Junky house with a great view and location
If you care about cleanliness and functionality, this is probably not a good place for your stay. If your priorities are price, view and location, you will be happy. The house seems like it needs someone to care about it and come clear the spider webs and clean the grease off of things. The toilet is separate from the sink and shower by 2 rooms and in essentially added into the garage in a dark room with a concrete floor that is “padded” by 3 worn out plastic exterior floor mats. There were 2 empty rolls of toilet paper on the floor in the bathroom when we arrived and only 1 roll of TP to last us through our stay. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are up a steep ladder in the garage and get very hot. We ended up not using them because no one wanted to navigate the ladder at night so we had our son stay downstairs with us. The pans were dirty and had to be washed before use and the stove was filthy and one of the burners didn’t work.
We booked this place last minute when there were no other places to stay otherwise we would have chosen differently. That said, the location and view are excellent. We did notice some noise from on of the restaurants on Saturday night but with the windows closed we couldn’t hear it. I don’t like leaving negative reviews but this place was pretty junky.
Thank you for your feedback. Your review is very important to us and has been forwarded onto our housekeeping and maintenance department. Cleanliness is a very important part of our business and please accept our apology that our housekeeping at the time did not meet the requirements. This has been addressed.
We can confirm that there are further development plans in the future for this lovely cottage. But at this stage it has been set as a very affordable bach centrally located with superb views and a lovely new deck to enjoy the outside area.
Great location close to town
Clean and tidy in a good central location with just a short walk to the main street. Well maintained older house with off street parking, garaging and a decent size section. Good value for money in this part of town with fantastic sea views.
Views for Miles
An amazing house, very spacious with breath taking views! Loved every minute
Thank you for a lovely review! We look forward to welcoming you back to Kaikoura! Best wishes the team at Kaikoura Holiday Homes Ltd
Stunning view and a lovely garden
The best features of this propertyare the view and the garden to relax in. The lounge and bedroom are fine and the bed is comfortable. Wi-Fi is available at the local library. It was let down emails complaing about previous visitors.
Great Kiwi Bach experience
If you know what to expect you will really enjoy this place. Spectacular views, quirky Kiwi style Bach. Kitchen old , from a bygone era, but operational. Make sure you get linen service. Downstairs Master Queen bed comfortable. Up the stairs, well more like a ladder reallly, there are 3 single beds. Only one toilet off the laundry.
Very well situated just above the town, with great walking paths to foreshore.
Good value for money.
This charming art deco bach has the most beautiful views of the ocean and mountains. We could walk into the township in minutes.
