The property has stunning views, being set on top of the cliff. It is not posh inside; if it were, this would be well out of my budget with views like this. As it was, everything you need for a stay is provided. The kitchen is very well equipped. All furnishings are comfortable and the place was spotlessly clean. The...

We were here back to December 2013 and the weather was playing rogue. It was extremely windy and rainy. We actually saw yellow eye penguins at the observation point close to the lighthouse. This time we are back the weather is so lovely and we see the sunset, the sunrise, and starry night, beautiful night view. The room is cozy...

Nugget Lodge is perched on a rocky outcrop at Kaka Point. Below the balcony is a lovely surfing beach and from the Lighthouse Unit is the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean as far as the eye could see. The Lighthouse unit is spacious, bright and airy, and spotlessly clean. There is a fully equipped kitchenette including microwave. The Living/Sitting...

With our teenage son we stayed for 4 nights and all loved the venue.explored the top half of catlins on day one, relaxed for the second day then explored the other half all the way to invercargill! So nice to come back to our place in Paradise. Pauline and Willy were so hospitable. Thanks.

Truly lovely little place. Wonderful way to get in touch with nature. The unit we stayed in (Lighthouse) was perfect for transitioning from driving to experiencing the calm and stillness amist the rugged and wild beauty this very special place in Aotearoa has to offer. We would absolutley stay at Nugget Lodge again.

We stayed in the Lighthouse room on the top floor and couldn't believe the setting. The surf rolls in beneath you, the sun rises over the sea as you lie in a very comfortable bed facing what is to me the perfect view. To the North the beach stretches up the Catlins coast and we spotted a sea lion lolling...

A wonderful top-floor B&B apartment (Lighthouse Unit) perched at the edge of rocks with spectacular views across the wild Catlins coast and beaches. About 5 km from the nearest shop and pub restaurant at Kaka Point: 3 km is partially sealed road winding along the coast. The unit is well-designed: warm and compact with bed (sloping ceiling), sofa, table &...

We were on a family holiday when we stayed in the SeaLion Unit at Nugget Lodge, and it didn't disappoint. There were a couple of downsides, in that our upstairs neighbours in the Lighthouse Unit got up at 5:15am and clomped around for 2 hours, when we had intended to wake, and that the hot water cylinder for their unit...

'Lighthouse Unit' definitely preferable. However we have stayed in the Ground Floor Unit 'Sealion' which is still fantastic. Outstanding Ocean and Coast views. We found copious numbers of Mussels (only took legal 25 p/p ) on the rocks nearby. Either lie in Bed or sit on the Lounge Suite and absorb the sensational views. If you wish you can be...
