Available for rent, individually or together, are two separate fully furnished self contained holiday homes in Kaikoura, New Zealand.
Each "bungalow" has:
Two bedrooms with all linens provided (1 with queen bed, 1 with two single beds)
Fully equipped kitchen (stove with oven, full size fridge + freezer, microwave, dishes/cutlery/pots & pans etc)
Lounge with TV/DVD/stereo, double pull-out futon and a single daybed
1.5 bathrooms (1 with shower stall, toilet + basin and the second with toilet + basin and washing machine)
The bungalows have private porches with partial sea and mountain views and off-street parking with room for a boat.
They are 50 m from the shoreline, a short walk to Dolphin Encounter and a 10-15 minute walk to town with numerous options for drinks and dining.
Kayaks are available for rental to the experienced.
We live on the adjoining property so available for local knowledge and pick-up from train/bus.
Each bungalow can accommodate up to 6 people. Please note that we do consider children to be people :) so must be included in your total head count. Any uncertainty please send me an inquiry before booking.
If the calendar indicates unavailability on a date you wish to book, please make an inquiry as the system will block out the date after booking only one bungalow. The second bungalow could still be available!
The bungalows are quiet, clean and spacious. They are great value. Why stay in a cramped motel room when you can get an entire holiday house for the same price?
Everything you could need in a well organised space. Good location and helpful owners.
What a beautiful, modern, spacious, bungalow with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, dining, 1. 5 bath, and a laundry, all beautifully appointed. The porch runs the length of the bungalow, and a wonderful spot to eat breakfast and watch the sunrise. You can see and hear the ocean, but a block off the main drag. Blue Heron it is the most quiet, private, spotless, comfortable place of the 6 we stayed in NZ. Susie and Billy have a lovely garden, and they graciously share their fruits and veggies. They know everything about the area, so be sure to ask questions. You won't find a better deal and such a beautiful accommodation in Kaikoura. It is about a 10 minute walk from the center of town, perfect. We could happily live in the bungalow.
Lovely large Bungalow, with plenty of space and everything you need. Super good location and we had two good days here. Good and easy contact with our host Susan and she agreed to change our reservations at short notice.
A great stay! Spacious, tranquile and a very hospitable reception!!
We absolutly enjoyed our stay at Susans B&B. We had a really relaxing time there. The house was very clean, plenty of space, close to the beach and to the local restaurants. It´s a lovely short walk to the city. It was really perfect and we can definitely recommend it. Many thanks for a great stay. We´d love to come again.

We had a great 3 day stay at Blue Heron Bungalow. The welcoming front porch, spacious living and dining areas, well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom with access from either the master bedroom or hall, second bedroom, and laundry room with an additional toilet were the perfect base from which to explore the Kiakoura area. Susan was a most helpful and friendly host--sharing bounty from their vegetable garden, and agreeably adjusting our fee when one of our group was unable to come at the last moment. Blue Heron is a great value and highly recommended!
Getting to this place, after driving and stopping overnight for a few days was bliss. After whale watching, I was able to rest fully and Susan gave me fresh fruit and vegetables for my stir fry that night. The local fish and chips was great too. A lovely stay!!
We had a great time in the blue heron bungalows. There is so much space, a big kitchen with everything we needed to cook our meals, a large open livingroom with a lot of light from outside, a comfy veranda, nice bedroom and a bright bathroom. Everything was totally clean and we enjoyed our three days stay so much. If we had more time we would have been glad to book a few more nights- kaikoura and the blue heron bungalows are really worth it. Susan is a nice and helpy host. We highly recommend staying at her place!
We had a nice stay for 2 days. The bungalow was spacious, clean and quiet. There was every thing we needed for our comfortable stay. We definitely recommend staying at her place.
Susan & Billy were great hosts. I arrived by bus in early evening and Billy very kindly met me at the bus stop, and then even took me to the better, farther away, grocery store so I could buy from food. The bungalow was spotless, and Billy offered recommendations on best places to eat, etc. My stay was too short, and weather turned too windy for me to get everything done that I wanted. So I hope to come back to Kaikoura, and would most definitely stay at the spacious bungalow.
