A lovely location & accommodation. We had taken the Charming Creek walk package is it was fantastic. Gay provided us with a wonderful lunch & a fabulous lamb dinner on our return; it was excellent. Breakfast was also very good, we really enjoyed all the fresh home grown or locally ingredients. The bed was very comfy, the room spacious &...

I hesitate to write a negative review, but the difference between our expectation and the reality, having read other reviews and looked at the website, had our hearts sinking as we pulled up to Charming Creek B&B. Maybe we were expecting too much – the website says all suites have private sundecks and talks of the Tasman in front and...

We are sad when any guests are disappointed - we make no attempt to oversell this property - the description for the superking room does not promise an ocean view - and from our decks there are glimpses of the sea directly across the road where the rest of our property does indeed go right to waters' edge......to gain more...

A lovely place, spectacular and peaceful. Lovely and clean bedrooms and a relief to have a peaceful and soothing sleep. Beautiful surroundings and to top it off, amazing hosts (Gay and Storm :) ) Stones throw from the beach to enjoy the sea air and sunset. Def recommended place to stay. Thank you Gay and Storm

We had a fantastic time at Charming Creek. Right from the start we were welcomed like we were family. Our hostess immediately showed us how to use the coffee maker and we were deliciously caffeinated for the rest of our time there. We also got help planning our New Years festivities and got information about local history and attractions. The...

We arrived at Charming Creek after a long day's drive and we could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome received as well as the cosy rooms which awaited us. We had a very restful night. Except for the fact that Charming Creek was located some what away from Westport town centre, Charming Creek is a very...

What a gem of a place. Lovely bedroom, great breakfast but most of all fantastic hostess. Gay went the extra mile and made our lunch for our mountain bike ride we did around the Charming Creek circuit. Highly recommend bike ride, check out the Kennett Brothers mountain bike guide for directions. Took around 3 1/2 hours. I wish we could...

Staying at Charming Creek is a unique experience. The accommodation is reasonably priced and very comfortable, but what makes this place special is the feeling of being genuinely looked after. In the morning the weather was perfect for a walk on the magnificent beach opposite, but I had not brought sensible shoes. No problem — our hostess came out with...

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...

“We very much enjoyed the Driftwood Suite (with ensuite bathroom). The room was spacious and the king bed very comfortable; the deck was adjacent to the driveway and not private, but facing the ocean (you have to cross the street to access the beach).”
