Wapiti Park Homestead, located on the West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand, offers superb accommodation for the discerning traveler seeing a very special experience. Hosted by Beverley and Grant Muir, a stay at this property offers guests an extraordinary opportunity to share genuine West Coast Elk farm life, close to spectacular World Heritage landscapes and remarkable outdoor and sporting opportunities.

Surrounding the modern country homestead are acres of parkland, the home of New Zealand’s only herd of pedigree Rocky Mountain Elk (Wapiti). Guests have the exclusive opportunity to accompany Grant to feed them while on a tour of the property. Helicopter flights from Wapiti to the wilderness to hunt Chamois and Himalayan Tahr attract hunters from around the world, and so a significant focus of the house is a magnificent trophy room.

The main bedrooms are truly spacious with high cathedral ceilings, en-suites, and a charming shared sitting room with calming vistas of grazing Wapiti, exactly what is needed after a spectacular drive through Arthur's Pass. The ground floor features an enormous lounge and the separate trophy room/games room.

Grant usually cooks the bounteous country breakfasts and dinners which are served in a very comfortable separate dining room. An extensive range of premium New Zealand wines is on offer to complement meals.

Due to the properties’ location, a huge range of activities are on offer. Just north of Wapiti Park are the fishing and sporting attractions of Lake Ianthe, perhaps one of the West Coast’s most beautiful and dramatic lakes. Southwards are the Glaciers and World Heritage country with jet boat trips down the Waitangi river into pristine New Zealand native bush.
