Kakanui is a quiet, peaceful village beside the sea just ten minutes drive south of Oamaru down the scenic coastal road. On the outskirts of Oamaru there is the North Otago Golf course if you are keen for 18 holes, visitors are welcome and green fees are only $20. Next you will come across Old Bones Backpackers who have outdoor hot tubs for hire. What better way to unwind after a trek around one of the many walks in the district or be pampered at the spa, by appointment only. As you come into Kakanui from the north end is The Coast Cafe/Restaurant. Why cook when you can dine in or takeaway a gourmet burger? Or if you are coming from the south, turn off the main highway at Maheno and there is Purton's Cafe (formerly the Maheno Tavern) where you can enjoy some good home cooking and hospitality. If you have forgotten something chances are you will be able to get it at the local convenience store just a minutes walk away. There is a boat ramp and a local fishing club, so bring your boat if you have one. Pack your fishing rods and fish off the rocks or the Kananui Bridge or riverbanks. Whitebait seasons runs from 15th August until 30th November so if you are visiting during this time bring your net. We have 4 Kayaks available upon request, if you feel like a leisurely paddle up the river. If you are into jet skiing, surfing, paddle boarding or just a swim there are three good beaches, one a few minutes walk away at Kakanui, two minutes drive over the bridge at Taranui is Campbells Bay and the third five minutes drive away is All Day Bay. So pack your togs and jandals and come and have holiday at The Guest House, Kakanui where it's all at your backdoor,
