Stunning views - surrounded by nature

 The location of this property is absolutely stunning and it is impossible for photos to do the view justice. Despite the fact we were there to cycle in the vicinity, the almost overwhelming temptation was to sit on the deck and gaze at the ocean and the Seaward Kaikouras(mountains). This property is beautifully appointed, very comfortable, close to town, whale watch and great seafood. Would recommend to anyone wanting the ultimate Kaikoura view.

Anderson Apartment

 We found this "bach" to be ideal for our family. We spent loads of time playing pool, ping pong, swimming and tennis with our children. I would consider this place to be family friendly. The units were clean, roomy and fresh. Nice that we had a laundry in the garage. Beds were comfortable and the surrounding units were quiet. The view from the other spa pool (there is two) is amazing. Mountains and a bit of lake. We are considering going back again.
