Welcoming, charming, and a stay to remember!
What a treat! Elizabeth and Selwyn were exceptional hosts. When asked, yes you want to ride Radar. To say we were treated like family is an understatement -- the kindness and hospitality is second to none. A few of our favorite moments included: patio welcome drinks, evening hot tub time, feeding the chickens, and of course breakfast made to order. My only regret was not staying a second night due to our travel plans. BOOK THIS NOW!

Truly heaven on earth
Don’t even know where to begin! Probably the best stay of our lives. After travelling around NZ from the UK this place was a slice of heaven. We were greeted warmly and told we were just in time for sunset - served Canapés and a beer on the beautiful terrace as the sun went down. A dip in the lovely hot tub, an insanely comfy bed for a wonderful nights sleep and then a freshly cooked home made breakfast. Plus travel tips and friendly-ness galore. We couldn’t recommend this place highly enough - perfect hosts in paradise.

If you are looking for a home stay with fantastic hosts this place is for you. The location beach front was beautiful. The breakfast amazing. Our bedroom was roomy high standards in linen, bed quality and cleanliness smart tv My only comment is I think the description should be a b&b

Elizabeth and Selwyn know how to treat a guest. Nothing was a problem and always keen for a chat. We went to the Wild Foods and Selwyn dropped us off and picked us up...that is above and beyond. No extra charge either. Great coffee btw. Thanks again.

A Hidden Gem
This could not have been anymore amazing than it was! A beautiful room with a veranda overlooking the sea. Elizabeth and Selwyn are the perfect hosts, a welcome drink and canapés on arrival with other guests was unexpected and lovely. Breakfast was also excellent with a great selection. Although only small and a few kms out of town, do not miss this exceptional accommodation.

Better than best!
We can highly recommend Awatuna Sunset Lodge! It has three very nice newrennovated doublerooms. Everything in the lodge is brandnew, very clean and good looking. Sitting at the terrass overlooking the garden and the sea is a pleasure. The breakfast was really good and much more than we expected. We will like to come back there if we could!!
