Cape du Couedic Lighthouse Keepers Heritage Accommodation
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 7, 2012

We rented one of the lighthouse cottages at Cape du Couedic and some friends rented the cottage next door. They were really well equipped for families with plenty of space for everyone, comfy beds, lots of games etc - the only thing missing was a BBQ. The setting of the cottages is wonderrful - an easy walk to see the NZ Fur Seals at Admiralty Arch and plenty of magnificent views all around. All in all, a perfect couple of nights.

Dear Guest 1705Steph,

Thank you for sharing your experience of staying at the lighthouse keeper’s cottages at Cape du Couedic. As you have found, as Parndana, Karatta and Troubridge Lodges are located close to each other they offer an ideal accommodation arrangement for families travelling together. We’re so pleased that your group enjoyed the nearby attractions of the New Zealand Fur Seal Colony and Cape du Couedic’s stunning coastal scenery as well as the indoor comforts offered by Troubridge Lodge. We will certainly consider including barbeques to the guest facilities as you have suggested.

overwhelming quiet except for the wind whistling round the chimneys. No ghosts noted in spite of references in the visitors book! Appreciate running water, fully functioning bathroom and a large fridge - with electricity! Plenty of history about but we had to push ourselves to get out there to "do" the history, it was so relaxing. Can recommend a two night stay but bring your own supplies :-)

Stayed in one of the Assistant light house keeper cottages (with the mice!) for 2 nights. Excellent accommodation, and plenty to keep one occupied. You must be self-sufficient although the Park shop does have some supplies. Weather can be cold and wild, even in winter but it's atmospheric. Highly recommended.

The rennovated cottages are located on pristine coastline and were a great base for our KI holiday. The amenity was great and appropriate for the setting, no TV or phone reception and we brought everything in but tons of atmosphere just metres from wildlife and a wild and rugged coast

Stayed three nights in the Parndana Lodge. Wonderful experience, my girlfriend and I loved the seclusion of the place, its proximity to other interesting sights within the National Park, and the large number of wallabies running around the place.

Would definitely return, and would bring friends next time - the cottage has three ample bedrooms, a huge kitchen, and a veranda that cries out for sitting in the sun and sipping some wine. Highly recommended.

The lighthouse keepers cottage at Cape du Couedic is very well equipped, everything you'd hope for is there. A really worthwhile stay in such a beautiful, remote place.

Stayed 4 nights in Parndana Lodge, loved it!. Stunning location; walked down to Admirals Arch each evening- loved the scenery, fur seals, Tammar wallabies right next to the Lodge etc. Remarkable Rocks truly remarkable! A photographer's paradise. Loved the "feel" of the cottages- beautiful stone buildings, heritage listed, gave a sense of the history and isolation. Rooms spacious, clean, furnished in keeping with the era, beds comfortable. Kitchen well appointed. Only criticism would be of the bathroom- clean but basic, not heated. Also, would like to see a BBQ installed.
