This is the first time i have stayed in a homestay and was much hesitant, My travel agent Mr Nats from take me 2 the world had arranged this stay.

I could say the way Lynley and paul took care of us, we felt it to be our extended family.

Right from hospitality , food , linens , spending time and also gave values to our children.

They also arranged to view india vs pak cricket.

The first and the best host and god bless their family

We loved staying at the West Coast Homestead in Awatuna. The original homestead apparently burned down and this lovely new, rustic and cozy home recreated with some adaptation for today’s expectations. My husband and I were travelling with our two grandsons and enjoyed our own rooms with big shared bathroom upstairs. It was chilly outside, but our rooms were comfy with extra blankets and tea and cookies at hand, and possibly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. Linley and Paul were welcoming hosts and gave us valuable tips for our continued travel down the west coast. Breakfast was a huge spread of choices including freshly baked goods. We recommend the Homestead highly.

It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us. We hope you enjoyed the rest of the South Island as much and would love to know whether you all went on the Luge at Queenstown!

We arrived on a rainy afternoon and Paul and Linley welcomed us to their beautiful place which is about 2 hours from Franz Josef Glacier. The great room was beautiful and it was a great place for the four of us to relax, have some refreshments and snacks.

We stayed in the self contained apartment on the second floor and were more than happy. The apartment is neatly furnished and equipped with a kitchen. We especially enjoyed the terrace which is attached. We were arriving a bit late for dinner but hadn't eaten and decided to call before we reached, Linley was very helpful in advising us where we could dine and making us a reservation. Overall a good stay and would recommend staying here (for Hokitika) especially if you're coming from quite a distance like we were.

We spent two nights at the Piper's Flat Apartment at Awatuna Homestead.
We loved it from the first second, as we were really welcomed by the whole family, when we arrived. What a lovely family, house and surrounding. The garden is absolutely amazing!
The apartment was like being at home, it was very clean, comfortable and you had everything you need.
And last but not least let's talk about the breakfast...it was amazing and even as it was just the two of us, Linley really made us different breads, pies etc. We really appreciated all these things and we hope we will come back one day. Thank you!
