Two couples comfortably shared the apartment with two bedrooms and the cost was very reasonable for the quality of this B&B on the coast north of Westport (there is even a penguin colony nearby but you have to be on the beach when they come in from fishing each day to see them). We had full access to the living...

What a wonderful find, an easy 20min drive from Westport. Hostess with the mostess: fantastic food & pampering to the hilt.....but privacy respected. "Storm" was gorgeous!! Beautiful premises with the most comfy of beds, brilliant 'guest' kitchen / lounge area with EVERYTHING you may require. Hot Tub was just divine - brilliantly set up little sanctuary just a stroll across...

We stayed at Charming Creek for 1 night during our self-drive tour of the south island. We had a delightful room with a huge ensuite and the B&B itself is clean and well appointed with couches, dining areas, free teas and espresso and free wi-fi. Our host, Gay, was very friendly and we enjoyed playing with her sheltie Storm. Note...

We booked it as it was only one of two places available in Westport that day. Ah sometimes you really get lucky that way. Gay, the owner, is very friendly and very knowledgeable about everything in that area. Thanks to her we visited Karamea and the Arches. One of my favourite finds over the holiday. The other owner, well almost,...

My Husband and I stayed here whilst honeymooning around the Sth Island. We decided to book after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. It was our first time staying in a BnB and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Gay and Storm (the Sheltie) made us feel very welcome. It's a beautiful part of the country and the...

We enjoyed our stay and we liked having a chat with Gay over breakfast. The continental breakfast was adequate and we loved the range of homemade jams.

Very fine small bed and breakfast with private beach access. Off the beaten track a bit, but well worth the scenic drive from Westport. The property is newer and immaculately maintained, with interiors well-appointed and with pleasing decor. Gay proved to be an attentive and informative host, and her dog, Storm, is delightful. Gay is a Kiwi who lived for...

Charming Creek is a lovely B&B about 20 minutes northwest of Westport. At first we were disappointed to drive the extra distance but it was well worth it. It's actually in a town called Granity, which we found out is a mining town. Gaye and her dog Storm were wonderful hosts. The place was spotless, the beds comfy and the...

Absolutely loved our stay at Charming Creek. Being born and bred in that charming part of the world 30 odd years ago and now living in Australia, my return 13 years later with my young family was the most relaxed part of our 2 week journey of NZ. With the rugged coastline as our restaurant and the most comfortable bed...
