Modern Kakanui Beach House

 Neither the view nor the property disappointed. We had a wonderful time sitting out on the covered deck and were able to enjoy the property regardless of the weather. We would definitely stay again.

Modern Kakanui Beach House

 The house was modern, clean and tidy, had excellent facilities, great views and was in a quiet neighbourhood. 

KAKANUI luxury retreat, stunning beach views

 The property is extremely comfortable, spacious and well kept. The relaxing ambience and sense of space is complimented by the extensive gardens and the wonderful view. I can't imagine there's a better place to stay in Kakanui. Could a thing be done to make it even better? Not really, but I suppose some sun loungers and a larger cooking pot would be nice. 

KAKANUI luxury retreat, stunning beach views

 Beautifully restored property with lots of family history. More like a house than a bach, but has been presented well. It was a relaxing stay and we were reluctant to leave!! Great location with good walks and close to Oamaru and Moeraki. 

The Hideaway @ Kakanui

 Great little bach, real kiwi gem. Had a lovely time staying there, plenty to do and see in the surrounding area.
