The views from our room of the waves pounding on the beach were impressive and at low tide hunting for jade was certainly different. The drift wood on the lovely sandy beach and the rock pools covered with mussels made for a real escape back to nature. Within easy access of Pancake Rocks, Jan runs a very eco-friendly B&B and her warm hospitality made our one night stop over most enjoyable. Our bedroom was well appointed with a pleasant if cool bathroom. The views and the proximity of the beach were a delight. Jan recommended a good place to eat and the following morning's breakfast was generous and offered a good choice. Jan advised us of options prior to catching the Trans Alpine Express and we left having spent a relaxing stay.

My husband and I spent two nights there during our honeymoon. Excellent room, very artistically done decor. The views of the beach and the walkway to the beach was spectacular. Bathroom was large with ample natural lighting and eco friendly products. Very cozy, comfortable. Above all, Jan is a spectacular host, we are vegetarians, and loved the way she did her best to cater to us. It is THE place to stay! We went there in September, this review posting is a little delayed!

What a breathtaking place to stay, overlooking the ocean. You can see the ocean while laying in bed and watching the sunset or sunrise. We had a beautiful stay. We enjoyed playing with Ziggy and strolling through the garden and to the beach. The breakfast was delicious with homemade pancakes (the only ones we got in whole New Zealand!). Thank you very much for great hospitality, Jan. We very much enjoyed staying with you.
We send you our best wishes from Germany.

Everything about this place is amazing. The most wonderful part is your host, Jen, who will give you excellent recommendations on scenic roads to take to get there and what to do once you leave. It is also excellently located right near Greymouth and Pancake Rock. The view was spectacular and the hospitality was even better. The rooms were well appointed and the breakfast served was delicious. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Thank you Jen for one of our most memorable stays!
