“This home is all about the stunning views and its proximity to nearby places of interest. Take the time to visit the old school (Niagara Falls Cafe) which is a cafe with wonderful, homemade cakes and coffee. It is also a short drive to stunning ocean views of The Catlins We loved it.”
We have a cosy cabin (studio style) opposite our house with its own shower and toilet and basic cooking facilities (double hotplate, small fridge, microwave, electric jug and toaster). 5 minutes walk to river and beach. Simple breakfast supplies are provided for you to prepare your own morning meal; home made bread, local honey, butter, jam. Unfortunately we no longer have hens so cannot supply fresh eggs. There is a DVD player and good selection of movies to watch on a rainy day.
“Carols cabin at Papatowai in a delightful part of the Catlins is lovely. The amenities are good and it really is all you need and more. You will have a truly relaxing and restful time here and the fresh baked bread and local delicious honey, butter and jams for breakfast are great. The beautiful birdsong, hospitable Carol herself and Carol's lovely little dog Ginnie are perfect memories.”
We are a 3rd generation farmhouse overlooking Tahakopa valley. You are made to feel very welcome upon arrival with a refreshment. We very much enjoy having guests to stay and many leave as new friends. We are a quiet household except when we ramp up the fire in the morning. Continental breakfast is provided. We do have 2 rooms listed each with a queen size bed.
“We had a wonderful time at Eleonor and Don’s beautiful home. We can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, warm, clean and friendly place to stay. They are both very welcoming and helpful. I hope we can come back some day.”
