We had the pleasure of staying in this very different property on 18th January. Our room was up a tree some 30 meters above ground with views of the sea and deer farm on one side and olive groves on the other. The room was sumptuous with a spa bath for two at one end of the room and a wood burner at the other with two loungers either side. The comfortable king sized bed was in the middle. There was even an iPod on a speaker base with great background music already programmed in.
Dinner was superb and I had the local speciality crayfish which was delicious. Kiwi crayfish have no claws and have a thinner shell than lobster so much easier to extract the meat from the legs!!
The weather however was not good so we missed out on the many things that you can do in Kaikoura. We will definitely go back there but spend 2 or 3 nights rather than 1.
