A great spot for a family holiday at an affordable price.

Swimming, kayaking, bush and beach walks, fishing, diving, whitebaiting, sightseeing is all within easy walking or driving distance.(or reading, watching tele, enjoying a tipple, and sleeping if that's more your idea of a holiday...)

The Catlins is a bit of a "well-kept secret" and Kaka Point is an excellent gateway to this district. On a days outing you can see stunning scenery, all sorts of marine mammals and birds, or enjoy any number of beach or bush walks. Alternatively, bring your flounder net, or snorkelling gear and grab yourselves a feed. The wee kids love collecting cockles, which you can cook up the following day.

If the weather is inclement, light the fire, put on some old records, and have a relaxing time enjoying the solitude.

If you need to bring a pet, please enquire personally. Please note that the section is not fully fenced and that pets and or children have a very large area of bush behind the house in which to get lost!

There is tea coffee etc in the bach, along with tinned food, dried soups etc, which can be restocked when you go. Please take perishable food away when you leave.

Smoking allowed outside only.

  • I did see water dripping from the water pump under the house

    I did see water dripping from the water pump under the house. The water was yuk. Maybe a water filter or a note to take your own. Other than that the house was good and the view was great, outside seating areas awesome and a tennis court right next door.
