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.

  • Superlative, Blissful, Perfect! This was THE BEST of our many great NZ...

    Superlative, Blissful, Perfect! This was THE BEST of our many great NZ bach experiences. The setting is spectacular, with the snow-capped mountains nearly on the back porch–and the ocean in view over the paddock. The bach itself was pristine, homey, modern, and beautifully decorated, with gorgeous fresh flowers and herbs throughout the cottage. Every detail has been considered: abundant toys for the kids, the pantry well-stocked, a bowl of farm-fresh eggs, and a herb garden. We will return ASAP!

    Staying in this gorgeous cottage is an absolute delight. The pleasure comes from Jessica's boundless enthusiasm for making the cottage wonderfully comfortable and beautifully decorated and from her generosity towards her guests. The setting between mountains and coast is truly spectacular. We will make sure we return for a longer stay next time. Thanks, Jessica!

  • 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!
