Restful Sea and River Views.

 Great location with excellent view of Rural and Sea from dinning room. Comfy furniture and nice Retro finish. 

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. 

Panorama sea view elevated lodge

 Such a wonderful quiet and peaceful location with only the lulling sound of the sea at night. Nice to have a car port off the road and enjoyed a visit from a friendly cat in the morning.

Kakanui - Modern, Sunny Coastal Escape

 Cracker-Nui is the BEST! It is a beautiful bach with an amazing view of the beach. So relaxing. We had such a lovely weekend, it was such a shame we had to leave!!! The property is lovely. Comfortable and clean with everything you could possibly need! The location is fantastic and it is an easy walk to the beach.

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.
