Kakanui - Modern, Sunny Coastal Escape

 Our family really enjoyed the time we spent at this house. It was well presented and equipped with everything that we needed during our stay. Close to the beach one way and views the other way that make you keep looking just in case you missed something! Good communication from the owner before, during and after. Hope to return.

 Another wonderful stay at Cracker-Nui - we love this place and hope to keep returning for many years to come! The best little bach in Otago :) All your needs are catered to and the bach is very well fitted out with cooking, relaxing and cleaning facilities. We love the garden and the deck is the best deck in the world! Hope to get back here very soon.
