We stayed in the Sea Lion appartment and it was very comfortable & cozy with a spacious living area (living room, dining room, kitchen, TV & even DVDs), a big bedroom and a bathroom. Free Wi fi too. The appartment has a small yard with an outdoor table and can have direct access to the beach. The other appartment on...

Sensational view, beautiful self contained accommodation, way more than a simple b&b. Well equipped, spacious & facilities to cook for yourself if you want. While we had originally planned to eat out we couldn't tear ourselves away so made do with pasta & luckily a bottle of great NZ pinot. Yes, the bottom unit does not have the unrivalled view...

We rented the lighthouse unit for 3 nights. It was magical. The views were wonderful, and we didn't want to move. We had our own private beach, with our own sea lion! Rock pooling, collecting shells, just chilling out. The Catlins is the perfect place to see wildlife - dolphins, penguins, seals etc. We loved it & can't wait to...

Highly recommended. Friendly and helpful hosts, a lovely people-free area and stunning views. Any closer to the sea and you'd need windscreen wipers for storms. We had a wonderful stay and would happily return.

Lovely views from the garden of Sealion Unit to an empty beach (if you're lucky it may not be entirely empty - sealions visit here to lie on the beach). Peaceful, simple but clean unit with everything you need including binoculars and even games for rainy days as well as heaps of local info. One of the most comofrtable matresses...

The Nugget Lodge is absolutely breathtaking! Situated by itself on a small point with beautiful empty beaches stretching in both directions, we felt as if we were the only people for miles. We were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves below and enjoyed our breakfast on a small private lawn. The accommodations are simple, but clean, cozy,...

Spent two nights at Nugget Lodge over xmas - a warm welcome from Pauline on xmas eve and then out to watch the hoiho coming in at Roaring Bay and walk to the lighthouse and watch the seals around Nugget Point. Then a day relaxing, swimming in the sea and walking on the beach on xmas day. It's such a...

As we were doing the south scenic route from Te Anau to nugget point staying at nugget point was the best thing to do instead of driving further on. The Nugget Point Lodge is at the perfect location because it is on your way to the Nugget Point lighthouse (if you can't find it on your gps). The Nugget Point...

Highly recommend the Lighthouse Unit. The view from this upstairs studio unit is one of the most beautiful you can imagine. A sweeping view across the bay, waves crashing right in front of the unit and if you are lucky, a sea lion or two on the beach. The unit has everything you could need, it's spotlessly clean and we...

Absolute piece of paradise, for those that want an escape along a rugged coastline, so may excellent day trips and back to a wonderful view and warm room. So awesome on some of the savage weather evenings crashing seas, and Sea Lions lumbering up the beach Excellent host
