    We cannot put into words how incredible everything was, like being on another planet. The most beautiful New Zealand scenery!

    The West Haven Lodge is a Labor of Love. We were astonished that this family had built this place from scratch themselves – what an amazing job they have done!

    Where do I start? We stayed at Westhaven for two nights and this is one of the most spectacular places in New Zealand! The amazing rock formations, Nakau palms and seascapes make it a great place for easy walks or sitting enjoying the view from the lodge. The lodge itself is a testament to the vision and hard work of the Stompe family - it is truly a labor of love and a wonderful environment to kick back and relax. Then the food - there is something special about European hospitality - it was very hard to say no to any of the wonderful food - especially Monika's apple cake (which we finished eating on our drive out!). If you are looking for a unique memorable experience then Westhaven is for you - we will definitely be back!

    My husband and I were traveling with friends in New Zealand in Dec 2011 and had the honor of being the first official guests! We have traveled all over the world and this was truly our most favorite place to stay. The hosts are just an amazing and special family and they truly make this whole experience spectacular! We were there for just a few days but we have made a pact that we must get back there some day! If you have the chance to go this area of New Zealand, a stay at Westhaven is a must!
