We stayed here for three nights to see the sights of the catlins.

We had booked a double with shared bathroom, but on arrival we were upgraded to the double ensuite.

The room was amazing! The bed was huge and the bathroom was a decent size. There is a decent kitchen area with all bits that you need.

We didn't spend much time in the place as we were out exploring the catlins all day both days, but this place is a great base and great value for money!!

Stayed: January 2016

Thanks for taking the time to review. We are pleased you enjoyed your three nights with us, and found us such a great central base to explore both the northern and southern parts of the beautiful Catlins.

We booked the bedroom with bathroom on suite in the smaller cottage and were fortunate enough to have the whole house to ourselves. The views were spectacular. Everything was spotlessly clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. A great stop over in the Catlins.

I stayed in the dorm room along with my girlfriend and i have to say i was incredibly impressed! We were the only 2 booked in to the little cottage and it was lovely. The facilities were brilliant, the scenery is amazing, and overall an awesome little spot. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for either dorm accommodation or a weekend getaway, Especially for couples, Extraordinary!
Thanks guys for experience, A true hidden gem!

Utterly memorable stay at Papatowai. Typical laid back Southern hospitality where old fashioned virtues of trust and friendship still exist. We had the nicest evening in a fantastically well equipped home with lots of firewood and a wonderfully comfortable bed. There was even a bath if we needed one! Fantastic value for money. I will recommend this accommodation to all I talk to and would love to return any day.Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful part of our beautiful Aotearoa

This was the most beautiful place to stay in the Catlins. The sun came up through my bedroom window in the morning - AWESOME! Beautiful old house restored to former glory and just divine. I was able to have a lovely long bath after a busy day sightseeing in the Catlins and catching a great horseride at Te Taunga Adventures. Well worth it. Angela who looks after the house could not have been more accommodating. A great stay, many, many thanks. Sally
