Beautiful property in the countryside!!! Bright & airy house.. Snow capped mountains in one direction or a short walk in the other direction, & we were on the beach. Beautiful garden & grounds. Private tennis courts were available, but we didn't have time to play. Very roomy & super clean, with all the acutriments in the kitchen (even food for handfeeding the animals, if we desired). We would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodations in Kaikoura.
