GrapeView Bed and Breakfast

 The accomodation is well kept and modern. Place is clean and tidy. Dining and living area faces the garden and a nearby vineyard. Spectacular view anytime of the day. Located in a quiet street it is a good place to rest and enjoy a good book or just wine and dine. The wineries of the Bannockburn region is just 5 to 7 mins away. We wish we had made plans for more nights here. If we are ever in this region again, we will definitely come back to this bach.

Queen Charlotte Breakaway Bach

 The property was immaculate, very comfortable and had everything you might need. The location was peaceful and just across the road from the water. There are a couple of good kayaks with all the gear. Set In the beautiful Marlborough Sounds but just a 25 minute drive from Picton. Very welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay there again. 

So Central Apartment

 Very central apartment in walking distance to Queenstown, ships, beach, bars, lake and views of the gondala 

2 Nile Court on Nile Street

 Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous stay. The house is in a central CBD, leafy green area, close to amenities, relaxing, beautifully furnished, i and everything is provided. We had an elderly disabled person with us and the facities were perfect for her. 

301 Oxley's Rock Apartments, Picton waterfront

 Fantastic location overlooking the harbour. Fully equipped for a family or adult group 

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.
