“Homely and welcoming”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 2 May 2015
My wife and I stayed here for one night on our round tour of the South Island. Collyer House is well appointed and wonderfully comfortable. Neroli was a warm welcoming hostess and our room was most acceptable. She is quite a photographer and her photo displays add to the interest. The property is a bit remote, but with lovely views, and the sound of the sea lulls you to sleep in the evening. We had a hearty breakfast with some of the other guests and swapped yarns about where we had been and the places we had seen. Most enjoyable, and I recommend.
“Lovely property on the coast near Haast”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 4 May 2015
We booked this BnB as a stopover between Franz Josef and Te Anau, It was all rather lovely with big picture windows and beautifully decorated. Perfect for a relaxed stopover. Neroli was a friendly and chatty host. Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed that we slept well in.
“Lovely bed and breakfast”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 25 March 2015
we only stayed one night. The room was adequate but there were no tea and coffee making facilities. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with an en suite bathroom. Free wifi was only 50mb which was just enough to read a few emails. Our host, Neroli, was lovely and cooked us a great breakfast.
“Another Wonderful B and B”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 8 March 2015
Neroli Nolan not only a friendly hostess but her purpose built B&B has some wonderful scenic photos of the Haast area captured by herself. A very competent photographer. We stacked up on her photo postcards, her Native Clematis is stunning. Oops forgot to mention, very comfortable room, great outlook to an island where a bunch of sealers were maroons for 3 years back in early 1800's. Recall they were said to have butchered 17000 seals waiting for their mother ship to return which never eventuated.
Around the district you see the Nolan name, even an old can of whitebait, Nolan Cannery, which on display at Curly Beach Whitebait Company. Stop in and grab a whitebait pattie on slice of bread. All whitebait, minimum of fritter. Back to Neroli, a top breakfast. Has to be, Neroli has been doing it for 14 years!

We stayed the night after finishing the the Copland track and it was lovely - everything seemed very luxurious! The room was really comfortable and the breakfast great. The wifi didn't bother us - in such a secluded place, I'm not sure that you can expect anything more. The Haast visitor centre is also highly recommended - great exhibitions to look around - especially if it's raining.

Neroli is a lovely host sharing a beautiful home. She made us very welcome and gave us some useful suggestions for walks in the area, and then the best spot to photograph the setting sun. Dinner and breakfast were fantastic. Highly recommended

We stayed here for one night (wish it had been longer) Neroli was a great host. She made us feel so welcome and it was so homely. Thanks to her advise we changed our route to Picton Ferry which meant we did not have such a long drive and also enjoyed the scenery at our leisure. We would highly recommend her and please book via her website direct. Also booking is recommended. Thank you again Neroli
ABOUT THE REGION:
Haast is an area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The Haast region covers over 2500 square kilometres of one of the world's most diverse and spectacular landscapes.Lake Moeraki is 30 km to the north-east, and the Haast Pass is 63 km to the south-east by road. State Highway 6 passes just to the east of the township. The 2006 census recorded a population of 297 for the Haast statistical area, which is much larger than the town. This was a decrease of 12 from 2001.The main economic activities are farming, fishing and tourism.
The Haast tokoeka, a rare sub-species of kiwi, are only found in the mountains near Haast.
European settlement of the area dates back to the 1870s. It was not until the 1960s that Haast had formed roads connecting it to the rest of New Zealand (the road to Wanaka opening in 1966). Previously, Haast was serviced by rough tracks from the North and East, as well as by ship.In the 1970s Haast was the site of an unsolved murder case. On January 19, 1970 Jennifer Mary Beard was found dead under the Haast River bridge. The main suspect was Gordon Bray from Timaru but he was never prosecuted and has now died. There are claims of other suspects but the police have no plans to reopen the case. In 1990 this area was internationally recognised as a location of significant natural value and became the centrepiece of Te Wahipounamu- The South West New Zealand World Heritage Area.
The settlement of Haast is spread over three locations -Haast township, which is situated on State highway 6, - Haast Junction(immediately south of the Haast Bridge) is situated at the junction of State Highway 6 and Jackson Bay Road and Haast Beach which is approximately 10km south of Haast Junction (on the Jackson Bay Road).The town is named after Julius von Haast.The Department of Conservation operate a visitor centre in Haast which offers a wide range of information about the surrounding area.
