          Conveniently located for all the Kaikoura activities. There is a lot of competition in the area, and this property is tucked away and does not have sea views. The owners are really helpful, and Debs can fix up any activity that you want.

          Lovely private motel units in good location with friendly informative hosts. Lovely comfortable bed. Only thing lacking was a hairdryer and thought it was a bit odd having a clear glass window in the bathroom. Would stay again and recommend to others.
