  • A amazing property and location

    A amazing property and location. House is very neat and clean, and feels homely. Wonderful view across the estuary, the deck is the perfect place to have a coffee and watch the sunrise. Great place to explore the Catlins from.

    The kids loved having the pool table in the garage, it was great to limit their screen time and have some family fun. Great view and easy access to the museum, shops and cafes in Owaka. It is a small town, so things close up early, but if you plan accordingly, you'll be fine. Having the linens provided was a nice plus.

  • This crib is aptly named Catlins Estuary View

    This crib is aptly named Catlins Estuary View. The views from the lounge, kitchen and decks are exceptional. I loved the view towards farmland as much as of the Estuary. The crib was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable with lovely linen. Hilary has recently renovated the place and has done a very tasteful job. We would definitely like to stay here again. Owaka is not very far from the farm. The is a great base for a Catlins holiday.
