We recently stayed here for the third time in about 5 years. It has become our go-to for quick weekends away in Kaikoura. The cottages are small and cozy, immaculately clean, comfortable (feather duvets and pillows and nice thick towels were noted this visit) and very good value. The bed in the living area arrangement might be a bit strange... More

Position: 15 - 20 min by walk to town center, 5 min by walk to the beach, quite good place to catch up the beautiful... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Our little cabin was spotless and very cosy. It had everything we needed. We had only planned to stay for a night and ended up staying 3! Daryl and his wife are so welcoming and really made us feel at home. We rented DVDs which was a real bonus. Great location. Would definitely recommend.

This is my second stay at the cottages and it was as good as I remembered from the first time. Cottages were sparkling clean and beds were so comfortable! Cottages are toasty warm with heaters and electric blankets provided. Shower pressure was perfection also. Free wifi was an added bonus as well as plunger coffee, fantastic! Thanks for the great...

We were pleasantly surprised by the modern cottages when we arrived. Very clean and new. Really happy with everything, the service was as kiwi as you would hope for. There is some road noise but not too intrusive

we had a beautiful and spacious cottage, very quiet, with a large terrace (sunset view) and a small garden. Barrel and his wife are great hosts and you can rent DVDs and ask for any help. We stayed for four nights and can really recommend it. Thank you, Mirjam&Daniel

Darryl and Raewyn made us wonderfully welcome to their excellent cottage style chalets . Although close to town the location is peaceful and has great views of the mountains. It is also within walking distance of the ocean. The chalets are self catering and there is access to laundry facilities and a barbecue. Although the TV channels are limited, Darryl... More
