“Slice of Paradise in the Catlins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

We enjoyed a delightful one-night stay at Kenthurst Lodge, a modern property with an amazing view over Kaka Point. The bedroom, bathroom and shared guest lounge have every comfort (including a very comfortable bed), beautifully decorated rooms with a terrace or lounge from which to enjoy the garden. The home-made biscuits and petits fours were a lovely touch, and delicious! The 'help-yourself' breakfast in the guest lounge is a great idea. We were made very welcome and looked after excellently. It's only a few minutes drive to Nugget Point from here, and a couple of minutes walk to the Point pub for dinner. A great place from which to explore the Catlins.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2010

Beautiful room with a breakfast room complete with complimentary laundry, snacks and beautiful gardens made our stay great. However Heather and John's helpfulness in recommending great adventures and places to visit, doing our laundry, proactively helping with our future plans for our trip when our next stay on a cruise was canceled, and making my birthday very special with a gift was so extra-ordinary. We felt like we were staying with friends rather than a hotel! Your visit will be memorable as ours was.
