Wonderful hosts with our one night stay near Murchison. They helped us redirect our travel plans which saved us a ton of $$!!! Thank you so much. The breakfast was amazing. I required no food for the remainder of the day due to the generous portions. Beautiful grounds and wonderful hike at the edge of their property!

We were a group of three including my dad, and my 21 month old daughter. I found Awapiriti Lodge at the last minute after deciding to return to Christchurch via Murchison. From the first moment Maudie & Dean made us feel very welcome in their home. They took my active little one in their stride, and even had some children's... More

What a wonderful retreat this is, wish we had time to stay longer. Maudie and Dean were great hosts. Venison stew and nashi and rhubarb crumble for dinner. Yum. Breakfast was abundant and delicious. Rooms great, even if the ensuites are a tad small. Gardens glorious.

A last minute organised stay which wasn't a problem to get organised. UNfortunately were too late for dinner, but Dean's beer collection was the best substitute. Amazing home-made beers. Clean and warm. Fully catered for. Varied breakfast with fresh juices and home-made just about everything. Humble hosts and honest, down-to-earth people. Ideal one-night stay on the way South.

A deer farm tucked away about 15 km from Murchison with a lovely garden and orchard. The bedroom was pristine and quaint with doors opening to the garden. Breakfast was superb with venison sausages, Boris bacon and homemade jams with a selection of teas served on beautiful crockery. The attention to detail was clearly evident and the company extremely pleasant.

Maudie and Dean made us feel very welcome at their lovely farm. We stayed with our little boy, and he loved seeing all the animals and got to pick fresh raspberries to go with his breakfast. We ate Maudie's delicious cooked dinner both nights, the puddings in particular were excellent. Boris wasn't in the mood to talk much when we... More

We stayed in this B&B family home on our 4 week honeymoon touring NZ. This B&B is well hidden from the main road and accessed via, at first glance, appears to be an old wooden bridge, this leads onto a large open expanse of land with a track leading to the property where there is ample parking. We were met... More

Now this is a real find. A farm tucked away on its own, 16k out of Murchison, reached by its own bridge across the Maruia river, and with complete tranquility and wonderful mountain scenery. And a wonderful welcome from Maudie and Dean, a couple who clearly love having guests in their home. You might also get to meet the two... More
