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!)

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
