Hi there and welcome to our brand new slice of heaven on the coast and on the doorstep of the Catlins Rainforest National Park. ‘Tiroroa’ is our barn style property, completed late 2019. It is perched on top of the hill overlooking the whole of Porpoise and Curio Bay sitting on its own hectare of land.

The space
This is our escape from Queenstown and we want to share it with others that are looking for a comfortable place to stay by this amazing coastline. With modern amenities and fitted out in a mid century style reflecting local textures and colours, it really is a world away from anywhere else. Just a walk or short drive from the beach for world class surfing, or a 5 minute walk to the amazing cliffs of Blue Cod Bay, or a stroll down to the Petrified (for the rare yellow eyed penguins) or Living Forest, there is plenty to keep you occupied. If that’s not your thing, then there you can sit in the lounge or on the large sheltered deck and simply watch it from afar.
Rain or shine, this place makes you relax.
