  • Ideal for a couple with modest expectations of a New Zealand bach

    Ideal for a couple with modest expectations of a New Zealand bach. Within walking distance of the wharfs as well as some great food places. Quiet location.

  • The place wasnt cleaned

    The place wasnt cleaned. A dirty dried up tea bag was thrown behind the rubbish bin in the kitchen. The toilet area smelt.

    Ohh Andrew, sorry to hear that. I know that the company who rent from us,have just recent employed new cleaners, so I hope that side of it will improve. We as owners don't get up very often however one time we arrived and there was a terrible smell in the bathroom. It was the mop so I removed it outside. I think.I will.leave a notice for the cleaners.

    Poor choice from us to small, no dining table, shower poor, no hot water for 1 day, holiday homes should turn on water in morning, we required showers on arrival . rating 1

    Sorry to hear that it was too small for your needs Wayne, there is no room for a dining table, but I have just purchased some fold down tables which will be arriving soon, hopefully that will help. I hope you enjoyed the sights of Kaikoura and what the town had to offer. Thanks for your feedback.

    Good spot for our fishing trip, drive way not so wide for boat though , will be better if two foot wider , big boats could be parked on road though. Would be also good if rubbish bags were provided and information for local collection given.Also linen was provided , but beds not made on arrival etc , maybe this is standard for a batch , but could be a good idea in future to fell more Holliday mode for every one etc.all and all a good quite, cosy retreat , close to everything . Thanks
