Description

  • spectacular ever changing view of mountains, sea, and stars
  • sounds of the sea and stream feature in quirky garden
  • Private movie theatre, music and billiards room

The Cliff-top was built to the sun and was unfazed by the recent earthquake. No road noise, just the sound of the sea. Cliff-top garden included in “Great Gardens of New Zealand” by Derek Fell,

The upstairs apartment with separate entrance features a deck with a panoramic view of the Seaward Kaikoura mountain range, Kaikoura bay, beach, and township as well as sea and mountain views from every room. The downstairs apartment was built for tourists also but has been occupied by the owners since 1995 after much pleading by the male (gardener and potter) partner. Great pool table. music, and private movie theatre, in former pottery studio. Lots of artwork everywhere. Exceptional star gazing.

The size of the guest apartment is 50 sq meters. Bunks in the second bedroom, kitchen bench, and bathroom vanity were handcrafted and purpose built. A good selection of New Zealand books and artwork complement the tasteful decor and relaxed atmosphere. Free wireless computer access with good speed.

Suited to whatever your degree of fitness and energy, there are a variety of walks, with stunning views that take you around the owners’ garden, the peninsula or down to the township.

Special conditions: Significant discount for BYO linens. Please inquire if interested. Young children need close supervision as stairs up to the flat inside building are open at the top, the horizontal wires on the deck railing may invite climbing, and there is a pond in the garden. Check in 2:30 pm. Check out 11 am. High season tariff ($175 per night) applies at the time of Seafest weekend and the Kaikoura Hop.

  • We absolutely loved this property

    We absolutely loved this property. From the views to the native plantings, everything was beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The location was fantastic too. It was a short walk down to the shoreline of the peninsula or to the lookout at the top and a short drive to put our kayaks in the water or go into town (which is also an easy walk). We were able to prepare some meals in the small kitchen but wouldn't trade the views, comfort, etc. for a full kitchen.

  • Awesome spot, very quiet and peaceful

    Awesome spot, very quiet and peaceful. Booked at short notice and we could not believe that a property like this with such great views of the bay and mountains was not already booked out for the weekend. This place will definitely be first on our list when we return to Kaikoura.

    The Clifftop apartment is clean, convenient, and warm (we stayed there during the winter months), with great views of the ocean, the snow mountains and the entire township right in front of your eyes. The landscaping of the place itself is artistically tasteful. Great for kids to play and explore. Highly recommended!
