The space
Our Chalets were purpose built to provide our guests with privacy and comfort while enjoying the Catlins scenery and wildlife. They accommodate up to five people, consisting of a private queen bedroom, a single bed in the lounge area, and a double sofa bed in the lounge. All linens and towels are provided as well as a TV and DVD player. This is a fully self-contained unit, with bathroom and shower facilities. The Chalet has a fully equipped kitchen with wood features and floors made from native hardwood, salvaged wind-fallen logs on our farm. There are tea and coffee makings provided.

The Chalets face the morning sun and have a covered veranda with large wooden chairs so guests can enjoy the forest birdsong even if it rains. Tuis and Bellbirds frequently visit the flax surroundings and at night Moreporks may perch on the outside trellis.

There is a separate laundry facility with a washing machine and dryer in close walking distance at an additional coin fee.

The Catlins is a must see during your South Island adventure, so stop in while your on the Southern Scenic Route and book to stay with us in our luxury chalet today!

Guests are able to walk next door to grab a morning espresso coffee, fresh baking, lunch or enjoy an evening dinning experience at the Whistling Frog Restaurant during its operating hours, 9.30 am - 8 pm, with access to exclusive guest happy hour. May be closed in winter.

Other things to note
Lots of native bird-friendly flaxes and nectar plants to attract the bellbirds and tuis.
