Description

  • Walk down a native bush trail to the waters edge and throw in a line for the freshest sea run trout
  • Stroll along the nearby untouched beaches amongst the seal colonies and native seabirds.
  • Drive a short distance to Owaka township to sample the best local produce and unique cafe atmosphere

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.

Special conditions: Please no pets allowed and smoking only outside to ensure comfort of future guests. Possible discount for long term stays (5 Days+).

    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!

    we were stunned with the view and silence ( we live in christchurch) we had up on top the hill in the middle of beautiful nowhere. perfect stay for a getaway from busy life :) This place has no internet but that suited us just fine as we enjoyed not being reachable :) its not a 5 star hotel but its very comfortable, clean and tidy. it has everything you need and even supplies the basics like coffee, tea , sugar ... thanks for letting us stay .. we defintely would like to come back :)
