A wonderful top-floor B&B apartment (Lighthouse Unit) perched at the edge of rocks with spectacular views across the wild Catlins coast and beaches. About 5 km from the nearest shop and pub restaurant at Kaka Point: 3 km is partially sealed road winding along the coast. The unit is well-designed: warm and compact with bed (sloping ceiling), sofa, table &... More

We were on a family holiday when we stayed in the SeaLion Unit at Nugget Lodge, and it didn't disappoint. There were a couple of downsides, in that our upstairs neighbours in the Lighthouse Unit got up at 5:15am and clomped around for 2 hours, when we had intended to wake, and that the hot water cylinder for their unit...

'Lighthouse Unit' definitely preferable. However we have stayed in the Ground Floor Unit 'Sealion' which is still fantastic. Outstanding Ocean and Coast views. We found copious numbers of Mussels (only took legal 25 p/p ) on the rocks nearby. Either lie in Bed or sit on the Lounge Suite and absorb the sensational views. If you wish you can be... More

So glad we stayed at Nugget Lodge. Pauline was very friendly and offered great advice for where to see sea lions. Had we been traveling west, she had all sorts of maps and brochures to give us regarding the Catlins. The unit is very well equipped and had one of the few ovens we had during our 2 week trip....

What a beautiful place. We only stayed for 1 night but wished we could have stayed longer. It is overlooking the beach and the sunrise and is in a perfect position. At dawn we visited the seals on the beach. We were delivered an excellent breakfast in the morning. Would have preferred the upstairs (Lighthouse) unit but it had already... More

We stayed in the Lighthouse Unit for 3 nights and it was absolutely fantastic. The accommodation was great with all the facilities you need to be self-sufficient if you want to be and the views .....!! From our bed(!) you could look out over the sea and once out of bed you could look out on the lighthouse (about a... More

We spent three nights in the upstairs (Lighthouse) unit and couldn't have wished for more wonderful views. The studio was well equipped,the king size bed being set back in an alcove and with sitting and dining areas to the fore. We were warmly welcomed by Pauline who also provided us with a delicious breakfast tray each day with home laid... More

After 2008 and 2011 we stayed again in this wonderful accommodation. We chose every time the Lighthouse Unit, so you have a fantastic view over the ocean and up to the Nugget Lighthouse. Even from your bed you can see the sea. The room is well furnished and nothing is missing. When ever we arrived we felt at home immediately.... More

Great location if you want to stay in the Southland and be able to explore the Nugget Point area. We stayed in the Lighthouse unit which is the upper one with the view of both the beach and the lighthouse. The unit is about a 5 minute drive to the actual lighthouse on the point and you can see it... More
