Reviews

"Pictures simply do not do that view justice. Could have watched that river for weeks. Beautiful spot, wonderfully appointed with an enviable kitchen! Grab some great fresh food, cook up a feast and enjoy it on the lawn overlooking the river and pretty little bridge. Bathroom facilities and lots of bedrooms suit big groups well."

"What a beautiful place to stay! Stunning river views from the lounge room. We stayed in New Zealand 10 nights & these were the most comfortable beds we had. Would certainly return next time we come back to NZ."

"My husband and I stayed here while driving up the west coast from Fox Glacier to Blenheim. It was a great stopping point where we could relax and stretch out. The property has a large living space, kitchen and great back deck. The amenities were excellent and it wasn't far from Greymouth where we went for dinner. Rachel was an excellent host, helped make local recommendations, and provided a lovely continental breakfast. We would highly recommend to other travelers."

"Rachel’s place is fabulous - we were a group of 3 couples and there was plenty of space and amenities for us all. Such a beautiful, peaceful setting. Amazing indoors and outdoor options with everything we needed. Weather was perfect and Rachel’s suggestion for where to eat to watch the sunset was superb. Absolutely no negatives at all. Loved our stay. Thanks so much Rachel."

"Spotless property. Beds rated by everyone in our party as best ones yet on our 2 week trip. Amazing location, peaceful. Well equipped and lovely to have breakfast items supplied. We loved it. Thank you."

"Riverstone house was the perfect location for our family of 13 to get together for 5 days over Xmas. Cannot speak highly enough of Rachel who was very responsive to our needs. So many touches that made our family gathering perfect. The house ensured we all got to enjoy each other's company and even though it rained a couple of days, we never felt cooped up inside"

"The glorious tree and river cliffs set the scene for a wonderful stay. Road? What road? You wouldn't know it was there until you head off for the day. And even if the weather lets you down the massive, comfortably seated lounge area will look after all your needs. If you need help or arrive late then Rachel will look after you. As a group of 9 we still had lots of room and space to spread out. I've only got one favourite on AirBnB....this is it. 

Thanks very much for hosting us. You have a good touch with being available but not intrusive at all. We really enjoyed our stay and will look forward to coming back some time. Cheers."

"A beautiful and peaceful location close to both Hokitika and Greymouth. Rachel was a great host and extremely responsive."

"Wow! This place exceeded our expectations on every level. The house and location is amazing. Rachel is the most thoughtful host and supplies all the extras that make for great stay."

"Rachel's home was perfect for four couples. The location on the river was great especially for one of the guests who was fishing within 10 mins of arriving. The home was very spacious and clean. The freshly baked bread each day was beautiful as well as all the other touches of eggs, cereal, milk & OJ. We loved talking to Rachel who filled us in on the history of the home & surrounds. We only stayed the one night but wish we had booked another as it was such a relaxing & tranquil property. Highly recommend to everyone travelling through NZ."

"A hidden gem, we absolutely loved our stay there. Couldn’t have asked for more from our host and the house is set in a truly world class surrounds. Will be back! Thanks Rachel."

"Rachel's place was absolutely amazing. It was huge, homely, had a beautiful view and awesome atmosphere. Both Jarrad and Rachel were lovely and even made us some fresh bread in the morning. There were plenty of showers and bathrooms for our group of 7. The only problem we had was we didn't spend more nights here!"

"Rachel helps her guests in every way; she anticipates needs. We are a family of 6, three generations, and her space worked beautifully for us. We all were glad to be there for two nights and three would have been better. We have done a lot of travel in NZ and this is an exceptional place which we highly recommend."
