We stayed in the beachfront apartment attached to the owner's home. There's a private entrance, and inside all the furnishings are top-notch and clean. The bed is extremely comfortable. We cooked and enjoyed our own dinner the one night we were there, and enjoyed the mini kitchen very much. Although there is no TV or Internet coverage, there's music available... More

We stayed one night on a tour of Otago and Southland. We stayed in the studio Accomodation that was attached the owners house. We received a lovely warm welcome from Dani on arrival and was then left to our own devices. The studio was perfect for what we needed. The view onto the beach was stunning at sunset and sunrise....

Wow...it's hard to describe how wonderful this place really is. The cottage is just gorgeous...clean, very well equipped and views to die for. We saw dolphins frolic in the surf, heard penguins chatting under and around the cottage at night and woke up to the most beautiful sunrise...just perfect, wished we would have booked for longer.

We stayed in one of the boutique studios. It's very nicely decorated and very cosy. It was so nice to wake up and have the beautiful view of the bay right from our bed! The bathroom is large and very modern. We felt right at home. Laundry is shared by both studios and laundry soap is provided. Set at a... More

We stayed here for one night on our short tour through The Catlins en route to Invercargill.This entire region is absolutely stunning. Great for photography. We stayed in the Boutique Studio Left. Collecting the key from just down the road was no problem. Good parking area right outside our unit. The location of these units is superb: being able to... More

We recently stayed for one night while touring through the catlins . We realized when we booked that one night was not going to be enough and that proved correct. Unfortunately our schedule prevented a longer stay. What a beautiful location and great accommodation. The attention to detail throughout the studio at 507 was much appreciated, as was the amount...

The apartment is as described direct onto the spectacular beach, the golden sands spread over at least 3 miles before you, with deep blue/green sea and entertaining Hector dolphins putting on their own show each morning and evening. There is nothing else at curio bay other then the beach so if you want to relax and do nothing it's perfect,... More

We stayed for only one night in the left Curio Bay studio. The studio was great, huge bed, nice bathroom, kitchen, couch and an amazing view to the beach and the ocean. You should be aware that there is no cell phone reception or TV, but this was no problem for us at all. We could see dolphins in the... More

It is such a treat to wake up, open the curtains and see a beautiful deserted beach...before you even get out of bed. This is a super comfortable, clean place. Very plush, in fact. Could kick myself we only stayed here one night. Penguins and surfers on the beach. We loaded up on food and wine in Invercargill and prepared... More
