GreenLeaders Silver level
MAKE CARTERS BEACH YOUR DESTINATION !! 10 contemporary spacious (30m2) studios (opened Dec 2015) overlooking the Tasman Sea at Carters Beach, a pretty little village 5 min from Westport. Each studio has under tile bathroom heating, ceiling fans, a full kitchen, choice of luxurious queen or king beds and occasional chairs. Two studios have corner spa baths. The upstairs studios have balconies (all with sea views) and the ground floor studios have patios (studio 1 and 2 with sea views). Each studio is designed for maximum comfort and relaxation to the soothing sound of the sea and the local bird life. The studios have been built to maximum earthquake code and are sound proof from each other by use of concrete midspan floors and concrete block construction. Carters Beach is a sandy beach, suitable for swimming and surfing, located within Buller Bay, with relaxing walks either to the Buller River mouth or up to the impressive Cape Foulwind cliffs and Tauranga Bay with glorious sunsets. Carters by the seas is the perfect destination to base yourself and relax by the sea. We are close to the beautiful Punakaikai Rocks via the spectacular Great Ocean Road , the UNDERWORLD RAFTING TOUR or the GLOW WORM CAVE TOUR at Charleston , the SEAL COLONY & LIGHTHOUSE WALKWAY at Tauranga Bay and THE DENNISTON EXPERIENCE up at the famous Denniston Incline (30 mins out of Westport ) as well as a day out at KARAMEA and the PREHISTORIC OPARARA ARCHES ( 1.5 Hours from Carters Beach).
