    We stayed in June with 4 adults, a 2 year old and 5month old, the house was suitable, safe and warm. There is a lovely view and plenty of space outside. There is a playground 5 minutes away and several near by beaches. Purakainui Falls is an excellent walk for little legs with lots to see along the way. Highly recommend!

    Great location, close to any activities on the Catlins and with a great view and easy access. Extremely well equipped, with a comprehensive kitchen, although a teapot would be a great addition. Lots of armchairs, comfy beds, and good heating. Very spatious. Highly tecommended.
