Robin & Louise Allardice, Tasmania, Australia

"Wonderful Stay at this Spectacular Venue. We drove down the West coast of NZ, not knowing what to expect. We were thrilled by the Pancake Rocks (Punakaiki, Paparoa NP) and then just a short time later pulled into Jan and Steven’s delightful accommodations overlooking a gorgeous beach. Calling to mind the Oregon and California’s rugged north coast (think Mendocino), we thoroughly enjoyed the sunset over the Tasman Sea as we sipped wine in our cosy and we’ll appointed room. Later, the night sky was brilliant. Next morning, we explored the almost private beach below the hotel. Steven and Jan were gracious and attentive hosts, without being intrusive. All told, we recommend Breakers wholeheartedly."

Ted and Elizabeth Cassaman, Berkeley, California USA

"Peace On the beach. Driving down the west coast of New Zealand, south of Paparoa National Park, we found a heavenly retreat at the Breakers. Jan and Stephen were cheerful, helpful hosts, and steered us to a fine local pub for dinner instead of the Greymouth restaurant we’d found online. Great breakfast, millions of stars, and a beautiful private beach walk added to a huge, modern and comfortable room. Great stay!"

Margaret Stewart and Severin Borenstein, Orinda, California USA

"Jan & Stephen are incredible hosts. This was our second stay and it felt like we were welcomed home. Gorgeous room, wonderful amenities, very conscious of the special environment in which we live. Tips as to local hikes off the beaten path, incredible breakfasts, and the warmest New Zealand hospitality imaginable. Great access to west coast attractions and so attentive to every need. We spent 3 nights this trip and were sad to go. They also supplied us with detailed information about our next day’s journey, including off the beaten track surprises and the best fresh baked bread supplier in the next town. Wow."

Mike and Mo, Bend Oregon USA

"This has been the most amazing stay ever. Loved every minute of my time here. Blessed to have been taken out for sunset photo shots, up 10 mile creek and discovering coal history and a walk through/along the Arnold Dam to see "blue mushrooms" which has been a lifetime wish. Amazing hosts Jan & Stephen, you absolutely rock and I will definitely be back. You live here in a wee slice of paradise. Hugs."

Lyn Alves, New Zealand

"Such a wonderful place to stay. Jan is fantastic and provided great insight on local places to visit. The breakfasts are lovely and always served with a smile. You made our stay such a delight and enjoyable time. Thank you."
