Couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation for 2 days - hosts provided options for sightseeing and a priceless map; facilities as new; stunning view of Nugget Point from our room with truly memorable sunrise and sunsets.

Room Tip: Perfect place to launch your Catlins expedition

We arrived to Kaka point on our first day traveling along Catlins Coast. We have spent one night in this amazing place and our stay was great! The apartment was clean, warm and cozy. The view through the window was just breathetaking. The hosts always happy to help and very friendly. I highly recommend Cardno´s if you´re visiting this wonderful corner of the world.

We only stayed for 1 night in Cardno's at Kaka Point but wish it could have been for longer. The area is stunningly beautiful. The accommodation itself was great. Clean, tidy, comfortable, and the staff were very friendly. I really hope to get the chance to come back again.

Stayed at Cardno's on our recent South Island trip
Clive and Robin very helpful hosts and showed us the available accommodation before checking in.
Very clean and well furnished - beautiful view over the water
Original plan was to stayed for one night but enjoyed the area so much we stayed for 2.
Clive particularly helpful with tips about the area and our early morning and evening excursions provided some wonderful sightings up close of yellow eyed penguins and sea lions and beautiful and wild beaches.
The local pub and food store takes you back in time and the locals are really worth meeting
Also the lighthouse at Nugget Point ( very close by) is worth seeing at sunset and very close to a yellow eyed penguin viewing area
Take your time and explore some of the back and side roads - so much too enjoy
Oh and by the way they have real milk!

Room Tip: Owners very happy to show you the available rooms before you check in

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 it to our travelling friends.

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 were supplied for our use while we were there. Our 4th night was spent in the smaller studio unit which was just as comfortable,clean and warm.
Kaka Point is a great base for viewing the Catlins area and a couple of "must do's" are to visit the Yellow Eyed Penguin hide at dawn or dusk and also to go and see the Nugget Point Lighthouse..spectacular view and easily accessible. Even though the weather wasn't the best while there, we felt that we saw this part of the Coastline as nature intended, raw and natural so don't be afraid to get off the beaten track or you could miss some true delights.
