Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We rented THE LOOKOUT for a family holiday for a week in February 2024. (6 Adults, 2 Children 3 and 7mths) Magnificent views, House was very clean and all amenities were as described. Plenty of room with two living areas was great with my daughter and partner taking downstairs with 2 children and two adult couples upstairs. Absolutely loved the area and will be back.

Apartment 7 is probably the best apartment we have ever rented and we have rented a few in the last 30 years. It was spotlessly clean, spacious, bright / airy, fantastic first line sea views of Kaikōura with a choice of 2 furnished balconies. 2 large bedrooms, 1 with TV, and 2 bathrooms, 1 with excellent laundry facilities. The bed was super comfy with high quality linen. Every appliance worked well. Shining dishes from the dishwasher to hot power showers. Well stocked pantry cupboard with complimentary milk. We loved our time here and wished we could have stayed longer. We were also offered a late checkout which helped us enormously with our ongoing travel arrangements. A short walk into Kaikoura town centre, bus and train station. Lots of whale watching opportunities and local crayfish restaurants in abundance. If you are travelling to Kaikoura look no further. There are a few flights of stairs, with no lift, to reach this top floor apartment which could be a challenge to people who are physically challenged. Other than that 11/10.

We stayed at Mountainview with 3 adults and 2 children aged 5 and 9. Was absolutely perfect for our stay. The highlight was the mountain view and outdoor seating to sit and watch the view. Plenty of rooms for us all, kitchen was very well equipped and location is easy driving access in to town.

We had the pleasure of staying at Kaikoura Beachfront Villa with our wee dogs. The villa is awesome, cosy, mega clean in fact cleanliness was of an extremely high standard. The beds were super comfortable. Well fenced for our dogs. Awesome location right opposite the beach. Easy access to walkways, beach, shopping, food outlets. The house was well equipped, plenty of linen. Excellent shower. Faultless. Kaikoura Holiday Homes are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend this property.

One Word: unbelievable. Unbelievable location, unbelievable treatment, unbelievable experience. All in all everything and more you could ever wish from an airbnb. The host was amazing, friendly, approachable and kind. The home was spotless and the amenities present on arrival (heating was on, ice cubes in the fridge and the beds made) really made you feel welcome. The only down side is that we did not stay more days at this amazing home and incredible place. Not even the pictures serves the view justice. If you think about it, book it! You won’t regret it!!

Wonderful stay at Hideaway in South Bay Kaikoura. Well equipped and great location only a few minutes walk from the sea. Also about 5 minutes from the racecourse if you are visiting at that time. Fantastic view from the balcony and a neat little garden and off street parking. Staff were very helpful with requests for a bit more information. We were just one couple so the toilet in the bathroom did not bother us. If you are three couples you may struggle with this aspect. Lovely smart TV in the lounge of this property with freeview. Do check the HDMI cable is connected to the freeview box otherwise it may appear that it is not working. Beautiful property and we will be keen to stay here again.

Stayed at Rimu Cottage. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. So grateful for places that are safe and welcoming for our dog, he seemed to enjoy his stay and even did some zoomies on the front lawn. Love the view of the snow-covered mountains!

We stayed at Rimu Cottage recently. What a lovely wee cottage, even though right on the main road the road noise was minimal and didn’t disturb us. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm and cosy. It had all the amenities needed. Was great to be able to take our wee dogs. The beds were comfortable. The cottage is quirky and lovely. This is the 3rd time we shave stayed in a Kaikoura Holiday Home managed house and wouldn’t use anyone else. Cleanliness is 100% each time and communication and satisfaction is perfect. Highly recommend.
