Choose to reserve either (or both) of our two self-contained houses for your exclusive use. They have fully equipped kitchens, dining, living and laundry areas.
The Top House features two double rooms, one triple and a twin, plus two bathrooms.
The Bottom House has a bedroom with ensuite, another with four bunk beds and a separate shower and toilet.

Hilltop Accommodation is nestled alongside native forest on a sheep and beef farm, overlooking the tiny seaside community of Papatowai, in the heart of the Catlins. We invite you to stay awhile, and share our beautiful ocean and valley views, relax in our tranquil gardens, and wake to the bellbird dawn chorus.
Rated by The Observer as one of New Zealand’s top ten accommodation establishments, we are also highly recommended by Trip Advisor, Travelbug, and Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Lets Go travel guides.
We support the principles of Sustainable Tourism South and the Catlins Care Code, and are taking steps towards sustainability, for instance by providing recycling and composting facilities, encouraging energy conservation, and using renewable firewood for heating. We welcome your ideas to help preserve our unique environment.
Discover and experience Hilltop. Our place is warm and comfortable – even if the weather is not. Most guests that come for one night wish they could stay longer.
