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!

  • A good little spot to relax

    A good little spot to relax. Very well set up and well stocked with plenty of cleaning products, emergency supplies and other extras ? Plenty of firewood. Comfortable beds. Interesting to wander around the jetties, the Peninsula Walking Track is 5 mins away and Kaikoura Kayaks do a great 3 hour trip. The whole place suited us well.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A beautifully appointed little bach. Friendly neighbours and a great location, the walk over the hill into Kaikoura is lovely and completely doable even for the out of shapers.
