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!!
