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!

  • 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.

    Basic but cute wee cottage with all the necessities. Flies were a bit off-putting though.

    We really enjoyed our stay, it was perfect for the two of us. We do like to watch the news etc, but could not get regular television on? Also, instead of the couch outside, perhaps a table and chairs? All very minor as we had a wonderful time and will definitely be back! :-)
