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 .

 The house was very comfortable and well equipped. A great base for exploring the region - at the beach, but only 10 minutes from town. 

Kakanui Escape - The Cockies Quarters.

 This is a lovely warm house with plenty of room and a gorgeous view. We loved our stay here and the kids loved being close to the beach and the wee playground around the corner. Would recommend staying here!
