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. Friendly welcome, clean and comfortable. The sun wasn't on the deck anymore by the time we arrived but there was a warm... More

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

Thank you for your comments. Hope your friends enjoyed their visit too. Unit 3 is cosy but if you want the sea views Unit 1 & 2 are a must. Hope we will see you again for your 4th visit. More

We stayed in the budget unit at the rear without views. The unit was very clean & comfortable and equipped with microwave,toaster & jug. The hosts were friendly and helpful. In fact we left a transistor radio & they transported the radio to Dunedin to make it easy for us to collect. Outstanding!! It is close to the beach &... More

We recently spent 2 nights here and absolutely recommend it. Wished we could have stayed longer and would love to return. Furnishings were very smart and comfortable, spotlessly clean, kitchen well stocked with cooking equipment, beautiful views, great decks out back and front and really helpful hosts .

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights here. We booked the unit without a view because it was the only one available. We were very pleasantly surprised. The unit was extremely well presented and had a lovely private and sheltered deck. Very cozy inside, the only thing someone could complain about would be the lack of a full sized... More

Thanks for your great comments. If we put a dining table in that unit we would have to remove the couch. I think the couch is a better option if you have been sightseeing all day and want to relax. More
