We stayed 2 nights at this very comfortable place & absolutely loved our time here. Nothing was too much trouble & Heather helped us plan our day around the tides so we could see as much as possible. Our fantastic hosts lent us a pair of excellent binoculars so we had a pair each for spotting the tiny yellow-eyed Penguins... More

From arrival to being waved away from the drive our stay could not have been made better if we had been in a seven star hotel in Dubai The house, our room the lounge were just home from home and spotlessly clean and tidy Heathers delicacies, not wishing to spoil the surprise for others, were just incredible. Thank you both... More

Our family stayed 3 glorious nights with Heather and John @ Kenthurst Lodge, Kaka Point and it was absolutely wonderful. We gained insightful information about the Caitlins and a friendship for life. From the warm welcome to a sad farewell our stay was impeccably managed. We ate fresh produce for breakfast, beautifully presented in a lovely functional lounge/bfast room. We... More

I chose this B&B mainly because it was one of the only places in the area that had a king size bed, but we ended up loving it for so many more reasons than that! Heather and John are lovely, friendly people. Heather welcomed us in when we arrived, cold and muddy, and showed us to a really nicely done... More

Heather and John were fantastic hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble (including sorting car problems). Everything you could ever want in bedroom/bathroom including really luxurious bed. Separate comfortable lounge and breakfast room. Great views of sea and 5 minutes walk to local pub for evening meal. The whole experience was welcoming and friendly and we loved it. Would... More

We stayed in this B & B for one night. I wasn't sure about choosing it at first due to the photographs in the website. I am so glad I did. The photographs do not do it any justice. This beautiful and modern house is located one of the side streets in a quiet residential area. The house is big... More

This is the most fantastic one of B&B we've lived in New Zealand, the decoration & environment is so gorgeous. And Heather is a very nice & humorous hostess, who give us a lot of help. We strongly recommend our friend spending several days of their trips in this B&B.

The room was spacious, very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. We had our own sitting-room with TV if we wanted to see what the outside world was up to. Treated to yummy home baked goodies to go with coffee or tea, a plentiful and wide selection for continental breakfast. Heather suggested places to visit, places to go for dinner, whatever... More

We stayed two nights at this wonderful B&B with the best hosts we ever had. We enjoyed not only the comfortable room but also the yummy breakfast, especially the delicious cakes and cookies Heather pampered us with. John and Heather also recommended great trips around the Catlins giving us the opportunity to see penguins, sea lions and a lot of... More
