We had only one night in the Perfect Strangers 'shack' but it was fantastic. We were late in arriving but had arranged with a very trusting Robert to collect a key at the canoes renting site, another one of his businesses. Arriving at the site there were some fairly steep steps down to the property from the road which made...

Spend one night here in the lovely Havenz house. The house is fully equiped for everything you need: kitchen, bathrooms, beds, washer, dryer and added to that also a great jacuzzi! We loved spending time here. No internet, no wifi. Waking up with the sounds of the sea and birds was soooo good!

No mobile connection, wifi or TV! However, perfect base for an overnight stop in this lovely resort. We stayed for one night in one of the tree house rooms. Clean and simply furnished, kitchenette helpful too for preparing simple breakfast and dinner. Do shop though in somewhere like Westport or Greymouth. Find time to do the amazing Truman Track and...

The fact that there is no mobile phone coverage or tv is more than compensated by the lovely room and view looking out over the tree tops, we stayed in the Rimu . Quite quirky picking up the key from the Canoes building down the road and driving down a winding track to find our accommodation.

My wife and I stayed at the Pefrect Strangers home at the Havenz Punakaiki. This was a BEAUTIFUL home right on the cliffside by the beach. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, but there were many things that could have made it better. The good first. The house was absolutely gorgeous. Very modern, beautiful interior, excellent location right above the...

Please be warned that if you book "Miro" from Havenz Punakaiki, you are NOT going to be staying in a tree house! The Tree House is made up of 4 apartments and if you book Miro, you will have wheelchair access into a dark, slightly damp space and your forest outlook will in fact be 3 parked cars. We have...

Ground floor room of this property should not be used as it smells bad due to a humidity. Problem gets even worth after you take a shower as humidity cannot get out and all windows get foggy. Room would be ok without this point having all things necessary to cook and pass the night, however the foul smell is overbearing.

The room was clean, the bed was comfy. The towels were good. There were facilities to make some sort of meal. The room smelt mouldy and unaired, there was mould on the curtains. The ensuite facilities were flimsy. The deck needed a good power wash. We daren't open the windows because of the bitey flies. A most disappointing stay that...

When we arrived there was no instruction how to get the key. After informing at a restaurant and calling the accommodation we could get our key with a canoe company with the same name. The man which give us the key was very friendly but did drink a little too much in our opinion. After we go the key we...
