    “We loved our stay in Surf inn Eco Cottage.”

    It is really well positioned in the Catlins. The cottage was clean and easy to live in, it had everything we needed. Was great to have it warm and cosy on our arrival. We will return again. Thanks

Paua and crayfish are swimming in the area for those keen on their snorkelling, and the magical rainforest and waterfalls in the area will appeal to all.
