts...

My husband, 18 year old son and I stayed for two nights in early January and we thoroughly enjoyed Liz and Terry's hospitality. The bed and breakfast has extremely comfortable beds with luxury quality linens. Everything is spotlessly clean, fresh and even sweet-smelling (mild lavender.) Our two bedrooms shared an otherwise private bath (there is an additional bedroom and bath... More

Having toured the South Island my wife and I agreed that Whitestones was the best accommodation of our trip. Liz was a fantastic host and her daily homebaking was a lovely treat to come home to after exploring the local area. The idyllic peaceful setting was a welcome retreat to re-charge the batteries. The Luxmore room was beautifully appointed with... More

My husband and I agreed that this was the highlight of our NZ trip. Peaceful with very comfortable facilities, it was perfect. Only regret was not being able to extend our overnight stay to 3 nights! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a charming and luxurious stay. We would definitely return.

My husband and I just had a beautiful stay in the Luxmore room, and photos cannot convey how spotlessly clean and fresh the room and bathroom are, or the expansive beauty of the surrounding countryside. Liz and Terry are marvelous hosts-breakfasts are large and delicious; the perfect start to long, active days, and they were so helpful in helping us... More

Only stayed 1 night at whitestones- would recommend staying longer if you can. Only a shot drive from Te Anau, has beautiful views all around and stunning gardens full of birds. Liz and Terry are great hosts- welcoming and knowledgeable. We took their recommendation for dinner (Redcliff ) and it was spot on. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable... More

Liz and Terry represent New Zealand's hospitality at its very best. They clearly love what they do, and it shows. They're very welcoming and will gladly show you around their garden and tell you about life in Te Anau or let you enjoy a quiet, undisturbed stay. We really appreciated Liz's graciousness in accomodating our dietary restrictions and our very... More

Stayed for a night either side of walking the Hollyford track as we had to be in Te Anau. Although 10 minutes drive outside of town, oh so worth the stay! We also had one night in town and the difference was marked. Liz and Terry have created a warm,luxurious peaceful place to stay with a taste of the country... More

Thank you Liz & Terry for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home & property. It was a bonus that your B&B is 10kms out of town, as the peace & quiet, stunning garden & views, make this place a little piece of heaven away from the tourist crowds of Te Anau. The excellence of the accommodation is equal to... More

We arrived late at 9pm. Liz and Terry welcomed us warmly at the door to their beautiful home with a bottle of wine and exquisite home made citrus cake! It's home at first sight to us! It's a 70 acre deer farm with amazingly beautiful mountain views! Liz's breakfast was gorgeous. The everyday freshly made cake / sweets were on... More
