About Sally Grimmett
We are now retired but have promised our kids that we will never sell. Our kids and our grandchildren love playing into the rock pools, snorkeling in the bay, and eating crayfish and butterfish. Our kids loved swimming with the seals from an early age. Personally we enjoy sitting on the verandah and watching life go by.
Sally Grimmett purchased this House in 1991
Why Sally Grimmett chose South Bay
We come from the South Island and this property was our foot in the South Island. It still is for our kids who now live in the US and Singapore.
What makes this House unique
We liked the simplicity of the house, its spaciousness and easy living. It harks back to the 50's with the old style kitchen and bathroom and deep bath/shower.

South Bay Bach
Had everything you need for a short break away. Clean and cosy in a lovely setting.
We really enjoyed our stay
Kaikoura Kiwi classic
A quintessential Kiwi bach with a bit more. Cost, comfortable, sunny and very quirky. Tucked away in a nice private setting on the southern side of Kaikoura peninsula, and really handy to the sea and walks. Sally the owner was a great communicator.
Easy check in. Loved the location
Kiwi bach in South Beach
It was wonderful to stay at this classic Kiwi bach in South Beach. We could enjoy a lot of nature and walks in the surrounds
Excellent bach in South Bay and owner very easy to deal with, accomodating and responsive
Kaikoura is an area of rich marine life surrounded by the majestic Kaikoura Ranges. View the whales, marine birds by boat and/or swim with the dolphins, seals or take fishing excursion to catch your own dinner. Kayaking and snorkeling/diving is another option.
There are short walks along the beach and harbour areas where something is always happening, or longer striding walks around the peninsula headlands and beaches to view the seals up close. Finish up with a crayfish sandwich at the ood carts at Jimmy Armers Beach.
