If you want perfect peace and quiet this is the place. Nothing to disturb you apart from the bird song. The cabins are comfortable and well equipped. Fabulous views from the deck. Although eco cabins, no tv, there is very good internet and a good range of music cds if you wish to connect with the world. However it is nice just to leave it behind for a while and enjoy the break

Robbie's house is low key and a well kept place to rest for a couple of nights while touring the Catlins coast. He's a great host and a fine conversationalist. Very much enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at Robbie's. comfortable large rooms and good continental breakfast. Think the highlight was Robbie himself, who is great for information about Owaka and surrounding district. Couldn't have been more helpful. On the last morning he had even hosed off all the dust from our hire care before we left.
