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.
