Brilliant stay
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Jan 2024
Awatuna Sunset Lodge was brilliant. It’s in a fabulous position and Elizabeth and Selwyn do everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, including a ride on Radar (the amphibious buggy). The food is amazing as it’s all home cooked. I would highly recommend staying there if you get the chance

We really enjoyed our stay! Elizabeth and Selwyn are great hosts and made the visit very special by providing tasty food and a tour to the beach using an amphibious vehicle. It was peaceful listening to the ocean waves breaking on the beach while we fell asleep!

Incredibly welcoming - Elizabeth & Selwyn go out of their way to make you feel welcome - nothing is too much trouble! What a wonderful, delightful time we had staying at their place. I cannot recommend this place highly enough - an absolute treasure! Home cooked food was to die for - breakfast and dinner were superb. You MUST stay here

Room tip: Book ahead so as not to be disappointed

Very nice place to stay, beautiful location, great hospitality, sunset views are magnificent. Lodge is well organized, clean and diner and breakfast were excellent.
The complementary sunset our on the beach was great, unfortunately we did not find any green stones.

Room tip: enjoy a walk on the beach

AMAZING! Make this a stop on your trip along the west coast! Elizabeth and Selwyn were insanely accommodating and fantastic hosts. Elizabeth’s cooking was divine - make sure you stay for dinner. And our ride out to the beach with Selwyn in Radar was a true highlight of our vacation!

Elizabeth and Selwyn have a beautiful, quiet place just near Hokitika, with everything you could want. The few select rooms are immaculate with lovely small touches. But it’s their warm welcome and service that stands out. If you book ahead Elizabeth cooks a beautiful dinner and then a fresh cooked breakfast of your choice. Selwyn takes you for a romping ride to the beach in his amphibious vehicle! There’s even a spa! We would definitely stay there again, if in the area.
