Kakanui Escape - The Cockies Quarters.

 Incredible house if what you want is to relax and have a good time with family and friends. Good spot for fishing too. The house is better than what it looks in the photos. 

Kakanui Escape - The Cockies Quarters.

 A beautiful home and location - the photos don't do the place justice! Was a great place to getaway to and have an amazing family holiday with lots of indoor and outdoor activities at hand. We will definitely be looking to come back again.

 All of it. See description above. 

Kakanui Escape - The Cockies Quarters.

 The house was roomy, good for the grandchildren to play, plenty of good size bedrooms and bathrooms. Kakanui is a great little hideaway by the coast and just off the main road, easy to find .
