We stayed 1 night on our way through the west coast. Lynley and Paul were very accomodating to our little family. Room was very comfortable and clean well organised with some great extra touches. Grounds were beautiful our son had a great time playing around the homestead. Breakfast was amazing, Lynley even gave us some freshed baked muffins for the long drive. We’d highly recommend a stay here on your west coast adventure.

Homestead offers a perfect stay and welcome change to chain hotels. Hosts including two welcoming dogs are very obliging and hospitable. Rooms, common lounge area and gardens are all lovely for relaxing. We also enjoyed a short walk down to the beach at dusk. Dinner and breakfast both ample and freshly prepared to a high standard. Highly recommended.

The property was immacuately presented with every possible comfort. Mine hosts Paul & Lynley Truman were most charming and helpful, and our party of five was catered for wondefully with dinner and breakfast. Our tour over three weeks of the south Island of NZ included many accommodation places but none came close to Awatuna Homestead.

Paul & Lynley welcomed us in their beautiful house, The room is fully equipped with a very confortable bed, a large bathroom, and a direct access to the romantic garden. After a good night, Paul and Lynley work hard early to prepare home made pies and cakes to make the breakfast unforgettable ! Thanks again for everything.

Loved this homestay. The owners gave us a very warm welcome to their attractive house. Our upstairs room and bathroom were large with a sit out balcony with all the conveniences you could want. The bed was large and comfortable, everything was very clean. Breakfast was home cooked with some lovely homemade bread, muffins and savoury tartlets. The house is in a rural location close to the sea but only 10 minutes drive to Hokitika.
