Great location and awesome host - very easy going. Spent a couple nights here, the place itself is perfect, has everything you need plus nice little extra touches. If you are visiting the Catlins make sure to spend a night here. Highly recommended to others!

We arrived early on a wet, cold day and were warmly greeted and allowed to get into our unit early despite it not quite being ready (just the floors to be mopped). That didn't worry us, we were grateful to have a cosy yet roomy place to get out of the weather and enjoy a cup of coffee and our...

Highly recommend Cardno's accomodation. We stayed in the apartment and were most impressed with the attention to detail. Would like to have stayed longer. The owners are charming and most helpful. Very pleasant sitting on the veranda with a glass of wine enjoying the view of the ocean.

I can't speak highly enough of our whole experience staying at Cardno's Accomodation. The room was beautifully decorated, roomy and well-equipped and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. We were lucky enough to have sunny and warm (relatively) weather on our three day stay so were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the views of the ocean each afternoon....

Comfortable, clean, warm and stylish with lovely views over the coastline. Great and friendly host who went above and beyond to accommodate our baby's needs. The unit has everything you need and it is very comfortable. The only issue is that we wished that he had booked longer and we will definitively come back to this very lovely unit. Thank...

We had not booked here originally, but they had a flag flying saying they had a studio, and we were warmly welcomed. So delighted with the comfortable well equipped room beautifully clean fresh and new and warm with stunning views out to nugget point. Would most definitely return.

There is a choice of two units, both very well presented. They are stylish and very modern with crisp white bed linen to boot! Oh! what a wonderful shower.
