Bunkers was one of the reasons my stay on Stewart Island was brilliant. It's like the island itself - small, cosy, and everyone sees one another at some point in the lounge/kitchen. For some reason people just don't hang out in the rooms - I guess the warmth of the fireplace helps!
Kaka are frequent visitors before sunset, and they can be cheeky. When I was there Alex and Danilo ran the place, and it's impossible to fault them for their work in keeping the place warm and clean and organising activities and dinners.
Sleep couldn't be more peaceful and comfortable, but if you get cold easily as I do, there are 2 or 3 hot water bottles lying around in the kitchen.
