Our names are Lia and Kees and we are a semi-retired couple. In 1980 we traveled the world and during our visit to New Zealand, we fell in love with the West Coast. We live in Christchurch but for 7 years we searched for that special place on the coast and finally found a fisherman's cottage at Motukiekie beach. The cottage needed a lot of work and in 2010 we decided to build a new house. Together with a builder, I built a house designed for the conditions of the location. Salt-laden air and strong winds. We think that Motukiekie is very special and we like to share this location with you.

Why Keesd523 chose Barrytown
Sleeping with the sound of the sea. See the crashing waves from your chair. Experience amazing sunsets. Walking alone on one of the most amazing beaches in New Zealand or a choice of other walks. A toasty fire. Soak up the history. Just relax with a good book or make the most scenic photos. Please do not rush past, give it the time it deserves. You will be so pleased you did. Look for the photos of Motukiekie and read our reviews.
What makes this Apartment unique
Wedged between the bluff and the ocean is a narrow strip of land. The rainforest tumbles down. The waterfall forms the creek flowing past. Listen to Tui and Bellbirds. Discover footprints of blue penguins. Encounter seals. Go fishing from the rocks or catch a Crayfish. Steam the mussels you picked.

Great guest apartment near a spectacular beach
Apartment was great very clean, easy check-in with key code and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the walks on the amazing beach! Great experience!
Motukieki beach stay
The location is breathtakingly beautiful. I walked all the way to ten mile creek because the tide was low and Kees and Lia were home and doing the walk themselves. I got to enjoy fresh mussels thanks to the hosts. It was lovely to hear the sound of the waves in the night as we went to sleep. Memorable stay!
The property owners were very helpful with all the information that give from the beginning to then end of your stay. The apartment has a lovely view of the garden out to the ocean and provides you everything you need. We would absolutely stay here again.
Beautiful beach, nice house and friendly neighbours. So far one of the best locations in NZ!
Absolutely beautiful place. Beach straight out the back door. Mussels from the rocks for dinner...couldn't get any better than that!! Next time we are staying much longer!!!!! The rock formations are incredible and make for a lovely walk and excellent photos!!
Comfy lodging. Fabulous scenery.
