Steps off the beach in the middle of Halfmoon Bay on Stewart Island, this small hotel is a cozy center of island life. The South Sea Hotel has nine comfortable studio units that include en suite bathroom, phone, TV and a small kitchen, plus Wi-Fi. The historic timber-frame building on the waterfront is complimented by the new addition of the modern suites. Enjoy the views from the front patio and picnic tables, and the banter of local islanders. The hotel’s pub is a year-round social gathering spot for tiny Oban, the small community that is the island's only settlement. Common areas are adorned with historic photographs, some dating back as many as 100 years and telling the story of a hardy life on the island.
