New owners. Not operating as it previously was. Currently a 'back yard for rent' if you want to park your camper van for a night; $20 non-powered, $25 with power. Shower and other facilities provided though NOT available for use between 7:00am and 3:00pm due to owners son sleeping in the adjoining cabin after his night-shift. Could be a while...

My husband and I stayed a night here during our honeymoon in NZ, and we were so well looked after. We received a hugely warm welcome from both Amelia and Steve, and it was such a relaxing place to be. Very comfortable, attractive room with a beautiful view. Just a shame we only booked for one night!

Just when we were about to give up on finding a place to stay in Bluff, we came across The Bluff Homestead - a beautiful historical house conveniently located near the Stewart Island Ferry terminal (5 min. drive). The rooms inside the house looked beautiful and the reasonably priced cabin and tent/campervan sites are a good option for those on...

I came across the Homestead almost by accident, assuming I'd be staying in a soulless holiday park for a night before getting the Stewart Island ferry, and had a great surprise when I found this beautiful and welcoming home where I was made to feel very comfortable in my campervan spot overlooking the harbour. There's a great little kitchenette space...

The bedroom was spacious with a nice sitting area with harbours views and the bed we were in was truly fabulous. However the room was cold when we arrived, despite forward booking and an ETA advised. I'm not a fan of shared bathrooms and did know that this property has only shared bathroom but I didn't realise that it is...

Friendly hosts and the lodge is nice. Some things I would like to see done a little different. A little variety in the breakfast and small things like that. Very comfortable.

This place looked a bit derelict and we wondered if we'd made a huge mistake by prebooking during the high season. However, we were charmed the minute we got inside. Great character with shared bathroom and kitchen made available for your use. Games and books are available for a rainy day. The town itself is completely forgettable with everything looking...

Not having booked anything in advance, we turned up in Bluff, ahead of our trip to Stewart Island, to discover this lovely lodge. This is a family home and one of local historical interest. We stayed in a lovely room with views over the harbour. The bathroom is shared. The house retains its old world charm but with modern touches....
