Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Just a few kilometres from Slope Point, the southernmost point of the South Island, nestled in the Catlins lie the magical Curio and Porpoise Bays. A small detour from the Southern Scenic Route guides you to a slice of paradise. The area is rich with wildlife, scenic beauty and heritage. Points of interest include a Jurassic Petrified forest, bush walks, swimming, surfing, kayaking and endless Southern Ocean views. The Waikawa Museum highlights the whaling, logging and pioneering heritage of this fertile region. Hector’s Dolphin visit annually from October through to March (occasionally April). You will be able to watch them teach their young to surf the waves just in front of CLOUD9. Walk down the road to the Petrified Forest at the end of the day to watch the Yellow-eyed penguins return onto the rock shelf from a day of fishing to preen and make their way into the flax to feed their hidden hungry chicks.

What a lovely cottage in a stunning setting. The property has all you need, well equipped and very clean. We really appreciated the load of firewood and kindling which we had to use despite it being summer! The views were amazing and we were enthralled at the Hectors dolphins surfing down and frolicking in the waves straight outside the cottage. The icing on the cake was our feathered housemates - after 10pm we would see one on the blue penguins scuttle across the lawn and a few minutes later we could here the excited calls of baby being fed. We thoroughly recommend this cottage and we will be coming back again.

Amazing spot, right on the beach. Great classic kiwi batch/crib. Super comfy beds. Sound of the sea and the fire crackling... soul food. Lots of surfers out when the wind dropped. Saw a yellow eyed penguin when looking at the petrified forest, which is fascinating. Would love to go back to this beautiful, special place.

Stunning location and comfortable crib - walks on the beach outside the door and plenty of penguin chatter to assure you they are flourishing in this beautiful spot. We booked for 3 nights and stayed an extra, and would very much liked a few more days - lots more to do, so we will just have to go back! Curio Cafe just up the road was excellent as well. Cloud9 had all we needed, comfy beds and good kitchen - fabulous views. Melissa was super quick to respond to our last minute booking and wonderful to deal with. All good!!
