We spent three nights in the upstairs (Lighthouse) unit and couldn't have wished for more wonderful views. The studio was well equipped,the king size bed being set back in an alcove and with sitting and dining areas to the fore. We were warmly welcomed by Pauline who also provided us with a delicious breakfast tray each day with home laid...

After 2008 and 2011 we stayed again in this wonderful accommodation. We chose every time the Lighthouse Unit, so you have a fantastic view over the ocean and up to the Nugget Lighthouse. Even from your bed you can see the sea. The room is well furnished and nothing is missing. When ever we arrived we felt at home immediately....

Great location if you want to stay in the Southland and be able to explore the Nugget Point area. We stayed in the Lighthouse unit which is the upper one with the view of both the beach and the lighthouse. The unit is about a 5 minute drive to the actual lighthouse on the point and you can see it...

If the relaxing sounds of the sea; fantastic views of miles of coastline; a lovely beach and the near contact with wildlife appeal to you, then the "Lighthouse Unit" at Nugget Lodge is the place for a wonderful stay in The Catlins. Perched on an exclusive rocky outcrop at Kaka Point, the unit, along with its companion, the "Sea Lion...

What an amazing little out of the way spot this is. We stayed in the Lighthouse apartment on the upper deck which had fantastic views of the coast and could see the sea from our bed! Fantastic hosts, amazing wild life right on your doorstep and perfect privacy. We took our own food and cooked for ourselves and had a...

Had a great stay at the Nugget lodge. Willie and his wife were great hosts. I stayed in the Sea Lion which was very spacious and has a yard that looks out on the beautiful coast. The location and view cannot be beaten. It is directly on the coast. You cannot get closer. The best location in Kaka point. The...

Nugget lodge has 2 self contained units; we were in Lighthouse on the upper deck which has a king bed, open plan living and the most wonderful views across the bay. Breakfast is provided on a tray which is a basic continental breakfast. If you want eggs and bacon, you'll need to shop well in advance of arriving in this...

We stayed in the Sea Lion appartment and it was very comfortable & cozy with a spacious living area (living room, dining room, kitchen, TV & even DVDs), a big bedroom and a bathroom. Free Wi fi too. The appartment has a small yard with an outdoor table and can have direct access to the beach. The other appartment on...

Sensational view, beautiful self contained accommodation, way more than a simple b&b. Well equipped, spacious & facilities to cook for yourself if you want. While we had originally planned to eat out we couldn't tear ourselves away so made do with pasta & luckily a bottle of great NZ pinot. Yes, the bottom unit does not have the unrivalled view...

We rented the lighthouse unit for 3 nights. It was magical. The views were wonderful, and we didn't want to move. We had our own private beach, with our own sea lion! Rock pooling, collecting shells, just chilling out. The Catlins is the perfect place to see wildlife - dolphins, penguins, seals etc. We loved it & can't wait to...
