  • This studio is a modern fully equipped place with a parking spot next to the house. Other revieuws complains about traffic noise but we stayed there for 2 nights and did not hear a thing . And slept very well. Easy access to a supermarket walking , the beach and a boardwalk to the whale watching office. Do go to coopers cratch for the best fish and chips in town. Also good WiFi because we could follow the Dutch radio app for a football match in Holland as if it was played next to you. All the best for Emily a quick responder to all my questions .thanks Emily xxx

    Natalie2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Kaikoura is an awesome town with amazing wildlife and this place is right in the middle of it all! It is easy to get all over Kaikoura from this place including just a quick little walk to the beach! It is a studio flat with a comfy bed, a kitchen to heat up some food or do some light cooking, and a clean bathroom! Even though it is facing the street, you wouldn’t know it since there is a lovely bush with purple flowers right out front offering privacy from the road. If you are staying in Kaikoura, this is the place to be!

    Shawn2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot to stop for whale watching in Kaikoura! The place was clean and Emily was a great communicator! It’s is a little loud but we expected this since it’s on a main road!

    Alicia2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very, very well. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the view of the mountains was terrific. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Slight little minus point: the internet has not always worked well; this seems to be due to the proximity to the mountains.

    Our place is close to all restaurants and cafe's in the beautiful town of Kaikoura in quiet tranquil setting 200 mtrs from the sea and and 10 min walk to cafe's. Walkable distance (3 k's) to the seal colony, peninsular walk. Being reasonably close to everything is a big advantage. NO CLEANING FEE.
    It is a large self-contained bedsit with one queen and one single bed. You will have smart TV with Netflix.
    We live on a back section and a short walk to Dolphin Encounter where you can have a boat trip to see dolphins and birds (albatross). It also has a cafe, great for breakfast. Picture theatre (closed since earthquake), cafes, new museum and information centre all walking distance - 1 1/4 kms.
  • Had a lovely stay in Marilyn and Ken’s place. They were great hosts and we had everything we needed for a short stay in Kaikoura. Lots of space in the apartment and nice touches like breakfast supplied. Would highly recommend!

    Sue2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot to stay while in Kaikoura. Walking distance to most things (grocery store is a bit far but still walkable). Comfortable, clean suite with well equipped kitchenette. It was nice to be able to cook a meal instead of eating out. The breakfast supplies were very much appreciated. There is a good sized washer and a dryer (the only dryer we had in our weeks travelling through New Zealand so we were very excited about it)!

    Sophia2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely welcoming hosts and a wonderful place to stay. The suite was very clean. The breakfast tray in the fridge was amazing. There were lots of extra little amenities. We would definitely stay here again.

We provide a full Continental breakfast. Laundry facilities included. Walk ways are handy over farm land to Famous Sea Food BBQ, Seal Colony, Historic Fyffe House. Up on the Peninsula is great views of sea and the Mountains. Wifi is Free
    We are just next door should you require any assistance.
    It’s amazing here on the Peninsula we are thoroughly spoilt with all the views, farm lands, sea and mountains. It’s a nice walk down to The Dolphin Encounter for Coffee. Or walk over to South Bay.
  • Private, modern, big shower, lots of complimentary brekky

    James2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen was a great host the suite have a very good allocation to see sunset and sunrise, everything was good and left us a really good continental breakfast.

  • Maureen and Brian are very friendly and gracious hosts. Their place is tiny but very clean and has everything you need, including a washer and dryer! The view from the front window is phenomenal. Unfortunately Matt and I were under the weather when we visited but Maureen was very kind to offer us some lemons to help nurse us back to health. We would love to stay here again.

    Erin2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen and Brian are super hosts. Their accommodation is super clean with lots of thoughtful touches. The breakfast foods are more than enough - did us for both dinner and breakfast. The bed is super comfy too. The beach is a close walk and a wonderful way to see the Kaikoura sunset. Maureen and Brian go out of their way to ensure your stay is exceptional. Would definitely recommend a stay at this tiny house.

    Judy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is lovely tiny house on the edge of Kaikoura, the hosts, Maureen and Brian are both absolutely lovely and very welcoming. It’s simply decorated and comfortable for two with everything you’ll need for a night or two stay. Kaikoura is walkable if you’ve got the time but we drove as we didn’t, only stayed on a brief night stopover but plan to return to see Kaikoura properly.

    Georgie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable. Well equipped. Quiet. Access to walkway nearby. We cooked for ourselves but good selection of eating places nearby. Too rough to get out to whales but did get 80% refund and got to be amidst a pod of200 dolphins. Wonderful. Kind friendly hosts

    Paul2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We only stopped by for one night but the space was well equipped and had everything we needed. Maureen was a lovely host, we could have chatted to her for days!

  • Our stay at Jane's was exactly what we needed. A nice and budget-friendly place to stay. The room is small, but fine for two people if you're not wanting to spend a ton of time in your room, which we didn't other than just sleeping. Breakfast was delicious and Jane provided more than enough options for us. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for somewhere close to downtown Kaikoura with such a hospitable host. Thanks again Jane!

    Michelle2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Marie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s place was super cute and very close to Kaikoura (easily walkable). Super comfy bed and in a quiet area. We loved the breakfast she put out for us in the morning - incredibly thoughtful and super delicious! Thanks Jane :)

  • We loved our 2 nights in Kaikoura at Jane’s Crazy Stay. It was such a cozy and well styled little cabin! Location was prime, only about a 10 minute walk to town and the beach. Jane was just absolutely lovely and sooo welcoming. As mentioned in previous reviews, it is a shared bathroom and toilet in the main house, but we didn’t mind at all with how welcoming Jane and her family were. Thank you for everything!

    Yolanda2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jane's place is wonderful. Great view of the mountains and you can hear the waves crashing on the beach from the front porch. Highly recommend! Jane provided a great do it yourself breakfast in the morning too.

    Claverley is a unique spot set alongside the natural coastline of this region. Dolphins, seals and the odd whale frequent the area. Moa cottage offers somewhere to relax and unwind while listening to the ever changing sea sounds and the local native birds. Our cottage is comfortable with all the necessities (laundry, dishwasher etc) so you can enjoy your stay. Although there is no wifi, cell phone coverage is good considering the remoteness so you are able to hotspot off your phone.
    Gas provides cooking for the hob and instant hot water. We have a TV with usb ports and builtin DVD player. Sorry no TV channels. Please note: the beach is NOT a swimming beach. If you are prepared to go for a walk down the beach (30 min) swimming is available in the salt water lagoon. Water levels vary.
    Local attractions - salt water lagoon to the South offers a good spot for kayaking and swimming (30 min walk) or venture to Haumauri Bluff up the far end of the beach to a lovely bay where you swim or dive (beach access has now been cut off and is a 1hr hike following a track beside the railway track). Fishing is reported to be good at varying times of the year - Blue Moki, School sharks and Karawhi Other attractions within driving distance Kaikoura - 45 min: whale watching, swimming with dolphins Cheviot - 20 min. : Gorgeous cafes, local art displays Gore Bay - 30 min: Great surfing and swimming, Cathedral Gully Hanmer Springs - 1.35hr: Hotpools, mountainbiking
  • Lovely and cozy place to spend our first night. Amazing location if you plan to be away from it all and have miles of beautiful beach all to yourself. Very comfortable beds and seamless communication. Wish we had stayed another night.

    Nathan2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. Modern inside and feels like you have a private beach to yourself. We stayed here to do the Whale watching in Kaikoura - it's only around 45min drive if that. I would definitely recommend.

    Natasha2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Derrick2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little cottage with all the modern amenities. Very homely. Very comfortable beds and furniture. Very decorative. Quiet and beautiful at night all you can hear is the sea and awesome night sky with all the stars, I have never seen so many. Right by the beach, with a pathway marked out with solar lights. And driftwood art along the way. The ocean is such a beautiful color and lots of sand, big beach. And has the most beautiful sunrise over the beach and sea.

    Donna2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a must stay! We have spent most of our trip to NZ in towns and cities and we were a bit nervous about venturing to the wilderness for two days- we now wish we’d stayed longer! It’s so peaceful in Hundalee and the cabin is so close to the beach which is great for walks. It’s very nice not having WiFi and there’s a selection of DVDs and board games to get back to the old way of life! Cabin is well kitted out and very comfortable. Defo recommend staying here, and if you can, stay more than two nights!

    Anne2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The host is friendly and friendly, the location is good, facing the sea, and the super market is one step away and very convenient. Friends who go fishing in the sea generally go to the restaurant to process and cook, but the landlord is still willing to use her kitchen if necessary, leaving everyone a back door, which is very reasonable.

    We are right in the heart of South Bay, about a 5 minute walk to the whale watch marina where many of the main fishing charters leave from.
  • Excellent location in a quite street. The property was very clean and we were able to cook in or eat out. The free WFI at the library was excellent

You just completely unwind and wish you live in this moment forever. The property is very stylish, spacious and immaculately clean. It offers everything you need, including a barbecue in the back yard. Veronika, the hostess, is a very nice hardworking lady, very responsive. I wish her and her family all the best.

Kitchen and bathroom definately need a makeover, but Emily and Hayden are honest enough to highlight to me about the stains when i make the reservation. View from the house is great as you can almost see something from every corner of the house :)

  • Stayed here for two nights and walked about ten minutes to the center of the town. It would be more convenient if there was a car. There is a three-bedroom room with a bunk bed. If you bring children, you should sleep happily. The bedroom and living room are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped, and there is a small yard for clothes. The toilet and bathroom are separated. The disadvantage is that the bathtub is a little dirty, and then there are more bugs. The landlord is very enthusiastic and basically responds to any needs.

    Maureen2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Emily and Hayden’s house is in a great location, just a short stroll from Kaikoura’s main street and all its amenities. The house is well equipped and stylishly furnished with a great garden and deck. There’s loads of natural light and beautiful views towards the bay and surrounding mountains. Communication was easy, comprehensive and quick from start to finish with Emily and Hayden on hand for anything we might need before and during our stay. A smart choice for families or groups visiting the area.

  • An extremely comfortable and classy place to stay. The website doesn't do it justice; the rooms are hotel standard and overlook a lovely garden, complete with decking and a bbq for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining and living area large. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and wished we had booked another night-especially given our whale watching tour got cancelled! Jennifer met us with a warm welcome and was on standby for any questions we had. Thank you so much!

    Heather2019-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay in Kaikoura - the views are stunning! The home has a great outdoor space to relax and take in the views. Easy drive into Kaikoura to all of the main attractions. Would still recommend having a car to make it easy to get in and out of town. Nice continental breakfast with toast, fresh fruit and cereals. We would stay here again!

    Close to the sea and Kaikoura Peninsula walk, this self contained unit is light, sunny and warm. A wonderful comfortable bed will be a welcome relaxing place to rest while you enjoy the delights of Kaikoura. You also have a lounge, kitchen and bathroom to yourself, with off street parking and a deck with seating. There is also a lawn and a gate you can close for child safety.
    Light, warm and sunny lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with laundry and a clothesline.
    South Bay is the hub of all things sea related, a short walk to the marina you will see Whale Watch Kaikoura, Encounter Kaikoura and fishing boats going about their business for the day. It’s interesting to watch the activity, there are seats with great views. The peninsula walk is 3 hours round trip and is mostly easy with a little moderate in places. There is also a shorter route if you follow the path in from the domain, just 10 minutes from Tui Rest. You can walk to town via this route and taxi or walk back on the easy paths. This one goes via the Pier Hotel, highly recommended for lunch or evening drink with a fantastic view of the mountains and township.

  • Nice location, near the heart of Kaikoura. Very clean and quiet place, we didn't hear any sound at night.

    Maxime2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment quiet, close to sea and centre, good price, very comfortable bed, outsidetable. I enjoyed the stay very much in beautiful Kaikoura.

  • Comfortable and cleane! Perfect

    Carlantonio2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot! Good location to walk into town, to the beach, or to the peninsula trail. Comfortable bed. Lots of soaps and lotion etc provided, which is nice when you are on the road:) the place has a cute little patio to sit out on and enjoy breakfast. Jess was very friendly and she went out of her way to make the room more comfortable. When we first arrived it was a bit hot because the curtains were open and the sun was shining directly into the room (this was the only time the temperature was to hot because the remainder of the time we got a nice sea breeze in the room), so Jess got us an extra fan for our time. Very nice about it! Thanks again Jess! I would stay again.

    Lauren2019-02-15T00:00:00Z

    Relax with coffee on the deck of this delightful, rustic bach, located on a private stunning beach. You are likely to spot seals or dolphins on their travels. There is always plenty to see and do. Fishing, cricket, reading, puzzles, etc. For shops head 40 minutes North to Kaikoura or 30 minutes south to Cheviot for spectacular wines and art filled cafes. Please note: do not swim at the beach -the lagoon is best for summer swimming, located south of the cottage. (No pets).
    If you have toddlers, please note: The sea is out the front of the cottage, and there is no fencing around the property. Also no laundry room. Small beach bonfires are permitted away from tussock only in low fire risk seasons and best on a calm evening. Not in summer sorry. A bach is a term for a New Zealand holiday home. It is not a fancy hotel. It is an isolated place of beauty where simplicity is part of the charm. Furniture is clean but not brand new. Perfection is not the goal. Staying at a bach is an opportunity to enjoy peace, family and the outdoors. No pets.
    Claverley is a small, quiet seaside holiday spot, surrounded by farms and quaint historic railway houses.
  • This place is absolutely stunning, perfect location on the beach, peace and quiet, dolphins in the shorewaters. Highly reccomended to anyone looking for absolute peace and quiet and tranquility.

    Quinton2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, far away at the nice Black Sands Beach. Could see many Dolphins and even Sea Lions. Go shopping in Cheviot or Kaikoura before going to the place. Would go there again, definitely recommended.

    Steffen2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • Great location right on the beach. For a break without WiFi and in a simple hut by the sea just right. Tip: find out the opening hours of the refuestation before, we had to carry our garbage unfortunately long in the car, because they had (only three days a week open).

    Laura2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • This seaside home has great decking & seating all round to enjoy the weather & views. You can be on the beach in 10 seconds! There is plenty of space inside, its fully equipped, the queen bed is comfortable, & the home & it's location really gives you the holiday vibes.

Just 15 minutes walk to town and 2 minutes drive. Some activities you will enjoy are: whale watching, swimming with dolphins and seals, kayaking, and walks in the Kaikoura native bush.
    Our house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 2 Queens and 1 single bed. If you book for 1-3 persons you can only use 2 bedrooms (1 Queen and 1 Single) and 1 bathroom space. But if you book for 4-5 persons you can use the 3rd bedroom with en-suite. The price is for 2 people, $30 for each extra person.
    You will enjoy Kaikoura sceneries, activities, seafood, a lot of very good restaurants and cafe.
  • If you want soulless modern streamlined sophistication this isn't for you but if you want to slip back to yesteryear family beach shack this us the best...fabulius position comfortable..we loved Bon's place.

    Christine2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Adrian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Bon’s little home in Kaikoura was such an amazing find for us. It was in the perfect location—right between the two areas of town we frequented. The back door opens right to the beach, it was so beautiful. We loved our private time as most of our other stays in NZ were at hotels or with a B&B host. The house was so clean and cute. Things like local brochures, and soap, paper towels, etc. are not included so be aware of that, but the listing does basically say this so it wasn’t a big surprise to us. There’s a pharmacy and supermarket closeby that can serve those needs. I would highly recommend this little slice of heaven!

    Stephanie2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view from the lounge. Comfortable, clean and cosy. Kitchen and bathrooms are modern, but no essentials supplies provided. We couldnt work out TV and Stereo and the stove wasnt heating up enough to heat up a pizza. Comfortable beds, nice deck at the back of the house. Great location and communication was excellent. Loved Kaikoura!

  • We stayed at room no. 4 which was at the end of the e-Motel unit. Check in was super easy as there is a digital key pad. The studio was very comfortable and stylish, just like the pictures. There was tea, coffee, sugar, and some creamers in the fridge. Mints were in a bowl on the coffee table. There was AC/heater combo unit. While we were there, the weather was rainy and cloudy. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the beautiful mountain view until the morning. Breathtaking. The bed was very comfortable and there were multiple outlets for charging. It was more like a boutique hotel, rather than a personal space. Exactly as noted on AirBnB :)

    Melanie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
