We had a wonderful experience here, not just a stay. We wanted somewhere comfortable and a bit special for our last three nights in NZ, and were absolutely delighted with Kincaid Lodge and our wonderful hosts, it far exceeded our expectations. We recommend it without reservation, with the suggestion you try and spend at least two nights here to enjoy...

Everyone should visit Kincaid Lodge. Greg and Jessica are wonderful hosts, we felt we had known forever, lovely people and the welcome we received on arrival was huge! Our room was beautiful, looking out onto the garden, very peaceful and restful. Jessica presented us with a truly delicious breakfast, very stylish and flavoursome. We were so sorry we could not...

We spent a couple of fantastic days at the Lodge and cannot fault it in any way. The room was lovely, and we really appreciated the extra touches of chocolates, grapes, cashew nuts and sherry provided. The breakfasts were freshly cooked, as requested and just great. Both Greg and Jessica made us feel so welcome and we had some great...

Greg and Jessica were lovely hosts. They made us feel so welcome it is a shame we had to rush off in the morning to a whale-watching trip. I'm sure the breakfast would have been marvellous. However, Jessica kindly made us up a packed breakfast to take with us which was so thoughtful and allowed us to enjoy the whales...

We cannot imagine our New Zealand holiday without the Kincaid Lodge and the lovely Greg and Jessica. After 27 / 27 Excellent Reviews, we can only also lend our highest compliments to this unbelievable lodge. Immediately upon entering [without our bags, as Greg carried them in!], we were blown away by the modern and luxurious lodge that they have built....

Absolutely agree with all the other comments about Kincaid Lodge! It couldn't have been better! The room we stayed in was huge with a view to the front yard and ocean. The room my brother and his wife stayed in looked out to the majestic mountains that are a backdrop for the lodge. The "living room" had a free standing...

Driving up to the house I wondered if we had come to the wrong place as it looked so small from the road, how wrong first impressions can be. Inside the lodge is fantastic and very tastefully decorated. The room was spacious, comfortable with a beautiful view of the mountains, the common rooms were warm and well equipped. Jessica and...

We wanted a base in Kaikoura for 6 nights and like others before us, read the reviews of Kincaid Lodge with a touch of cynicism. Can anywhere really be that good? Still, we thought, if it is even half as good as it sounds, it is perfect for us. Half as good? It was twice as good and so much...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip.. And we couldn't agree more with all the rave reviews on this place! We were so spoilt, strawberries from the garden..

Greg and Jessica are very welcoming to their guests. Greg carried our luggage in to the lodge which is adjacent to their own home and even gave us a pager to contact them as we were their only guests on this particular day. We had eaten before reaching the lodge which is a little way outside Kilkoura itself. The rest...
