Let me first start with the host herself Jan, one of the best things about Breakers. She is such a warm, friendly helpful soul, she instantly made us feel welcome. But her outstanding service did not just start when we arrived, it started long before we even reached NZ. Jan went out of her way to advise us on our whole itinerary, as we were unsure how long to spend at the glaciers and Mt Cook, and wanted to fit Arthurs Pass in somewhere. Her advice was spot on, and thanks to her recommendation we did the half day glacier walk which was awesome. She really cared that we would have a good time throughout our whole honeymoon, not just whilst we stayed at Breakers. She also gave us lots of advice about things to see on the way, and that we should see Punakaiki Rocks at high tide. When we saw them it was low tide as our drive took us much longer than anticipated, so do time it well. After a very long journey, we were welcomed at her home. She got us freshly baked cheese scones straightaway, and made us a pizza for dinner, all much needed. Not only that, she gave us a free upgrade to an annexe room, which was spacious and had floor to ceiling views of the wild West Coast, which is just stunning. It was coming out of winter (September) and she had the heaters in there so we warmed up nicely, whilst watching the waves from our room. Breakfast was lovely too, and once again she went out of her way to advise on our itinerary. Thanks to her we also took the scenic shorter route back to Christchurch Airport at the end of our holiday (route 73). She also gave us stop-offs for our onward journey to Fox. Jan, thanks so much for a lovely stay, we loved you, Breakers and NZ. We do hope to come back one day.
