  • A lovely property in a great setting for exploring the Catlins

    A lovely property in a great setting for exploring the Catlins. It had everything we could have wished for: it was deceptively spacious (and cosy in the 'summer' weather). The views over the estuary were ever-changing and beautiful - even in the rain. We would love to return because two nights was not enough to explore everything this wonderful area has to offer.

    Fantastic views! Bach was very clean and tidy. Great outdoor space too and the games room was a real bonus. Would love to visit again.
