We originally wanted to stay at Catlins Farmstay but they were full so June kindly helped us book this place which worked out perfectly as we were the only ones in the house and it was a fairly quick drive to Curio Bay where we wanted to see the yellow-eyed penguins. This is a self-contained apartment style accommodation, there are... More

This was an absolutely marvellous find, great views and such fantastic value. It is not well advertised and thus not easy to find, but well worth it when you do. It is not a conventional motel, there are no staff on site, it is described as "serviced accommodation". However, practically speaking it doesn't make a lot of difference. Help is... More

We stayed at the Anchorage in February 2013 as part of a nine week trip round NZ. The accommodation benefits from a wonderful quiet location with great views. The room was well serviced. Although the décor was rather tired and the queen bed not great, the room was excellent value for money and the relatively minor drawbacks are more than... More

This is a very spacious and clean apartment. (We had the one that slept 4) with a large lounge, 2 lovely bedrooms and large kitchen/diner. The views from the balcony are amazing. There is also a useful laundry room. An excellent location for touring the Catlins and only a few minutes drive from the pengiuins at Curio Bay!

We spent one night here on a sunny Winter's drive through the Catlins. We booked two adjacent units upstairs for four adults and one child. Highlights were the large space, the balcony with a peaceful view of the Waikawa Harbor, and a fairly well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Heating the place required a degree of competence with working a wood-burning... More

The Anchorage is on a dead-end road leading to a small jetty. It is set above the road up a short drive and has a fabulous view of the bay. We sat on the terrace outside our room with a glass of wine and just soaked up the view. Lots of seabirds, especially oystercatchers. Our room was very comfortable with... More
