Whilst the unit was very clean and tidy, and able to cater for the disabled, the advertised high speed wifi only worked for a couple of hours in 3 days in all the properties. As this was the main reason for booking Harakeke, so we could skype our family, and with no cell coverage to let them know. The owner... More

We only stayed for one night here but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is absolutely huge and the view from the verandah are spectacular. It was very well equipped and clean. If I were more self sufficient I would have liked to have stayed longer but as there are very few places to eat I personally would struggle... More

We had a week staying at Waikava View in the Lodge & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the deck to the harbour is glorious. The Lodge is spacious, with enough room for two small families to share (& two bathrooms), well equipped kitchen, large living space & comfortable bedding. The house was immaculately presented. Make sure you have... More

Lovely clean and cosy unit! Comfy bed, and nice little deck to relax on - wish we could have stayed longer!! Take cash, as there is a dinky place to get fish and chips within walking distance of the unit. The local information centre has lovely helpful staff who are only too happy to advise on what to see.

We stayed in one of the small units - Harakeke. It was good basic accommodation although you need to self cater as there is nothing close to eat at apart from a fried takeaway truck in the evening. The bed was very comfortable. We would have stayed closer to Owaka if we had known it was not such a long... More

Would have got a perfect 5*, but for the fact that it was swelteringly hot when we arrived and there was no fan to help cool off (only a heater) and I struggled to get the shower to stay at a steady temperature (swinging between burning and cold). The unit was lovely, the bed was comfortable, the deck was a... More

We stayed three nights with quiet and peaceful environment. Very close to museum and information center. 3-5 min drive to propoise bay and curio bay where we can encounter yellow eye penguin in late evening. Hector dolphin can also be found in propoise bay. Good choice to stay here to explore Catlins.

Great place to stay nice and close to everything you want to see around the Catlins. We stayed with8 people and had plenty of space or hot water for the showers. We just went for a weekend and I would of liked to have heads up that there wasn't even a dairy close by for some milk but saying that... More

We stayed in the unit called Harakeke for one night stop. It has one bedroom, large lounge and well equipped kitchenette even has an egg poacher very welcome. The free Laundry was an unexpected extra and also very welcome. The unit itself was beautifully kept and very very clean. The view from the window was amazing and so peaceful in... More
