We only stayed one night in October en route to Nelson from Christchurch. I had made a mistake with the date and so we turned up 5 days early!! Fortunately, Rose had our apartment sorted and could not have been kinder or more welcoming.
There had been snow the previous day and everywhere looked absolutely stunning.
We had been to Kaikoura in the summer a few years ago, but South Bay is much more peaceful and beautiful - especially in late winter. We wish you could have stayed longer to do some of the lovely walks.
Thank you again, Rose!
