This warm, tranquil, modern, three bedroom holiday home, with log fire is situated at Peketa, a small settlement 12 kilometres south of the Kaikoura township, opposite the excellent surfing beach at Kahutara. Open the large bifolding doors to a superb deck and outdoor entertainment area in a large private garden, fully fenced and safe for children. Surrounded by native trees where native birds, including the bellbird, abound.

Also a sleepout in the garden where older children can stay with two bunks and a small deck, hammock and swing.

There are plenty of activities nearby including a Lavender farm, horse trekking, bird watching, bush and beach walks, star watching, restaurants, vineyard, golf course, surf casting, fishing, snorkelling, diving and swimming. The Mount Lyford Ski field is one hours drive and of course there is the whale watching, swimming with the dolphins, and seals. During winter months seal pups can be seen at the Ohau waterfall pool.

Minimum stay during the week one night, weekends two nights.

The house has a new modern kitchen with microwave, TV, video, telephone, CD Player, washing machine, iron, gas BBQ and fridge/freezer.

  • Nothing to dislike about this house

    Nothing to dislike about this house. Stayed 5 nights, enjoyed sitting out listening to the birds in the garden, morning, afternoon and evenings. The house has modern kitchen and bathroom, which all work perfectly and are easy to clean. Bed comfy, Wifi is great (8Mg) when we were there. Thank you Carol for allowing us to stay.
