The best time and the hospitality was amazing. Looking forward to our next visit. The spa was lovely and meals outstanding, we even managed to catch some whitebait. Perfect place to relax at this adult retreat with amazing sea views. Highly recommended.

We had a one night stay with Elizabeth and Selwyn and just loved it. A beautiful location with a genuine, hearty B&B welcome. We had both dinner and breakfast cooked by Elizabeth and both were fantastic. They are lovely, welcoming and generous hosts. Go and stay!!!

This is an awesome place to stay, superb view of the sea to observe the sunset and moon set, absolutely the best place for an excellent evening meal with deserts to please the palate, walks along the beach, fossick for Pounamu, swim in the river, and soak in the spa. The rooms are very clean and spacious with stunning views. The beds are very comfortable ensuring an excellent night’s sleep. There’s even a display of Awatuna beach stones made into pendants that can be purchased, so you can take a little piece of the beach home with you. Elizabeth and Selwyn are excellent hosts and have created a very special place. I can recommend a stay of multiple nights to enjoy this place. I was having such a great time that I totally forgot to take photos!

Thank you so much for your awesome review Margot, we really appreciate you taking the time to post one! It was our pleasure having you stay with us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and our homegrown, home-cooked food and gift shop. We do have some beautifully made jewelry which is made extra special as many pieces are made from stones we have collected right here on the beach! We look forward to seeing you again, next time you visit the West Coast. Cheers Elizabeth and Selwyn

My son and I stayed three nights at this very comfortable and peaceful lodge. Elizabeth, daughter of an Italian restaurateur has strong passion for cooking and hospitality. Spaghetti Bolognese for instance, ordered from the extensive menu,(orders in by 4:30pm) involves Elizabeth grinding lean rump steak, making egg pasta by hand (using her own chooks' eggs), making tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes. If one orders pan fried fish Selwyn gets it fresh from a fisherman. Canapé and drinks on the verandah as the sun sets over the Tasmansetting sun include Elizabeth-made crackers and dips, as well as Blackball salami and local cheese. Of course the ice-cream is home made! The whitebait is from the neighbouring creek which also has eels that can be fed, and which is traversed in Selwyn's "Mad Max" amphibian as part of a pounamu hunt. Everything is done with enthusiasm and expertise.

What an amazing review! Thank you so much, we were delighted to host you! We loved having you both here for 3 days and enjoyed sharing conversations over sundowner drinks and canapes and hearing about your days' exploring the West Coast. It's wonderful your son could take some fantastic photos while here. It was an absolute pleasure cooking for you and taking you over to the beach in Mad Max, it's lots of fun for us as well. We hope to see you again next time you visit the West Coast. Cheers Elizabeth and Selwyn
