Dingle Beach House Kaka Point

 Great house to stay in. Very clean and tidy. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay close to everything 

Sea Greene Beach Cottage

 Really well loved property, restored with passion which felt an honour to stay in. It was cold on arrival, but there were excellent instructions and all materials for wood burner and we were soon toasty warm and cosy. Remained that way through our stay. Great location for Nugget Point- seals and penguins and a good base to explore The Catlins. Wished we could have stayed longer. 

Kaka Point Beach House

 Nice & quite within walking distance to the sea 

Sea Greene Beach Cottage
