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. Monica and her family made our stay, they are so friendly and helped you feel relaxed from...

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. Look up “Westhaven Retreat” on YouTube to get a better idea-and please if you planning to be anywhere near the top of the South Island...

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,...

My wife and I just spent several days at Westhaven in mid-April. What a gem! The lodge is set on a spectacular 1000 acres and has every luxury. We took a fun half day sea kayack tour, hiked several of the trails and just relaxed. The family proprieters could not have been nicer and more attentive. Food was also very...

We began our honeymoon at Westhaven and do not think we can put into words how incredible everything was. It was like being on another planet. The most beautiful scenery you have ever seen, you can hike for hours and hours to different beaches, cliffs, tropical forests and rolling hills (all owned by westhaven) and so quiet. The hosts were...

For Christmas 2013/2014, which we spend 18'596 km away from home, we were looking for a special location. It had to be peaceful, in the middle of nature but with all luxury, good food and hosts running their Lodge with a mix of professionalism and passion. What we found in Westhaven was by far exceeding our expectations (and it is...

My wife and I will be departing tomorrow following a 2 night stay. Once you are in Golden Bay and pass through Nelson then Collingwood you must find a mostly gravel road up to the Lodge.

West Haven Luxury Lodge, West Hell is more like it. In addition to meeting this lovely three generation family, you may stay in a well-appointed beautiful lodge, and yes, the views are quite pretty.

Dear Madam, I am so sorry you felt this way.

Just stayed at the cottage (cheaper option) attached to the lodge. Very friendly hosts and will book again to stay at the lodge itself. Was able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner through the lodge provided by "2 Monica" (mum and daughter).
