Nice B&B with a delightful owner. Stayed one night. Functional rooms with a view to die for (and some cool animals as well). We felt welcome with our 3 months old. Would recommend & would stay there again.

Definitely a farm stay with dogs, chickens, horses, pigs.... A super warm welcome from host Alison who is a character. Room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was excellent. A few kilometres out of Kaikoura but worth it for the farm ambiance

Thank you for your kind review. We aim to provide a country experience for our guests and always enjoy hearing that the animals are a hit with them. We hope you will visit again one day.
