Bach or holiday home | The Catlins | #32883
The Catlins is a region discovered only by the discerning traveler. Off the beaten track, and home to some of the world's rarest flora and fauna, its spectacular sea-fringed forest is home to myriad native birds. Sea lions, Hector's dolphins, seals and several species of penguins including the endangered hoiho (yellow-eyed penguin) are frequent visitors to this coast.
Easy-access bush trails take the casual walker into hidden lakes, stunning waterfalls, and pristine native rain forest while the more adventurous seek out the area's well-stocked trout rivers. The famous Papatowai surf break draws visitors from afar while the opportunity to spend time in water close to the playful Hector's dolphins is an unbelievable experience.
If travelling with children, the estuary at Papatowai offers calm waters and sheltered, sunny nooks for playing, picnicking and boating. In inclement weather, explore the fascinating local museums at Owaka or Waikawa, or head for the cafe's a short drive north and south of the village.
At Papatowai, you are in one of the few areas of the Catlins where forest meets sea and you will be astounded to find that you often have the long, deserted beaches to yourself. Whether you stay in your vehicle or venture out, the Catlins offers amazing views of ocean and forest in a region that, even today, few discover.

Enjoyed our stay in this comfortable retro cottage in the beautiful Catlins. Perfect for some peace and quiet. In walking distance of the beach and estuary and the quirky lost gypsy bus and all the hands on exhibits.
This cute property was clean, neat and private. We loved the sun seat. Unfortunately we could not get up the driveway as the car kept slipping, but it was not difficult to unload from the street. Very close to the beach but definitely need to be prepared for sand flies.
