Description

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.

  • We spent a very enjoyable 2 nights in this very comfortable apartment

    We spent a very enjoyable 2 nights in this very comfortable apartment. The magnificent views from the very large balcony & all rooms meant that we reluctantly left to explore Kaikoura. The beachside pub (worth booking) is a 15 minute walk down a steep, but easily accessible track plus another 5-10 minutes along the road. Well worth the round trip. Highly recommended stay.

    Great little property that easily fitted our family due to its outside deck. The view is amazing and the owners are a fantastic couple who made us feel very welcome. Would recommend this property to anyone who was passing through Kaikoura!

    Very comfortable and well equipped apartment set in beautiful gardens, it was a perfect meeting place for our family of four. Close enough to the town, but set apart for some quiet respite and lovely walks nearby. Rob and Martha were friendly and attentive hosts, who made us feel welcome. Watching a pod of dolphins frolic in the bay from the deck on our last morning was a special treat. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

  • The rooms are just like the pictures

    The rooms are just like the pictures. The place is great and it was nice to have two rooms and a lovely porch. Amazing view - we saw dolphins swimming from our deck. Gardens are gorgeous. Kitchen is small but has basics - no problem for us since we eat out a lot.

    The unique located apartement offers you all you need to spend a perfect time in Kaikoura. The view is just dreamlike! Martha and Rob created a magic Hideaway. We would love to stay there again.
