  • The property is very accommodating

    The property is very accommodating. The location is amazing! We saw a sea lion up close as he swam ashore in front of the house, hector dolphin, and walked to see the yellow eyes penguins at dusk both nights. Exceptional location.

    The Catlins Beach House is ideally sited particularly for a family with three children. It has all the necessary facilities and has been thoughtfully furnished for a family holiday. Being able to surf with Hectors Dolphins is magical.

  • Can’t possibly say enough about this wonderful bach

    Can’t possibly say enough about this wonderful bach. First of all, the bach itself was clean, comfortable, and perfectly located on Porpoise Bay. Every day we surfed in the waves, and swam with the dolphins. We could easily walk to Curio Bay, seeing the petrified forest remains and several penguins - enjoying the many perks of the friendly Curio Bay Campsite with its museum, restaurant, and snack shop. Our family of 6 felt this bach was as near perfection as one could hope for!
