Wonderful house very convenient but also very private. Beautifully situated, we couldn't stop taking pictures from the deck, and the activities we did in Kaikoura were some of our favorite on our trip through the South Island (dolphin encounter, kayak, Maori cultural tour). The master bedroom on the main floor and the other bedrooms downstairs gave some lovely privacy. The house was well equipped with everything we needed to cook, and town offered a variety of restaurants as well. Wish we lived a few hour drive away rather than 13 hour flight, we'd be back often! This house is truly a gem with great amenities including the washer/dryer and heated floor/towel bars. Absolutely fantastic.



This house is amazing!! Beautifully modern, yet still cosy and homely. Leanne is both helpful & approachable. All required information is provided before you have to ask for it!! Would strongly recommend it to anyone.



What a beautiful home! The house is spotlessly clean with amazing views. The spa bath is fantastic! We would love to come and stay here again, it was a very relaxing end to out honeymoon. thankyou very much for the champers! Debbie
