Hidden Gem

Stayed 4 nights here and loved it. Very good facilities and the staff were very pleasant. Diesel the boss man cat is a great charmer. Located on an inlet with lovley sunrises and good views from a number of sites. Easy access to a number of other locations on the Catlins and a short drive to town at Owaka.

Nice and quiet place to be!

A beautiful place, very nice people ! All i need was there for kitchen and other, all perfect.
I was very lucky to meet at 21.30pm two seals just in front, they go back to the sea 1 hours later ! For people who think about taking nice pictures…, just get there, it’s really a nice and quiet place to be !
