Stayed 4 nights in February 2019

Great accommodation - quiet, fantastic location and well run”

Stayed 4 nights in a standard cabin and was very impressed by the holiday park. It is only a small place, but friendly, well-run and also with a fantastic location. The beach literally starts from the corner of this place, which makes walks along the long beach very easy. Location is lovely too, you drive a few km alongside an estuary to get here, yet Owaka (small supermarket, petrol station and cafes) is only 6km drive away. Friendly and helpful owners too. Despite being only a standard cabin, it came with a fridge, TV and also a DVD player. In the office they have a great selection of DVDs too. Cabins were warm, clean and big enough and because the park is only small, then were also quiet. The main kitchen/lounge block is also good, books and games there as well as a TV. It was cleaned daily and was always very clean. For the price paid, it was a bargain, and more pleasant than some other nearby places that we have stayed in. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended

Catlins Gem”

The real deal at this Holiday Park was the owner, helpful,, generous, the accomodation, nothing was missing, all my needs were catered for.

I really enjoyed this experience, close to the ocean, clean and tidy, a great place for children for their safety and enjoyment. My stay was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend this Park, its facilities, its proximity to nature. It was easy to meet other people from all over the world and Kiwis.

AGENCY CHARGES FOR A BOOKING”

The cabin we had for one night was exceelent at the quoted price of $NZ112.00 BUT without any notice a charge of $NZ172.00 was made to our bank account. This was a RIP OFF by an overseas agency who should be banned from operating in NZ. Noel.

Bad experience”

There is no any phone signal on the holiday Park.The reception gave me 200mb WiFi access code,BUT it didn’t work at all. You can only have 5mins showers paying $2 extra,it makes you feel awful when you don’t have coins.

Extra-mile, amazing staff”

We arrived on a wet day, but was warmly welcomed by Deborah. What blew us away was the extra-mile she took in coming to our cabin before we were about to check-out to ask us to stay put as the road conditions were very bad due to adverse weather. She kept checking weather and road closure updates and gave us the all-clear-but-be-careful signal around noon. Exceptional experience which we are so grateful for. All in, a wonderful experience, and only wished the weather was better so we could stroll along the beach. Thank you, Deborah!

We arrived at the destination late, the very friendly staff still show us around with her thin jacket during winter night. After knowing we come to try our luck on aurora, she even go extra mile to search and print out some information online. We are so touch and feel so heart warming.

Excellent Nature Trip in Catlin, Southland of NZ”

By the beach, You can see Sea Lion and very helpful staffs

We saw sea lions near the beach, just 200 meter walking distance to the bushes track in the morning, you will have chance to see the sea lion. Very close distance to nature scenery such as Bay, Waterfall and more importantly to visit Nuggets Point Light house... about 25 min drive.
