Reviewed January 12, 2012

We stayed in one of the two cabins, and we were the only guests. The cabins, the camp sites, and the kitchen all looked out over a gorgeous, sweeping and bucolic valley of ranches, horse properties, and the like. We were free to walk across the fields. My wife appreciated that, despite the proximity of sheep and cows, the cabin admitted no sounds (or drafts). We had been horrified by the cramped nature of our only camping experience at a holiday park in New Zealand, so we really appreciated the solitude and expansiveness of Waikene. The drive to Kaikoura took about 20 minutes.

The bathrooms and kitchen were quite clean, and everything, including the hot water, worked. We had use of a microwave, refrigerator, dishes, barbecue grill, and tables, including one sealed off from the biting flies.

The friendly managers did not force us out at 10 AM.

Stayed: December 2011, traveled as a couple
