Binoculars to see the ocean view; welcome chocolates; extra comfortable beds; relaxed hospitality. On day One we had to stay in - it poured with rain & anyway, my travelling companion was ill - couldn't have and a better place to sit it out. What with the view, the comfortable seating, and all.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were overwhelmed by the standard of the accommodation and the stunning views from our unit. We're on our last leg of a three and a half week tour of both the North and South Islands so stayed in a wide variety of hotels in some superb locations but this for us was one... More

We stayed one night at Cradnos, the service and accommodation was wonderful. Robyn was extremely helpful. She advised us as to where we could see penguins, which we had been looking for all day. We went to the DOC hide and sure enough we saw them. We had wifi, a very comfortable bed with quality linens, the shower was very... More

We were fortunate enough to be in Unit 2 facing the ocean and the views are mind boggling thought out so well there is binoculars for your usage. The owners were very polite offering bits and pieces when we cooked fresh salmon direct from Stewart Island. As we had holidayed at Stewart Island and had plenty spare salmon we gave... More

The unit was nicely decorated, with comfy seats and bed.The hosts were very helpful with their local knowledge and helped with our requests of laundry and extra internet. The binoculars were excellent when viewing the... More

A lovely place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. About 2 mins walk from the beach. Warm and cosy. I had the room without the view, but it was lovely and quiet, and the view was a 2 second walk out the door! Very nice.

My partner and I stayed at Cardno's accommodation for one night in July. The studio was well equipped, clean and modern. Owner was very helpful and friendly. Great views over looking Kaka Point, worth staying in the unit with sea view option. Binoculars were a nice little touch to keep an eye out for any sea life! Would stay again... More

This is all you need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. Modern, stylish and clean unit with good heating, comfortable bedroom and lounge, small kitchen and great view over Kaka Point beach. Also in a great location, just a couple of minutes walk to the dairy and bar/restaurant. Lots of tui and bellbird. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

It was snowing for the final 30 mins of our drive from Owaka to Kaka Pt, after a warm welcome by our host, walking into a lovely warm studio unit was wonderful. The heater was still on and so was the heated towel rail in the bathroom-bliss. Once we had thawed out we also noticed some chocolates in a little... More

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!)
