My wife and I tried to book into Nugget Lodge who recommended that we try Molyneux House because we wanted direct views to the ocean which Nugget Lodge were unable to provide, and following a very reassuring phone call with the owners of Molyneux House we booked two nights. Everything about the place was perfect for our needs. Our room...

A self-contained b&b at the border of Kaka Point, right on one of the most exciting beaches of the Catlins, with sea lions, for seals and penguins 'within reach'. Aall comfort is present, including a full breakfast set-up. Joan and John are very helpful yet discreet.

Booked into this place on the basis of the wonderful TA reviews and it exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful huge room - more a suite, beautifully decorated, with separate areas for the very comfortable bed, a large dining table and a lounge suite. There was a small kitchenette and a good size bathroom. We even had our own...

The owner has presented a spotless home away from home with luxurious touches such as a lounge area with cd and DVD player, comfortable sofas, large dining table beautifully set and a full kitchen built to a high standard . The breakfast was fantastic. The view of the sea another plus. Recommended.

The room is very well designed, you can feel the great taste of the hosts. Living room is large, kitchen has all the equipment you would need. You will also get a lovely garden and ocean view from the room.

There's nothing to say that isn't superior. Joan was a gracious and pleasant host and the room is simply exceptional. The location is unique and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and regretted it was for only one night.

You are met with a cheerful welcome, and invited into their house as special friends. The first thing that hits you is the magnificent view from the huge windows is the deep blue sea before you, and though there is a road in front you cannot see or hear it. The suite is private, and though the owners are close...

We stayed at Molyneux House in November 2013. As soon as we walked in, we were impressed by the large and luxurious room, which had every amenity, even binoculars for studying the view, which is magnificent. Breakfast was also first class, we served ourselves at a well provided and beautifully laid table. Joan our hostess was really helpful, she dried...

How I wish we could have stayed at this lovely B&B longer. It was so peaceful, quiet and had everything you could think of for amenities. Great information in the suite for walks, drives and other activities available in the Catlins. And, words cannot describe their location...awesome! My husband and I relaxed with a bottle of wine just staring out...

Excellent accommodation, super-friendly and helpful hosts. Great spot to visit and stay. Highly recommended, and the lighthouse is fantastic. Kaka Point is well worth stopping at in your tour of the Catlins (whichever direction you are going)
