  • Carol's house was a great place to stay

    Carol's house was a great place to stay. It was spacious with a wonderful outdoor space and garden, very relaxing and just what we needed. About a 10 minute drive into Kaikoura it was a great spot for exploring the area. A real highlight was the log-fire all set and ready to go, a very homely and welcoming touch.

  • Quiet and peaceful setting with lovely backyard to enjoy the warm summer...

    Quiet and peaceful setting with lovely backyard to enjoy the warm summer days & evenings. Just a short run up the road to South Bay where there are great rocks in the shallows to snorkel and explore at low tide thanks to the 2016 earthquake!
