  • This property is modern, sparking clean and with views to die for. It is far and away the best place we have stayed in on our holiday so far.

    Jenny2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is stunning. Tastefully decorated, brand new and a (luxury) home from home. Would love to have stayed a week or more. Very private, quiet with wonderful sea views and along to the lighthouse. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending. 5 stars.

    Bob And Julie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This ticks all the boxes and then some... Uninterrupted views, thoughtful layout and simple yet stylish fixtures make for what I felt was an incredible experience - be quick to dibsy the master bedroom as the morning view will make you glad you did! Check-in was a breeze and communication top notch! Only sticking point was the listing doesn’t do it justice, I suppose you’ll have to see it to believe it!

    Bryce2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great view of the ocean and a peaceful place. The apartment is modern and new.

    Peggy2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot. You won’t want to leave.

    Katrina2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • These apartments are much better in real life, really close to the beach, restaurant and shop. Great views, really good facilities, would be great for a couple of couples, or families to rent both places, has a nice bbq area out back too. You won’t be disappointed...

    Robyn2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Kaka Point, Otago, New Zealand

    We have two well appointed self contained units on the water's edge in The Catlins. The property borders the Historic Nuggets Lighthouse and Wildlife Reserve. The units have spectacular views of the ocean and private beaches.
  • This is one special place. The view is incomparable, and you are literally on top of the sea looking down the beach one way, and to Nugget Point the other. Our unit (Lighthouse) was sparkling clean, beautifully appointed and a complete treat. Falling asleep to the sound of the sea was really beautiful. Cannot recommend highly enough - best place we have stayed in a month in NZ.

    Michael2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place in the Catlins - fully stocked separate apartment unit with greats beds, bathroom and living room kitchen all with beach and ocean views:) Hosts have been very welcoming and helpful and the area is great.

    Alasdair2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic spot. The inside of this space is tidy and welcoming, but the patio and view made me want to stay and stay. Our host welcomed us personally and was incredibly welcoming and kind. A lovely stay I would book again in a heartbeat!

  • Paulines studio was perfect for our two night stay at Kaka Point, we didn't find ourselves without anything essential and the location was 10/10 ❤️

    Bethany2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We contracted two floors. The space downstairs is large. There are gardens. The views upstairs are superb. The location is very good. The landlord is very friendly and interesting. I am also a diving lover. It is not far from the lighthouse. It only takes ten minutes by car. There are many sheeps across the house. It is dark enough at night and it is a good place for stargazing. !! !!

    Connie2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • this was a last minute deceion -and one I'm so glad to have made! Ticked every box and should get 6 stars for location! Figuring out how to return!

  • Very nice place to travel for 2 people, thank you host for your enthusiasm.

    Zhipeng2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous modern wee unit right opposite the beach. Stunning views, squeaky clean, comfy bed and wonderful hosts. Great communication from Laura if she's not around when you arrive. Lots of local information available I the unit as well. A short drive to Nugget Point to check out the lighthouse and fur seals swimming around the rocks. We also spotted spoonbills roosting in the trees. A nature paradise. We stopped off at Roaring Bay and walked down to the DOC hide. We were there in December and watched the beach for a couple of hours from five pm and saw five Yellow Eyed Penguins swim in to shore and dry off on the rocks below. Amazing! Our host had phoned the local pub for us earlier in the day and told us they were fully booked at the restaurant but bar meals would be available. When we finally arrived there later than planned the staff managed to find us a table after all. Delicious food and wonderful service. Just a short 2 minute walk home as well. We would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed

    Susan2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • This space was sparkling clean and had a nice patio to enjoy the view. Watching the sunrise from the patio window was amazing. We loved staying here. It was walking distance to the beach and a short drive to see the penguins. Definitely recommend this place!!

    Dana2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place and wish I could’ve had a bit more time here. Very clean and Laura was really nice. Very good quality towels, linens, and toiletries. Coffee, tea, and cocoa also provided. Good stopping point to see the Nugget Lighthouse and other points of interests in the south.

    Kimberly2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Really a warm hut, I feel very happy eating a bowl of instant noodles.

    Alice2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with wonderful views. It’s a quick walk to the beach and the cafe. During check in, Laura gave us tips on where and when to see penguins and seals and lent us a pair of binoculars. We had a great time, thank you!

    Yumi2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed staying here. Handy location, short walk down to the beach. Great view, lovely and warm. Quality linens, loved the towels. Laura was very helpful, chatting with her I found out a track I thought was closed had actually opened. The falls on that track were the best on the southern scenic route (McLean falls).

  • I had an awesome stay in Lindsay's place at KaKa Point. Arriving at the place feels like I am rewarding myself to a great place for the night! Especially the sea view and the great amenities provided for cooking your own meal. The toilet is sparkling clean and the place is well maintained! Sufficient heaters in the space as well.

  • Lindsay’s place and KaKa Point were one of the highlights of our trip! I could have sat on the deck and walked the beach for a week - sadly, we only had one night! The studio is beautiful, perfectly decorated, impeccably clean, and the view is amazing!

    Kaka Point, Otago, New Zealand

    King studio, double spa ensuite with spectacular uninterrupted, panoramic, floor to ceiling views of the Pacific Ocean. Perfect for watching the sunrise. Situated in the small seaside township of Kaka Point on the Southern Scenic Route. Native bush walks, Yellow-Eyed Penguin Colony and Seal Colony. Marine birds. Gateway to the Catlins. 100m to patrolled swimming beach, bar and cafe.
    Enjoy 200 degree views of the Ocean from double glazed windows, tinted for privacy. See Nugget Point Lighthouse and spectacular coastal scenery from the comfort and privacy of your room.
    Nugget Point Lighthouse was recently voted #1 most Instagramed lighthouse in New Zealand. When you are there it is clear why. There is a Yellow-Eyed Penguin Colony just as you are about to approach the lighthouse car park (this is clearly signed). Seals are abundant, as are Marine birds. Nugget Point is famous for viewing the Southern lights.
  • An excellent bolt hole for your stay in the Catlins. Very warm, secure and private. Amazing views over the ocean. Short walk to the local inn/restaurant. Would thoroughly recommend Lisa’s place.

    Jocelyn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cosiest little apartment, located right by the beach in Kaka point, i couldn’t have hoped for something better. The views were spectacular and Lisa is super friendly and affectionate and guided us fantastically on where to go and where to eat. She also kept a help book and a a very simple to read map all ready for our convenience. There is a spa in the bathroom which was like a cherry on the cake!! Will definitely come back here if ever I get a chance. Meanwhile you guys should !!!

    Pounawea Waterfront Apartments are cosy two bedroom apartments where you can wake up to the most beautiful sunrises The Catlins have to offer. With ever-changing tidal views of the pounawea estuary, you dont have to go anywhere, but there is the option to enjoy the short bush walks on your doorstep too. Central to the many Catlins attractions like Nugget Point, Surat Bay, Jack's Blowhole and many more you dont have to travel far to get the most out of The Catlins.

    Karin2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • The view is even more incredible in person than the pictures. We saw seals playing in the water from the lounge room! Owaka is just down the road for FourSquare snacks or the Bakehouse takeaway is also yum. Catlins store has a lovely range and the man’s shed out the back has hidden treasures. Petrol station is also handy. Pounawea itself is a very relaxed, coastal location where you can truly sit back and enjoy the view! As Queenslanders, we enjoyed the electric blankets too. Catlins forestry is amazing, so are the beaches. This is a great location to base yourself!

    This newly renovated studio is a great place for couples, with limited ocean views and minutes walk to the beach. A secure garden means no worries about children and animals being in any danger and located 5 minutes out of Kaka Point township. Near the bar and shop and the Nugget Point lighthouse. From here you can easily explore the stunning Catlins coast and all that this area has to offer. A family holiday home at the front of the same building can be booked out separately.

I especially appreciated the handiness of the full kitchen and the comfortable bedding for sleeping. Sabin was welcoming and provided good local info.

  • Great place to stay! Designed with great attention to detail, I was thrilled with the “sea motif” of the room, the windows are really something special. Everything was great, as described in the photos or in the text. There was very good and fast Ubiquiti WiFi, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom had a great shower. Everything was very clean and the host Craig was very warm and friendly! Clear recommendation!

  • Everything was as shown, facilities were clean, smart, and comfortable. It is a campground, and the dividing wall between the two apartments is very thin so you can hear alot and be heard which is hard for groups or young children if you were expecting your own space. Shelley and team are great, easy to cook and perfect location for exploring the Catlins.

    My place is close to City & airport only about 50 minutes drive, beaches within 20 minutes.. You’ll love my place because of The space and country sounds. Lots of animals to meet;) . My place is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travelers.
  • Excellent private space, friendly and welcoming hosts, will stay again

    Michael2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a night at Fiona and Jason's place and we had a fantastic time. A very friendly couple, and we really enjoyed chatting with them. Fiona introduced us to her furry and feathery friends, and we had a well good time hanging out with the animals. We felt at home, and wish we could have stayed longer!

    Michelle2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona is a great host and fresh eggs for breakfast just made our stay absolutely perfect. Contact was easy and quick, and Fiona made sure to help us when a lot of the roads in the south were closed because of the weather. Highly recommended!

    Barbara2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a clean, cozy studio with a comfortable bed, 2 basic chairs (one stored in the closet, along with a small folding table), and an entry area next to the sink/shower area with a separate toilet room.  The kitchenette area includes the countertop area with kettle, toaster, oven/burner, refrig, and cupboards with dishware items for heating/eating small meals. This unit is in a separate building in back of their home and off-street parking is available.  The hosts were very friendly, helpful, and shared lots of information about the area, their wonderful little farm, all the animals, and there were fresh eggs available for breakfast. The AirBNB descriptions and photos are accurate and we enjoyed our stay on the country farm.

    Paul2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location and ease of staying here. It was clean and ready for us. We appreciated the flexibility of times. There was more to eat provided than we had time for, but appreciated it anyway. Simply, the photos and description are exactly what you can expect!

    Alexander2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great farm stay. Fiona and Jason are gracious host who make you feel welcome. The amenities were appreciated. We were given fresh eggs to fry for breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer than one night.

  • Great stay, would highly reccomend

    Brad2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this place not expecting much based on the geographic location. What a lovely surprise. A private studio separate and away from the main house with lovely gardens and farm views (but no farm smell). The space is very nicely appointed, the bed super comfortable and very clean and new bathroom facilities en-suite. There was even a washer just for the studio. After getting there, we wanted to stay a few more nights but it was already booked. Rachael and her husband were great hosts and available if needed but gave us privacy. Highly recommend if you are in the area. The town could use a few more restauarant options but more are available a short drive in either direction.

    Steven2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay- near the house but feels private with lovely view over the garden. Everything was clean, tasteful and snacks were a thoughtful touch. Fantastic heater kept us warm on a few very cold ‘summer’ nights. Good cafes only minutes way. We would stay here again.

    Sue2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Rachael’s place is like a snuggly, cosy nest, comfortable, warm and nicely furnished. Everything seemed new and we appreciated the nice touch of wee snacks. Looking out on the garden is lovely and the very good cafes in Milton are just a quick drive away. Great stay!

    Sue2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended. Suited us perfect , cosy bed , very clean , great hospitality, snacks, bottled water etc etc ... Thanks for the stay.

  • What a great little gem of a place, close to Dunedin and the Catlins. Beautifully presented accomodation with plenty of nice little touches to make you feel at home. Thanks again Rachael!

    Abby2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying here. The unit is lovely and clean with a beautiful garden setting outside. The air conditioning was great on a hot night and I would love to come again. Thanks for being such a great host Rachael.

    We have two well appointed, self contained units on the water's edge in The Catlins. The property borders the Historic Nuggets Lighthouse and Wildlife Reserve. The units have spectacular views of the ocean and private beaches.
  • Right at the beach. Very comfortable place to stay. Well equipped kitchen. Nice balcony to sit on and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

    James And Maree2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with wonderful views. I wish we would’ve stayed a week instead of 3 days. 13/10 would definitely recommend.

    Jordan2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We contracted two floors. The space downstairs is large. There are gardens. The views upstairs are superb. The location is very good. The host is very friendly and fun. We are also diving enthusiasts. There are many interesting creatures on the beach downstairs. It is not far from the lighthouse. It only takes ten minutes to drive. There are still many sheeps across the house. It is dark enough at night and is a good place for stargazing. If I have the money and time, I am willing to stay here for a month! !! !!

    Connie2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage with unparalleled sea views outside the window, close to the lighthouse at Cape Nugate. As soon as we arrived, the grandmother came out to meet us and kindly introduced us to their house. This time I live downstairs, I hope to have a chance to come again next time and experience the room upstairs. It's really great!

    夏滨2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
