Lovely cosy unit up a long driveway in the popular holiday destination of Southbay.

The unit is small, but traps the afternoon sun making it a lovely warm, family friendly batch. We have left some of the best boardgames, books and dvds on the shelf for you to use during your stay.

This unit is the ideal base for adventurous families with fishing charters, golf courses, kayak rentals, bike trails, walking tracks, surfcasting and snorkelling all on your doorstep.

There are also plenty of rock pools to explore and one of the best swimming beaches in Kaikoura just down the road.

The recently refurbished Caves restaurant is also just up the road and offers a range of tea room style food, coffee and takeaways.

A short drive to Kaikoura township where you can book a whale watch or dolphin encounter tour.

For a limited time, and subject to availability at time of booking, for guests with boats we are happy to provide boat parking for a 16-18ft boat.

For the month of December, if you fly in, we can provide linen free of charge!

  • The location of the property is excellent

    The location of the property is excellent. A very short walk to the beach and nature walks. The main town Kaikoura is approx 5 mins drive away. However, we had issues with the cleanliness of the property - this could have been due to the previous visitor. The place had a strong cooking smell and was inhabited by lots of flies living and dead. We left the place cleaner than we found it but the first impression willstay with us - we would not return.

    Place was perfect for the weekend, and the thoughtful extras like bread, milk and chocolates made our stay.

  • This property is as shown in the pictures

    This property is as shown in the pictures. What isn't shown is that it is at the end of a long alley with nothing to look at except your vehicle and a fence. We left a note stating it didn't work for us and that we didn't stay there we and didn't hear anything back.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I am sorry that it didn't work for you, I found your note when I returned from my own holiday just this week. We realise that the bach is lacking in views and have never tried to imply that it has them. We have factored this into the cost of our property. It is just a short walk down the driveway to the beach and playground, and for rainy days it is well equipped with a fireplace, board games and dvds.
