Awesome place to stay. We should have stayed longer!

Elizabeth and Selwyn are excellent hosts and really interesting people to talk to. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. We’d definitely stay again.



Everything. The hosts were amazing. We enjoyed our dinner and breakfast, particularly all the homemade, fresh food. The yoghurt, sauces, pickles, jams and bread were all delicious. The room was very comfortable with everything we needed. It was a special place to stay.


Friendly hosts with very comfortable and clean facilities.

Beautiful location with a room that looked out over the ocean. Breakfast was excellent as was the dinner which we were able to select from their menu. Enjoyable wine, nibbles and conversation with the hosts!


The bed was the best in New Zealand

I was the only guest that evening. Elizabeth and Selwyn were the best hosts. Selwyn took me to the beach with an amphibious vehicle. The sundowner and the food afterwards were just perfect. I really felt very welcome and cared for all around. 😊 The bed was the best in New Zealand so far. Extremely comfortable. I would have liked to stay longer, but unfortunately I had to go on.


I absolutely recommend this property and these hosts to anyone heading to the area!

Awatuna Sunset Lodge provided everything they said they would and more! Elizabeth and Selwyn are amazing people. So friendly and accommodating and willing to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. The property itself was absolutely gorgeous and the sunset was unbelievably beautiful


Great place, great hosts!

Selwyn and Elizabeth are amazing hosts, with an equally amazing property! They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. Wonderful breakfast and dinner menus. Top notch! Super comfortable rooms, wonderful bed, and lovely white noise from the Tasman Sea to put you to sleep at night. We arrived as guests, and left as friends, we will most certainly return!

A wonderful 5 nights - perfect for day rides on the wilderness trail

We stayed over Easter for 5 nights. We used Awatuna as our base to do day rides on sections of the Wilderness Trail. It was a perfect spot midway between Hoki and Kumara. Elisabeth and Selwyn are amazing hosts – the setting, the food, evening drinks on the deck, the hot tub and getting to know the other guest all made the stay a fantastic one. This is all capped off with the view of the Tasman Sea and the sunsets…Both Selwyn and Elisabeth are very skilled at ensuring the guests get just the amount of attention they require (or don’t require) and this makes it a relaxing time as you are free to wander the grounds and beach. Highly recommend Awatuna Sunset Lodge.
