Kenthurst Lodge B & B
Ranked #5 of 6 Kaka Point B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 February 2011

We stayed here for two nights to explore the Catlins and could not have been happier with our stay. John and Heather were amazing hosts- they recommended sites, gave us directions, called restaurants for us, and even did our laundry for us! Our room was very nice, clean, new, and modern.

We stayed in the Kenthurst Lodge for 3 nights and we were overwhelmed by the interior equipment and design of the rooms. We were in a very spacious and modern double room with a great bathroom with shower and bathtub. The room had a direct access to a patio with beautiful views into the garden and to the sea.
Heather has given us a lot of ideas what to do and especially told us the perfect times for watching the penguins.
The lodge has got two rooms with a shared kitchen were you can help yourself to breakfast. It is especially recommendable for two couples travelling together.
The B&B is a good starting point for exploring the Catlins, especially around Nugget Point.

We enjoyed a delightful one-night stay at Kenthurst Lodge, a modern property with an amazing view over Kaka Point. The bedroom, bathroom and shared guest lounge have every comfort (including a very comfortable bed), beautifully decorated rooms with a terrace or lounge from which to enjoy the garden. The home-made biscuits and petits fours were a lovely touch, and delicious! The 'help-yourself' breakfast in the guest lounge is a great idea. We were made very welcome and looked after excellently. It's only a few minutes drive to Nugget Point from here, and a couple of minutes walk to the Point pub for dinner. A great place from which to explore the Catlins.

Beautiful room with a breakfast room complete with complimentary laundry, snacks and beautiful gardens made our stay great. However Heather and John's helpfulness in recommending great adventures and places to visit, doing our laundry, proactively helping with our future plans for our trip when our next stay on a cruise was canceled, and making my birthday very special with a gift was so extra-ordinary. We felt like we were staying with friends rather than a hotel! Your visit will be memorable as ours was.
