  • Barnacle Bills was brilliant! The lodge was perfect and super spacious for...

    Barnacle Bills was brilliant! The lodge was perfect and super spacious for two families to share. The children thought the two pigs were a hoot and a big highlight. An easy walk up to the look out and an easy walk down the hill to the township. The adults enjoyed a very active game of monopoly. Barnacle Bills is situated in a peaceful and tranquilly part of Kaikoura, just lovely!

  • Great views and super relaxing

    Great views and super relaxing. Everything you need is there and it was all beautifully clean and organised. The only challenge was the rooster next door who was an early riser! Thanks for a great stay.

  • Lovely stay at the cottage

    Lovely stay at the cottage. Perfect accomodation for 4 people, with sea views, comfy beds, very clean and tidy house, well appointed kitchen. The 2 pigs stole the show and are living composters. Great location on the peninsula with many walking tracks nearby. Highly recommended.

  • The property was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed

    The property was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was great; great walks near the property and great views. The property had plenty of room and we were more then comfortable. The kids loved the place and had freedom to play. I will be staying here next time we are in Kaikoura. Thankyou so much for the wonderful property!
