Enjoy your stay knowing that you are being careful with the environment. To be as environmentally sustainable as possible, we have provided the Catlins accommodation cottages with solar assisted water heating, double glazing and extra insulation.
In keeping with our respect and love of nature, our cottages are named for native birds, Riroriro (Grey warbler); Korimako (Bellbird); Kahu (Hawk); Karearea (Falcon)
The Catlins area in southern New Zealand is a natural retreat where wilderness and farmland coexist, where beech and podocarp rainforest with abundant native birdlife still extends from hill tops to the coast. The headlands and beaches of the varied coast are home to sub-antarctic wildlife such as yellow-eyed penguins, petrels and sealions. The Catlins is a place for those who love nature to stay a while and enjoy the freedom of the many outdoor opportunities for exploration. For more detail see the travel map (item number 5 below).
