It is a great place to stay with spacious well appointed rooms, it is very clean and modern and the owners; Patrick & Mary-Clare are very hospitable. We would highly recommend it as THE place to stay in Kaikoura, we will definitely be back.

We were made so welcome at this exceptional b&b. A ground floor room looking towards the ocean. Very comfortable with everything you need, even a small kitchen area with toaster etc. Highly recommend you stay here.

The room was stunning and had a lovely view of the ocean. Mary-Clare and Patrick were wonderful hosts, very entertaining and provided a delicious breakfast with lots of choice. Make sure you try one of Patrick’s boiled eggs - perfect! The location is just a 10 minute walk from town so ideally located. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone

Stayed for two nights during our tour of NZ North and South Island. There are just two very spacious and airy rooms at this modern architect designed beachfront property. We were warmly greeted by Patrick and Mary having driven down from taking the Interisland ferry to Picton. The rooms are on the ground floor and have full height glazing on the seaward facing elevation together with a large side window, giving the room a very nice light and airy feeling. In addition to the super king sized bed there was ample room for a comfortable seating area with a good sized television. There was a spacious en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower and, most importantly, plenty of hot water. At the rear of the room a kitchen range included a sink, tea and coffee making equipment and ample supplies including milk in the fridge, cutlery, crockery and glasses. Breakfast was delightful and served upstairs in Mary and Patrick’s own living accommodation. Ample muesli, fruit, yoghurt, toast and jams together with boiled eggs if desired. Breakfast was also an opportunity to hear about all the things there are to do in Kaikoura with tips about the best places to go, walking, driving or eating. Plenty of information enthusiastically given. General access was through the sliding doors on the front which led to a spacious deck with an outdoor seating area. There was also an off-road parking area at the back. Being on the beach road it was very pleasant to sit out on the deck or stroll across the road for a wander along the beach. The main commercial area of town is a short drive or a good walk away in one direction and the pier and onward to the point, coastal walks beach or cliff top walks, seal colonies etc. in the other direction. So in conclusion a very comfortable first class B&B in a good location and lovely hosts.
