Clean and nice motel unit with sea view over the Pacific Ocean. Very much of its type - which is to say simple furnishings etc. But what's important is the service (good), the cleanliness (very good) and nothing shabby or old (none of that!)

We arrived late after exploring all day. We were ready for a good nights rest. Exactly what we got in a very clean and comfortable room. The beds and bedding were very comfy. We would have extended our stay had there been availability.Well priced. Very close to where you view the yellow eyed penguins.

Lovely and clean accommodation, most of them with sea view. We stayed in the unit at the end with a lovely view, garden and privacy. Free wi-fi and good advice on where to go and what to see. I consider it a very good place to explore the Catlins from. We spent 3 nights there. Very friendly hosts indeed!

We stayed in the self contained unit for 2 nights. It was spotless and very comfortable. The view was amazing. The bedroom was nice and quiet and much to our surprise we slept in until 9am, which is not like us at all. We hope to come back again to explore more of the Caitlins.

My partner and I made a booking at Cardno's for the 27th January, our room was well furnished, spacious and tastefully decorated. The chocolates were also a nice added touch. The owner was somewhat helpful when talking about what to do in the area and seemed friendly enough. However, the only let down of this accommodation was as we were... More

We never thought that you had stolen our plates or binoculars, which I thought I had explained to you. Often our guests take utensils, plates and binoculars while out exploring and picnicking and forget they have them in their car or chilly bins. You were not singled out, we check with all our guests that the binoculars have been returned... More

We had the pleasure of spending two nights in the self contained accommodation which proved to be really wonderful. The rooms were very clean and equipped, the towels and linen were clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The best part however was the view from the lounge and patio, truly awesome, the view and sound of the Pacific really... More

Couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation for 2 days - hosts provided options for sightseeing and a priceless map; facilities as new; stunning view of Nugget Point from our room with truly memorable sunrise and sunsets.

We only stayed for 1 night in Cardno's at Kaka Point but wish it could have been for longer. The area is stunningly beautiful. The accommodation itself was great. Clean, tidy, comfortable, and the staff were very friendly. I really hope to get the chance to come back again.
