Westport Accommodation

Charleston is a fantastic option for a stay in the Westport area. Our Lodge is situated midway between Westport & Punakaiki Pancake Rocks.

It is a great option if you want a quieter and more scenic Westport accommodation option.

We are just a short coast drive from the world famous Punakaiki ( pancake rocks) offering spectacular views of the rugged coastline & dense rainforest
