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.

Plenty of street parking for boats and room for tents in the sheltered garden.

There is also a fish filleting area

  • Nice location being close to Kaikura

    Nice location being close to Kaikura. The Bach is well appointed, all mod cons, although water pressure a little low in shower. The nearby road seemed a little noisy sometimes, but this may have been due to the ongoing construction on the road (more trucks and "clumping" of cars from lights). There is also a nearby rail line, but this has few trains. Think this would be an excellent Bach for a couple of families with kids, as garden and house is fairly large.

    The property was comfortable and most importantly warm for our few days in Kaikoura in winter.

  • Nice Bach

    Nice Bach. Very well appointed, i.e. good facilities. Found the road a little noisy, but this may have been because there are lots of roadworks and so lots of big trucks and "clumping" of cars passing once lights (for roadworks) turn green. Also found the occasional train noisy (there seems to be one at c. 9:30 pm which is fairly shocking the first time you hear it!). But admittedly I am very sensitive to human noise, others may find no problem (no other reviewers seem to have an issue). The garden is very big and nice. The verandah also very big and nice, with a hammock. Water pressure a little low. Owner is also good at responding to queries. Overall, found the Bach clean and well stocked, but wouldn't call it "romantic" - more like "functional".
