Julie & Kerry live on site so are here to book guests in to their rooms and cater for a delicious breakfast in our communal dining room! Our door is always open for any enquiries our guests may have and we can arrange any activities you may be interested in!

Other things to note

Kerry and I are sure you will enjoy your Kaikoura experience with so many world class activities to get involved in and superb restaurants and cafes to enjoy.
As many guests say ""Where else in the world do the snow capped mountain ranges meet the ocean"
When planning your stay we do advise at least a 2 day stay as our activities are very weather and sea dependant and we hate our guests to miss these trips !

What an AWESOME place to stay! The host, Julie is friendly, very helpful and makes sure you're comfortable. We fell in love with this place of stay and would definitely want to stay here again. The room has a super cozy bed, the view from the room is amazing, super neat room and very spacious with all amenities provided. Oh! not to miss the delicious breakfast Julie gave us. Perfectly scenic, close to restaurants, and a beautiful beach to relax with. 5 stars are probably too less.

Julie was super hospitable. She tooke the time to write a personal note to let us know she was out then welcomed us aswell. She made us feel really welcome. The room was really clean and more modern than the pictures look. The views were absolutely amazing, waking up to the snowy mountain and ocean views is hard to beat. Although it was cold outside the room was really warm. Julie was really hospitable at breakfast making us tea and coffee. There was a good selection of cereals and fresh fruit and yoghurt. Amazing place to stay. Loved it!

Beautiful house with remarkable views of Kaikoura town and the sunrise. A quick walk into town and to the beach. The staff were friendly and attentive. Great place for couples or young families. I highly recommend this place!

We stayed in Julie's place for 2 nights in June. Julie wasn't around but her parents and cousin took good care of us. The house is really central (you can walk into town easily), room is clean and view is superb. Cooked breakfast (eggs, bacon etc) would be a nice addition.
