Butterfield Beach House is by the beach with fantastic views.

There is a six seater car available for your use and entirely at your own risk. Drivers must be licensed, over 25 and there is a petrol and maintenance fee of $30 per day paid in cash on arrival.

Butterfield Beach House is a couple of bays around from Halfmoon Bay in a magical spot.

Kiwi have been seen at night walking up the drive.

The sound of the ‘lap lap’ beach will drift you off to sleep.

The space
Upstairs is a large mostly covered deck with French doors leading to open plan kitchen/living and dining.

The kitchen has a coffee plunger and freshly ground coffee, gas hobs and electric oven, dishwasher, convection microwave, slow cooker, crayfish pot, fire extinguisher, fire blanket, first aid kit etc. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need but if not, ask and I’ll see if I can provide it.

There is a washing machine and laundry sink and a sunroom with a clothes line.

Downstairs is a large room with a queen bed and 2 singles.

Butterfield Beach House is right opposite gorgeous Butterfield Beach. The living, kitchen and dining areas are open plan with fantastic views.

There’s a covered deck for relaxing, looking at the view, the stars and to use as a boot room for coats and boots.

The bedrooms all have queen beds. You’ll hear the lap lap of the beach and hear native birds singing when you wake. The amazing dark sky means you can star gaze from bed!

There is central heating run on oil. Each radiator can have the heat adjusted individually via the knob at the end. Set to 1 keeps the chill off. As we are a small island, the oil has to be transported to us via boat which is expensive so I ask guests to keep windows and doors shut if utilising the radiators.

Guest access
Guests have access to all of upstairs and the large room downstairs, the deck and front garden.

Other things to note
The vacuum cleaner is in the wardrobe of the middle bedroom, the iron and ironing board are in the wardrobe of the end bedroom. The vacuum is bagless.

There are extra blankets in the wardrobes and window seat if you need them.

The bathroom products are refilled from larger containers and may not contain the same make as the label on the bottle.

Hi, I’m descended from a long line of Stewart Islanders on both my Maori and European side. Stewart Island is my heart place and I look forward to sharing it with you.

During your stay
Please let us know how and what time you will be arriving. I or my sister Tam can pick you up/meet you from the ferry or flight centre at 2 pm if you request this option. Please let us know your preference as I understand everyone is different. If we aren’t meeting you I will message you with a photo as to where the car is parked, with the keys in it. It won’t be far away. The back door of the house will be unlocked. Coats and boots can be left on the outside wall by the back door.
We are available via text and happy to answer questions and give recommendations for activities and eating out.

I understand for most people this is a getaway from the stresses of modern living as well as a treat to experience such a beautiful untouched place and the wildlife and walking tracks so I know your time is precious here. Therefore, we don’t bother you but are available. However we may need to mow the lawn, tend to the garden or other jobs in the shed. We attempt to do this while you are out and about so you aren’t unduly disturbed.
