This is probably one of the best places we have stayed in our own country. It is in a perfect location just out of Karamea. Three very well appointed double bedrooms with ensuite. Very private. A large shared kitchen, dining area and sitting area and a separate TV room. Breakfast is provided with fruit, cereal, toast etc and always a... More

This is a great place, just outside the small village of Karamea about an hours drive from Westport. The lodge is set back from the coast and has a great view across the garden to the lagoon, especially when the tide is in. The bush and hills provide the backdrop. Our room and the living area were very comfortable and... More

By far the best place we stayed during our 3-week trip to the South Island. This is a "self-contained" accommodation, but also includes a great breakfast too. We stayed two nights (and wish we had stayed longer). The lodge is truly amazing ... three guest rooms, washing machine, but the common room/kitchen was beautiful. We grilled a steak on the... More

"The best kept secret of the west coast" was the advertisement for Karamea, the Opara-Basin, and the limestone arches, and we (German) met a lot of New Zealander's who had not heard of it yet! It is still 50 km north of Westport on a very winding road but it's definitely worth the trip! The lodge is amazing, spacious, very... More

Karamea is literally the end of the road north of Westport. The lodge is a house and the owners live in another house 50 meters away. The setting is very pleasant and quiet. All of the rooms and the public areas have great views of the ocean. On the first of my two night stay I was the only person... More

Peaceful,elegant beach house. Our families rented the entire lodge for five nights after Christmas. The property was immaculate, new and modern. The deck opens onto a large lawn and then a tidal estuary and Tasman Sea. The common room and kitchen are very well equipped. Our hosts (Jenny and Mark) were very helpful - arranging horse back riding and dinner... More
