Spent 2 nights in one of the cottages. Very quiet there, came there for the rainforest, which was a bit disappointing. Just a hilltop with the remnants of a rainforest. There were several short tracks to do, but what bothered me very much were the seashells, plastic and metal strips which were nailed every few meters to the trees! Totally...

Thank you for your review, and we are glad you enjoyed the quiet and comfort of the cottages. We still have much to do as new owners of Mohua Park, time will bring many small improvements, the use of suitable tags to further inform and educate guests on the variety of tree or plant they are seeing in our 30...

A beautiful haven from which to explore the Catlins. Our cottage had everything we could need, very comfortable and the view is stunning. The setting makes it feel very private but hosts are nearby if needed. There are great walks on the property if you don't feel like venturing out but the Catlins' beautiful coastline, rainforest walks and waterfalls are...

We stayed in 'Korimako' one of the four eco cottages on the edge of Mohua Park, looking out across the Catlins River Valley, lovely views. The cottages are quite close together but at the same time private, separated from one another with trees and native bush to the rear and sides. The owners Gill and Lyndon were friendly, helpful and...

Lovely separate units, located in the middle of the Catlins not too far from Owaka. Room had excellent wifi and good facilities, will benefit from blockout curtains as the sun rises so early in the summer. Walks on site through the bush are well worth doing.

We stayed at the spectacular B&B for one night whilst travelling around the South Island and through the Caitlins. We would have stayed longer if we had known how serene and relaxing the property was. We took a tour with Lyndon (the host runs really entertaining tours,and he has good local knowledge of the area) to Nugget Point to view...

Excellent eco-lodge in indigenous wooded grounds with many birds. Fabulous views from self catering appartments. Good guiding - yellow eyed penguins, sealions and fur seals, temperate rain forest, hill farms, lakes and seashore. Lovely food.

My wife and I had a lovely stay at Mohua Park for our belated honeymoon. The area was quite secluded and very peaceful, exactly what we wanted. The cottage was immaculate and fit our every need. The views around the property and from the cottage itself were breathtaking. It was such a great experience to watch the sunrise each morning...

Wonderful stay, only there for 1 night, but wish it was more. Owners were lovely and willing to assist with anything needed. Was nice to feel completely in nature, with no one around. Will recommend to anyone travelling around south island.

What a perfect place to stay. Gill and Lyndon (the owners) are really friendly and knowledgeable. Helpful whenever we needed it.
