Just a few kilometres from Slope Point, the southernmost point of the South Island, nestled in the Catlins lie the magical Curio and Porpoise Bays. A small detour from the Southern Scenic Route guides you to a slice of paradise. The area is rich with wildlife, scenic beauty and heritage. Points of interest include a Jurassic Petrified forest, bush walks, swimming, surfing, kayaking and endless Southern Ocean views. The Waikawa Museum highlights the whaling, logging and pioneering heritage of this fertile region. Hector’s Dolphin visit annually from October through to March (occasionally April). You will be able to watch them teach their young to surf the waves just in front of CLOUD9. Walk down the road to the Petrified Forest at the end of the day to watch the Yellow-eyed penguins return onto the rock shelf from a day of fishing to preen and make their way into the flax to feed their hidden hungry chicks.

Take the road less travelled, settle in with your family in one of the cosiest homes in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. CLOUD9 is modest, inviting, secure and has fantastic views of the pristine coastline – a photographer’s dream. The beds and linen are luxurious and wonderfully comfortable. Your drinking water comes from the sky, there’s none tastier. It's impossible to communicate all of this magic with the written word. Your memories will be priceless.

The Niagara Falls Café Ph. (03) 2468 577 is nearby. Visit their website.

Invercargill (the gateway to Stewart Island) and Bluff are one hour further West, down the track. Invercargill offers a little of everything anyone could ever want. Dunedin lies three hours to the North. It is a thriving City with the world class University of Otago and a rich cultural heritage. Queenstown is also about three hours away, a bustling resort destination loved by many. The Southern part of the South Island will become an everlasting memory but nothing will surpass your time at CLOUD9.

    Curio Bay is a gorgeous location for those who like nature and can self-entertain. Cloud 9 is brilliantly located to take advantage of the beauty of the bay and even the view from the couch is unsurpassed. It's a classic Kiwi bach - nothing too flash but full of character and everything works. The good wood burner kept us warm on a cold winter night and we had a wonderful stay. I am already planning my next trip back to Cloud 9.

    The location and view are incredible! The house itself needs a little love and updating, and there were a few too many spiders inside, but this is easily overlooked as the view is stunning. We didn't get to see any penguins, but we heard them all night long and saw dolphins in the morning. The bed was incredibly comfortable and warm. We feel we definitely got a true New Zealand bach experience and enjoyed our short stay in Curio Bay.
