Cardno's was a perfect holiday stay for us. Our unit was spotlessly clean and so comfortable and cosy. We loved pulling back the curtains each morning to see the spectacular view. Clive and Robyn were the perfect hosts-we wanted for nothing. If we return to the Catlins in the future we will definitely stay here again; and we will recommend... More

We recently spent 4 days staying at this most amazing accommodation in Kaka Point. We were in the beachfront access unit for 3 nights which was decorated to a very high standard and was super clean and warm with a very comfortable bed, we wanted for nothing more. We loved the wee touches like the chocolates, magazines and even binoculars... More

The studio room was decorated and well maintained to a very high standard. Although I wanted the 1 bedroom apartment, the studio room offered a bit more privacy. The chocolates on arrival was a nice touch as well as the use of binoculars and being offered some tasty homegrown tomatoes. Robyn went out of her way to get the internet... More

Superb situation. The hosts were friendly and most informative. The whole place was spotlessly clean with excellent facilities. We were in the smallest unit without the sea view but spent our time exploring this wonderful area.

A very friendly welcome started a thoroughly enjoyable stay here. We were in Unit 1 which overlooked the sea. We were very surprised how beautiful the Catlins area was as we had never thought of visiting this area previously. Nugget Point was beautiful even in the mist and there were lots of fur seals to be seen even without binoculars... More

Lovely spot. We had Unit 2 at the end of the building. I had a lovely sleep with a fantastic view. Luggage rack and a handy bench for more luggage, which is lacking is a lot of places.

Clever photography on the website gave the impression you stepped right out the door on to the beach (which is in fact about 200m away down the hill and past other houses), so was slightly disappointed on arrival. However, a very clean room, comfy and a great view - particularly good for sunrise over the beach and we were inspired... More

Thank you for your comments. We are not trying to mislead anyone with our website photos. If you look at all our photos I think you will find its obvious we are not on the beach, plus there is a map showing our location. We do have great sea views which we show in our photos taken from the units.... More

We love Kaka Point and Cardno's rooms. This time we've traveled with another couple from overseas and have to give them our favorite room with the view, so we've stayed in the budget unit. I was a bit upset when I saw it first time, but at the end I quite liked it. It looks like a cosy kiwi batch... More
