Cardno’s was had been given good reports on Tripadvisor so we decided that we would book in for 2 nights on our recent trip. We were not disappointed, the room was spacious and very clean with spectacular views of the coast line – what more can I say! A nice feature was a pair of binoculars that were in the room that you could use to look along the coast or out to sea. If the weather was a little better we would have utilised the deck area attached to the room. Cardno's is walking distance to the local pub, which after a busy day was great to relax in, with good pub food. Cardno's was an ideal place to base ourselves for a visit to The Catlins area of NZ. Cathedral Cave is great, but you have to get the timing right for low tide (Clyde had put a leaflet in room information stating when low-tide would be for the following few days), Curio Bay where we spotted a couple of Yellow Eyed penguins, McLeans Falls, etc it is all just a beautiful area that is not commercialised. Two nights is not quite enough to see it all.

If we are in the area again we would not hesitate to book at Cardno’s again.

These apartments are a great base to explore local beaches and Nugget Point. Clean and well appointed, the hosts are very freindly. The pub on the water front does great Fish & chips. If your lucky you will see peguins at veiewing point. We saw two at 14.30 in the afternoon.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

These apartments are a great base to explore local beaches and Nugget Point. They didn't disappoint in any way - but don't expect too much from the local amenities at Kaka Point or elsewhere in the Catlins. If in doubt, stock up in Balclutha.

Thank you for your comments. Kaka Point is a beautiful place to stay, and if you wish to cook your own meals it does pay to visit the supermarket in Owaka or Balclutha before you get to Kaka Point.

Spacious, clean comfortable room, but the decor of room was without much style.
Nice patio, but it is located just beside the street, no privacy
Located in quiet street: you look out at other houses and further you can see the sea
Reception was not particularly cordial and 5% commission for a payment by credit card is somewhat exaggerated
Wifi is oinly free for a short period

Thank you for your comments. We have not been charging 5% on credit card payments since we became owners of Cardnos in September, so if you check your statement I think you will find you havent been charged. (It does cost us 5% to make a credit card payment on site, therefore we do prefer if our customers can book and pay on our website.) Im sorry you did not like the decor but since we have been here most of our visitors comment on how refreshing and lovely the units are. Wifi vouchers are offered free and we are quite happy to supply extras if usage is not suffient. We try to make all our visitors welcome and try to encourage people to ask if they need anything.

Stayed here for 1 night as part of weekend trip to the Catlins.

Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Chocolates on arrival was a bonus! Also a pair of binoculars are provided to look out to the sea.

There was a small decked area outside which was great to catch the sun in the morning whilst eating breakfast. The view of the sea and beach is partial ( this is from room 2).

Nugget point is 15 min drive away down a gravel road.

Only one bar/restaurant in town which is 5 min walk away - served generous portions of typical pub style food.

Would definitely stay here again if passing through. Recommended.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a better sea/beach view.
