Spotlessly clean, Comfy King sized bed, well equipped kitchen, quiet location with awesome views over the ocean and a wonderful hostess - what more can you ask for? The area has so much to do, hikes, beaches, yellow-eyed penguins (we saw 2!!) that a stay of a few nights would be great. My only regret is that we were not able to stay more than one night. Highly recommend booking through Mike & Jennys website or by giving them a call.

My family and I stayed here at Christmas 2013 and I can not rave about this place enough, the hosts were first class and we would without doubt stay here again if we were to return to the Catlins.

If your looking for a place near the sea look no further

We had one night in the smaller of Jenny's two rooms. Very nicely decorated, and very comfortable, but compact. When we return, we are going to book the larger room, with the better views. Jenny was a very friendly and helpful hostess, and we enjoyed quite a chat about things we had in common. Look forward to our next trip.

Room tip: Bigger front room has better views.

Jenny was so warm and welcoming to her very nice place. We had a wonderful view of the beach from the qarden and had a very clean and comfortable space which was well appointed . Jenny did a very nice dinner for us one night, all with local ingredients. This is a great spot that I would strongly recommend

Room tip: Take the back/lower space.

We stayed 2 nights at Mike & Jenny's in their beautiful ground floor unit. It was spacious and tastefully furnished. We loved the very comfortable bed from which we could see the ocean. The unit was well equipped. It had a large TV with many channels. Just outside our door was a nice garden overlooking the water. I agree with most of the previous reviews about Mike & Jenny's hospitality. Mike caught some whitebait one morning and Jenny made some fritters and brought us a plate of them to eat. She also gave us 2 air dried stakes to take with us. What a lovely couple.

Room tip: Ask for downstairs unit and book well in advance, as they have only 2 units.
