The Space

The beach and bush aspect has total privacy for guests who want a complete break from busy lives and enjoy natural peace and quiet! The house is fully self contained and for your comfort we have wood-burner, dishwasher, full laundry, microwave, fridge/freezer, BBQ, Wifi included (see note below), LCD television, DVD, sound system, and endless gas hot water for the very large spa bath. There is a queen bed in the main room which can be closed off from the lounge area with the large sliding door. Adjacent to this bedroom is a dressing area with a large bathroom leading on from this. This has a large tiled shower and a two person spa bath with bi-folding windows opening to the bush. The bathroom has a tiled floor with underfloor heating, heated towel rail and hairdryer. There are full laundry facilities on the main level and a dryer and inside washing line in the downstairs garage area. This is also where the wood is stored for the free standing wood burner. The large double-glazed sliders from both the bedroom and the living area open on to a timber deck affording panoramic views up the beach to the Cape. Just relax on the deck watching the ever-changing seascape or experience some of the local activities listed in our compendium. The Nile River lagoon is close by for safe swimming (10 min on foot) and there are some great walks in the area. Nine Mile Beach which the house overlooks, would take about 20 minutes to walk to but is only a 3 minute drive away. We have 2 mountain bikes (with helmets) for guests to use and Punakaiki (famous for its Pancake Rocks) and Westport are both about 25 minutes drive away. If you do want to stay less than 3 nights (or more) then we can negotiate a price with you.

Guest Access

The whole house is available to guests (apart from a second bedroom which contains our personal belongings, a store room in the garage and a cupboard in the main bedroom) and is fully serviced between guests. We send detailed information, instructions and key location to guests when accommodation has been booked and fully paid.

Interaction with Guests

We don't live on site but can speak by phone with guests if needed on our landline phone. We do offer WIFI free of charge but please, no large downloads as we have a limited data cap. Guests access the house by means of a Key Safe with PIN so it is very easy.

The Neighborhood

The West Coast of New Zealand is sparsely populated and our area has many lovely walks in the bush, on the beach or by the local rivers. Paparoa National Park is nearby with spectacular cliff formations and caves. Norwest Adventures operate a variety of very special adventure tours from their Charleston base which won't disappoint. (They have a cafe there open from around 9am to 4pm). There are no shops in Charleston so guests need to come with provisions. The closest supermarket is in Westport, 25 minutes drive to the north. Greymouth to the south is an hour's drive on one of the world's most scenic drives. There are some good licensed eateries at Tauranga Bay and Westport and there is also a small Pizzeria/Bar about a 3 minute drive from the house which is open between October and May usually. Westport Airport is 25 minutes drive from the house and rental car pick ups can be arranged from there.

Getting Around

You need to have your own transport or a rental car for accessing the area as there is no suitable public transport

Other Things to Note

We have a good selection of DVDs and CDs for your entertainment as well as the usual free to air TV channels. We also have a good supply of books, maps and a compendium of local information, as well as local maps. But please leave all of these in the folder for the next guests! We have a gas BBQ on the back deck and you may see weka (flightless woodhens) come to the dining room door! Little blue penguins also are often around the area so watch out for these. (Please don't request a booking with your dog as we don't make exceptions)

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

The house will be cleaned after your stay but we would appreciate the BBQ being left clean before you leave, ready for the next guests. It would also be very helpful if you could strip the beds and leave the linen and towels in the laundry area. Sorry, pets are not permitted (no exceptions!) and we do not allow smoking in the house.
