Tiropahi Retreat Bed & Breakfast situated on the South Islands West Coast. This private studio overlooks the Tasman Sea with a backdrop of Forest and Mountains (Paparoa). It is an idyllic venue for a quiet retreat with a delicious breakfast.
“As far as Airbnb reviews and ratings go, no words or even the highest rating of five out of five will do justice to Shelley or her place. Tiropahi Retreat is an entirely different league. One has to experience staying there to know, to feel and to appreciate what it offers. The place is magical. It is tastefully decorated. It is spacious - both the bedroom and the bathroom. Everything is of luxurious quality, be it the bedding, pillows or the toiletries. It is in the middle of a mature and well-cared-for garden. You can see the sea from the patio. All you hear and see is the nature all around you. There is a great selection of music CDs and some books too. True to its name, Shelley's place offers a complete retreat. It is not for those who wish to cook. There is no stove or microwave or oven. The nearest restaurant (a pizzeria) is about 10-12 minutes drive away. Nearest petrol station is 25-30 kms away in Westport. Did any of that matter when one stays there? Actually not even a bit. At least, not to me as a solo traveller, or even as a couple it wouldn't. Why not? First of all, Shelley makes a gourmet breakfast. It is so healthy and unbelievably hearty, and is delivered to you every morning. That's luxury. Who wants/needs to cook! Secondly, there is a good selection of teas, excellent quality coffee with kettle and plunger, milk and fresh fruits (locally grown) available for you in the kitchenette before you arrive. It is an exceptional place for taking a break from the regular humdrum of life and connecting yourself with nature, or connecting with yourself amidst nature! Meeting Shelley will be a privilege too.”
This private guest house is located on the beautiful West Coast of the South Island. It sits between the Paparoa mountain ranges and the Tasman sea.
“A great Airbnb! It is a very cozy, nicely decorated and clean cabin. A great bed, one of the best nights sleep so far in NZ, and a great shower. You can walk freely trough the garden and there is an area to sit and enjoy the sun. Enough privacy. There is some yogurt , oat and fruits to make yourself a nice breakfast. Anouschka and her husband and kids were great hosts, we felt very welcome. We will definitely return if we are around some day.”
Relax and rejuvenate on the beach. Enjoy the sea view, from your bed, couch, shower, bath and toilet. Walk through the paddock across a mown path, to the nine mile beach. It is a beautiful part of the west coast, with the Tasman sea in front and the Paparoa mountain range behind us. A women's wellness clinic is adjoining - extra charges apply. If no treatment is wanted, this room is not in use when we have guests so you are assured of your privacy.
“Perfect place with an amazing ocean view both from the bedroom and the 2 person bath tub. Denise and her husband were great hosts and their property is a very special place. Just wished we had spent a few more days with them.”
