Lovely spot. We had Unit 2 at the end of the building. I had a lovely sleep with a fantastic view. Luggage rack and a handy bench for more luggage, which is lacking is a lot of places. Friendly welcome, clean and comfortable. The sun wasn't on the deck anymore by the time we arrived but there was a warm sunny grassy area in front of our deck. It was wonderfully relaxing. I wished we could have stayed another night. We walked to The Point Cafe for drinks and a wonderful steak dinner. Highly recommend, and hope to someday return.

Clever photography on the website gave the impression you stepped right out the door on to the beach (which is in fact about 200m away down the hill and past other houses), so was slightly disappointed on arrival. However, a very clean room, comfy and a great view - particularly good for sunrise over the beach and we were inspired to make the amble down to sit direct on the beach itself!

Thank you for your comments. We are not trying to mislead anyone with our website photos. If you look at all our photos I think you will find its obvious we are not on the beach, plus there is a map showing our location. We do have great sea views which we show in our photos taken from the units. It is easy access to the beach from our units and most people that stay here enjoy their walks.

We love Kaka Point and Cardno's rooms. This time we've traveled with another couple from overseas and have to give them our favorite room with the view, so we've stayed in the budget unit. I was a bit upset when I saw it first time, but at the end I quite liked it. It looks like a cosy kiwi batch and quite private. Its quite nice for people traveling on a budget.

Thank you for your comments. Hope your friends enjoyed their visit too. Unit 3 is cosy but if you want the sea views Unit 1 & 2 are a must. Hope we will see you again for your 4th visit.

We stayed in the budget unit at the rear without views. The unit was very clean & comfortable and equipped with microwave,toaster & jug. The hosts were friendly and helpful. In fact we left a transistor radio & they transported the radio to Dunedin to make it easy for us to collect. Outstanding!! It is close to the beach & the exceptional natural attractions of the Catlins. There are limited cafes/pubs in the Catlins but a short walk away is the local pub which serves good quality pub fare,especially the blue cod meal. I would recommend staying here on a trip to explore the Catlins

Room Tip: If you are on a limited budget select Unit 3. Unit 1 & Unit 2 are more modern & have great views of the coast and are more pleasant units.

Thank you for your review. Yes Kaka Point is a great place to stay and it is so handy to Dunedin. Great place to come for a weekend getaway.

We recently spent 2 nights here and absolutely recommend it. Wished we could have stayed longer and would love to return. Furnishings were very smart and comfortable, spotlessly clean, kitchen well stocked with cooking equipment, beautiful views, great decks out back and front and really helpful hosts . The chocolates were appreciated! Kaka Point is a lovely place to visit the Catlins from.
