About Surat Bay Lodge

Surat Bay Lodge at Owaka is a small, friendly Lodge, backpackers/hostel and 2 self contained cottages (Kepplestone by the Sea), (BBH member) right beside the beach at Surat Bay Road, with fantastic views of the beach and Catlins Estuary from your window. Native sea lions and pups live right at our doorsteps. Stay a while and enjoy all of the secrets of the Catlins, its splendid wild coastline, deserted beaches, wildlife, waterfalls, petrified forest, cathedral caves, walking tracks, magnificent native trees and much more.
Don't rush or you will miss the seal pups playing below the Lighthouse and at Surat Bay during the summer months. From dawn to dusk your day will be full. Those that rush will miss the best the Catlins has to offer.
Surat Bay Lodge, Backpackers/Hotel and cottages (Kepplestone by the Sea) has been catering to visitors from all over the world. Jack & Ester Johnson took possession of Surat Bay Lodge in 10th March 2016 and Kepplestone by the Sea in 2004 they have provided affordable accommodation since.
The accommodation is a short drive from the coast 5 kms from Owaka township, shops, restaurant, supermarket, cafe, information centre and fuel (24 hours self service), 30 km from Balclutha.
