West Coast Hospitality

At Breakers you will enjoy true West Coast hospitality with your New Zealand born hosts. Breakers operates as a boutique bed & breakfast by Jan and Stephen with the help of their two faithful companions Nico and Ziggy (the family dogs). Jan and Stephen are both passionate about the region, the land and history. They enjoy the outdoors and love to share their expertise and experiences with you - their guests.

Jan - Your Host

Jan is your main host at Breakers and is originally from Invercargill - the deep south of New Zealand. Invercargill is where she was born and raised before moving to Queenstown for 17 years. Jan worked intermittently in the tourism industry as well as legal and building industries. Before moving to the West Coast, Jan worked for a guiding company in the accounts department and doing some occasional guiding. She can provide you with a wealth of information, advice and suggestions on how best to maximise your experience of the West Coast as well as the South Island in general. Jan loves the outdoors and enjoys mountain biking and hiking.


Stephen was born and bred on the West Coast. He has lived here all his life with the exception of a two year break where he lived in the UK, France and Portugal. He also spent six months in Australia. Stephen is very passionate about the West Coast and the wonderful experiences it has to offer visitors. He enjoys mountain biking and hiking as well as kayaking and surfing. Stephen is also an avid amateur photographer and doesn't go far without his camera. The photos on the website are all taken by Stephen. Stephen is often on site, but as he is a self-employed electrician, he is generally at work during the day. If not, he can be found in the garage tinkering with his mountain bikes.

The "Boys"

We have two dogs at Breakers - more fondly known as our children!

The "boys" have their own area and do not interact with the guests at Breakers unless they are invited. You will see them playing out on the grounds though and down on the beach - they would like to say "on their beach"!
