My husband and I spent 2 wonderful days at Westhaven in Nov 2016. The lodge is a piece of paradise far from the madding crowd. Monika x 2, Bruno and Thomas built the lodge themselves and the attention to detail, personal attributes and passion that they put into the build is replicated in the service that you receive as a...

My husband and I stayed at Westhaven Lodge outside of Collingwood, New Zealand in January, 2016. To say it is unique is an understatement. It is situated on 1000 acres surrounded by National Park and the Ocean. And it is out of the way, literally; the last 20 km is a dirt road! The Lodge is spectacular. Each room is...

We spent two days at this magnificent, family built lodge. At the end of the summer season, we were solitary visitors on this wonderful property. Great hiking, scenery, indoor pool, and, a great massage. Greeted by gracious hosts and Bear (the family dog), this was one active and restful stay.

After finding the retreat for our anniversary and getting there we were not disappointed. A great suite, pool, spa, and lovely meals, walks and quad bike rides AND the views, who could ask for more. A working farm to walk around and tracks everywhere

To stay at Westhaven Cottages is to withdraw from the busyness of life and have time to just enjoy the simple things in life. The scenery is spectacular, there are so many walking tracks to choose from, taking you into untouched New Zealand.

As a visitor to New Zealand this has to be on the “must do” list. Nowhere else will you see such spectacular scenery, enjoy such attentive service and be in such a beautiful remote spot.

This is probably the most spectacular lodge we have stayed at in NZ, and certainly one of the most amazing settings of anywhere we have ever stayed in the world. Yes, the journey is long (but adventurous and fun), and the c 25km of gravel tracks would have been more comfortable with a 4WD vehicle, but when you get there,...
