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 views from the property and rooms are amazing! Plus... Very nice breakfast with hot ham and cheese croissant plus toast, fruit, cereal, yogurt, and jams. We even had homemade shortbread in our room too! Plus... We were given homemade scones to take on the road with us. The house is just above the town and has a nice walking... More
