Description

  • spectacular ever changing view of mountains, sea, and stars
  • sounds of the sea
  • stream feature in quirky garden

The Cliff-top was built to the sun as close to the cliff face as allowed. 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 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. 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: $30 discount off tariff TOTAL for BYO linens for first 2 people. $10 more off TOTAL, each extra person. 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.

    The property has the best view I have ever seen - it is literally breathtaking. The garden is also absolutely beautiful. It was sunny when we visited and the apartment was lovely and warm.

  • This was a wonderful place to stay

    This was a wonderful place to stay. The view from the self contained apartment was absolutely stunning, so much so we were happy to just stay there and relax. Hosts were very friendly and would certainly look at staying there again in the future.
