Motukiekie beach apartment. Our guests come back for more.

Beachfront apartment with kitchen and balcony
Nestled in native bush, Just a few steps from New Zealand's best-kept secret, Motukiekie beach. One of the most outstanding beaches in New Zealand. Listed as one of the 9 most beautiful beaches in the world.
Wedged between the rugged West coast mountains and the wild ocean. Waterfalls tumbling from the cliffs behind the house making the fairytale image complete.
Situated on one of the top 10 coastal routes in the world. Walk the beach without anyone else in sight. Make great photos of the sea stacks, sunsets, or the milky way. Google images and of "Motukiekie beach", you will be impressed.
Secluded, private, and peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of Punakaiki. The downstairs apartment is well appointed with a complete kitchen.
Light the little log burner in the lounge. Have a sound sleep with the sound of the surf and the creek. You will have extensive dreams. So cozy, you will never want to leave.
While the apartment is downstairs with sea views, you are most welcome to go to the top deck and watch the sunsets from the top deck with a 180 degrees view over the Tasman sea.
Halfway between Greymouth and Punakaiki, it's the perfect base for West Coast activities.
The house is in a small community with 8 other houses.
There are plenty of walks nearby. We advise you to stay 2 or more days, you will not regret that.
Make an instant booking and you will receive directions and further information soon after.
Please note that you should only go on the beach near the Sea Stacks within one and a half hours either side of the low tide.
There are many jigsaw puzzles, books and board games.
We have had many great reviews.
From Jane:
Amazing house you will not regret booking. The best location I have ever stayed in. Very friendly hosts with great advice. Very private, even while Kees and Lia being there. Place was much bigger then expected, an overall great experience.
From Amanda:
"I am almost reluctant to write the rave review that Kees deserves as his beach house is unquestionably one of those 'actual' hidden gems in New Zealand! The kind you want to remain hidden so that nothing changes it."
From Danny:
Always wanted to stay in a place close to the ocean, sleeping with the noise of the ocean in the background was amazing, I travel New Zealand MANY times and this is one of the best places I stayed at.
From Sonya.
"This is a sparkling jewel on the spectacular rugged West Coast! This fantastic accomodation almost outshines the amazing location right beside the crashing waves"

4/5 Good

Waves To Excess. The amazing wave action,not far to the beach,and everything you needed is there.
This was a very pleasant stay, everything you needed was there, it was just a slight disappointment that I had some people upstairs. Otherwise superb locality,superbly different scenery, and the beach was to die for.

Amazing location
Everything was amazing. A very warm home in the winter - very easy to heat with the small wood fire.

5/5 Excellent

The Sound of the Sea
We found the apartment, very comfortable and warm. There were plenty of things to do and see. A place for families (as it has a queen sized bed and two single beds). At night in bed the sea was able to be heard easily. It was nice to be able to park the car in the carport, out of the weather.

4/5 Good

Amazing setting
Felt lucky to be staying in such a wild spot. Thank you for sharing. And thanks to all your neighbours too, who I understand are permanent residents. We got up before dark to do the beach walk, it was totally worth it. A big highlight of our week trip on the Coast.
