We stayed in Blowholes View. The view is just amazing. The room is a generous size with good kitchen area, a comfortable sofa to take in the view and a seperate bedroom. There's also a nice verandah with table and chairs to enjoy that amazing view. It's very private and you even have your own carport to park under, right...

This was a nice little beach style cabin, we chose the blowholes views which was great! Although not new it was still clean and comfortable. Maybe call ahead as I don't think reception is occupied often, I was prepared for this as per other reviews. We arrived and no one in reception and they don't answer the buzzer. When we...

Due to torrential rain on our way to Punakaiki, we were later arriving than anticipated (8 pm) and the office was closed, but the keys were in the doors of our units, and we settled in nicely. We tried to drop in the next morning, and again when we checked out at 10 am, but the office was locked and...

We stayed here after travelling across to Greymouth in the Transalpine Train. Located not far from the famous Pancake Rocks this place was fantastic. Our studio was perfect with a nice balcony at the back with views over the bush and a view across to the impressive beach from the side of the motel. There was a good kitchen and...

Awesome spot to explore the coast. We stayed in studio one where we were treated to sea views, a weka visiting out the front and a minute walk to a small glow worm grotto, amazing! Everything we needed to cook for ourselves on the two night stay, warm and cosy and hosts that were happy to help :)

Strangest place we stayed during our NZ trip. No sign of management and they didn't answer phone when we arrived at 5pm, still no one at 6 and no one answering door at manager's quarters so checked ourselves in, as the office was open and we had prepaid. More guests arrived and same again, helped other guests check in. Bedside...
