Located well away from a population other than residents from one of the other three cottages, which themselves are well secluded, Catlins Mohua Park offers guests a place to simply become absorbed into the scenery and tranquillity. Following an exceptionally friendly welcome from the owner (Lyndon) who also provided considerable information about the Catlins sights, we were directed to our cottage which was surrounded by bush on three sides and an exceptional rural scene out front. This later part could be even more enjoyed by the fact that the entire front was also a large, wonderful glass sliding door opening onto a small verandah. The cottage was also very well appointed, with many items likely to be found in five-star motel rooms. This included a large comfortable bed, coffee maker, comfortable furnishings, a table where one tried to work when not distracted by the scenery and wildlife, and Bar-B-Que (outside). There is no television however, so there is ample opportunity to either do one of the many bushwalks on the property enjoying the abundant birdlife, reading a book, or simply relaxing. There is also a strong commitment of eco-friendliness, which simply endears you even more to its entirety. While located at some distance from the nearest town, this never seems to be an issue which would cause you to regret your decision to stay.…
Really enjoyed our one night stay here. The cottage was well equipped and the BBQ dinner and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The cottages are well spaced so you have complete privacy. Beautiful farmland and very heplful hosts. Lots of walks too!
Stayed 2 nights. What a find......wow just wow. Absolutely stunning place, so clean and comfortable. The minute you walk in the door you know you're in for a wonderful stay. The decor, furniture and bed linen is all top notch. I'd go back without hesitation and highly recommend anyone travelling through the area to stay a couple of nights there. It's bliss. 😍😍🏅
We wondered where we were going but trusted our GPS. What a treat we got when we arrived. Our cottage was more than we expected with it's well appointed facilities. Comfortable, relaxing, quiet with a beautiful view. We were warmly greeted and made to feel very welcome. Loved it.
We stayed in the Kararea cottage for a night on our Catlins trip and it was fantastic. Modern and warm with a beautiful view across farmland, whilst tucked into native bush making it very quiet and private. This particular cottage has a king bed and two singles, making it suitable for families. The extra touches like nice toiletries and a coffee machine give it the quality edge, and the board games to keep the kids entertained were appreciated. We also did a lovely walk on the property. Highly recommended.
