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.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Please contact owner for any special requests prior to arrival. Cellphone coverage not great! In some circumstances guests may need to make beds. (Clean sheets will be available) Depends if I get a chance to get down there between guests.

    It had a really great holiday feel and we had everything we needed, even a fire for the southern summer :-) Fantastic place and very relaxing.

    Nice property with sea views, only a couple of minutes walk to the beach front. Roomy house with good amenities. Comfortable beds, and good stereo, tv and kitchen.
