I stayed two nights at Mike and Jenny’s Apartment 1 (downstairs) and couldn’t have been more comfortable or happier. The studio is spacious, very private and quiet, there’s a gorgeous view straight down to the water across a lovely garden, and you can hear the ocean crashing. Great as a base, good walks from here along the beaches. Jenny is a terrific hostess, she even organised an excellent kayak trip for me on Caitlin’s kayaks which was a highlight of my trip. A very comfortable bed and a v.g restaurant, The Point, two minutes away.
Thanks so much for our stay at your fabulous spot. In spite of the damp conditions, we have enjoyed our stay. Your hospitality has been 1st class, including the special extra (😆). Highly recommended. Deb, Margaret and Keith Morriss (Wellington and Feilding, New Zealand)
We found this place just browsing the Internet and it looked to be a nice location near the ocean and the rooms looked okay. Situated at 7 Marine terrace Kaka point. On our arrival we were met by Jenny. Well, what a live wire she was. So full of energy and a really nice warm welcome made you feel at home immediately. Our unit was located on the ground floor with the most magnificent view of the bay and coast line. We entered the room and stood in awe. It looked like a show home. Modern, beautifully clean, Queen size double bed, good quality linen and pleanty of big soft pillows. Both bed sides had a small table and lamp. There was a large settee and a large TV 50 + inches. The floor had nice tiles had fitted carpet in the lounge bedroom area. There is a dining table and small cook top facilities plus a microwave. All the utensils were high quality. There was standard tea and coffee making plus an espresso coffee machine. The bathroom area was also modern and clean with piping hot water. Towels were a good size unlike some stays were its more a hand towel. The place was just a pleasure to stay in and Jenny was a magnificent host. If anybody went and stayed and came away with a pile of complaints you must be a complete misery. If you are on your way through to Moeraki Boulders and beyond, this might be a consideration for you. Jenny and Mike!! Have made a huge effort and the place is a real diamond find.…
Jenny warmly welcomed us and from that point on the stay was easy. Accommodation for us (2) was spacious, warm and incredibly comfortable. A kitchen that allows you to cook anything as long as you come prepared, as we did, there is no grocery store in the village. A local pub down the stairs only a 2 minute walk. A beautiful sandy beach down the stairs only 2 minutes away. So many great and easy walks at your doorstep, this place is a must. Mike and Jenny, legends, leave you alone, let you relax do your own thing, unless there are whales in the bay. Majestical.
Jenny was so welcoming from the moment we arrived. Super helpful and even made us some paua fritters to try - they were scrumptious. We stayed in Unit 2 - very comfy bed and had everything you need. Close to Nugget Point and other Catlins spots. Just a few minutes to the local pub/restaurant for dinner (be sure to book as the restaurant is small and busy). Such a lovely spot with great sea views and beach walks!
