Really loved this property, had more of a BNB than expected but did not mind one bit. The location is amazing and a great place to use as a base to explore the Catlins. We would have loved to stay extra nights and will be back again. The bathroom being carpeted was a bit weird.

Cosy Cottage By the Sea
We loved our stay here. It was cosy and felt like we were in a beachside NZ Bach. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The hosts were really lovely and we were thrilled to see sealions on the beach. Superb remote and beautiful location.
