Description

  • Breath-taking views of the adjacent mountains and down to the Pacific Ocean.
  • The perfect rural setting just 6 kms North of Kaikoura township.
  • Relaxing, comfortable self-contained paradise.

Kincaid Cottage is situated in open green countryside with breath-taking views of the adjacent mountains and down to the Pacific Ocean. This self-contained cottage has it all! The rooms are spacious and luxuriously furnished, both having their own well- appointed bathrooms. The lounge and dining area has a TV, DVD player and free-view digital box, a library, DVD’s, guitar, plus games cabinet.



There is of course a fully equipped kitchen. Local hosts Jessica and Greg are happy to help with recommendations for some of the many activities available in the area, the most famous being whale watching and swimming with dolphins. There is also a large selection of excellent cafes and restaurants in the township. Kaikoura is a unique town where the mountains meet the sea. Here you will find a vast array of wildlife. There is much to see and do; well worth at least a few days stay. The cottage is situated in the grounds of the historic Kincaid lodge which can trace its European history back to 1856.This may seem young for our international visitors but is old for New Zealand. The Kincaid “run” was named after Kincaid in Stirling, Scotland where the second owners lived. The existing homestead was completed in 1903. Kincaid Cottage was completed in 2008. Jessica & Greg look forward to sharing their piece of country paradise with you.

Special conditions: Kincaid Cottage has a strict no smoking inside policy. We do allow smoking in the garden. Family friendly. Minimum two night stay.

  • The cottage was even better than the photos on the website

    The cottage was even better than the photos on the website. We arrived in the dark so had no idea what the scenery was like, waking up in the morning and drawing back the curtains to mountains, birds singing and sheep in the field next door was just wonderful. And then we found out we had a sea view from the kitchen too! The bed was enormous and very comfortable, and lovely to be able to have a bath. Fresh farm eggs were also a real bonus! Thanks Jessica, we loved every moment the cottage!

  • Kincaid cottage is absolutely beautiful

    Kincaid cottage is absolutely beautiful. The surroundings are delightful and whilst we couldn't see the mountains because of the weather, we have no doubt the view is stunning. The cottage itself is luxuriously appointed and has everything you could possibly need. Our children were incredibly happy to free range the property and loved seeing the animals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to come back here again should we ever return to Kaikoura. Simply superb.
