From searching other reviews, to then booking with Laura, I knew straight away this would be homely & a top place to stay. On arrival a personalised message greeted us. The room was above expectation, modern, warm, awesome view of the sea, & located right above the pub for tea! Not much more one could want. All within very reasonable...

Just had a one night stop, staying in the studio room. This was clean and comfortable with a microwave etc. We were given good advice on going to see the penguins that evening which we did. I would want to stay in one of the bigger units if it was for more than one night but the studio served its...

We stayed at Cardno's for one night during our trip through The Catlins. Robyn welcomed us on arrival and was very informative on the local area. We had the unit without the sea view but this was very good for the price. Nugget Point is a must do and the nearby hide to spot penguins. Also lots of lovely waterfalls.

Binoculars to see the ocean view; welcome chocolates; extra comfortable beds; relaxed hospitality. On day One we had to stay in - it poured with rain & anyway, my travelling companion was ill - couldn't have and a better place to sit it out. What with the view, the comfortable seating, and all.

We stayed one night at Cradnos, the service and accommodation was wonderful. Robyn was extremely helpful. She advised us as to where we could see penguins, which we had been looking for all day. We went to the DOC hide and sure enough we saw them. We had wifi, a very comfortable bed with quality linens, the shower was very...

We were fortunate enough to be in Unit 2 facing the ocean and the views are mind boggling thought out so well there is binoculars for your usage. The owners were very polite offering bits and pieces when we cooked fresh salmon direct from Stewart Island. As we had holidayed at Stewart Island and had plenty spare salmon we gave...

A lovely place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. About 2 mins walk from the beach. Warm and cosy. I had the room without the view, but it was lovely and quiet, and the view was a 2 second walk out the door! Very nice.

My partner and I stayed at Cardno's accommodation for one night in July. The studio was well equipped, clean and modern. Owner was very helpful and friendly. Great views over looking Kaka Point, worth staying in the unit with sea view option. Binoculars were a nice little touch to keep an eye out for any sea life! Would stay again...
