Ruth's house was my greatest experience using Airbnb. Ruth is very kind and welcoming and greets you at her beautiful home as soon as you arrive. She offered fantastic advice on things to do in Kaikoura, stocks the rooms with plenty of food, and prepares the two large bedrooms like a five star hotel. Even the towels smell of soothing lavender. The spa is a wonderful capstone to a top-notch accommodation. Your only concern when booking should be that someone else may book it before you! Thanks Ruth!

Ruth's airbnb is just perfect when you have a car. It's quiet and comfortable, the Wifi is fast and reliable, you have your're own bathroom, there is a jacuzzi right in front of your room (!!!), the neighbourhood is amazing since you are close to the Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway and Ruth and her husband are just so friendly and talkative... I didn't have any complains at all! 5-star-airbnb!

We stayed 2 days with Ruth and Brian and really enjoyed ourselves! Kaikoura is a beautiful town and Ruth's B&B is the best place to stay! They looked after us really well, the bed was comfortable and we had the whole bottom floor of the house to ourselves. This place is highly recommended for both couples and for a small family as there are two big rooms available. There are lots of places to eat in town and despite the earthquake in November there is still a lot to do and see. We will go back again!

Lovely two rooms in the house's basement with private bath. Rooms are set up as comfortable basic b&b's. Beautiful walk down to Central town and the most amazing dolfins swim ever. Would stay again!
