The Hideaway @ Kakanui

 Property : This property has everything needed for a good or bad weather stay and is very comfortable. Location : Conveniently close to the River Mouth, headland and the beach is reasonably close by over the hill. There is a cute wee Playground nearby. Friendly locals.

The Hideaway @ Kakanui

 I liked the art work, the handmade cushions and the cosy feel of the bach. It was in a great location just over the road from the beach and river where I went for a walk every day.

 We had a great stay, such a lovely spot and the house was a treasure. Thank you. 

The Hideaway @ Kakanui

 Enjoyed every second of our stay here. The bach has everything you could ever need and more. Very peaceful, clean, comfortable and we loved the decor. Like a home away from home. We will be back. 

Kakanui- Seaviews, North Otago

 Quiet, tidy, easy to find, had most essentials, plus a few extras! 

Kakanui- Seaviews, North Otago

 We really enjoyed staying at Kakanui - great variety of beach walks close by. Very handy to have a local dairy and restaurant. The house was great and very child-friendly. Our 4-year-old loved having her own inflatable bed in our room, and the box of children's books and toys provided lots of entertainment. The open layout and deck were great. We definitely want to come back for another stay!
