A luxurious stay in a crib set in the most beautiful surroundings Absolutely luxurious accommodation with lovely hosts and so much attention to every detail to make you feel comfortable and spoiled. We really loved the design of the crib, the lovely garden and the house. Big thanks to Helen and Peter for their warm hospitality in the Christmas period overseas. And for the wake up call in the early morning to see the sea lion on the beach. 😊We would love to come back.
Response from Owner
Thank you Guy & Muriel for your lovely comments. We are so pleased that what we have created here and share with others like yourselves was fully met. Yes, it is a unique location and one we love dearly and are very happy to expose and share with all of our guests, and visitors to Jacks Bay. Catlins Region is certainly a beautiful place to explore while basing yourselves here in Jacks Bay to achieve this, as you found out and allowing 4-5 days minimum to achieve this.

The problem about writing and letting people know how great this place is, that it may be booked when we want to go again. Lovely place with everything you could need in a fantastic location. Central to travel & see more of the Caitlins. Lovely home baking on arrival as a treat. Helen & Peter providing great information & being there if you needed anything. x2 amazing sunrises. Hoping to get back for another stay soon..
Response from Owner
Great to read that you enjoyed staying in our wee crib and loved the location. Certainly, central to travel to all the highlights that the Catlins Region has to offer. We thoroughly enjoy sharing our knowledge to help with your experience in this beautiful unique Region.
A truly beautiful, relaxing spot. Private and peaceful. Thank you Helen for your kindness and gentle hospitality. It was lovely to get away from the rush and bustle for a few days.
