What is important about a weekend get-away is finding a place like Kincaid, where the personal touches and that extra care and welcoming smile tell you that you are very welcome, your stay is special, and it's time to relax. The views of the mountains are very special...moody when they have cloud...very reminiscent of the highlands, and just fantastic when... More

This was our second visit to Kincaid in three years. We just had to return becaue, for us, it is the best cottage we have rented in New Zealand after three trips here. The cottage is beautifully presented and kept immaculately by Jessica, who can't do enough for you. Youreally do feel like an honoured guest. The views of the... More

Being the type that like the quiet but still like to be connected we knew Kincaid was for us. It's positioning is prime. It's both peaceful and still handy to all of kaikoura's attractions. The view from the mountains to the sea, across kiwi farmland is healing and inspiring. The cottage is warm and homely yet is modern, clean and... More

Surrounding mountain view is wonderful. The cottage is spotless clean. Lots of DVDs to watch . Kitchen is stocked with cooking essentials, tea, herbs, hot chocolate, coffee, and lots more.... More

We stayed at Kincaid Cottage rather than the lodge. This is a self contained cottage 10 minutes drive from Kaikoura. There are great views of the mountains and farming on all sides. The cottage is well appointed with generous dimensions, and very private. We used it as a base to do the whale watching and peninsula walk, although availed ourselves... More

We stayed at the cottage which is totally stunning. The hosts had thought of everything from a toy basket to feeding equipment for the baby, access to tennis courts and a fully equipped house. We couldn't have had a happier stay and would love to come back again another time. The locAtion is stunning and we couldn't recommend it more... More

There is nothing we can possibly add to all the glowing reviews already given, but every word you read is absolutely true. Kincaid Lodge was our special treat at the end of a fortnight touring NZ with our two young daughters. We arrived late and cold on the first night to be greeted with an emergency spread of delicious sandwiches... More

We had a wonderful experience here, not just a stay. We wanted somewhere comfortable and a bit special for our last three nights in NZ, and were absolutely delighted with Kincaid Lodge and our wonderful hosts, it far exceeded our expectations. We recommend it without reservation, with the suggestion you try and spend at least two nights here to enjoy... More

Everyone should visit Kincaid Lodge. Greg and Jessica are wonderful hosts, we felt we had known forever, lovely people and the welcome we received on arrival was huge! Our room was beautiful, looking out onto the garden, very peaceful and restful. Jessica presented us with a truly delicious breakfast, very stylish and flavoursome. We were so sorry we could not...
