Property Description

Seaside accommodation at Surat Bay-Newhaven, North Catlins. Stay a while and enjoy all of the secrets of the Catlins, its splendid wild coastline, deserted beaches, native sea lions live at our doorstep; fur seals, penguins and lots of native birdlife.

Explore its unusual geological formations including Cathedral Caves, Jacks Blowhole and the Petrified Forest at Curio Bay. We offer New Zealand biggest selection of wildlife: Yellow-eyed penguins, Hector Dolphins, New Zealand Fur Seals and Sealions.

Sometimes during the summer you may see Sea Elephants and Leopard Seals. Every corner has something for you to enjoy.

To see it all needs good planning as many sights require a low tide and wildlife have their own timetable. Take the time to rest in our peaceful surroundings.

We aim to make your stay an experience you will not forget as we have done to hundreds before you. Most of our guests find us by a recommendation from friends and fellow travelers.

All guests must have contact details and must-have vaccine pass provided prior to their arrival.

The lodge is in a superb location and the host was friendly and helpful giving us the necessary information to enjoy the area and to find an emergency dentist at short notice. The kitchen was nicely equipped and the picnic tables outside provided an alfresco dining experience while viewin the ocean and the sealions. We enjoyed excellent fresh eggs from resident chickens. Planning a return trip!
