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).

We enjoyed our stay here with the little balcony. Really clean unit, well equipped and a lovely range of toiletries. Friendly check in and helpful staff with advice on activities in the area. We would stay here again when next in Westport.

Right across from the reserve and Carter’s Beach the Motel is a great place to stay. Modern and clean this motel is a step above your average 1970s style motel that you expect to find in the west coast. Friendly host and fair price. Walk next door for a good dinner.

Nice a clean room with great in room facilities and bar/ restaurant walking distance. Sadly our major disappointment was the bed which was too hard we could feel the springs and wouldn’t be able to sleep in it again without some pain killers.

Our ground floor, ocean view apartment was modern and fresh with a beachside decor. The bed was very comfortable, room was clean and well appointed with everything you’d need for a longer stay. Noise insulation was great!! Wish we’d had a couple of nights here! The garden is very pretty, with an outdoor grass area for relaxing with a drink. This was a nice point of difference. So much to enjoy at this location...An excellent cafe/restaurant is located just a few doors along the street. The beach is across the quiet road, as is a really great children’s playground (fenced). Only a 10 minute drive to Westport township and about the same to Cape Foulwind, the seal colony, and some lovely walks. Would definitely stay again.
