Akaroa, New Zealand
Built in 1878 by a pair of British gardeners and ornithologists who saw great potential in situating their home on the sunny side of the Grehan Valley, Beaufort House was originally called “The Wilderness." An Akaroa landmark, the house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with many roses, camellias and magnolias planted by the original owners, along with a magnificent bunya-bunya tree. The house itself was built from totara, rimu, and matai woods with kauri doors that are still in place today. Extensive renovations have maintained the property’s historic integrity, creating a boutique bed and breakfast with five unique, luxurious rooms filled with antiques.
Beaufort House's spacious rooms reflect the character and charm of a bygone era, including fresh flowers from the garden and sumptuous tea stations. Each room is named for one of the home’s previous owners and features complimentary Wi-Fi, pillow-top beds with white Egyptian sheets, feather down pillows, pure New Zealand wool blankets, feather down comforters and quilts. Tranquil views overlook the vineyard, garden, hills or sea. Each room has a spacious en suite bathroom with fluffy Egyptian towels and natural New Zealand toiletries.
Oamaru, New Zealand
Built as a private home in 1889, Pen-y-bryn Lodge sits atop South Hill, one of Oamaru’s most sought-after districts. The single-story timber residence with five elegant rooms hold true to its Victorian heritage while providing the all the comforts and amenities of a modern luxury lodge. The home is filled with antiques and furnishings that date back to the original owners, plus pieces left the second family who owned the house from 1923 to 1994—including a competition-size billiards table. High ceilings, tall windows, stained glass accents and ornate English oak woodwork and flooring are found throughout the lodge. Each guest room is distinct and spacious with an en suite bathroom, sitting space and original artwork.
Dining is a highlight of any visit to Pen-y-bryn, where guests share elegant meals at a long table next to the fireplace. The lodge is a member of both the Slow Food movement and the Chaine des Rotisseurs, taking pride in serving seasonal, local and healthful foods. Much of the produce comes from their own garden, and what the hosts cannot grow on site, they source from local and sustainable farms.
