  •  A truly spectacular view from a beautiful apartment! We loved every minute of our stay here. A storm came in during our stay in Kaikoura but we still felt like we were able to make the most of our time because we could just enjoy the view from our warm and cozy apartment, no matter what the weather was like. The place is full of beautiful art and little touches like a CD player and CDs from New Zealand artists. The small kitchen is very well-equipped. A really lovely stay! 


  •  A wonderful place to stay! A well designed, beautifully kept apartment surrounded by lovely gardens with a view so stunning that you have to see it to believe it. We are already looking forward to hopefully staying there again in the future and would highly recommend The Clifftop Apartment to everyone. 

  •  The Clifftop Apartment is delightful. It is extremely well equipped and very well presented. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The view is just amazing. If you're lucky enough to get a good sunset or sunrise you'll be very happy. We were very fortunate and saw both. If you like gardens or pottery then Robert is happy to give you a guided tour of the garden, which features in the best gardens of New Zealand, and his pottery workshop where he worked for 15 years. Highly recommended
