A beautiful property created and cared for with love and commitment to health and the environment . Make sure to arrive early enough to enjoy a bush walk to the river. Exceptional wood features in the accommodation … a lot to look at and appreciate.
Everything about this property is perfect. The layout, the sunset look out, the access to the river, the bedrooms, kitchen and lounge all were perfect. I proposed to my partner at their sunset lookout, it was perfect. Also the owners were super nice and made us feel very welcome.
there is something very special about this place, the views from hut are incredible and really enjoyed have some space to myself and will go back for another break again in the future!
Warm, welcoming and homely. Beautiful outlook over the forest. Perfect location to recharge. The cottage is very well stocked with games, books and kitchen equipment, it's such a lovely place to spend time.
Beautiful, unmatched location with native bush and a river nearby. The lodge has such a welcoming feel to it, with the best mix of eco-living and modern facilities.
Extraordinary quality and sustainability. Fabulous private track through regenerating bush/wetland to the river.
Awesome place to stay, being close to Westport as well as Punakaiki. The hut was immacutely clean and the wooden interior with the little fireplace made it feel very warm and welcoming. The views out to Paparoa NP, was magic. The bathroom facilitities were a pleasure to use. The kitchen facilities meant we could make hot drinks but not cook, but we were able to work around this. Very accommodating hosts who want to make your stay the best it can be. A real gem of a place in a special corner of the West Coast and would highly recommend it.
We had a delightful stay at Liane's place. The cottage is comfortable and charming, with lovely views out of the many windows. The fireplace, with plenty of wood, turned the sitting room into a cosy place to visit and talk together within our group. The location is very convenient to the natural attractions of the region, as well as the commerce at Westport. The grounds themselves immerse you in the bush. Liane and her husband answered every question, and made every effort to make our stay memorable. Highly recommended!
Beaconstone is a serene haven set in beautiful wild west coast countryside, stunningly framed by well placed windows, excellent outdoor seating and far enough off the main road to forget that there is a world outside the property during the stay. A fire had warmed the house for our late night arrival, and we were treated to spectacular birdsong in the morning. The cottage had everything you would need for a lengthy visit, and the house easily accommodated the three adults in our group.
Amazing place , looks like a little paradise. We loved the place and stay
Stunning native bush views. Excellent setting for rest and relaxation. Quality time was spent together, without a tv or internet. Hospitable hosts inspired us by showing us their ecosystems around the property.
We had a truly wonderful stay here! The cottage is beautifully furnished with care and we felt well taken care of. There is a fully equiped kitchen, comfy room spaces and a warm fireplace for relaxing in the evenings. Liane is a superb host, and we can't wait to visit again.
Lianes cottage is in such a beautiful setting …. The cottage felt so homely and warm with loads of homely touches that felt luxurious yet practically appointed. The master bed is super comfy.. and the living areas had heaps of ambience and character
Fabulous place to stay with our family. Highly recommend the walk from the cottage down to the river. Our kids had quite an adventure and the river is beautiful. Wonderful stay. Would recommend if you like a relaxing cozy holiday with your family.
Gorgeous accommodation with stunning secluded views. Loved being able to play board games in front of the fire. We picked this place specifically for the fire and it didn’t disappoint having two options. The sunset walk spot was amazing. Big cozy bed. Wish we could have stayed longer.
We loved everything about our stay, Rick & Liane have put a lot of thought into it, we loved getting back to nature , we stayed in the mountain view hut it was perfect, hopefully will get back there one day. Wish we could have stayed longer.
We can’t speak highly enough about this wonderful place. The indoor and outdoor spaces are so inviting and relaxing. You have everything you could possibly need, plus a fireplace and games and books. It’s so comfortable and the views are incredible.
Incredible stay - great location (feels remote but reasonably close to town), cabin was beautiful and immaculately clean, river was fantastic for a dip, sunset spot was gorgeous. Liane and her family were lovely. I would recommend this place without hesitation!
The cottage is located between Westport and Charleston in a fantastic quiet location overlooking the Valley. The cottage is very nicely decorated with great attention to detail. A nice fireplace is the center of the room and a very nice cooking area. Outside area there is a barbecue and a large dining table. However, we did not use that. You can enjoy the sunset from the cottage or an outlet in the immediate vicinity. For this you have to take a walkway through the bush /Rainforest. Really great. There is also a bushwalkway to a small river where you can swim wonderfully. fantastically beautiful. Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights, but would book here again anytime.
