Activities in the Westport area

You can also just relax and take a leisurely walk along the sandy beach right on our doorstep as well as a round of golf at the Carters Beach Golf Club and enjoy a drink and lunch/ dinner at the Restaurant /Bar next door.


Completed in December 2014 to the highest earthquake code and fire standards, each 30m2 beachside studio is soundproof and cosy due to its concrete floor/wall construction and northerly aspect to capture the sun’s passive heat.

Each of the 10 boutique studios has a kitchen with a dishwasher, ceiling fans, underfloor bathroom heating, 50+ sky tv and 40-inch flatscreen tv, a range of king, queen and queen + single beds, occasional chairs, free 500mb wifi, filtered water and a balcony or deck.

We, at Carters by the sea, pride ourselves in providing a relaxing, friendly and enjoyable stay while you visit the Westport area.
