Description

Catlin's Lake Sanctuary is a cosy retreat from the modern world where you can reconnect with nature and truly relax. A classic kiwi bach, an icon of the 1970's, with wood burning fire and simple home comforts. Wood and Kindling provided with fire set and ready to go. Have your camera handy to catch the local Bellbirds and Tui's feeding on nearby native trees and plants right outside your window. Revel in the beautiful sunrises, sunsets and clear starlit night skies from the front lawn or venture out to explore the blowhole at Jacks Bay at high tide, the many local waterfalls, and the famous Nuggets Lighthouse. The Information centre in nearby Owaka township is an excellent resource centre with in depth local area knowledge to guide you in selecting the best experiences available to enrich your stay. For the truly enthusiastic fisherman the estuary abounds with Flounder and Sole which can be speared on clear still nights.

    Definitely your quirky quintessential kiwi bach! The instructions from the owners were very comprehensive and much appreciated. We loved having the fireplace, and the flexibility of lots beds. There's a good amount of outdoors lawn too, but then again being perfectly in the middle of the Catlins we went exploring! 25 min drive to Purakanui surf beach, the neighbours even lent us their old boogie boards!

    The view over the estuary is beautiful and everything was provided to make our stay comfortable. The surrounding gardens and trees added to the relaxing feel and the native birdlife was a bonus.

    We loved our stay here, and you will too. From the Tui's outside the window to the awesome views of the bay. A great base to see this stunning area. Would come back in a heart beat!
