About Us

This is a continuation of Jan and Stephen’s Coastingnz blog which is now full. So much great imagery thanks to Stephen’s lovely photographs means we used our allotted memory a little more quickly than most. Lesson learnt – resize images…….

Breakers in the setting sunlight

Just to recap though Jan and Stephen are passionate about the outdoors. They love getting out and exploring the West Coast – their home and sharing what they are lucky enough to call their backyard with – well everyone really. There is so much to see and do here on the West Coast. They enjoy mountain biking, hiking, surfing and walking the numerous West Coast beaches.

On occasions they do travel predominately to other areas of the South Island and occasionally to the North and overseas and they share any explorations that they think may be of interest on those travels too.

Ansel and Ziggy enjoying some beach time

Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation – a boutique bed & breakfast on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. Their accommodation is beachfront overlooking the Tasman Sea. They have two faithful friends accompanying them on most of their discoveries – Ziggy and Ansel both German Short Haired Pointers (GSP).

We hope you enjoy following us on our adventures and exploring the many wonders of the West Coast – untamed natural wilderness in our slice of paradise that we’re lucky enough to call home.
