In just over an hour from Dunedin or Timaru, you can be relaxing at our warm, sunny holiday home.

You will love the gorgeous beach walk from Campbells Bay (just down the hill) to All Day Bay. Your fun could include; surfing, fishing or whitebaiting.

Watch the waves roll into the beach from our large sunny deck. There is a private outdoor bath (fantastic for a romantic bath for 2 under the stars). There is a badminton court outside for your enjoyment also (raquets provided)

Children will love exploring the rockpools and finding special sea creatures. You may see seals on the rocks and sometimes dolphins come into Campbells Bay.

The holiday home is a perfect spot for family and extended family getaways, and has been enjoyed by many so far. Also a great place to wind down by yourself or with a loved one.

Use it as a base to explore the Waitaki region including "Steampunk" capital of the world, Oamaru (a 10 minute drive away)

Only 25 minutes drive to CUISINE magazine NZ Restaurant of the year, RIVERSTONE KITCHEN (serving delicious seasonal food) and also near FLEURS PLACE in Moeraki (famous for fabulous seafood)

  • A lovely home to relax and unwind

    A lovely home to relax and unwind. Beautiful views of the coastline from the bedrooms that have direct access to the deck. Plenty to do locally including Totara Estate, Vanishing World Trail, Moeraki Boulders and beach walks. Would highly recommend Kakanui as a destination for a family holiday.

  • We really enjoyed our stay

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house has everything you need and was perfect for 2 small families. We loved the sheltered garden, great views from the deck and short walk down the hill to the beach.
