A beautiful place with a wonderful view to the sea. Location was excellent near the shops and restaurants + service was very friendly, we loved hearing about how the locals live and meeting other travellers.

Not only were the views exceptional, but the room as well! Julie took excellent care of us from walking in the door and until our departure. We loved that it was so spectacularly sited, but also just a few minute walk into town. We had fresh shortbread in our room and breakfast was provided each morning. We loved that everyone... More

The room was absolutely superb, the bed was huge and the best I have ever slept in. And the view from the picture windows across the gardens and over the bay of... More

WOW! The views here were among the best I have ever seen- overlooking the ocean, with the mountains in the background, and whales playing in the distance. The rooms were luxurious and opened up to a perfectly manicured garden where you could sit and soak up the view. We awoke to a wonderful, fresh cooked breakfast with the host and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over Christmas and could not have wished for anything better. Julie was a fantastic host, so friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The view from the bedrooms and garden is beautiful! We had many a cup of tea and (glass of wine!) over looking the gorgeous mountains and blue sea. Our bedroom... More

Bendamere House is a tranquil spot to stay in Kaikoura. I stayed in an upper room that was quite large and had a lovely terrace with a few of the sea. It's not on the main drag so it's quiet but the main street is only a 10 minute walk away. The owner was very welcoming, lovely to speak with... More

The warmth and hospitality of the host just made us feel so comfortable and at home. Room is not very fanciful but nicely done with many small details to make the stay more pleasant. The details count and there are a lot here. View is great too with the sea, mountain. Breakfast is superb. I am a very happy person... More
