Motels & Self-contained accommodation in Westport, West Coast, NZ.

Birds Ferry Lodge and Ferry Man’s Cottage

Between Punakaiki & Westport

Rediscover the natural world in this private 20-hectare oasis, ideal for a romantic getaway or a restorative weekend. Indulge in a holistic massage, soak in the outdoor Spa high above a river valley cascading through native forest to the ocean. It’s a luxury Punakaiki accommodation in heartland wilderness, yet easily accessible by air or road, only 2km from State Highway 6 and 20 minutes from Westport and the famous Punakaiki Pancake Rocks… but it feels a lifetime away.

The whiff of fresh baked bread, homemade conserves, real espresso, our own organic fruit and produce: breakfasts at Birds Ferry Lodge are legendary.

Enjoy superb cuisine and wines hosted at the Lodge, or delivered to the self-contained Ferryman’s Cottage as a breathtaking sunset gives way to the absolute quiet of evening. You’ll wake to the bellbird’s song and if you are lucky a Kiwi!

Venture out to explore a wild landscape steeped in Maori and European history, or curl up by the fire with a book and a glass of wine, to the sigh of the ocean. No live television, no landline, no clocks, but with many small luxuries and a commitment to the environment, it’s the perfect retreat for indulgent relaxation.
