The Clifftop apartments were built in 1992 on a one acre sheep paddock as close to the cliff face as allowed. No road noise, just the sound of the sea. Clifftop garden included in “Great Gardens of New Zealand” by Derek Fell,

The north facing upstairs apartment with separate entrance features a deck with a panoramic view of the Seaward Kaikoura mountain range, Kaikoura bay, beach, and township as well as sea and mountain views from every room. The downstairs apartment was built for tourists also but has been occupied by the owners since 1995 after much pleading by the male (gardener and potter) partner.

The size of the guest apartment is 50 sq metres. Bunks in the second bedroom, kitchen bench, and bathroom vanity were handcrafted and purpose built. A good selection of New Zealand books and artwork complement the tasteful décor and relaxed atmosphere. Wireless computer access.

Suited to whatever your degree of fitness and energy, there are a variety of walks, with exceptional views that take you around the owners’ garden, the peninsula or down to the township.

 What a fantastic apartment! The view, garden, hosts and overall experience was really great. Robert warned me that it was a small apartment but there were 4 adults in our group and we didn't feel at all squashed. Would highly recommend the Clifftop. Thanks Martha, Robert and Seth too. 

 We would highly recommend this Bach if you are visiting the area, fantastic view of Kaikoura! 

 The Clifftop Apartment is probably situated in the best location on the planet. Sitting on the deck or looking from the window in EVERY room is a view of the snow capped peaks over Kaikoura bay. The unit is warm, clean, well furnished, with fabulous art, books, WiFi and anything else you could need for a stay. The garden is a highlight of the property with many nooks to explore. A credit to Rob and Martha and a pleasure that we felt privileged to share. Highly recommend! 

 Absolutely loved the view. The apartment was tidy and very comfortable. Loved the art on the walls. A very peaceful place to stay. 

 The view was amazing and the outside private deck was excellent to relax on. Found it not too far from town, South shore. Excellent walks close by. Clean spacious accomodation recommend.
