About Us

Your hosts, Heather & John HurstYour hosts at Kenthurst B&B are John and Heather Hurst. An outgoing and friendly couple, they are passionate and knowledgeable about the Catlins area.

Having retired from farming a few years ago they set up this peaceful B&B in Kaka Point, just moments from the beach. Extremely well-travelled themselves, John and Heather have an understanding of the home-comforts travellers look for when on the road.

In between hosting guests and entertaining their grandchildren, John and Heather enjoy a number of hobbies. Heather is a keen gardener and golfer and walks each morning along the beach at Kaka Point. John is a regular lawn bowler and can be seen cruising around the local countryside on his three-wheeled Spyder motorbike. They both share a love for the outdoors and have tramped and climbed extensively throughout New Zealand and overseas.

If you want to experience Kaka Point and it's many surrounding attractions through the eyes of two locals who genuinely love this part of New Zealand, then please contact us and come to stay for a night or two at Kenthurst B&B. We would love to see you!
