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.

  • Great private location a short drive south of Kaikoura

    Great private location a short drive south of Kaikoura. Handy access to Hikurangi Marine Reserve - fab location for scuba diving. Short walk to Peketea Beach for snorkelling/surfing. Sunny charming house, open plan, well equipped and large garden too. Some good shaded areas - perfect for drying surf/dive gear with out exposing to direct sunlight. Really enjoyed our stay. Do note need to take own linen & clean for self! Only downside is shower water pressure which is just average.
