We stayed in unit 10. It was clean and comfortable with a spa bath which took a long time to fill. Good kitchen facilities overall and a good view of the sea. The proprietor gave us very useful tips for seeing the yellow eyed penguins and align out to the lighthouse. We were very happy with our stay.

Nothing wrong with this motel at all. Comfortable and clean, what more can you ask at this price folks? Room was a little cold at night, but that was a combination of the time of year we visited and we didn't leave the electric wall heater on!

We spent 2 nights here at the beginning of winter, and the weather was cold. The heater was really struggling to keep us warm. The unit we had. had great views over the bay, but seemed to be one of the older ones. The decor could have done with an update. The proprietor was friendly and helpful, and the service...

Very nice well equipped apartment with nice balcony with excellent sea views. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The motel is an easy 10min drive to Nugget point and is a good starting point for exploring the amazing Caitlins region

Kaka Point feels a bit like the end of the road. It is a sleepy little town with an beautiful beach. It is very close to Nugget Point, where we were able to see yellow-eyed penguins. The motel was great. It is above the main road. Our room, across the street from the reception office, shared a deck and had...

Stayed here for 2 nights to explore the Otago Peninsula. Lovely comfy room, good basic kitchen supplies, gorgeous sea view and the most wonderful sunrise Ive ever seen. Worth getting up early to photograph. Coral and Bruce were very friendly, telling us about all the local places to visit. Wifi was practically non existent and 4 hours of vouchers equated...

Another night another motel. Small but clean and tidy studio with amazing views across the bay to Nugget Point lighthouse. The check in was easy and the owner explained the towns only food outlet and its opening times. My only issue was the communal balcony in front of all four studios as I had the strange experience of a Chinese...

Clean, comfortable, spacious, great outlook over the bay and helpful management with things to see and do. Double glazing windows kept wind blasts out. Not top of the line, but for only one or even two nights, just fine.

We stayed for one night in a 'Studio Unit', which was clean, in good condition, although a little small. There were rules about what could be cooked, so that we didn't leave any smells. The wifi was very hit-and-miss, but it did eventually work. This suited us well, as it was ideally suited for our travels, and there isn't too...
