Surfinn Eco Cottage is a modern self contained Papatowai cottage that's waiting for you to arrive and take in the best that the Catlins coast has to offer. A two story two bedroom dwelling, Surfinn Eco Cottage is located in the quaint coastal village of Papatowai, right in the heart of the beautiful and historically important Catlins Coast.

This Papatowai cottage is equipped with a new kitchen that includes a stovetop, oven, and a microwave. Having made your romantic meal, head to the open plan living area - it's a great place to dine, relax, and socialise as it comes with some spectacular views out towards the estuary and the forests of Tahakopa! As Surfinn Eco Cottage faces north, you'll be able to enjoy the luxury of all day sunlight! The speaker system has an iPod docking station - perfect for listening to your favourite tunes. The heat pump means that you'll always be at the right temperature; nice and cosy in the Winter, and cool and relaxed in the Summer. The lookout on the top floor is where you'll find the king sized bed. This bedroom comes complete with a small wardrobe, and has even more wonderful views of Tahakopa bay. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The bathroom combines with a laundry, ensuring that you'll always be nice and refreshed throughout your stay. The private driveway means that there's room enough for a boat of up to 7 metres. The private grassy area means that there's room for sunbathing on those sunny days!

    We stayed during winter, so being warm is all important, which this place was. The town of Papatowai was very quiet and the beach that the bach rests above was empty also. It's just you and nature out here, which is exactly what we were after. The bed was comfy and the bedroom has a lovely view out to the beach and surrounding hills, a perfect way to admire the sunrise.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback Heath! Sounds like you had a restful and tranquil holiday at the beach. Nothing like a weekend away at the beach surrounded by nature. We hope you can stay with us again sometime in the near future - Scott

    When it rained water leaked into the main living room through a light fitting and filled half a pot. The tea towels were of the type that did not actually DRY dishes, and there was no dish rack to drip-dry the dishes. The bed in bedroom 2 downstairs (where our adult daughter slept) was a fold out bed of an old style that was extremely uncomfortable. All else just lovely thanks.
